MP3 Player Recommendation?

Postby NYKiter » Sun Mar 02, 2014 10:12 pm

Never used one while riding (probably somewhat hazardous), any recommendations?

Most of the guys in my area get waterproof ipod shuffles from this company.

They're solid, they usually don't put in both headphones during launch/landing but ride around with both earbuds in.

I've been kiting with music for a while.
There is no need to buy an expensive set of waterproof headphones.
Buy a cheap pair at CVS 10 bucks. In my experience, They will last and perform the same.

I have been using many brands in the past 5 years, I recommend
jlab waterproof headphones, about $40-50 on amazon, light, no annoying wires, excellent sound, 4 gig. Just add a leach so you will not lose them.

This is the one I use, I like it. $20 for mp3 player + headphones. I can't imagine spending much more on something that's going to take slams kiting and get bashed in the waves surfing ... B00AMBIP22
