Am not psyched today majorly coz my headphones aren’t working. Its like an addiction and every dancer can attest that among the ‘DON’T TOUCH’ catalogue of possessions, headphones top the log. Well I may be fuzzy on this but according to Wikipedia Headphones are a pair of small loudspeakers which are designed to be held in place close to a user’s ears. The in-ear version is also known as Earphones. Now headset: a combination of headphone and microphone….aaaah okay!
Headphones originated from earpiece and were the only way to listen to electrical audio signals before amplifiers were developed. The first truly successful set was developed by Nathaniel Baldwin, who made them by hand in his kitchen and sold them to United States Navy……totally cool.
Over the years there has been a strong development of headphones and in ear buds.There is a development of headsets which are a combination of headphone/earphone and a microphone. They usually used for voice chats and have become a common accessories for mobile phones. 

The headphones are a must have accessory for a dancer, and purely  because they allow the freedom of choice of the playlist, also they allow for a dancer to ignore the rest of the environment to concentrate. The music is closer and feels tangible. This feature of noise cancellation also comes with its down side. There is risk of cancellation of important noises such as car horns, in a factory warning alarms and in most countries the use of headphones while driving is illegal. Some have restricted to using a maximum of one in ear bud while driving.Either way excessive use of an excess of 80db in extended listening can cause partial or complete deafness. Consider this “too much of anything is poisonous”

WHAT IS DB: Decibel is A logarithmic Unit of measurement in acoustics and electronic….Wikipedia baibey. we need an expert on this and who to call…mmmh aaaah got it
In the forth coming series I have found it important to feature  brands like Soul by Ludacris, Sony, Beats by dre and the like as international brands and am looking to talk to a local seller on the brands we have available. Keep it going and as far as it goes remember if you come to my world my Earphones are a don’t touch. They are my companion and my identity. BOOM BOOM CHA.
