I’m Dancing While I Write
Sometimes, there are lovely perks to blogging. Like when you get an offer to review something that is really cool. So the promotional companies send the products to you and you write about them. This is one of those posts.
So first off, I had to admit that I felt a tad bit guilty agreeing to review these headphones. This is not a tech blog by any means. I don’t do mommy centered giveaways or host contests. But I did add a Rants and Raves category when I moved the blog over to Word Press last year. And I did that so I could review stuff when I wanted.
And the thing is, I wanted these headphones. Wanted like lust, I desired them. They looked cool. The concept was cool. Sexy even. And yes, even if I am not a tech blogger, I know blog outreach is a often an exercise in mass rejection, so I also take into consideration that I am helping some unknown previous-work-acquaintance-from-the-“firm”-days marketer improve their ROI numbers so they can defend their daily existence to the company CEO. God, I am glad I left that rat race, but I digress.
As I was saying, I wanted a pair of Flip Audio head phone speakers to call my very own. I was glad I had that review category so I could say yes to this opportunity. I sent what was requested of me; my URLs, my YouTube channel my shipping address. And then, my brain moved on to something else.
Flip Audio; First Impressions Count
A few days later, there was a package at my door and I unpacked the headphones. Very cool shipping, very iPad like. The headphones have this cool egg shaped carting case you know, for when I leave my house. ( That’s a joke. I don’t leave the house all that much) Plus they are black which wins instant points for me and bright green so they kind of match the room. And they fold up. I’m an Internet geek, but not a gadget girl. I don’t need the next best thing. I’m a if it ain’t broke kind of girl, but these things were uber cool!
So I plug them in and find some music. Obviously, from the picture, you can see these are not little ear buds. Think more of the Bose super silent on the Concord crazy lux headphones look. Think little cushions of heavenly love upon your ears. Like sweet lobe hugs.
Ok, I’m not a sound geek either. They sound good. They got loud. It felt good.
And then, if that’s not good enough for headphones, they flip out and become speakers. Like decent loud speakers that have an internal battery and can crank out tunes from my iPhone at the beach. Or in the backyard. Or when I am gardening. Did I mention they were cool? Did I explain how they sounded good?
The Quiet of My Thoughts, with a Sound Track
But the best part is that these Flip Audio headphones really tend to drown out the outside world even when the music is down low and THAT is worth its weight in gold for me.
You see, my house is crazy. My husband is loud and impulsive, my children even louder and very, very strange at times. Our friends live in our basement. There are two dogs, two cats, two rats as well. My mother law and her cousin, known as Aunt Chickie, live literally next door. Sometimes, it can be difficult to concentrate, especially when I am trying to write.
My brain gets going, I’m on a roll..I’m thinking four sentences ahead, my fingers trying to find each word as it floats away, fades like a gossamer soap bubble. It’s a race and I am winning, words flow like water, my fingers brain, computer are all working as one.
Did I mention I work from home? And how I share it with my often loud husband who also often works for home? Guess what happens to the thoughts in my head when I get interrupted over and over agan? I watch them all float away.
And the flip audio head phones allow me to write, muffled, relaxed, I my own special musical world, away from those threatening interruptions known as my family.
How to Get Your Own Flips
Anyway, as far as headphones go, they are big and puffy, but sound real good, look cool and provide excellent soundproofing. Added bonus, instant dance party speakers. Did I mention I am a huge proponent of instant dance parties? No, really. Rye’s been promising me a dance floor deck in the back yard for three years now. I digress, really, they are super cool headphones.
My one wish is that perhaps the cord could be a tad bit longer. I can’t really dance in my desk chair. I can shimmy a bit, but not shake ,rattle and roll. I guess the long cord would be a pin when using the iPhone on the road. I don’t know. Did I mention I don’t get out much?
And for you preppy purists, they come in white too. Ok, they are a tad pricey for my wallet at $120.00 but I am a crazy thrifty bitch. And I guess in the world of decent headphones, its not at all overpriced. Plus, lookie here. I have a coupon to share which give
