In this post I show how I built headphones into my motorbike helmet.
Since I started riding a motorbike, I gradually took on challenges associated with it, such as riding on the motorway, filtering, and lately – riding with music (sometimes). While it can be considered less safe, it presents a different set of challenges and offers a different experience. Your visual acuity elevates, as you compensate the lack of sound cues from the environment, watching out for more dangers and preempt other road users’ actions.
Listening to music while riding puts the experience many levels up. The tactility of the road, the smell, the wind, are now part of the music experience. Pick the right track, and the ride becomes even more visceral while you massage your cerebellum with heightened senses.
