I'm a big fan of the ipod shuffle when I go boarding. It's so tiny I don't worry about it. I went and bought a refurbished one from apple. It was like $30 and came with all warranty, boxes, instructions, charging cradle, earphones etc. I never worry about breaking it.

I have a new itouch that I would never take boarding with me...too costly to replace if I broke it.

a shuffle sounds like a great idea. no screen to break and so tiny.

you can get cheaper players than the shuffle that have more capacity and actually have a screen

The Sansa e2XX players are around for dirt cheap these days. FM tuner, expandable MicroSD slot, metal backing, easy navigation, decent battery life, and the best part.............

[drumroll please]

no fn itunes. Just drag and drop.

agreed.

A few reviews put that thing over the shuffle in sound quality as well, in fact they said it was one of the best mp3's they tested for audio. Plus the sansa is cheap, has a display to actually see what you're doing and a life you can add or take song from as well as much more friendlier to transfer songs instead of using Itunes software all the while, just click and drag in the pc.

can anyone comment on these helmet earphones? are they removeable? hows the quality?
Mine are removable but so is the connector. So if you didn't want the ear flaps in you can take them out and you can also just take out the connector and have the flaps still in. The quality is fine for me, I turn it up a bit more to be able to hear it better. In ear headphones have better quality (for obvious reasons) in my experience but I use the helmet one because it's easier.

/\ X2 The IPOD Shuffle is tiny and you can put it anywhere. Has not screen and is damn near bullet proof.

I have used an iPod shuffle and keep it in my glove or mitt so it is easy to change the song or pause it if I like.

That's interesting. Can you take a picture or give a more detailed visual on how you achieve this? If its comfortable, it sounds like something to try.
