Trying out some noise cancelling headphones. They're amazing when they're working. Unfortunately my luck with bluetooth devices has been pretty spotty and these are no exception.
I hooked it up directly to my computer with an aux cable. This apparently means the mic won't work.
I've had trouble with the connections but the advertised features around active noise cancelling are actually pretty good. It nearly completely blocks out the sound I wanted it to. It also has a transparency mode which actually amplifies the sounds of the outside world so I can hear people talking to me better.
We come here in search of a place to express our thoughts outside of the direct control and surveillance of unaccountable, mega-corporations. There is no common theme that binds us other than these being the bonds we've chosen rather than those that have been chosen for us.
