I'm not an audiophile, so I don't pay much attention to the stuff they say at iPodLounge
about how this or that headphone is so awesome. Turns out, you can really hear the difference on these new Etymotics
. There are a couple times where I've literally jumped as an instrument came out of one stereo channel, and I've thought I heard something from outside the office, when it was just a subtle noise I'd never noticed before on other speakers or headphones. Subtle little hints of sound floating under the music.
And the wireless keyboard
is very handy. I recommend it to anyone who is at all lazy. It's small, easy to bike home with, light to walk around with, and very comfortable to type on. “Thank You” by Dido from the album No Angel (1999, 3:38).
