I always thought all headphones were made the same, but I finally learned the difference this summer. I’m used to the flimsy earbuds that fit into my bag and are easy to take on the go with me, but I still hear everything going on around me. I find it hard to focus on what I’m listening to, whether it’s a podcast, a song, an e-book, or even a show.
This past summer I took a trip with my family, and the airplane provided earbuds. I couldn’t understand why I heard just about everything else going on in the plane except for the show I was watching. It just didn’t make sense. After my husband fell asleep, I borrowed his Sony Noise Cancelling headphones because it was easier to keep them on my head than the earbuds in my ears, but I was not prepared for their quality. Once I put them on, even without anything playing, The whooshing sound of the airplane, people talking, and cranky kids all faded away. All that was left was the show I was about to watch which came through the headphones with crystal clear sound. I was impressed and finally understood the hype. I also stopped making fun of my husband for lugging around big headphones with him!
