Tuning out the noise (and bringing on the funk?)
Oblivion is such an attractive idea when you’re flying. Especially now that it looks like some airlines will start letting passengers use their cell phones on the plane.
Which is one of the reasons I was so sad when I broke my huge, ear-covering, audio-canceling Bose headphones last year. So far, I haven’t ponied up to replace them, but if I do, I might give this option a shot, spotted by Outside Online:
Here’s the deal: After a quick visit to an audiologist (included in the price), silicone casts of your inner ears will be on their way to becoming a new pair of nonpareil earphones that fit you and you alone. Turnaround time is about a week, and when you screw these rugged yet comfortable little numbers into your head, you’ll finally hear your tunes as the musicians and sound engineers intended.
Custom fitted headphones? Yes please. I can’t wear standard earbuds.
