On Saturday morning Flo and I took a stroll down 17 Ave to grab a coffee and run a couple of errands. We were passing BestBuy, and since BestBuy is to adult Jason what toys-r-us was to child Jason, we went in.

I’ve been curious for a while whether the expensive headphones you see everyone with these days are worth it. I tried a few pairs of the ubiquitous Beats and for me the answer is no. They were a little better than the $20 Sony pair that Flo and I both have, but really only a little. Certainly not enough to justify them being ten times the price.

Then I made the mistake of trying some Bose QuietComfort 3s. They. Blew. My. Mind.

I had no idea things could sound so good. I’m furious. Now I have to find $400 in headphone money.
