Tired of the radio stations getting fuzzy on me... What should I look for when buying an MP3???
Two things two look for: size and capacity.
My son wears an mp3 player while mowing.
His is about the size of a tube of chap-stick and can be worn around the neck (very light weight). I think it's a 64MG player which only holds about 20 songs.
Sony makes the IPOD which has a 40 Gig capacity and will hold around 10,000 songs at any one time. Only problem is the size... it's light weight but about the size of a palm pilot.
I transmit my XM radio from my truck to my head set
I have a Rio brand. Its 128 and will hold about 70 songs, can't believed I lived w/o one.
If you're handy with electronics, adapt a cheap pair of headphones by taking them apart and gluing the speakers into a set of hearing protection. It's tedious, but it works really well and you'll really save your hearing compared to trying to crank it over the mower noise.
A couple of my guys use them when mowing...they love em.
I use an Iriver mp3 player, it has 20G of space, and I think is one of the best sounding mp3 players....I don't know how I could live without it...
how do you transmit xm radio to a headset?
ya i want to know that too......i said the first xm radio that is available in hearing protection will be my next purchase. im so sick of the same radio songs every day. you start noticing the patterns of how they play songs lol. howard stern is different every day, but music on the radio gets old real quick. how do you transmit the xm?
Here is a thread that describes in detail how to customize a pair of ear protectors so you can use them with an mp3 player.
