Long story short, the sweet embrace of nostalgia was clearly lacking. Once I was perfectly happy to use just any earphones you could throw at me, but experiencing these old-school accessories as a person that’s gotten used to wireless earbuds made a few things rather clear.
First up, the wires. Always dangling around, always prone to getting tangled up like a bowl of fresh pasta, always getting in the way. There’s no winning this battle, and I conceded a long time ago. Surely, you don’t need to charge those, but it’s quite inconvenient.
The transition from wired to wireless was clearly worth it. Good riddance, wires.
