I guess I just stop practicing?

There I was sitting at my keyboard, practicing with my ear buds, when suddenly the right channel goes silent. "Stupid plug," I thought as I reached to the back of the keyboard to fiddle with the angle of the plug in the headphone jack. But to my surprise, it didn't come back. But the left side started cutting in and out as I wiggled it. Hmm. I hoped it wasn't a problem with the jack...

So I went to find my old cheap thin-band-over-the-head foam-covered style headphones that used to come with the first Walkmans. I tried them, and they worked. So good, it wasn't the jack. But bad, it was the brand new ear buds. :(

As if that's not bad enough, the cord on the cheap headphones was too short to reach from the keyboard to my head, so I couldn't practice with them.

And my semi-good foam-cup style headphones that actually sound the best and DO have a cord long enough are currently strapped to my telephone waiting to answer the next telemarketer. But besides that, the skin on the foam has been flaking off lately and it leaves these little black pieces of plastic all over.

So, a recap of the headphones situation...

Ear buds: right channel doesn't work
Old headphones: cord too short
New headphones: in use and foam is messy anyway

Maybe I'll just have to go out and buy some new ones. *sigh*

Do any audiophiles have any suggestions?

First of all....why don't you just stop bugging the F***ing Telemarketers and just stop answering the phone? Huh? Don't answer that... :-P

Second of all, anything KOSS kicks ass. You can get a good pair of KOSS headsets from anywhere from $5.99- $15.99 at Wal*Mart or K-Mart. Nothing fancy, but all models have a LIFE TIME WARRANTY!!! I've sent mine back about, 3 times(in the last 5 years) and gotten BRAND NEW head sets.

Cool. Yeah, Jeremy recommended those Koss ones at Radio Shack. I went to the store and looked for them, but there was nothing there with the Koss name on it. As with everything else, it's all Radio Shack's name or the one or two brands they own/endorse/whatever.

But I found ones that looked just like the Koss ones online and were the same price. I got one of the commissionees to let me try them out on one of their keyboards, and they sounded good, so I got them.

Oh, and while I was in the store, a monsoon passed through outside. The sky opened up and the air turned a hazy orange and the wind was blowing like crazy. People in the store decided to browse around a bit longer. :)

Every time I've been to Circuit City it has poured rain and/or T-Stormed.... always causing me to stay in the store longer... darn, darn, darn. :-D
