If you’re like me, you enjoy listening to music every now and again. There’s nothing more fun than being able to blast your favorite song out of your car stereo, or pumping it loud and proud from your home boom-box.
But what is one supposed to do when they want to listen to music, but the surrounding environment isn’t too happy about loud noise interrupting the silence? If, for example, you’re at a library and want to jam some tunes, you’re likely to be kicked out if you try playing it through a portable stereo.
Thank heaven for headphones, the wonderful little devices that allow you to listen to your music on-the-go without bothering other people!
Headphones allow you to listen to all sorts of things, at any time, even if others are around. Need to make beats from your in-home studio but don’t want to bother the roommates? Put on some headphones! Riding the bus from Los Angeles to Chicago and want to hear a podcast you missed? Put on some headphones!
Another good thing about headphones is that when you’re wearing them, they give the impression that you don’t want to be bothered without you having to say anything. You don’t even have to have the headphones connected to anything – just have the cord going into your pocket and people will assume it’s connected to an MP3 device. That way, if you’re walking somewhere or going through a crowd of people, you won’t be stopped by salespeople, homeless beggars, or people who just like to talk to people they don’t know!
Ah, headphones… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
