I tried my Neptune on my belt earlier, and it works really well on there. I used the waterproof head-piece as it has the longer cable. I clipped the cable to my t-shirt collar, and bingo, i could move my head about without pulling the head-piece off. That’s quite an achievement for me. My next play around, was, connecting my MP3 player up, putting it on random play, and sticking it in my pocket. Brilliant idea! And it works.
My Neptune clipped onto my belt. Can easily reach the controls from here, and if you have a battery issue it’s quite simple to remove off the belt. If it’s on the armband, then that makes it a bit fiddly.
Above shows the waterproof headpiece, with the cable attached to my t-shirt, this could also be a shirt collar. I found this so much better, with a bit of slack cable i could move my head without pulling the headpiece off.
Below is showing the MP3 player set up. With the MP3 player connected like this i can sit in the quite coach on a train and listen to music, without disturbing anybody and if a person says no personal stereos allowed, ha ha, my question will be, can you hear the music and see any headphones sir? I can see some confused faces happening!
From next week i make ,my return to work. So i am now getting my ear used to the longer life batteries, they are a little bit bigger, and a tiny bit heavier, not a great deal though. When i first tried them it was making the top of my ear sore as it wasn’t long after activation, so the site was still tender from the operation. I am now starting to get used to them as its now 2 1/2 months since the operation, so it’s not tender anymore.(Where has that time gone). I put the battery on yesterday at about 0830, and when i went to bed around midnight last night, i was still getting 2 flashes when i checked the battery, that’s perfect for work. The smaller standard batteries i normally need to change over at around 1830ish when i switch on at 0830. I will take a spare smaller one with me though, as a back up. Plus I’ll have my Neptune with me (so i can confuse the passengers in the quiet coach, tee hee heee) as a back up. Below are 2 pictures to show the difference in Battery size:
