Keeping It Quiet

I have no idea what other people’s requirements for headphones are but mine are usually:

  • Actual headphones so people know I’m wearing them and don’t disturb me.
  • Awesome bass
  • Looks good
  • Value for money because like heck if I get headphones that are cheaptastic but aren’t good? It’s not worth it then.

Such sexaaay looking headphones

These ones look super nice.

Anyway, sometimes don’t you wish that they come in super cheap so that you can buy a whole dozen of it and then pass it out in the trains/buses especially in the mornings? I MEAN COME ON. People, headphones are a thing. Heck, earphones too.

Use them!

Buy them if you can buy handphones or tablets or whatever. I don’t need to know or hear what you’re playing and it can get so loud when all I want to do is sleep in the bus/train if it’s super early.

Or just, please just keep it quiet. Sometimes I want to do a “BEHOLD, YOU WON THE PRIZE OF… HEADPHONES. Now, use them” if I was ever sponsored by some brand or something that would give it away.

A campaign like Silent Sally or something. We have Move in Martin and whoever else?

Turn your noise levels down if you’re playing a game or playing songs. No one wants to listen to your techno or whatever songs. If they did, you’d be a DJ on the radio already. Actually yeah, if you want to do that, go make your own channel online so people will choose to listen to it instead of not being able to stop it in public transport.

Would anyone actually do a campaign like that?

Why doesn’t anyone do a campaign like that anyway? Get to it brands, you can use this idea as some promo or something because everyone would love silence or at least unnecessary noise from gadgets when they could be quiet in the first place.


At least it’ll work on some. I don’t know how you would tell the elderly to stop doing it when they love playing their radios aloud in the bus…

But “youngins” should know to quit it anyway.

So yeah, do you guys who take public transport ever feel we should have some Silent Sally?
