This may sound odd to some of you, but I have more or less taken a break from music for about 2 decades. I used to listen to a variety of music in the past (mostly in the 90s) when I was in high school and mostly when I was driving my car. I used to enjoy car stereo hardware back then too. I installed my own systems, I had an amp in the back with two 12 inch subwoofers in my trunk. But I only listened to music when I was driving because I have some concentration issues when listening to music while doing work that requires concentration. I was a bad multi-tasker. Anyway.. I sit at a computer and type all day and I there is a coworker that sits near me that now drives me insane with coughing.. three months now of constant deep, guttural, bronchitis coughing. Its like a bullhorn going off randomly every 1-5 minutes of every hour of every day.
I recently borrowed Lady's MP3 player and with my skull candy earbuds, I have been able to silence the coughing woman with blaring music in my ears. And guess what! I was still able to concentrate. I believe this woman's cough has broken my concentration wall completely. Loud music is nothing compared to listening to her coughing. Now that I can listen to music again outside of a car, I honestly have no idea what music I should listen to. So I started listening to whatever she had on the mp3 player. Turns out I still like a large variety of music and just about everything outside of the 90s is all new to me.
Anyone have any suggestions for what I should listen to? I've currently been listening to Journey, The Police, Fleetwood Mac, anime soundtracks for Air Gear, Naruto, Fairy Tail and a bunch of other songs. Anything anyone recommends, I will listen to it. I need to figure out what I like again and I won't know unless I check out a variety of songs. I think I'm leaning more towards rock and anime soundtracks at this point, but I'll listen to just about anything.
Since having to help raise kids for the past 10 something years, I have never had the chance to actually own a decent pair of earbuds or headphones because kids would always need new ones, or theirs would break and borrow their mom's just to end up destroying those to.
Anyway, kid free now and I'm enjoying the little purchases again. lol.
So, I bought these earbuds about a week ago for playing games on my laptop:
Skullcandy S2IKDY-101 Ink'd 2.0 Earbud Headphones with Mic
So far they sound amazing and I'm really liking the quality of sound I'm getting out of them.
What earbuds or headphones do you use?
I saw clips of this concert repeatedly this week in the news. And it still looks amazing even now.
Would you pay to watch a holographic concert? I probably would. The quality looks awesome! Maybe they'll make holographic plays with anime characters next.
