Talking Call me crazy?! Who else listens to music while on the field?

Whats up Nation? Not sure if a thread has been devoted to this before or not so here we go... for about the last year I have been listening to my ipod while I play the game we all love. Regardless if its speedball or woodsball I feel listening to music while on the field adds a different element to the game. Its something I persoanlly enjoy and it heightens my field awareness. Anyone else do this? Personal experiences good or bad? Post up

I've done it before. Used to do it with my old mo3 player years ago. Thinking about doing it now but I'm worried about it getting shot.

Yeah that was my intial worry as well. I purchased an arm band from walmart and it sits under all the padding of my jersey and seems to be adequate. Food for thought if you decide to go that route again.

Do you just listen with one ear?

I feel that it would hinder your hearing...

I usually only wear it for streetball on Thursdays which is fine because most of the kids don't know call outs lol

I won't call you crazy, I'll just call you someone who is missing out on approximately 70% (my opinion-based statistic) of what it takes to win a paintball game: communication with your teammates and field awareness.

But, to each his own, I guess. You wouldn't remain on my team long...

It just depends on how high you turn the music up. I've done mine for speedsball with one ear on the lowest setting, but I would never use it in woodsball. (50% of my woodsball game is through my ears)

May be strange but i love having the music cranked up playing woodball. but most of the time i always have someone watching my six and my gun is set up for sniper/ assault, so im normally not to close to people when i shoot.

Call you crazy?
Well you went to my schools.
You went to my churches.
And you to my institutional learning facilities.
So how can I call you crazy?

I listen to my ipod when I play recball sometimes. Still worried about breaking it though.

I'm really interested in how you would manage to keep the ear buds in, how the wire doesnt bug you, and how in the world you manage to play without breaking the thing.

I've always wanted to listen to music while I play but never really thought about how to do so other than something outside the field.

When I do it, I use this Sansa off-brand mp3 player. It's about the size of a quarter, and pretty thin too. I clip it into my pocket and run the wire underneath my shirt/jersey and into my mask.

Music did help my bro become more accurate. I however, don't like to listen to music, because I use my ears as much as I use my eyes. I think it would be funny though, if someone was listening to the matrix soundtrack while paintballing. I used to be able to hear which way someone was coming. Now my ears are blown out from rifles and explosions.
