Think if you will, a nice trip to the shops on a balmy summer’s day. This isn’t a tension filled, hunger-enthused outing to your local supermarket followed by bitter finding that the bastards have set their costs up AGAIN…I said that this was a pleasant journey. You head out into the warm, dazzling summer afternoon searching for milk, some eggs and perhaps just a little treat for yourself. You slide your iPod out of your pocket and…and…Wait a second, the wires all twisted up.
Gimme a second.
Through the time you’ve untangled the wires, you are out of a pleasant mood for a walk, you have abandoned that spur-of-the-moment jaunt to the park you were toying with and also you do not need to hear any tune whatsoever. In reality, it’s too damned hot for any of that. You do not wish for a pleasant, nourishing tossed garden salad or Spanish omelette for dinner, you will just swing by the local grease trap on the way home. Furthermore, there is bills to pay for and housework to complete and advice to find using your partner. Have you even cancel the journey to the stores completely. The milk isn’t that lumpy in the end and you may make a perfectly pragmatic Spanish omelette from flour, water and spaghetti hoops, true?
Avoiding this kind of thing happening to you, you might want to try guided deliberation, therapy, or self help books which can inhibit little things like a knotted headphone cable sending you spiralling right into a profound, shadowy depression. But, if we can’t be troubled with all that New Age hocus pocus, then why not get yourself a set of Bluetooth in ear headsets?
Bluetooth in ear earphones do not require a cable, all you need to do is slide the tiny beauties from the compartment, pop them into your ears and take advantage of the ride.
Picture our little sun-dappled situation again, this time without the cable fiasco.
Your walk is agreeable and comfy, the warm sun gently caresses your face and here doesn’t seem to be a cloud in the sky. A beautiful member of the opposite sex smiles at you (no doubt drawn to your spectacular choice of headphones) and everything seems right with the world. Perhaps a tossed garden salad becomes dinner and dancing? Perhaps a quick flutter on the lottery becomes a mansion and a pool house. Who knows?
I will liberally confess that not any of the situations above are particularly probable, but, I will also say that with a set of Bluetooth in-ear headsets, at the least the cables will not get jumbled in your pocket and infuriate you on the day by day basis. That has to be worth something, right?
