Now guys, please excuse my ignorance - but are these tracks that you might listen to whilst skydiving? I'm new to this sport, about to start my AFF in a few weeks, but have been wondering about this.

Perhaps audio enthusiasts could confirm whether IEMs isolate sound well enough to withstand wind noise at exit/freefall. I imagine under the canopy wouldn't be an issue here at all.

I have a feeling I'm going to feel quite silly for asking this.... :D

How on earth has nobody mentioned "Jump Around" by House of Pain? It even starts with "Pack it up, pack it in, let me begin..."

Also, JamesBond, to answer your question - I'm still quite a newbie, but I think it's generally accepted that headphones while jumping is a bad idea. In addition to our visual altimeters, a lot of us use audible altimeters (it's a very important habit to always be aware of the reading on your wrist, but it's easy to get a little distracted when trying to nail that formation with your buddies or that freefly position you're trying for the first time, so a bit of backup is useful), and listening to music could easily get in the way of hearing those.

Hmmm. I wonder if more experienced jumpers do jump to music. I imagine that tracks that one is very familiar with could actually help with timing - you know like "it's time to open the chute when the chorus kicks in" lol.

As a noob, not contemplating doing this at all, and can see from what you say Dr DM that the distraction can be risky. Perhaps one day I'll be able to answer my own question
