Gift certificate for renewing my standard cell plan? Means my lovely ears get a treat, and my much-anticipated return to my 2.5 hour daily commute (hah) will be blissfully calmer and quieter.

For some reason my cell company gave me 300 bucks to renew my standard contract. It’s pretty generous, and I expense it to work, so all in all, was pretty jazzed to receive 300 bucks.
Which I turned into some high end noise cancelling headphones. The Bose Quiet Comfort 35. I have had them on for less than an hour, and cannot describe the peace of this bubble. I can’t even really hear myself typing on the keyboard, even after the song ends.
I was never one for spending too much on headphones. I lose them. I run in the rain with them. I use them for 8+ hours a day on end, and they simply don’t hold up. I also download all my tunes, but really, having gone through three replacements on warranty from Sennheiser, counts for a lot. (TBH It’s me, not them, love their headphones).
But I spend hours on trains most days. And, I am learning to admit, I am slightly more sensitive to my environment than other people. It winds me up, sets my teeth on edge, and it takes awhile to wind back down. For awhile I was riding in first class. It was great, wider comfier seats, and blissful silence. But it was too expensive to maintain in a lifestyle that includes Christmas’s in Malta, Trek Madone’s, and race fees of up to 400$.
These, these headphones, I think will be a game changer.
