Pretty cool alternative to headphones

I was browsing around the ol' interwebs and came across these:

http://luckybums.com/musicstrap.aspx

$15.00 says "weatherproof" (although who knows how durable). And just straps on any backpack straps to provide speakers right next to your ears. No need to take earbuds in and out every throw. Obviously other people will be able to hear them though. But for casual rounds or tourney cards where no one minds, these seem like a great $15 to spend.

I didn't check any shipping rates, but there are other places online that sell them. This was just the manufacturer's website.

edit: Meh, it's still under $30.00 even shipped. If they are good sound quality it's still a pretty good deal.

I just pop a X-mini II in one of my bag compartments and turn it up to 50%. Any higher and I'll disturb people on other holes. I do have to take it out and charge it once a month, but it sure beats going through 12 AA batteries every month.

For me... The main reason for headphones is to keep me from getting distracted DURING my throw. I usually take them in to chat between holes or whenever I'm walking with my bag on, so this sorta defeats the purpose.

You get what you pay for. I use the goal Zero stereo pack its the shiz! It also cam with a solar panel to recharge it last for atleast a couple rounds depending on sound level and it gets loud as ****.(so loud it will piss ppl off far away ) Must say its a good product.


Worth every penny!And when I go hikin the solar panel charges my iphone and other stuff.

I'm pretty skeptical about the sound quality and max volume level of these backpack speakers, but I have great confidence that the slightest jarring when you put your backpack down will degrade the (already suspect) quality of these.

Maybe I'm just a cynic.
