I refuse to put them in my ear. they cause ear damage...and I value my hearing Tongue

I use them occasionally, but I find them very uncomfortable and I have trouble keeping the things in my ears.  I much prefer the old-fashioned, closed-ear headphones.

I don't think ear buds hurt your ears any more than any source of noise - its the volume that  counts..

yes that was my reference, not the fact that they sit in your ear it is the volume and so many walk around with it way to loud.

You can walk around with them quietly too. I must say, the only type of music I ear-blast with is classical ^^

Discovered I can plug my iPod into the car radio. Saves having everything on different CDs.

ah yes but that can be dangerous if the music is loud as you can miss something and crash. one young lady laast year who was going to take over the job of running the Australian Dance theatre walk behind a reversing rubbish truck because she did not hear it... Undecided suffice to say she did not survive and she was on 29

Depends on which earphones you use.  The ones that come with the ipod hang on the outside so you hear ambient sounds too.  However, the ones I use on an airpliane fit into your ear and expand so that there is nothing but the music.

Sorry about the woman -awful story...

that's why i never got on with ear phones or walkmans. used to cycle in London  and ambient sound is too useful to be blocked out

Actually, what I meant is that the buds physically irritate my ears, even when no sound is playing.  I don't know why, but I've never had any that didn't do that to me.

Ditto--I don't know if my ears are just too small for them or what, but I can't use the in-ear buds.

It may be the size - one of my friends couldn't wear them either until I bought a set that had a much larger range of plugs - with the smallest one she was perfectly happy!

See if you can find some it may solve it

I'm not too worried about it because I don't go about in public with a music player very much.  I mainly have it for work, home, and business trips.  For all of those purposes, closed-ear headphones suit me fine.

so far we have found it really hrd to find somethign that suits us, so now we adapt our training to suit the music on offer, and if we need to do something different V counts or I count to keep us in time when other music is playing. Tongue

we find it easy to dance whatever we like to whatever is on.  INdeed, of late its working better to dance a waltz to a chacha as it allows us to dissociate from old habits...
