Headphones? Sure you may have a set of earbuds that came packaged along with your iPod or iPhone, but have you ever treated yourself to a nice set of noise isolating or noise- cancelling headphones?
I longed to upgrade my earbuds for quite a while. I would notice myself turning up my music way too loud at the gym just to drown out all the distracting noise around me. I would also catch myself wishing for a headphone upgrade while traveling, especially during my most recent Megabus adventure.
Well my luck changed this Christmas when I found a pair of Bose IE2 audio headphones underneath the tree. I couldn't wait to try them out (which was immediately). I was very impressed with these headphones from the start. For not being actually "noise cancelling" they still do a wonderful job of tuning out unwanted noise.
Now I can't go to the gym without them. They allow me to enjoy my music so much more and stay put in my ear no matter what activity I'm doing. They also have a clip so they can be attached to clothing during more strenuous activity like running. This keeps the cords in place perfectly.
Headphone technology is outrageously good these days so do yourself a favor and make the upgrade. Whether you're on a night run with your favorite playlist, or watching a movie on a long flight, you'll thank me later.
