This 1 gig mp3 player is all you need if you don't wear a helmet. Behind the head style, NO wires, easy to pause to talk up the lift, Long play time, holds around 300 songs, oh and it's 20$. I get mine tomorrow. I'll let you know how good it sounds.
dosent help me out since i have already thrown down $400 on my ipod touch. they look like they would be nice for riding though.

That's hilarious because I also have the Ipod touch. I really got sick of the wires and didn't want to shell out the cash for a bluetooth adaption on the Ipod.

look up one of these in youtube and you will get an idea "jailbreak ipod touch" or "jailbroken ipod touch"

and as for how to do it, there are some good tutorials on youtube, but here is a site that has a lot about it.

iPod touch Fans forum

and sorry for hijacking the thread. anybody else got some suggestions for useful headphones that can plug into a ipod or mp3 player thats decent for boarding?

Well guys, I can say for sure that the headphones stay on your head.

I took a bad fall on a pretty tall up, flat, down rail. Board slipped out in front of me and my head hit the rail first. No helmut, ripped my hat and goggles off. Somehow fucked my knee up after the 5 foot drop. But all that aside, the head phones stayed on!

Get a pair of Skullcandy Icons. I got a pair at Windells over the summer from one of my friends and they're awesome. Last so long and they're really durable. Basically made for riding. The sound quality's great.

Otherwise, look at these sites. You can get them here:

- Home - Skullcandy
- Sennheiser USA - Headphones, Wireless, Microphones, Noise Cancelling, Reduction, Aviation, ANC, ANR, Audiology Systems, Headphone Listening and Microphone Usage
- http://www.sonystyle.com/
- Amazon.com: Over-the-Head Headphones - Accessories & Supplies

Just search around. Look at audio-phile and music sites.

I did look at some skullcandy, but I found perfect ones for me. I was wondering though, what makes them made for riding? What features does it have.
