I can’t tell you the exact number of earbuds that Tim and I have purchased over the last decade. I’m guessing that it’s somewhere around 15. They are SO easy to lose, and they are also SO tempting to our cats, who love to chew right through those cords.
And honestly, these are the two reasons, and the only two reasons, why this trend of going back to over the ear headphones has piqued my interest. I think the sound quality from earbuds is outstanding, so it seems in some ways a little backwards to me to go back to larger headphones. But the cats won’t break them, they won’t be as easy to misplace, and the big advancement with these devices is that they have cordless capabilities as long as you have Bluetooth.
Cordless is the game-changer. And I’m so glad I gave them a try, because they are MY JAM, now. I’m using the Tracks Air from Sol Republic. These headphones are surprisingly light and not at all cumbersome to wear. I really thought I would find going back to larger headphones to be annoying, but the cushions around the ears are really soft, the sound is great, and the benefit of not having cords is HUGE.
The Tracks Air has 15 hours of battery life, which makes them fantastic for plane trips or long commutes or just to have in your bag to use throughout the day as you are able. And should you find yourself in a situation without Bluetooth available, don’t fret, as cords are provided for those sad moments.
Sol Republic even offers a 100-day Money Back Guarantee. That’s how confident they are that if you try them, you won’t regret it!
So have you tried going back to over-the-ear headphones so that you can experience the joy of being wireless? If not, may I suggest that you add these to your wish list? I wasn’t so sure that I would like them, but it turns out that I absolutely freakin’ LOVE them. 🙂
