    Yep.

    When I'm with my girls (they are 7 and 10 years old) we're blasting KidzBop versions of new music. They are both beautiful goofballs. We'll pull up to a stoplight and they'll lean out the window and sing to boring old ladies or 300 pound truck drivers alike. They may as well be on stage at a stadium. It's hilarious.

    As for myself, I like blasting ridiculous music, especially at stoplights. It's a blast to look over at the expressions on people's faces when they see me (long hair and all) blasting out Air Supply and singing along... or some ridiculous bubblegum pop song from the 60s or 70s. I'll even hold up rock fingers and smile at them while belting out "Muskrat Love" or "Afternoon Delight". It's great.

    So, I look like this....
    tenor-1.

    ....but my music sounds like this.
    tenor-2.


    It's great. :roflmao:

    That used to be true, but now most Bluetooth is CD quality. Some is even 24-bit/48kHz. If you're listening to MP3's, it doesn't make a difference anyway. They already sound like :poop:.

  9. Yes, but only if it's War Pigs by Black Sabbath. I just can't help myself.

    I've hated every set I've tried but I'm open to suggestions if you know of a good set. Provided they won't fall out out when I'm jogging.

    I don't use earbuds for the same reason. My ears must be shaped funny because none of them stay in. I use over the ear headphones.

    I was just saying that Bluetooth does not inherently mean that the sound quality is worse than wired.

    Mid 50s and bumping my tunes like I just don't care. :bassist:

    I like the looks when it's something that doesn't jive with my looks :roflmao:


    Soooo, does anyone play bass lines on their shifter? heh

    The leather on both of mine are pretty worn. I usually don't notice, but my wife will chime in once in a while " You're doing it again babe."

    I never, ever listen to music in the car.

    Driving is such a gut-wrenching life crushing experience I wouldn't want to bring music into it. I need music after I turn the car off.

    Depends on the vehicle and weather. One of mine doesn't even have a radio. Another has a big kicker sub and a 1000W amp, one is factory. Good weather with the sub cranked and beating in my chest is a great feeling.

    I've owned too many suspect vehicles where listening for mechanical failures was far more important than another round of album X on the tape deck.
