I think I’ve had a conversion moment. I’ve seen the error of my ways. And I may never go back to those plain but trendy white earbuds again.
I’m late on every trend, as I’m cheap and refuse to buy things unless they’re on sale. So, I imagine that the fact that old fashioned earphones are back in vogue is reeeeeal old news to most of the Western world. But I have acquired a new-convert’s passion for the sound they put out – have you tried these things? This pair that I have isn’t even particularly nice, but the sound I’m experiencing is so much richer and more textured than what I hear on earbuds.
And the rest of the Western world says, ‘Uh, yeah. Duh.’ Well, pardon my enthusiasm.
As I’m too cheap to buy a second pair, I may have to fight my daughter for these pink pretties. That’s a battle I’m willing to wage.
