I have been using the same shitty headphones for a long time (see above). Sorry Sony, I know you’re meant to be good, but this is a loser-product, barely audible at times and frequently cutting out in one ear.
I don’t know why it took me so long to replace them but I am guessing it’s something to do with the overwhelming range of products available. On top of that, I wanted to take my time and make a better choice.
So now I have a new pair of wireless headphones that I have been loving in my last few gym sessions, I thought it might be time to write about music and running.
I am into lots of different types of music and when I was younger, I used to have a five speaker surround-sound stereo that I bought with money from my part-time job. I used to be quite anti-social with it. Back in the early noughties, it was still all about stereos, and everyone used to talk about sub-woofers a lot. The i-pod classic was still in it’s infancy.
These days, I try to be more considerate towards both my neighbours, and my long term sense of hearing.
That is, apart from when I go running. It is on runs that I sometimes really let loose and blast my ears.
Which brings me to my playlist. I actually have several, but this is the first one I made for Zombies, Run! about a year ago. The idea behind this playlist is that it’s a soundtrack to being chased by zombies.
And yes, this is a post I would really encourage you to comment on. Let me know whether I could get away with playing that shit in public, as suggested by irunelite. Tell me I’m a philistine, or point me towards a new band.
Either way, I would really like to hear some opinions on this one (not least of all because this post is little more than a thinly veiled attempt to crowd-source an expanded playlist!)
