Hello fellow Riders !
I'm currently studying Industrial Design and I´m doing my final project about BMX and the use of earphones/headphones. I would appriciate if you would take a look at a survey which aims to get a broader analysis of people who do BMX, MTB and similar activities.
Thanks in advance to all who choose to participate !
Can't take the survey, but no way in hell would I ride with earphones.
(I studied with ID people in school. Seeing what went into the projects, I can't imagine this is going very far.)

Just took it. There is no way I would ever wear headphones while MTBing. I do sometimes where them at super low volume while commuting on the local MUP, but that is a whole different situation where I am only going around 15mph on a paved path that is 10' wide, not a single track with trees with only 3' between them.

I could never ride with headphones in. Especially if I were road riding. I would definitely get hit by a car...haha

I love to ride with my headphones... Here are the reasons:
- keeps my ears warm ( I ride year long )
- it's more fun biking while listening to good music ( my volume is set to min. )
- If you riding with someone who is talking too much it helps
- also, wind noise is mutted ...
Even while listening to the music, I still can hear cars + I'm using rear view mirror. I feel safe, comfy and happy ;-)
