Wired (actually wireless) For Sound . . .

Move over Cliff, you ain't the only one who likes tall speakers, small speakers etc, etc, etc. Just not that practical for running!

I, like lots of you, like a few tunes pumpin' away in the ol' ears when I'm doing my thing. But I have read several posts now where people seem to have the same problem as me - weird ears!

No, I'm not saying that they're like elephant ears or on the front of my face or anything. No, it's just normal ear pods just won't stay in!

So finally saw these KS ear thingies in Tesco (at a reasonable price). They're bluetooth, so unlike my first set of hook type earphones, where everytime I swung my arms, I kept catching the wire. With these, no such problem. Just charge 'em up and away you go. The charge lasts easily 3 sessions and yes they still come loose - the weird ears haven't changed, but at least they're still hanging around your ear and just pop 'em back in - SIMPLES :)

More than the headphones I can't believe you know the words to Wired for Sound! I was forced fed Cliff as a child on long car journeys to the caravan in Wales! I sadly know all the words to that one 😂😂😂 Wonder if it would make sallenson's playlist? 🤣 I bought a pair of headphones yesterday that hook all the way round the ears...you basically feed you ear lobes through a loop! Will let You know how they go 👂👂👂

I suspect Mr Richard would be unlikely to make any playlist of mine for multiple reasons. Tho I do remember "Summer Holiday" with a certain fondness.

My "behind the ears" earbuds still fall out btw. Less so than the old ones, but still. And the wireless ones fall out too.

Julian1970 and I are similarly afflicted with Odd Ear Syndrome. But I can wrap mine around my head in cold weather.

Thought that might be the case! My mum now wanta ne to book tickets for me and her to go see him 😱😱😱

I identify with odd ears...only my right one falls out 😂

I seems to be more common than I thought sallenson. I can feel a crowd funding plan coming on. Please, your donation could help vital research into OES - Odd Ear Syndrome, to help support the millions of poor individuals around the world who cannot wear ear-pods without them falling out every 2 seconds.

I'm sure that if I spent a bit of time playing with the gazillion of spare/variously sized rubber bits that always come with, I could work it out. But what works when I'm stationary in my study at home is not necessarily work when I'm sweaty and trying to "Meep meep"...

So turns out my new cheap Sony round the earphones work! Yay 👍

It is the only one I ever liked Saartjie. Not the best video though with Mr Richard on rollerskates - but hey, it was the 80's.

Lots of dodgy videos from the 80s!

And all that awful hair!! It's an endless surprise that we made it through with our sanity intact. Hmm. Having said that....

Yeah, remember that terrible 80's fashion, all those idiots running around in lycra and leg warmers . . . . hang on . . . . . NOOOOOOOOO!

We are some genetic throwback, re-enacting our past life. What an awful thought...

I have just bought some Bluetooth earphones they still come out of my ears but at least they're round my neck.
