I am a new biker ( Diagnosed with Diabeties, loosing weight and loving it) and photographer by trade. I am looking for feedback to a question about wearing ear buds while biking.
I find that when I use ear buds while biking the electric cable hanging from the buds creates a sort of "Harmonic" ( like a guitar string) and I hear the wind passing the cable as I move forward quickly. I only wear buds while on a bike path devoid of cars.
I wind up turning up the volume to drown out the noise. Can anybody else who has the same issue please reply as I need some feed back to see if it is a universall problem, or am I a sort of freak with particularly acute hearing at the low range of sound? I think helmut straps and Sunglasses straps ( what a tangle mess) also add to the noise near my ears but it is the buds cable specifically I am addressing here.
It is also possible to hear this sound if wearing buds while it is windy and I'm not moving forward. The buds act like a sort of speaker to transfer the sound of the cable from the wind harmonics to my ear directly. ( like the classic kids toy of two tin cans and a string connecting them.)
All responses are very helpful and appreciated and will allow me to have a fuller understanding of this finominum, or I'll realize it is mostly me and it is not an issue that needs a "Fix."
