Because outside is so loud, and I don't want to blast my headphones to compensate and wreck my hearing. This is especially true when I'm on the subway, but also when I'm just near it, or a truck goes by, or a bus, etc.

My compromise in an outdoor walking situation is to just put one earbud in and leave the other one off, mainly so I can still hear the noises of outside properly.

I feel like that would be the opposite of what I want.

It's too late for me, my hearing is already wrecked. But at least I can listen to my headphones on the subway.

I definitely have some sort of mild form of tinnitus and it's definitely no good. I don't know if it was sourced from listening to things in headphones/earphones or blasting music in my car (could be both) but yeah, have to live with it now.

I have the little Klipsch buds, and they're actually pretty good at noise-muffling without making you actually miss important noises like buses bearing down on you.

Also don't forget to throw the cord over the top of your ear so that the music isn't competing with the vibration from the cord knocking into your clothes!
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.
