I’m not an MP3 person. I got my first MP3 player when I was in 6th grade and was appropriately dependent on my subsequent iPod parade up until the awful self-doubt-finding-my-identity years were over. At that point, the chord was cut. I can’t say why. I suppose I just didn’t need the dopamine hit anymore, nor a good reason to ignore my surroundings and the people in them. Pfsh, high school, amiright?
My iPhone, Anders, has very little music on him. He’s got that shitty U2 album that forced itself on him, all the Taylor Swift to ever happen– some of which I actually paid for– and a few Nicki Minaj songs (duh). I had the complete works of Meatloaf in there at some point but I found it kept me single.
I haven’t listened to an MP3 since, I don’t know, the last time I went to the gym maybe? Gosh, that was a long time ago. (I should really cancel my membership, but paying the monthly Fat Tax makes me feel better about not going.)
I’m going to be honest here: I only needed to try these earbuds out for a day. The other 13 days were all on me. I never realized how much I hated unraveling earbuds, plugging them in, running them under my jacket or shirt, and situating everything so they don’t pull. I really do hate it. I HATE IT.
These little guys wrap around your neck from ear to ear and you forget they’re there. I only just stopped myself from wearing them into the shower more times than I care to admit. It’s a damn good thing I check myself out in the mirror every 8 minutes on the minute. (They’re not waterproof, but I really wish they were.)
They plug in and charge via USB and connect automatically via Bluetooth to your phone. The right side has a microphone for phone calls, of course.
