Personal Music Concerts For Everyone In The Local Area


It's whinge time. Shock, horror.

In short, personal headphones, to me, means just that. Personal.

In the age of the iPod and apples headphones (they may produce a rubbish sound but they do a good job at being personal), you would have thought that you wouldn't be bothered any more by having to listen to other people's music in confined spaces.

Alas, today, like most days, there's always one. 50 Cent, Jean Paul, Kanyaye West (spelling?) were just some of the 'Juicy Tracks' that an entire floor of people had to put up with coming loudly from someones not so personal, personal headphones.

They are away with it, tapping their feet, oblivious to the collective groan thats let out each time the track changes. When one guy started singing along sat across from him, he still didn't twig.

Consideration for others needed? Maybe. Education on the fact that a decent set of headphones where most (if not all) of the noise goes into your ears rather than poorly into those attached to the ones around you? Definately.

  1. Having spent a considerable amount of commuter time on the tube this summer, I suggest the tactic of just staring at them. Admittedly this has to be used selectivley, and nor is it for those lacking in confidence, but when they catch someone gazing idly at them with a mixture of confusion and interest, they tend to turn it down.

    Hope this helps.
