Am I the only person that sometimes just wants to rip open somebody's
car door and snatch those stupid headphones off?

I hate it when people drive with them on...You got a stereo in da freakin car!

It doesn't bother me much, but they should just spend the 15 bucks to get one of those adapters to play it through their cars speakers.

I hate it when idiots post stupid threads insulting others about something which does not affect them in the slightest, whilst managing to use incorrect grammar and spelling, thus failing at life.

How does it feel being at the other end of the pool, bitch?

The REAL idiots are the ones that would do such a thing. It's a huge risk, people don't use common sense.

It affects you when some idiot almost totals your car because they are not
paying attention to the road. I have a valid point! It did affect ME TODAY!

Yeah im on the other side of the pool...

We see who is standing on the bitch and idiot side though...

I don't know about other states, but I do know for a fact it's illegal in California.

Maybe it was you that almost hit me...

Okay well you should've explained that in the first post so we could understand why you decided to go off on them.

Listening on the headphones is just as distracting as having the stereo on. It's a matter of volume, not the way it's listened to.
#11
It's about as risky as plugging your iPod into your car stereo, so don't be daft. You still have to change the song etc, so it's equally distracting, but no-one complains about that. Don't blame it on the iPod, blame it on the idiot not paying attention to the road. My mum listens to her mp3 player all the time in the car, and she's never done anything silly while driving.

Wrong. Headphones block out outside noise much more than a stereo would. At equal volume, the listener is less likely to hear a car horn or police siren wearing headphones than if he/she was listening to the stereo.

..yep. And that's why it's illegal to listen to headphones while driving.

It's seriously a bad idea to use your iPod headphones whilst driving. I would say this is illegal in the UK also, pretty sure it is on a bicycle and motorbike, so can't see why it would be different in cars.

On another note, it's a seriously bad idea to use an iPod.

Ear buds can be block out noise similar to the way ear plugs do. They don't
block out nearly as much, but when you factor the music into the equation
it is pretty distracting.

Some live recordings of concerts is almost like being there. That really makes
it hard to focus.

Definitely illegal in the US, coast to coast. How could they not be?

I remember reading that some cities were banning pedestrians from wearing them, when they were just coming out, b/c muggers would basically profile everybody that had them, then pounce. That's prolly run its course, since everybody has and mp3 player these days.

To the guy that posted "listening through ipods is a bad idea", it's only a real issue when you compare it to a audiophile type audio system.

I compared several albums between ipod and stereo, and honestly, I thought the ipod sounded better.

Now, I'm sure that if I had a real kickass home system, there would definitely be a difference, but on most mass produced equipment, good luck tellin the difference.

there is no such thing as good music on the radio though.

Of course it is, as it takes up one of your hands, and eye focus every now and then.

Or $50 on my iTrip :] Its funny when my friends don't know about it and I tell them to turn to some rap station and it plays some beatles.

one time my friend had his zune and was like, "no way thats playing on the radio" so he goes to his radio thing on his zune and cycles to that station and it plays the same thing owned.

It's not only annoying, but stupid and illegal. You need to be able to hear and see what it going on when you are driving, or you are putting yourself and others in danger.

Okay, whatever. You not caring about it doesn't change the fact that it still is a safety hazard for them and other drivers, i.e. you.

And by the way, ending your posts in "kthxbi" and "goodbye" makes you sound and look like a gigantic faggot. Just pointing that out.

Well I really fucking hate it when people say "da" instead of the "the."

I also hate it when people do this "......" when it's totally unnecessary. Like you've done in you're poll.


So quit bitching about what other people are doing and try to make yourself look like less of an idiot.

ugh my ipod adapter sounds so sh!tty in my dad's van. horrible quality... can't eq it properly. the SUV with CDs on the other hand, that sound system pumps!!!! Blasting some LoG, paradise lost, oooo yea!! kickass.

and yea, wearing the headphones is stupid! lots of bikers (bicycles, no motors) do that here. it makes me mad. but if i hit them when they're not paying attention and they're wearing phones, sucks to be them, because they are now equally, if not more at fault. VRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

earphones in your ear restrict your hearing much more than your stereo would though.
thus causing the person to not be able to hear ambulances, cops, or any sirens or noises they would need to hear to drive legally.

I'm sure the people who don't care will when they end up in a wheelchair for the rest of thier lives because some person in thier car was listening to thier mp3 with headphones in thier ears and couldn't hear you.
