Listen Up: Four Instances You Have to Have Headphones
Cellular devices and music players are ever-changing, but the need for headphones will always be constant. Whether they’re in- or over-the-ear or wireless, they’re just as important as your smart phone.
You should never leave home without a pair of headphones. Only when you don’t have them on you will you realize just how necessary they are, especially in situations like these:
During Your Daily Commute
Unless you live in a city where owning and driving a car is a common luxury, public transportation is your only option for getting to and from work. Being packed into a bus or train car is the worst, even more so when riding with crying babies and other noisy riders. Make your morning a little less terrible and tune everything out with noise-canceling headphones.
On the Open Road
Road trips always seem like a great idea until you find yourself cramped in the backseat with everyone else’s luggage, miles away from your final destination. When you’re traveling with multiple people, figuring out what type of music to play that everyone likes is no easy feat. Stop arguing over radio stations, queue up your own playlists, and plug in your headphones for a smooth ride.
In Your Cubicle
The soundtrack of your office isn’t one that doesn’t foster productivity at times. Coworkers are typing feverishly away at their keyboards, your boss is speaking way too loudly on the phone—it can all get too distracting. A pair of headphones will help you stay focused and make other employees less inclined to bug you when you don’t want them to.
At the Gym
Encouraging yourself to get up and go to the gym is hard enough as it is. Then, once you get there, the loud clanking of the weights and machines is almost intimidating as the grunts from the people using them. Get into your own zone with a pair of headphones that lets you set the mood for your workout and really push yourself beyond your limit.
One of life’s greatest regrets is forgetting headphones when you need them the most. Buy a pair before it’s too late.
