They fixed that with the newer version.

I've used Klipsch s4's, TF10s, davis tributes, etymotic hf5 and some others, my favorite, by far are still my Yamaha EPH-100. I'm in the market for something that sounds as good but with audio controls and a mic. I might go back to etymotics, but I'm not sure how the controls work with Android.

Anyway, I can't recommend the Yamaha's enough!

I haven't yet! I do when I'm alone, and I went with my son both times this season. But yes situation awareness is a problem... I avoid music on crowded days...but raging down powder all alone with the music on is unbeatable.

You could just get a cord for this and plug it to your 'phones of choice.

So, I just got a new Ipod, and damn, the new stock headphones they give you are actually pretty dank. I've never seen any headphone design like it (looks pretty damn space-age) and they end up somewhere in the middle between noise-cancelling and being able to hear stuff. Oh, and they sound great too.

I have the shure se115's I believe they are called and they are great! Talk about bang for buck headphones. I cant imagine how good the 535s would sound

Also have a pair of 535's. Mine are the clears and I stepped on one when it camouflaged itself into the floor Pretty confident I can fix it, just haven't yet.

I had an old pair of ec2's (I believe) and they weren't as good for profile aside from all the other obvious parts. I can wear protective earmuffs over the 535's no problem when I'm at work for even more blockage.
