MP3 Players...

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by SpokaneXX, Jun 28, 2005.

  1. What's your weapon of choice and why? I'm ready to buy but the choices are limitless.

    I would prefer AA powered over built in battery. I'd like close to a gig memory...preferably flash w/ability to use SD/MMC cards to expand.

    Would like to be able to set up playlists...but not a must have. I'd, of course, like to spend as little as possible as well. I've already decided on the Etymotic ER-6 ear buds now I just need a player.

    Your suggestions?


  2. ipod 60gb photo is what i have.

    I don't know how true this is since I don't know that much about technology in general (wooooo is me....) but I heard that the Ipods are only good for a couple years because of their built in battery and that once it's gone (the battery) then you have to buy a whole new player.....

    Hey D, did you ever get an e-mail back about the Yepp players????
  4. MP3/CD player Hardly A. gave me. Only works tilted on its side, but that's exactly how it sits in my Roadcrafter, so everyone wins!
  5. iPod 40G - w/ headphones mounted under my helmet padding.
  6. I run a sandisk 512. AAA batterys holds about 8 hours of music, just enough for a long day on the road.

    I don't really think you can lose with anything nowadays. I'd personally steer away from anything hard drive based, since they're more prone to breaking when you drop them. However, I've heard a lot of them are pretty durable nowadays too...
  8. Although it meets none of my specified criteria...the Zen is a serious contender... more on oyur experience with it?
    Can you set playlists? Use the controls with gloves on?

  9. I rock the 256mg IRiver. I get about 45 songs on it. It is good on batteries.

  13. Desmodromic 748, but thinking of getting an MP-3 as well, cheapest possible tho.

  14. But wouldn’t recommend it...$100 after a $50 rebate from best buy, runs on 1 aaa bat (like 20 hours loud, not bad) and I bought the sony mini bud things off the shelf at best buy...30 bucks i think and they work helmet pressure on the ear drums and they seal the ear drum resulting in good base and that’s a good thing if you like speeding to techno

    But sqrew rio…all n all its hard to skip/replay songs when riding...I always end up stopping it or ff when I want to replay because the controls are so damn small! :rant so i just make sure i have a hella play list loaded and not mess with it
  15. I put a big 8 track player on the side of my bike. i love that crisp old time tues that lasts for about 8 minutes.

    whats wrong with listening to the same song 129 times. :mrgreen:
  16. As long as its boy george "Im a man"...nothing at all
  17. or Vanilla Ice "Ice Ice Baby" crackup:
  18. Nooooo! Someone played that a couple times on my camping trip over the weekend. Now it is going to be stuck in my head again. Since I don't have a player, that is what I will be hearing in my head on my 1.5 hour commute home. Thank you very much!
  19. I use the Creative Muvo skiing and other reckless sports and it does well. Even doesn't mind moisture much.

    It uses AAAs and gets about 6 hours on one at full volume. I just carry a couple of them with me and charge 'em when you can. Go to Wallmart and buy the highest amperage NiMH set you can and a charger and you will be set.
