The Sound of Music

On a Sunny early afternoon, Wayne, in a pale green dress with white apron around his waist, runs though the field of green, waving his arms around.

"The Hills arrrrrrrrrre a aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiivvvvvvveee with the Sooundd of Muuussszzzzziiicccccccccckkk...."

He sang as he spins in circles.


Uh, no. Okay, back to the original scheduled program. Ahem. Today, finally, I received the head phones that were ordered couple weeks ago by our unit. As a new policy, for those who wishes to listen to music at their cubical... A head phone is required, so no sound or noise will disturb fellow co-workers. (lame regulation, isn't it?)

Anyway, I got mine and was quite excited about it. I mean, heck, it's made by SONY, it's gotta be good.

So, I plugged it into my monitor (where the speakers are embedded) and popped in my mixed CD.

Since it is an 'In-Ear' headphone, there's really no foam or cover for the ear piece. I felt like someone stick their pinkies into my ears. But I just have to put up with it, since it's FREE.

The sound quality is very nice, compare to the 99 cents headphone I got from the 99 cents store. (Which, ended up snapped in half after the 5th day of usage, and then I had to tape it back together...) - However, since it is designed for walkman (you carry it on your body), the cord is very short. And it just happened that my trash can is on the opposite side of the cubical... Whenever I lean right to throw the trash, the ear piece would DRILLED deeply into my ears and held my head back. (I kept on forgetting how short the cord is)

So, don't be surprised if you see me with blood stain all over my ears.
