See, the problem I have with music is that there always seems to be a conflict between it and whatever other noises are happening at the time.
I go with some friends to the bar to have some drinks and chat and have a good time. The music is so damn loud that I generally can't understand people well enought to have a conversation. Other times, I'll go to a show where I intend to hear music. That goes pretty well until all the people around me keep talking and I have a difficult time hearing the music.
This kind of product seems perfect for me. This way I can listen to music without all the annoying people around. Or, should I prefer, I can listen to people without all the annoying music around.
