A Day...

I've said elsewhere, I'm not a fan of these new fangled headphones The Fruit Company ships with their iThings.

Sure I guess they look nice, but they kinda hurt my ears and I cannot get these new ones to stay in my ears. AT ALL. I had these things in my car just in case I needed to listen to an iThing somewhere.

Well yesterday was the day. Stopped in my local for a pint or two and they were playing some shit music or basketball or something. And I could not for the life of me get these things to stay in my ears.

Today, I was casting about for something to take their place in the car and I came upon a set of Bose™ in ears I've had laying around here for a long time for pretty much the same reasons. They hurt and they fall out. So I put them in their nice case and put them away. I found them (and the two sizes of ear tips that came with them. And I've still got the same issue. But they have this really nice case.

I've got earphones and headphones galore. Always looking for that perfect fit. I finally started ordering 3rd party tips for my favorites from Comply Foam. They make them to fit just about any set of 'phones. Made out of the same squishy type material they make earPLUGS out of.

The Apple things are going in the shredder the next time I have it plugged in. *laughs*

At any rate I got to looking at the nice Bose™ case and one of my other pairs of nice feeling and sounding 'phones. Tried to fit them in the "nice" case. No go. Bleh!

So I modded the case. With POWER TOOLS. Just a Dremel. But I hope the downstairs neighbor wasn't home. It was a bit noisy. But we do love our power tools. Haven't decided whether this is an up cycle or a down cycle. But it is definitely in the vein of Recycle, Reuse, Reduce.

Nice sounding too: Spider International E Series E-EAPH-0001

They can live in my car for now. Neatly.

I've got a nice set of Bose in-ears I'd be willing to part with. The Fruity ones? Trust me... You don't want 'em.

Bonus! Collapse )

With all my stress and crap I've kinda the the cave go. Hence the name change from La Casita de T's. Now that things are looking like they may flatten out I guess I'ma start paying a bit more attention. That started today. Rearranged the closet in the bedroom. Pulled a cabinet outta there so I can make better use of it.

Jeebus! Things might actually get better around here! Look out world!
