Music, Music Everywhere
“It don’t matter if you’re black or white,” Michael Jackson sings spreading his arms out. The one man made thing in the world that does not discriminate is music. It brings together people of different ages, cultures, nationality, skin color, social status and gender. Music is a language that all understand. In fact, while reading and writing can be traced back to 3,500 years, the first musical instruments trace back to more than 37,000 years! Yes, wind instruments are among the oldest man made objects discovered.
Did you know that more people actively choose to listen to music than those who actively choose to watch television? This data was made available by global information and measurement company Nielsen in a 2014 report, which also highlighted that the way people listen to music is changing. In fact, when online shopping for mobile accessories, many people look for items to aid their music listening experience.
How We Listen to Music Has Evolved
In the 20th century, people would consciously allocate time to listening to music. The players were cumbersome and the storage devices could hardly stock 20 songs.
Then Steve Jobs came along. Although there were portable music players already in the market, storage was always the issue. That was until Apple launched the iPod in 2001. One could now carry millions of songs in their pockets. Huge libraries of songs became portable and the ability to skip songs in seconds, shuffle and create custom playlists became possible.
From here, music came to be stored on smartphones. While iTunes did start the trend, the emergence of Android made it economical to download and store music on cellphones.
Music Becomes Omnipresent
Today, people want music everywhere. Whether they are driving to work, working out in a gym, lazing at home, eating at a restaurant or walking in the park, music is the constant companion. Now that all our music is stored on our mobile phones, we can download the kind of music we prefer and create playlists for different moods and occasions. But what about delivery? Here are some ideas for mobile accessories online that can help you listen to music everywhere.
Earphones or in-ear phones are perfect if you wish to listen to music while on the go. You can have them on during your morning jog or when walking to the supermarket to pick up some household stuff. You could try larger headphones if you are going to be more-or-less stationary, like when traveling by train or sitting at home. Although headphones are bulkier and a little more expensive than earphone or earplugs, the sound quality is much superior. So, if you are a music enthusiast, you can look for these while you buy mobile accessories online. The most popular brands are Skullcanday, Sony and Philips, although there are many cheaper options available.
If you’re alone at home or you’re having a party, you may wish to enjoy music on your phone louder. Here’s where a Bluetooth speaker comes in handy. You can walk around the house freely while listening to music. You can choose one that has a range of 10 meters or more, so that you can place your cell phone safely in a corner and the speaker closer to your guests. When looking for mobile accessories online, you can search for a speaker with a mic, which would allow you to take calls. This is a great idea if you wish to have conference calls with family or friends.
Guess what, now you can have a wireless waterproof speaker in your bathroom, so that you can listen to your favorite songs while you’re in the shower. You could get a hands-free Bluetooth kit for your car.
