Hey all. I was just curious as to what you all use to listen to your favorites while traveling? I am looking for a good way to take my music with me as I frequently travel 4+ hours away from home for days at a time. Thanks in advance.

Maybe you should look into a NAS? A device that allows you to stream everything directly from your home computer (providing you've made digital copies of your collection or indeed buy digitally).

I am one of the low tech guys myself so I'm still using a 16 GB iPod. The sound is pretty good, but then again I always make high quality MP3s, which (I think?) is the most important aspect if you're looking for great sound. That and of course a decent pair of earmuffs.

Maybe you're not too late for a great Spotify deal, which gives you full acces to high quality music of almost every artist which costs you just a buck for 3 months. You can download then if you want to listen without internet connection.
Another recommendation is Comply foam tips of you use earphones, always fit the ear perfectly and reduce noise quite nicely. They are a bit expensive though, but they were included when buying my Brainwavz earphones.

Perfect, thank you all. I think I am going to look more into the NAS that was mentioned as I hate using my phone. I have tried Spotify in the past, but it drains my battery too fast.
