Silence is golden; screaming children are hell

April 27th, 2017 – Tech

Picked up a pair of noise cancelling headphones recently and life now contains significantly less of the mind-numbing drivel that I’m usually forced to put up with than it did before. Here’s some reasons why they’re a perfect fit for remote working & location independence.

I guess the location that I’m writing this post in is perhaps influencing the amount of vitriol it contains. I’m in Barcelona airport after a short flight from Lagos and I can’t remember getting off a flight as chilled out as I feel right now (admittedly I’m halfway through a beer so that might help).

The headphones in question are Bose’s QuietComfort 20’s:

First, the reasons that these headphones helped with my current state of chill (I think I’ll rate these with chill-factor from now on):

So, in summary, they are good headphones. I’d go as far as to say that they’re great headphones and, with built in microphone it makes the need for carrying a headset pretty redundant, meaning they’re ideal headphones for nomad-life. I use them daily for calls, travelling, coding and just about every moment of my life that I can in order to block out the monotony of others. Two thumbs up! 👍👍
