Yeah, I completely agree with you. I just couldn't control myself because I was so excited that I could listen to music and still listen to my surroundings. For years I didn't understand why it seemed that everyone only wanted isolation at all times, so finding good quality earbuds was like a life changing event. Anyway, I seem to have myself together now. I really do want to take some time with each one to actually appreciate them and get to know them. Edit: I just want to be clear that I still like isolation, but not all the time.
