A while back I wrote about what I considered to be 7 Non-Bike Products Essential for Bike Commuting. Some might disagree, but I find listening to podcasts while I commute to be enjoyable. Those that disagree cite safety reasons. I completely agree that safety should be a high priority and I would never ride with sound in both ears. So one essential commuting item for me is an earbud.
At first I just put in one earbud and tucked the other one into a pocket. Eventually I just hacked one earbud off because no matter how I tried to tuck the one I was not using in, it invariably would end up getting tugged and would cause problems. My solution certainly worked, but I was sacrificing one channel of sound.
One reader of the post commented about a product called One Good Earbud that seeks to solve the one channel issue. I reviewed the One Good Earbud site and after exchanging messages with the owner, he generously agreed to send along a few samples for me to test out.
I will spend a few weeks trying them and will write a review when I am done. Big ups to Kevin who runs One Good Earbud. If you are a One Good Earbud owner please feel free to comment on your experience.
