Headphones*: Sennheiser at John Lewis
As a self-confessed tech-geek, it’s not surprising that I don’t have many gadgets. My phone, laptop and camera are the only devices I can confidently navigate and in that order, are the instruments I need to be able to do my job. Anything else and I’ll need a coffee and an hour-long tutorial. But what about when I’m not working?
This summer, I partnered up with John Lewis as part of their #FindYourSummer campaign, intent on helping you to discover your summer moment; whether that’s snapping a family photo on one of the hundreds of cameras they have to offer (compact, polaroid, SLR – you name it, they’ve got it) or pumping party music at a BBQ through one of their Bluetooth wireless speakers. With an extensive range of tech-toys on offer, there’s something for everyone.
For me, it’s these headphones. Somewhere, a bundle of tangled ear plugs (of which at least 2 sets isn’t working) has been stuffed carelessly in an overcrowded drawer. I’ve always thought it was a curse, the right ear plug always breaks and so having spent more money than I’d like to admit on replacing them time and time again, I just kind of ‘gave up’. I stopped listening to music at the gym a few months ago and occupied myself with magazines on long journeys. I could only open Spotify when I knew I wouldn’t be disturbing anyone around me (read: singing in the shower home alone – shh) and I missed music.
So when these gorgeous Sennheiser headphones arrived on my doorstep, I was just a tad excited. Folded up neatly inside a sleek protective carrier for easy portability and with large memory foam ear cushions for maximum comfort, I knew they would change my listening experiences forever. The closed-back earcups allow for optimum noise isolation and the 3-button remote allows for easy control of incoming phone calls, volume and playback – perfect for when you’re lying on a sun lounger and want to change the track with the touch of a button.
And, they’re pretty lovely to look at too (see here). They’re not chunky or heavy, just sleek and stylish. The perfect accessory for those long plane journeys. They came with me to Dubrovnik and I have yet to make a commute without them.
A huge thank you to John Lewis for helping me find my summer moment, for allowing me to zone out and enjoy blissfully uninterrupted ‘me time’. It’s priceless.
Love, Beth xo.
