Here is a meet up if you can make it to Bklyn:

but srsly to good in ears. A decent pair will cut out around 25-30 decibels of outside noise and will make it so strangers don't also have to listen to my Harry Potter audiobooks.

I live right by there, but I don't know anybody who posts in the SW&D area.

I use Bowers and Wilkins C5 headphones. They are pretty great.

I'm on the fence about going

i gotz some Shure SE215-K and like them a lot. The foamy ear buds are comfy and awesome at eliminating noise.

I didn't think I'd like the over-the-ear hoop, but I love it now. Really helps to prevent the infuriating experience of having a bud ripped from your ear after having the cord caught on, like, your finger.

Yeah, I use my headphones connected to my phone to talk to my girlfriend via Skype, and I am generally moving around making dinner and every once in a while the cord will catch on a drawer handle or something and will rip right out. So annoying, and actually kind of jarring and frightening when it happens.

It is annoying normally, but this was very awkward because I couldn't scurry away and furthermore people are looking at us now. Even if I were to give him some money it would have been very cumbersome in the crowded train to put down my bag and rustle in my pockets and such. It would have just been ridiculous. Then the winger comes, he says, "a couple of black guys robbed me." I didn't hear what he said at first, but then he said it loud, "a couple of black guys robbed me." I just told him I was very sorry to hear that, but I wanted to scream, "Racist! Why would you need to point out that they were black!"

When I lived in DC a black woman asked me for money and when I said no she yelled, " All you black motherfuckers are the same!"

Fun Fact: I'm generally not wearing a shirt while making dinner.

Yes, was kidding about the Beats. I like Klipsch in-ear buds except they're not the most durable.

i used to do this when cooking and cleaning and such, but it would still catch every now and then. It's jarring as all hell and usually brings me from a good mood to a shit mood in no time at all.
