Well, this is pretty cool.
for the computer.
I havent got along very well with previous sets of headphones.
I'm always breaking or ripping the cords on them.
A set of headphones for me is lucky to last a year without me fouling
them up somehow. I liked the last pair of headphones that I had for my
computer, because they had an in line stereo / mono switch.
Being totally deaf in one ear, mono is the only option for me
when listening to music through headphones if I want to hear both channels.
But I broke that pair the way I break them all, by accidently ripping the
cord out of the jack when preoccupied with other activities.
So, I decided to go wireless. And I got a special adapter for
the transmitter that plugs into the computer, so that it changes the
signal from stereo to mono. No more cords to accidently destroy. I can
pick up the music from up to 150 feet away from the transmitter now,
which covers the whole house and all around the outside of the house too.
Now I can listen to the mp3s on my puter while I mow the lawn! I can listen
to hillbilly banjo music streaming through the internet from Tennessee while
I sit on the front porch, or listen to any worldwide internet streams
anywhere outside in the yard. Sweet. Hope I don't find some way to break it
too soon. Hmm. Now I need a wireless microphone. and a wireless keyboard,
and mouse...and monitor.
This looks pretty sweet too.
