500 CDs at once?  Geezus!

Never had a CD carousel, but my dad has a 5-disc DVD player and it's annoying as anything to get the discs in and out because the carousel never spins around to the right place (AND kept moving slowly when it was open, so you gotta grab the disc quick when it appears).

Sooooooooooooooo, I'm looking into an MP3 player for my walking routine. All I want it to do is play songs or podcasts. So Apple has Shuffle ($49), Nano ($142) and Touch ($189). These 6th and 7th generation iPod's seem incredibly expensive. What do they do for that price. Not sure I need a Nano... except maybe for bluetooth?

Need to find something decent to listen to them. Thinking about something like the Sennheiser PMX685i Sport II.

Can't you put your songs on your Smartphone that you have?

Oh good lord... No. This thing weighs a ton and just bulky.  I don't carry it around in regular clothes.


I guess I needed to mention, it has to be practically non existent light. Light shorts and T shirt for summer. Thinking I'll strap it to my arm or waist. I'm gonna pay for the convenience of ease, light and quality.

So, I've been doing some surfing here and there and I'm slowly funneling my thoughts to this setup.

Ipod Nano (7th generation): It has Bluetooth, so I can be cordless to the headphones. It's tied into iTunes, which I constantly use for music and podcasts. It has a nike app for fitness. It has a radio. 7G because of cheaper costs. I just need to find some ways to carry it. Wrist? Waist/Chest? Pocket?

Bluez 2: Bone Induction Headphones. Every review is very positive for what it can do. I need headphones that will stay on my head. Resist sweat. Wireless. Sits in front of the ears, so I can still hear everything around me while walking... for safety. But most importantly... Not BE IN my ears. I have never ever liked ear buds. In ear headphones of any kind.

Seriously, the difference between a 7th & 8th generation Nano is color choices?

I have some Best Buy rewards and gift card. Got a "Out of the Box" Nano (8G). I also ordered the Trekz Titanium. It's a step up from the Bluez 2. They were sold out at Brookstone, but they are having a Dad's Day Sale, got $20 off and free delivery. Saleslady said 3 days delivery. Taking that with a grain of salt.






Hope this all works out.  :-[

Is that where it rest? Not in the ear?

Yea, it's bone conductive. It sits on the jaw bone. All reviews say it's weird at first but it works. It's not as good as something directly feeding the ear drum, but I'm not looking for that kind of quality.

For awhile I was looking for something that just sits around the neck.

I just have never liked sticking anything in my ears.

I like this guys reviews. He kinda sold me on them.

I just started watching these a week or so ago, I like them too.

I'm actually curious now about bone induction, given my hearing loss.  I wonder if that would bypass my broken/missing ear bones or not.

Yep.  American with a disability.  A really sh1tty one, too, because it's just bad enough to make things really annoying.  I've never had the need to read lips or learn sign language, just lean in and ask other people to repeat themselves.
