[access-uk] Re: ZENSTONE - IN THE EAR HEADPHONES

I walk down the street listening to my mp3 player frequently - assuming I
know where I'm going and I'm not in unfamiliar surroundings.  My guide dog
is great.  I tend to stop listening to pay attention when I'm crossing the
road though.

Surely for a totally blind person to wear headphones of any type while
walking in the street is extremely silly as far as I am concerned.

Carol, there are the Zennheizer in-ear ones which are sold by Tapesense.
Creative themselves sell a pair of in-ear noise reducing headphones. It's
worth saying that these fit pretty snugly and claim to knock out about 90%
of ambient noise. They certainly do kill a lot of it, and for that reason
may not necessarily be what a totally blind person needs or wants. I've
used them on the Tube with both the Stone and the text reader on my courier
and they are very effective. But my wife is rather anxious about me using
them in the street. They're sold under the Creative Zen brand and cost
around £40.

Hi all,

What headphones are folk using with the Zenstone that are similar but better
quality to the Zen's supplied headphones. Ideally I need them just slightly
smaller and with a bit of padding and to fit right in the ear.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks.
