My iPod headphones broke a while back. The soundcard in my PC is fucked, my big sony headphones I’ve had since 19canteen have all but given up the ghost and trying to get PC sound through ma stereo is a pain in the arse. So, adding all that up, for someone who basically has a musical accompanyment to almost everything I do- life has been getting really quiet.
I was going to replace the iPod speakers sooner but they cost £25 and thats half a week shopping money for me to stick in my ears. No happening.
So today, I bought a pair of these headphones for £4.95 from Morrisons. I plugged them into my old clunky Creative Zen Touch (nae PC itunes- to much hassle). I wasn’y expecting much because they cost a quarter of what I thought is really needed to get a good quality sound. Wrong.
So here I am, listening to Talking Heads’s Little Creatures album and I have to say I’m totally delighted. I’m sitting here, like a total fanny- headphones on, weans running about causing havoc, bouncing away on ma computer chair…total escapism.
Fucken love it.
