What's your jam?

Post by rcorfman »

What do you like to listen to when out hiking? Saw an ad for the noxgear 39g advertised as, "The world's lightest, loudest, longest-lasting wearable Bluetooth speaker." Currently offered for only $79.95.

Occasionally for repetitive workout hikes, Mozart to Metalica on old school headphones. Light on Mozart.

It's all about the berries. But strawberry is down pretty far on the list.

Like, yo. Check this out. Blackberry, raspberry, Boysenberry - I'm down like the clown.

But you infidels can take your orange zest and shove it.

Nothing plugged in as I too like to listen to natures sounds while hiking but rumbling in my head will be tunes from Skynyrd, Dire Straits, Bad Company, or Blackberry Smoke, among other classics.

Well if I was going to listen to music on a hike I have to go with Joe Bonamassa. Of course most of you have no idea who he is.

I have a $30 rechargeable Sandisk radio/MP3 player which I use for NPR or Sports Radio while walking around the pond at lunch time. Sometimes I take it on hikes and listen to 16Gb of accumulated music on shuffle. One earbud or two, haven't changed the memory card contents in a couple years. Occasionally I'll notice that some albums really resonate on the day.

@Hansenaz Glad to find out I’m not the only one with a sandisk MP3 ,I use it when jogging rather than hiking, haven’t added any music in a few years but plenty on there for the distances I do now, especially since I replay the theme from “Rocky” as I’m finishing.
