Nietzsche said of it; “without music, life would be a mistake.” Kerouc told us that “the only truth is music.” Rhianna asked for it to never stop and Johnny Depp said “music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.”
I listen to a lot of music – getting ready in the morning; in the car on the way to and from work; during my work outs and at the end of the day when I’m getting dinner ready. I used to be wedded to dance music but like many* the older I get the more refined my tastes become and the more I want to listen to different singers and styles of music. One of my favourite music quotes is from Bono who said: ”pop music often tells you everything is OK, while rock music tells you that it’s not OK, but you can change it.” I like his thinking – my taste becomes ever more rock focussed as the days go by…!
Surfdome was a recent discovery for me as I was browsing various online stores for some of the bits and bobs I need for my trip to the US next month. A lifestyle store, Surfdome have a great selection of brands organised according to categories such as holiday and travel, fitness, fashion clothing and even snorkeling. I found these Wesc headphones which have been on my coveted list for a while now, I already own a retro pair of DJ style headphones but this Oboe style by Wesc is a modern design with a wide headband across the top that is comfortable and made of sturdy material. The padding on the earcups is also sturdy with a nice soft leathery feel to them. I chose white because it felt the most modern of the colours available but if you don’t like to stand out in the crowd whilst you listen to your music you might prefer black.
Or there is always neon yellow, just sayin’.
If you have a trip coming up or need to replenish your wardrobe Surfdome might be a one stop shop for you if you’re active and sporty. Click HERE to head to Surfdome.
