That's exactly what I do Vincent - problem is I can't hear everyone hooting and cheering me on!

Vincent I think you've probably seen it before but this is my setup

http://waterfi.com/mp3_players Shuffle

The Shuffle lasted about a season and a half before getting junked up and needing to be replaced. It was covered by their warranty so they sent me a new one - but now I keep it in a small bag with a jack similar to this in hopes it will last longer:

I tuck it into my wetsuit chest while I ride

For headphones:

Pyle Waterproof $9 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/control ... &A=details

The headphones usually last about 6 months or so of regular riding. At $9 they're not bad as a consumable and work really well on water

That's a bummer indeed. :?

Philly cheese: thanks! I have an old iPod touch (first gen) that I don't use anymore, so I'll try those headphones and the aquapack combo with it.
