In 2005 when I fist got an iPod it was a 20gb 4th gen. Which was right before the color iPod came out, and a few years before the iPod Video came out. This meant that the screen consisted of black text on a white background. This also meant all my music didn’t have Album Art. See I had to rip all the CD’s I purchased, but what was I suppose to do with album artwork. So for the past 5 years, I haven’t cared at all what the Album Artwork was. Sure I have noticed high profile album’s artwork, but nothing about it much mattered to me. I didn’t see it everyday.
Cut to 5 years later, and I have an Android device which I use as my phone and iPod. I listen to podcasts and stream music from Pandora or Slacker Radio. I also have a windshield mount for it. This all means that when listening to audio while driving, I can see album artwork. Its a little thing, but after 5 years its nice to see the work artists put into their album covers.

I listen to music a lot at work. I have an extra long 3.5mm extension cable, this lets me work on both my computer while still listening to music. I can’t have my iPod, so I got a mp3 CD player. I also have rechargeable batteries for it. So basically my cubicle is all setup for nonstop listening to music. But recently I have noticed that my iPod earbuds have been starting to hurt my ears. Anyways I would like to know your opinion on some new headphones. Do you like Over the Ear or On the Ear, and which headphones would you recommend for <$50.
