No, in Florida it is prohibited for anyone riding a bicycle to wear headphones. Any head phones, listening devices, or any other thing that would plug ears, it would prevent you from hearing oncoming traffic and from reacting promptly. Therefore, you are not allowed to wear headphones unless these headphones are like a hearing aid. In fact, if you do violate this law, this is likely to be used against you as evidence of comparative negligence in case of an accident.
