one day at a time

day 133: crazy horses

The other day Ezequiel and me went to he mall again to buy some headphones for me. My black Sennheiser PX 200 died the usual cable death after just about 2 years and I decided that 4 years with the same headphones were quite enough – I used to have the same ones in white. It took me ages to decide on a pair and the ones I wanted after reading reviews on the internet weren’t available in the electronics store. Well, in the end I went for some with not so good reviews, Sony MDR-ZX300, because I found them quite alright when trying them out at the store. First of all they fit me, which is hardly the case for my small head. As for the reviews I guess they just don’t sound right for people with bigger heads. Granted they are a touch too heavy on the bass, but most headphones are and it’s hardly enough for giving bad reviews. Unlike speakers headphones are very subjective business and in the lower price ranges the differences can be quite big. After trying them out extensively for a couple of days I can’t say anything bad about them. Especially for electronic music they’re really quite good. Comparable to my old Sennheiser ones with about half the price and way better cables.

After that success I took a picture of a little carousel in the mall. I actually found the smile of these horses quite creepy. However, I also don’t like clowns or amusement parks, so all of that might seem creepy to me.
