Trust me, I have that power supply a long good look.  But, it came down to not trusting my ability to cut the power cord and get the right wires into the right places.  Plus, I love matching gear, so the V-PSU ii it was!  Thanks for the link, though.  beerchug.gif

Not unless there was a new law passed in the last 10 months.

I mean, it's a bad idea, but not illegal. :)

I did get a couple of double takes as I passed people with these huge cans on my head, but boy was I happy biggrin.gif

That is amazing. I wish you'd taken a pic though...probably the ultimate in car stereo regardless of what kinds of looks people were giving you. It'd be better to find an amp with dc input though and run your headphones with it. Rather than convert dc to ac and then back to dc in the power supply again

@MorbidToaster @AHorseNamedJeff @TheCopWhoMightHavePulledMeOver my excuse was that they're open and I can hear ambient noise through them cool.gif, it's not like I was wearing IEMs with -30db isolation ;)  I was also taught that it's a bad idea to wear headphones and I don't do it while driving in the city, but if you've ever been on I-10 E 100 miles east of El Paso at 2:30 AM there is not a whole lot going on. :)

 

One thing I have noticed more and more lately is that a lot of people are starting to wear headphones in their cars while driving.  California has hands free laws and if my dad is any kind of a representative sample the only decent SQ he can get from a hands free device is with a wired headset with an inline mic.  I was surprised how many I noticed while my wife was driving the day shift through Texas (which does not have any hands free laws that I'm aware of).  And I do agree that it's a pretty bad idea to wear them while city driving when more concentration is needed.

Yeah, horribly inefficient but it worked :) I was actually wondering how feasible it would be to build a tube amp for a car, perhaps floating the whole thing in some sort of viscous oil to provide damping or mounting it on oil filled dampers like they use for photography.

I'll have to call the fleet off then... (signals to crowd of horses behind)

I drive with my UERM, it's actually my main use for them, but only on long highway trips, not around town. It's nice to be isolated from the road noise almost entirely and really on a divded 2 lane highway, there's nothing you can't do with just your eyes.

Also my car doesn't have bluetooth or auxiliary input so I'd have to burn CDs of anything I wanted to listen to instead of having access to a large portion of my library via my phone. One thing I'm really looking forward to if I get a new car soon.
