Remember a few weeks ago when I went to that Pro Bowl Party... alone... well, it wasn't all that bad. See, one good thing about putting yourself out there is meeting new people who rep different products... and then having the opportunity to get your hands on those products...
Yep. That cool rep I met from Munitio mailed me a pair of titanium coated 18K 9mm gold bullets. For my ears. "The baddest earphones on the planet." That's what she said.
I told her that I use headphones all the time... like everyday... when I'm out training... since so much of my training these days is dictated by my heart rate it can be tough to find training partners willing to go your speed for the duration of a workout. So I love to train with my iPod (Sorry- If you don't I don't want to hear it... :) I make myself good playlists and place songs strategically on them so the fast ones come on at the right times during my workout. What can I say? It's my thing.
But I'll tell you, I never bothered with earphones other than the ones that came with my ipod. Yeah, so they crackle sometimes. Whatever, right? And then the left one stops playing sound altogether so you feel all lopsided and dizzy. Which didn't really matter b/c they rarely stayed in my ears anyway. But I'm easy going. That stuff never really bothered me. It didn't used to, anyway. Before I knew better.
See, now that I have tried these I'm like, all spoiled with the good sound. These things play the bass. Clearly. The sound penetrates your body, without making your eardrums ring, and makes you want to moooove. In a word, awesome.
You know, before I started working for a great coffee company, I couldn't say that I really knew the difference between good coffee and cheap coffee. I mean, add some cream and sugar and it's all the same, right? Um, no. It's not. Now I drink good coffee. And I drink it black. Because good coffee you can drink black. Because it tastes, well, good. Without adding any crap to it. See? I'm a converted coffee snob. And now, it seems, I'm a converted earphone snob too. What is becoming of me??
