Sony MDR-XB950N1 EXTRA BASS™ Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
If you know me, you know how important music is to me. In order of importance – God, Family, Friends, Music. Music has always played a role in whatever I’ve gone through. I have playlists for specific moments and specific people. Music played an important (well, I think) part of my courtship and eventually winning over of Corrie’s heart. It has helped us cope with the stillbirth of our son. I connect most to the Divine through music. So I think you get the point.
Laying in the hospital bed for days on end becomes tedious, and the earbuds that come with iPhones are more than annoying. Having to choose between charging your phone or listening to music usually ends in a failure to do either. Plus when your skin turns against you and your ears develop small lesions, those buds are just not friendly to a sick person’s plight.
Enter my good friend and musical Jesus, Jeremy Sawatzky, to save me from such horrible things. His gift of the Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones went way above and beyond what I imagined a pair of headphones could do. They sound fantastic, they are comfortable, they are wireless so allow me to have my phone charged all the time, and they knock out the distractions of the outside world.
One way these have come in handy in the hospital, is when you have three roomates, two of whom like to watch or at least have their TVs on all the time, and one with a strong case of dementia. At 3 in the morning I found myself so frustrated at my lack of being able to sleep that, without music on, I turned on the Noise Cancelling headphones and just lay there in silence, finally able to clear the distractions and focus on falling asleep.
In short, these are probably one of man’s greatest inventions, or at least to me they are.
