Speakers for a bike

Speakers for a bike

Postby Biking POD » Thu Jul 17, 2014 1:41 pm

I don't want a discussion about whether or not we should have music or podcasts or radio or whatever when riding. Or we should enjoy all the sounds around us. Or be listening out for cars.

I want to know if anyone has speakers to listen to an iPod whilst riding. The only ones I can find to sort of suit are these:

They look ok but would like to know if anyone's tried them or do you have any other suggestions?

Cheers now!

My dad bought our daughter exactly just that from overseas. Not the same brand but this one. Takes an mini sd card has volume. Can play from bluetooth and local sd.

doss ds1209

Sound quality is very good, in fact just as good as the build quality.

I use these..... They say water resistant but there covering there butt there water proof as these are my touring set and they have held up to tropical downpours. Not cheap but pump out a great sound plus easy to operate. Using a cable extends the life and I have gone way past there recommended times even if using blue tooth. Don't know how long the talk time hold out for I don't gas bag so don't know.

With the link you provided I wouldn't expect much in the way of great audio sound or being water tight too long plus exposure to our sun during summer would soon make that plastic case become damaged.

So is there some sort of bracket to attach it to your handlebars?
