5 Pairs of headphones. In a span of hmmmm….lets see….. well….. *whispers* about 8 months. Yes. That is the number of headphones I have ran through. I mentioned that to someone and he, in a priceless expression yelled, ‘are your ears acidic???’ This is the point at which I would probably have punch the living daylights out of him, but considering I’ve been baffled beyond words myself, I did the grown-up thing and pondered the question. I still have don’t have an answer yet. I need to visit a lab and do all those litmus or whatever tests that we used to do when we were young and blissfully ignorant.
See the most painful thing about the headphone/earphone thingies is that some were gifts. And some I spent a pretty penny to acquire. And the entertaining bit is that for all of them, the right ear phone is the one out of commission. I have toyed with the idea of doing mono vs. stereo listening of music or just clip wires hither and yon and try to patch right and left phones and hope that something works. Luckily, I’m a little too lazy to do that so I’ll just haul my behind to the nearest, cheapest dealer of earphones and get me a pair. Hope that it lasts at least a couple of weeks. O and feel free to send me the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. I promise I shall frame them and just look at them and never expose them to my acidic ears.
