Depends on my mood really.  If I'm relaxing doing figures and  old school stuff its classical or light Jazz.  Freestyle its anything from blues to rock to swing jazz to........  Well I do like my variety Tongue

If I'm in the mood for something quiet and relaxing it's usually something by Ludovico Einaudi.  If I want something a bit more aggresive, usually Mogwai.

This is going to sound stupid, but usually, because I'm around music allllll the time, I just listen to the sounds around me.
Occasionally I'll play something on my car speakers for like 5 or 10 mins, but usually I just like to listen to the wind and the trees rustling.

Btw cgreguich73, if you're interested in flying this summer, I'll be home in Michigan. Not sure if you come over to the wednesday night flys at schoolcraft in plymouth, but if you haven't by all means drop by! We'd love to have you and fly with you.

Hopefully looking forward to meeting you soon!

I don't fly to music. It cuts down the chances of converting a lemming into a future flier.

You won't hear them if they come up from behind to converse or mug you either.  Huh

I`m a musician and some of the flying time is spent listening to music....however mostly it is music and/or sounds I have to learn or am working on. It is another "listening room"....what do things sound like on an mp3 player with little ear buds..... I feel very fortunate to be able to use kiting as part of my work per se.
I`ll also listen to a podcast or two of some radio shows I may miss.
Other than that, I like to hear whatever sounds are or aren`t around me....that`s music enough.

I'm not a fan of earbuds either, there's usually a tune or two in my head competing with the voices already. I do enjoy being in a venue with a sound system blaring though, anything the DJ puts on works for me in that case. Ancient to classic rock/pop that I know or something mellow recognized or not in that case.

I love music while I fly and my MP3 is full of everything from MGMT & Rage Against the Machine to Tychowski & Beethoven.  I usually don't get to listen much because others always seem to want to come out on the field and chat....or I would rather talk with my kite buds that I only get to see once a week if I am lucky.

I am quite selective about sound quality and lately I have found that Skullcandy ear buds are awesome!  I did just pick up a pair of Shure buds that I was told sound incredible.  I will have to do some comparisons to see how they stack up to the Skullcandy ones.

Those that do listen to music, what have you found for ear buds / headphones?

Most of the time I prefer to listen to the kite. When I do listen to music, its got to match the conditions. Flying an SUL at dawn requires different music than flying a standard on a blustery afternoon.
For ear-buds I prefer Etymotic Research.

I prefer to hear the approaching dog before it reaches my kite so no music for me.
