Lis­ten­ing to Music

iPhone Life Magazine - - Life + Tech -

Music has magical and wide-rang­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. It can lull you into a tran­quil siesta or in­spire a dance party on the bal­cony un­der the stars. Thanks to David and our fea­ture web writer Con­ner, both of these things hap­pened in Mex­ico. The two of them made some awe­some playlists and saved them off­line us­ing Spo­tify (free). They also packed a cou­ple of Blue­tooth speak­ers for our trip, in­clud­ing the House of Mar­ley Chant Sport BT ($99.99) and the UE Boom 2 ($199.99), both of which were small enough to stow in a carry-on bag.

My only re­gret is that I didn't pack a pair of noise-can­cel­ing head­phones for the ride home. I found my­self wish­ing I had packed my Li­bra­tone QA­dapts ($249)on the re­turn flight when we were left wait­ing on the tar­mac for hours with scream­ing ba­bies while tech­ni­cians re­paired our plane. If I'd been able to tune out all the noise, per­haps I could have con­vinced my­self I was still at the beach, doz­ing on a re­clin­ing beach chair un­der a palm tree.
