I posted that story in the headphone thread. My general thoughts are the cyclist was a flippin' idiot and he did multiple things wrong. One of which was possibly shutting out one of his senses by blaring his music at an unreasonable level. Another of which was not using the ones he had left available. Like, his eyes.

There are a lot of details missing, though. Unless he was found with both ears blocked with headphones, and music still playing and really, really cranked, it's hard for anyone to say he was totally shutting out his sense of sound.
