I love music, hate earbuds. No matter how cushy I buy them they always make my ears ache after a little while. So I’ve resorted to the “headband” kind. Much, much better, but here are my complaints–one I feel dorky. Two, I can still hear all the ambient noise around me (compliments of the ladies gabbing at the table next to me while I try to work).
I finally found a solution to my dilemma from the company Able Planet.
These foldable noise-cancellation headphones are lightweight, have in-line volume control (meaning it’s on the cord, not the headsets so it’s easier to adjust), great sound quality and, well, they’re pink! So cute! However, if you’re not a pink person you can find them in a bunch of other colors.
These are also a great idea for your kids, because in my non-scientific opinion it’s safer than having music booming straight into their ear canals. Oh, and the headphones also come with a soft carrying case, which is much, much safer when I toss them in my catchall bag. -Betsy
