They tick in my ear. Lalala.. music… feeling… I am elated. The world around me has stopped and all I am is this riff blowing through my eardrums. This is happiness. This is real. Screw everyone.

I don’t wear headphones as I enjoy being in the moment on my hikes and walks out and about this town. I feel like that is a part of the exercise, BEING outdoors. The birds, the wind, the other people. You stick a pair of headphones in and it’s like you take yourself out of the world.

They jangled around her neck, unused, but dearly loved. She wore them as most society women wear their pearls, with a type of practiced carelessness. I used to think that such things only existed in dreams, but there she was, an image I couldn’t erase: her long lands gripping the sides of the rail, her long hair tied back into a bun at the base of her neck. I could see the place where her shoulder met her neck. I couldn’t hear the music; I didn’t even know if she was playing any. All I knew was that at that moment, right there in the subway, waiting for the train to take me anywhere, the world had begun to fall away.

“He can’t hear you!” I turned to see him plugged in. He was so distant these days. Happy enough. Just distant. I tapped him on the shoulder. “Come out!” I shouted. He shrugged.

I love headphones. With it, I can turn off the noise of the world and replace it with a soundtrack. I often listen to music from movies, instrumentals, and anime theme songs – and very frequently, a simple drive down the road becomes an opening to an epic adventure. It might seem silly but very frequently, these little moments of pretending that I am in the opening / title sequence of an anime or a movie trailer lightens up an otherwise dull, dreary or outright stressful day for me.
Let’s not even get into what I do when I hear a good dance/walking track! My step becomes lighter, I will skip, and dance along. Sure, people will look at me strangely, but I have a smile on my face and a massive set of cans on my head.
And other times, I wonder what stories other people are living, as I listen to the soundtrack in my life.

headphones are great , when I put them on , and turn the music up I can forget about the whole world and live in my own little universe.They Take me to colorful places where I can be who I want to be and no one there to judge me or correct me, It’s my own little crazy world.

I pulled them out of my pocket and immediately began to tug fiercely at them. Why the fuck do I even bother to wrap them tidily.

Head phones are the means to privacy, it doesnt matter if you are alone, with you family, Work or even a stadium the headphones is your quickest way to solitude. Headphones can also be a charm that tells something about you, depending on its color, size and manifacturer it going to tell the people a little bit about you

well what can I say those small earrings are better than jewelry, better than gold or any priceless piece of stone you can hang on your ear.. they’re a link between you and a whole other place, one with new colors and new tastes. A place were you could get lost in the moment, where every word of a lyrics counts, and where every beat compliments the beats of your heart. The music you hear through headphones is just different, it feels better and triggers unfamiliar feelings in you .. You see a girl with music in her ears but no, what I go through with earphones on is far deeper than what anyone could imagine.
headphones are the key and street to music. they conduct you to places you would never think of through music. don’t think, just listen to the beat. your world will suddenly change around you leaving out all bad in the world. it will be just you. why worry so much? Take a step back in reality, take off the gravity and go into the never ending research of happiness.

Headphones are one of the most lovely inventions ever. It can be used for drowning out people talking endlessly, drowning out teachers, listen to you favorite music in the car while still have the rest of the family listen to other songs….Headphones are wonderful…I should get a pair.

Headphones. What a wonderful thing they are. I’m listening to them right now, and they bring with them the gift of music. Audiomachine, Two Step from Hell. Artists that make music that move your very soul. Pride, joy, happiness, hate, passion. All this and more captured in their songs. What a rare and beautiful thing to hear sounds that can make your day come to life, and set your very soul on fire. I use music really. It’s a source of strength, of meaning, of purpose and re-purpose. And sometimes that worries me. I worry that I shouldn’t need to lend strength from songs, I worry that I should be able to do it all alone. But really, no one can do everything alone now can they? What a sad sad thing that would be. To sit, alone in the dark, troubles and problems raining down on you, with no one you can call and nowhere you can turn. But at least, even in these times in the middle of the night, we can see the music that sets the spark of hope alight inside of us, makes us believe we can pull through if we just push a little harder, and walk a little further. Left foot, right foot. That’ll take you anywhere. And music will make the beat so much sweeter.

Bring the headphones in
the music is playing
it’s a thrill to be hearing clear
Bring the headphones in.

I slip the heavy black headphones over my head and plug them into my iPod, leaning back in my chair as the music washes over me. I love the way these enhance the quality of the music, but that’s not why I wear them. Headphones say, “Don’t talk to me.” Headphones cut me off from the world. Wearing these, I can’t hear anyone. I’m alone in a crowd. Alone, but not lonely. At least, that’s what I told myself.

Block out the world. Stop the intense messages of helplessness and consumerism. Just breathe and listen for five, ten, twenty minutes. This is bliss.
By Laura on 09.09.2012
Headphones are what you wear so that the people with their annoying handouts on campus dont bother you. If you wear them for too long though your ears will hurt. Also headphones are too easily broken.
By Ryan on 09.09.2012
I wear my headphones and am zapped into a different world: vibrant and charming, a plethora of senses that go beyond sound are touched. This is my trip, this is my ticket to a world of color, a world unravelled
By johnnyflashbang on 09.09.2012
Music. Is it simply to listen to, or to shut folk out. We don’t want to acknowledge our own, awful lives, and so we listen to this glorified shit, and not to each other.
By Ben on 09.09.2012
You could hear music blasting through her headphones, as if she didn´t care about what was happening in the world outside her head. That´s exactly what I liked about her the first time she caught my eye.
By Gonzalo URL on 09.09.2012
I took out my headphones and forgot about the world. I indulged in my choice of music and the meaning given by the lyrics. I wasn’t paying attention to what was happening that there was an incoming car and all went black.

“I’m not taking them off again…” The annoyance in her voice getting more and more evident.
“But Sarah… I don’t get it.”
“Don’t get what?” She ripped the headphones off and snapped at her sister.
“I… I just don’t get this…” She thrust out the letter from their mother, “Why doesn’t she say she loves us?”
“I’m sorry sweetheart, she’s not in a good place at the moment, go to sleep darling.”

I use headphones when I want to concentrate about something which I listen to
I usually use them at home
I use handfree outside home instead of them
By Eng Ghada on 09.09.2012

She scooted to the seat closest to the window and tossed her bag into the seat next to her. After jamming her headphones into her ears she looked around the bus through half closed eyes. “Oh no. Here he comes,” she thought. She leaned her head against the window and pretended to sleep.

i love to have headphones with me all the time. music is my life. it saves me. i don’t know what i would do if i didn’t have headphones to let me just get out of my head and just be myself.
By Carly on 09.09.2012
The music enters my ears like a tidal wave, ridding myself of feelings that are my own. The voices on the other side beckon me to understand what they’re getting out there. They want me to know their secrets, their feelings, the story of their lives. And I want to know it, too. I want to know it all. So I wait with a keen ear, wanting to hear what will come out next. Patiently, I listen.

I used to be fascinated by headphones. The brands, the styles, the tones…etc; it just intrigued me. It feels pro when I am wearing a professional headphone to listen music, not to mention its god-like quality. But, well, it cost too much and I couldn’t afford it, so I just turned to buy a earphone. A nice one though.
By ifyouknowwhatimean on 09.09.2012
I ride the bus, I value the interactions and conversations among the passengers, but I choose not to engage in any conversation. Thus, I shut myself off by turning on my music and letting the beat pour out from my headphones.

If there was one thing that could calm him down, it was his music.
He’d plug in the headphones and grab his sticks, and play along with the music. The pent up emotions were released, and an odd sense of calm washed over him. All his fears, memories, emotions went away.
It was just him, his headphones, and the music.

I walk around campus, and everyone is plugged in. Tuned in to their own plane going about their own business, unaware of anything around them. Makes it kind of hard to make friends when you’re encased in a bubble.
By StatiKink URL on 09.09.2012
tables chairs, must be something in common right? Got to fill them with the right stuff otherwise why wear them? And if we never find out, what’s the worth in carrying such a weight around the head all that time?
By Pete on 09.09.2012
Headphones help you hear. But headphones can also block external noises too.
Isn’t that funny? That something designed to make you feel one way can have a completely different, alternative effect too. What about love.

she sits and they hug her ears like the time he crept up behind her and tenderly cupped her head, teasing her by asking who could it be.

headphones are used for listening music, they are small and they can fit your ear perfectly. they can isolate you from the outer world so you can enjoy the music. i have purple headphones,I mean I used to. my mom is against headphones, but i still use them, especially when I’m going somewhere alone.
By Sara on 09.09.2012
They are the key to your own world. you put your headphones in and the music on the other end fills your head. the world comes second to listening to music. nothing else matters as long as you have them lyrics floating around your head.
