out of curiosity, what do everyone use to listen to music with when boarding?

I've seen people use waterfi ipods but just wanted to see if there are other suggestions out there, thanks!!

Back in the day I got a waterproof case for my iPod. Worked pretty well but I think my iPod eventually died because of it (due to shock on the hard-drive when I fell, it was just on an arm-band). There's some companies out there that make cheap, flash-based MP3 players. Can't hold a ton of songs but good enough to put a playlist on and won't break due to shock from falls.


Alternately, just turn it up real loud in the boat!

I use an H20 audio armband and headphones for the majority of my riding because I ride behind an 03 ProStar with some sacs and a pylon.

I tried the armband waterproof pack but hated the slight tugging feeling you occasionally get because of the wires, especially when really boned out in a flip. I got the waterproof iPod but it broke when the metal contacts rusted; sent me another and the same thing. It also tugged since it was in my pocket, which also made me nervous fort losing it

Anyone tried the one they are selling at actionaudioplayer.com? It says it's replaceable which sounds good after shelling out $249 for the iPod.
