In my ear

I have new Etymotic 6i in-ear headphones. They rule. It is going to take a little bit of time to get used to having earplug-like inserts in my ears, but I really am amazed. The amount of detail I’m hearing from my MP3 sources is unreal, and CD’s are jaw-dropping. Plus, they’re white so I can maintain my iPod “white supremacy” ’tude.

Is it just me, or are white ear-buds some sort of badge of coolness these days? I found them to be awful, and chucked them into the back of the closet and stuck with my old reliable Sonys. They’re nothing fantastic, but at least they manage to block some surrounding sound and I don’t have to constantly put them back in my ears at the gym. Stupid ear-buds!
