I also find OC relaxing (must be something to do with the sound of my own breathing) and technically I suppose I enjoy its simplicity, (demand valve, fail safe etc). I also like being able to, relatively inexpensively, screw a set of regs onto a tank and go diving without the real risk of poisoning myself!
Don't get me wrong, I think the breather technology is amazing and the diving future looks bright. I just don't think it's for me
LOL, you still hear your own breathing, as well as the pop as the mushroom valves in the loop open and close. Rather than being a loud, mechanical sound, though, the sound of your breathing is a soft sussorus. More like a sleeping sound rather than how you sound after running a couple of miles.
someone (I cant be bothered to check who) said "rebreathers are cool toys"
Rebreathers are not toys.
