The Sound of Silence

The next door neighbour recently has a baby. Being a new born, it cries a far amount day and night so we noticed its arrival a few weeks back. Last week, the husband finally came over and knocked on our door and told us about their baby. (Duh! As if we can’t hear its crying through the wall and corridor)

Anyway, apparently our prime time TV viewing with the sound system on is disturbing the baby’s sleep which is fair enough. Also my late night Halo 2 session chatters also permeate through the wall into their bedroom, which is adjacent to our living room. Fortunately I was still at work when he came over so I didn’t have to deal with the awkward situation/conversation.

So to solve the first problem Leah and I decided (via SMS) that we should purchase another set of the awesome Sony wireless surround sound headphones so we can watch TV in silence. The only downside is the even after being on sale for over 6 months Sony still hasn’t release a spare headphones for the same model. This forces us to buy an extra complete set in order to have an additional headphones!

Even though these headphones do not use the Dolby Headphone technology (they use Sony’s own proprietary technology, go figure) they still produce very impressive surround sound. So much so that Leah thinks it is the best thing since slice bread. (Ok, may be I was exaggerating a bit here)

As for the Halo 2 session, not much I can do about it apart from playing less during the night and being quieter.
