One of the Wearable Tech
One of my absolute favorite vinyls to play on my turntable is Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie. On the back of the album, under the credits, reads the disclaimer, “To Be Played At Maximum Volume.” I couldn’t agree more — good music should be played loudly. But that can be hard in certain situations, for example, when riding a bike around town because you need to hear your surroundings as much as your tunes.
Headphones are an option, but they can be dangerous because you can’t hear important queues like other bikes, electric cars and even sirens. A portable Bluetooth speaker is an option, but you’ll annoy people with your music and then you become “that guy.”
