I am so happy right now.

I'm not a fan of SONY, Sennheiser nor Beats (anymore)

my personal ranking of headphone brands:

1. BOSE <3
2. PHILIPS <3
3. JBL
4. SONY
5. DENON
6. Sennheiser
7. BEATS
8. Panasonic
9. Motorola
10. Monster
STAN for Bose! They are the best.

AirPods. You’ll never look back.
I know it probably won’t happen but I’ve always had an awful idea that somehow with wireless headphones, the headphones stop working and the music plays loud on the phone and everyone hears.

That's actually happened to me a few times. My bluetooth connection ended, due to the headphones' battery dying, and I didn't realise, so I just pressed play, and, boom, "Oops!...I Did It Again" is blasting in my cubicle at work. :oops:

I still love wireless headphones, though. They're a huge step-up from the wired ones I've been using most of my life.

I'm quite sure every phone has option if music stops or keeps playing once the connection is gone.

Not sure I understood him correctly, but I think Akini pressed play again after his headphones had disconnected and the music had stopped playing. I don‘t think the music on any phone would just keep playing when connection to the headphones was lost. It definitely doesn‘t happen with iPhones + AirPods.

This made me laugh so hard. I can't think of a more appropriate song to play in that instance :lol:

Why did “I Know What You Want” become such a bop over a decade later... It was not all that in 2003

It doesn't happen on Android either. If headphones are accidentally disconnected, the music stops.

There was a lot of similar songs out there back then. Some stood a test of time, some didn't.

Having your tonsils taken out in adulthood is pure agony. Wouldn’t wish this pain to anyone. My poor throat :cry: like swallowing glass shards every time I want to drink/eat.

i have the same pain only coming from the liver (Goldbladder actually)... it is like u ate glass shards when you have goldstones. I've already lost 30 pounds (15 kg) bc at one point you simply stop eating altogether.

I had to undergo an operation last week too... and another one in July. This whole saga was / is torture of the highest order. So, I see you, hear you and feel you.

Yeah, and the general anesthesia messes you up. Hope I never have to go through that again.

Reminds me of my iconic hospital topic: viewtopic.php?t=76266 :cry:

Agreed with you both about ops, the anaesthesia messed me up for at least 12 hours after my jaw operation. Glad you're well Carbon!

When a music forum closes for a long time they lose so many people there.

Arrested for ‘public drunkenness‘? :lol:
Does that mean you can only be drunk at home? Cause clubs, bars, restaurants and so on are all in public, right?
