For those who know me well, it’s not a secret I love a good audiobook. I’m always listening to one. It’s become a joke with my family because I walk around the house wearing headphones. But, my favorite place to listen is the beach. Audible.com is my friend.
Laundry or cleaning up takes on a new life when you’re listening to an audio. It makes the mundane bearable. A long car ride or a brisk walk is one of my favorite times to enjoy audio.
It allows you to become immersed in the story and time flies. I feel lucky because I live near the beach, so popping down there after work or early mornings is a breeze. It allows me to enjoy the outdoors and to take in all the activity around me, yet it’s peaceful and relaxing. My headphones buffer any outside noise.
Sometimes it became uncomfortable having earbuds in my ears for an extended period. I was taking breaks from listening just to give my ears a rest.
I complained of this often, so for Christmas, I received new headphones as a gift from my daughter.
It has changed my listening experience! She gave me the Bose On-Ear Style, which I liked. But my younger daughter suggested I exchange them for the style that cups your ears instead. They are more comfortable and buffer outside sound better. I agree! The Bose Around-Ear Style headphones are fantastic.
No more taking breaks and the sound quality is excellent. They are amazing! The Bose headphones will make a huge difference in your audio listening experience.
I love Audible.com! I have their app on my phone, so I’m never without a book, and their selection is impressive. I can’t say enough about their customer service. They’re easy to contact and quick to respond. If you listen to a book and find you didn’t like it, you can return it, no questions asked.
One time I was going on a trip and needed a book, but didn’t have any credits left, so I decided to upgrade my subscription. I would have had to wait until the next billing cycle to get my book, so they gave me a free book to tide me over. If you’re interested in trying an audiobook, Audible.com has a free trial.
