Bose QC-15 Headphones

Did I tell you I received some Bose QC-15 headphones for Christmas 2012? At the time, I considered returning them because they were kind of pricey. In addition I already had the Audio-Technica’s which are really strong headphones.

I’m glad I didn’t.

These headphones are ridiculously good. There is very little outside noise. The only drawback is, if your battery dies, there is no sound. Carry a pair of batteries as spares. A lot of people don’t like Bose. I don’t know what they’re listening to, but some of them prefer the Beats headphones. I’ve told you and continue telling you those Beats headphones suck out loud…and I’ve tried them more than a couple of times. Tinny, distant and noisy. Not good for a premium price.

Anyway, I have these headphones, a set of AM-5’s, some 401’s I bought from a friend, which are absolutely superb, and my wife has the Bose speaker she just loves.

Tonight on my flight from San Antonio to Dallas, there was a screaming kid sometimes sitting down next to me. The little savage was yelling, standing in his seat, pressing the light switch repeatedly while his father, sitting behind me kept telling him “stop” in the lamest way.

At 10,000 feet, I put my headphones on and the little bastard disappeared until we had to stow devices for landing.

By the way, isn’t that getting old? People have to be told….repeatedly…to turn their s**t off before landing. On a flight from Baltimore to Chicago, one idiot left her cellphone on the entire flight and texted from takeoff to landing.

Can’t you do without the damn thing for 15 minutes? It’s not like people actually like you that much. Smartphones have helped create a generation of weepy, needy young adults who would rather shoot you than talk. They have no discipline.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
