Music

Listening to (often times crappy) music through garbage earbuds or crappy helmet headphones while skiing

Cool Jer!
I've got some instruments as well. Jamming

Anybody remember Astrotunes? It was like skiing with a walkman taped to your chest hooked up to a stethescope.. think it was actually the first sport type of walkman.

Then came the "Bone Phone" LOL!

Well put.

The best point made on this thread so far.

You forgot to mention the fact that the music is also compressed and that makes it sound like crap as well.

I stand corrected. I hoped he was kidding. But on this board, sometimes it's hard to tell.

Picked this up for last year and love it! It's wireless with an adaptor for the ipod which is nice, but the best thing is the controls. Large buttons on the ear pieces pause and play as well as answer phone calls, and the ear pieces rotate. ( Best Feature Ever ) Click one forward and back to change tracks and the other to adjust volume. These large round speakers are easially grabbed with even the thickest of mittens on, and make changing tracks and adjusting volume much easier than any of the other remote type devices i've tried.

Crgildart, I had an Astrotunes, or Astraltunes not 100 % sure of the name. It was a large player, covered with dense black rubber. The music sounded good to me. It had built in rechargeable batteries. I used it until the batteries failed. Do you have one for sale?

Have 9 days back on the mountain after 15 years. Too busy figuring out how to ski again to mess with tunes yet , but I will ....

FWIW, I only listen on the way to the resort or in the locker room when I want to tune out my co workers. :

On the slopes = no tunes.

Yeah, I only listen on the slopes. When I'm driving to the resort I'm too busy drinkin' booze and putting on my blindfold.

No tunes on the slopes to tune out the students?

I'm not really liking extra stuff tied around my head while skiing most of the time, just occasionally. But, I do think it is cool sometimes at events when someone sets up a massive PA out on a good bump run and blasts something with a good groove.
