Right now, I’m listening to a Jimmy Buffet album – using my Zune pass and Zune software on my PC. All day today I had my Zune plugged into my speakers at school, and while my students were working I was listening to music I’d downloaded on the Zune. It’s great because I can keep it near to my keyboard and just press a button to turn it off.
I thought using one device was a really good idea for a long time. I was using Napster To Go with my phone, and the quality of the playback sucked, selecting music was a pain, downloading was a pain, and finding the music to play it was a pain.
The Zune works SO much better.
Though, if they come out with a version that has bluetooth so I can use bluetooth speakers, I’ll be buying a new one and this one will be for sale. In fact, I’ve just ordered a bluetooth transmitter from Amazon (Sony) and I’m hoping it will solve the problem.
I have some Jabra Bluetooth stereo headphones that I bought from Buy.com and really love them. They are light weight, no wires, and very good quality play back. I like them much better than any of the earbuds I’ve tried or even the over the ear type.
My pass renews this weekend and I’ll be able to “buy” more music which will be nice. I am hopeful that the renewal process will be smoother – last month I got to school without “renewing” my music and very little of it was available for play. That was a bit disconcerting.
And … almost forgot … really wish that Audible.com worked wirelessly like the Zune software does. Or that the Daily subscriptions would work more seamlessly.
