In this day and age, it shouldn’t be so hard to find a decent pair of headphones. I don’t want bluetooth headphones for two reasons. First, I don’t want something I have to charge. Second, I want to be able to use them with my old iPods and they are not bluetooth capable.
I don’t want earbuds. I find myself trying to listen to the TV when I’m really listening to books and then, I’m also knitting and, while I used to could listen to several conversations and do something else, these days it takes about all the brain cells I have to do one thing at a time.
Next, I want headphones that are comfortable. Sometimes I’m listening to a book for three or four hours without taking them off.
Last, I want them to be inexpensive . . as in . . I’m not paying $300+ for a set of headphones. You know I lose everything. I take them off and leave them in my chair. Yes . . you guess it! I come back and sit down on them. I sometimes have them on in the bed and I’ll put them on the nightstand and they often fall off and, occasionally, they’ve been stepped on and then . . I need a new set of headphones.
I asked Vince to help me find something I’d like – not Bluetooth, not to expensive, comfortable for hours . . no! He said “You can do what I do . . google it and find them!” I guess next time he wants dinner, I’ll say the same thing to him . . you can do what I do (but he really can’t!). 🙂
So, I googled and I came up with these.
Let’s home they’ll work. They are Bluetooth, but they also have a wire so I can plug them into the iPods or use the wire if the Bluetooth battery is dead. The reviews said they were comfortable, even after wearing for several hours. They’re red, so they may (or maybe not) be easier for me to keep up with. They were really inexpensive! There was a “clip coupon” thing at Amazon and I think I paid about $26 for them.
They’re supposed to be here tomorrow. I can’t wait to try them. The ones I’m using now are so uncomfortable and I have four books I really want to listen to this week.
