Things we buy on Amazon - Part 3

Whew, it's been over half a year and I haven't updated this blog in awhile.  So guilty! :( 

The continuation of my Things we Buy on Amazon series is a good place to pick it back up as anywhere...so here it is! 

Headphone Earpads for MDR7506 MDRV6 MDR-7506 MDR-V6

 So cheap, so good

So cheap, so good

Why I ordered it:  

The expensive set of headphones that I had from when I was at Netflix (A Sony pro grade set) are a great set of headphones.  However, the ear foam pads start disintegrating after not using them for 5 years.  The thin plastic that covers the foam pads had started flaking off, sticking to my skin and making a mess of things.  I thought the headphones were done for, but then saw that I could just replace these. 

Do I like it? 

Yep!  They were cheap and were easily installed.

Do I use it? 

Daily!  I brought these to work after my cheapo headphones from groupon broke (which I also liked a lot, because I could switch to microphone mode on them easily and skip songs with a click of the integrated button), but these headphones block out a lot of noise and help me focus on getting work done during the day.  I admit that the pads sometimes get loose and I have to re-attach them, which is annoying.  I might spring for a more expensive replacement in the future but for now they work, so why replace things that work? 

 

Plush Rabbit Dog Toy

Ready for the dog sacrfice

Why I ordered it:  

Our rescue dog Miles loves ripping apart stuffed animals - I think the record time I saw him rip into one and pull out its' stuffed "innards" was about 5 seconds.  Now that he's the ripe age of almost 3 years old, he savors the destruction for a little longer and "toys" with his stuffed victims, so they usually last, on average, a few weeks per stuffed toy.  Amazon, by far, has the best deals on toys like these.  The prices they charge at pet stores is criminal. (Once saw a stuffed dinosaur dog toy for 55 dollars!)  

Do I like it? 

Our dog certainly did.  The ears were filled with a crinkly material, each leg had a squeaker in it, and if you squeezed the body it made a grunty noise.  So much happiness in one stuffed animal.  

Do I use it? 

The joy my dog took into ripping out each piece of this stuffed toy made it worth every penny.
