ZEN STONE AND HEADPHONESIan, How much please? David -----Original Message----- From: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Ian Macrae Sent: 08 June 2007 12:14 To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [access-uk] ZEN STONE AND HEADPHONES I've been using some headphones which are recommended for use with the Zen Stone player. They're the Zen Aurvana in-ear ones. These are noise reducing rather than noise cancelling. In other words, they fit very snugly into your ear and claim to knock out about ninety percent of ambient noise. I've now used them for listening to music on the Stone, an audio book on the courier and the courier's own doubletalk speech. They work very well for all of these things. I'm conscious, of course, that many listers wouldn't be happy with that degree of elective hearing loss, but I was certainly glad of them during a heavily delayed Tube journey this morning. One word of caution however, the packaging was without exception the most difficult to get into I've ever encountered. http://www.bbc.co.uk This e-mail (and any attachments) is confidential and may contain personal views which are not the views of the BBC unless specifically stated.
