So I know this is a weird request, but can you guys point me towards the loudest and leakiest (ie: open) portable headphones available?
The reason I'm asking for these unusual characteristics is because I'll be hiking in an area dense in rattlesnakes, and obviously I don't want to completely block my hearing with my usual IEMs. I thought about just bringing a portable speaker, but the battery life just isn't long enough. Therefore, I'm planning to just have headphones around my neck and listen to whatever sound I can with the volume on high.
Obviously, some of you are going to say that I should just go without music, but it's a 350 mile section hike, so it would be tedious without a soundtrack.
These headphones would be powered by an iPod Nano 6th Gen or a smartphone, which might add another layer to this question.
Thanks in advance!
