Hi there! I need your help. I need new “ear speakers” of some sort. The dude in this photo needs some serious help IMHO…it looks just way too cold to be out running around…
But seriously. I have been using some Jaybird X3 ear buds and I have not been happy since day 1. Okay maybe not day 1 maybe like sometime within the first 3 months.
Connectivity is the worst for these. I think that maybe, if being generous, 30% of the time I have worn these I had zero problems. Otherwise, I am always losing the connection, music or sound breaks up and either Spotify or Pocket Cast will stop playback.
Another issue is I have never been 100% thrilled with the sound. I know that I did not pay a lot for the Jaybird X3, however, I have some cheap headphones & earbuds in the studio for extra guests that have a richer sound.
What I want to do with these new “ear speakers” is wear them when I am out running errands or I am exercising. Be it walking and, if I am lucky enough, again when I am running. The biggest thing is I want to be able to hear the beat over the traffic zipping past me.
I think I prefer earbuds instead of over the ear. Especially in summer; but also for lack up bulk. If I am walking to the pub to meet my buds, I really don’t want to have to drag around my bulky headphones.
Please…share your ideas and links!
I was working at one of the major retailers that sold music when Delerium became popular, Semantic Spaces, with a more mainstream audience. I was a fan of Delerium’s older stuff which was darker, more industrial.
I actually had a “hook-up” ask me to turn it off once because it spooked him out and he was waiting for something to jump out from under the bed.
The vocals for Delerium, much like Dead Can Dance, are often deep, powerful, soothing and often emotional.
I think this song would make the best INTRO song on a playlist. Imagine putting this on, pouring yourself a whiskey, lighting some incense then picking out what you are going to wear to WOW the masses that evening when you hit the town!
Then slowly build the playlist up to wear you are wiggling your butt in the shower just like you were on the dance floor, but wait until you are drying off first!
