I am having the weirdest day today, so in truth, I have absolutely no idea if it’s the headphones that are having this effect on me or something else.
I have no idea what’s going on today. The shock of that wellbeing woman seeing me one way while I saw me another, has sent shock waves through my system that I think have distorted my brain waves.
I also took my second Ritalin yesterday, which worked amazingly well again. I made a good start on my new course work. And it always leaves me feeling more relaxed the next day as well, when I take a Ritalin.
But I’ve been out and bought headphones and honestly, it’s like I’m a different person. But I can’t work out if it’s the headphones or something to do with all this other weird stuff that’s going on.
I’ll guess we’ll have to see. But so far so good. I don’t even want to take the headphones off. I keep taking them off to test what the noise is like without them, and it’s definitely loud. It’s like, it’s no wonder I couldn’t concentrate with all that noise going on. It’s like day and night. However did I manage without them?
And they feel so comfortable. As if they add a level of comfort that I never knew I needed!
I’ll let you know how I get on with them over the next few days, but my first reaction is, how in the hell did I live so long without them? Lol!
I've had Bose QC20 earbuds for about a fortnight now and they are great - took some getting used to though because it felt to me like all the air was being sucked out of my ears! I use them in combination with music or sounds of waterfalls and they do provide a cocoon of quiet even in a noisy office - the only problem there being that even that cocoon gets fatiguing if you have to live in it for 8 hours!
What model did you get & where do you intend to use them ?
I can’t remember what they’re called ~ hang on, I’ll have a look ~ QC 35.
I’m not sure yet, how I’m going to use them, to be honest. I simply recognised that noise, even the noise a house makes (that most people don’t hear) impacts on me, so I figured I’d give the headphones a try. So I’ll be trying them out in all situations and see how I get on with them. Last night, I sat with them on for most of the evening, without music or anything, but with the noise cancelling on, and I loved it.
However, I also recognised that I won’t necessarily want them on all the time. Which is a relief! Lol! I thought I was going to turn into the headphones wearing person! lol!
So I think they’re going to become a close companion of mine, at least for the foreseeable future, as I try them out. I’m going for a bit of a walk to a coffee shop shortly, so that’s two more situations I’ll be trying them in.
