Isolation has meant that we’ve had to keep ourselves busy within the confinement of our homes. In reality, there’s only so much we can do, so the top activities that we’ve resorted to are movies/TV shows, music, reading, and gaming. The least we can do is enhance our experiences of these activities to the max so that every second spent doing them is just as enjoyable as the next.
If you’re sinking into your music all day, you need a top-gun pair of headphones that’ll remove you from reality and place you in your own little bubble. If you’re gaming, you need to be so immersed in the action that you forget all your worries; so here are some tech products that’ll make home isolation that bit more bearable and get you through this difficult period.
Without sounding technical, Sony’s WH-1000XM3 is all about simplicity and the music. After all, that’s what headphones are for, right? Featuring DSEE HX and LDAC for the best-sounding audio, smart listening which automatically adjusts ambient sound to your activity, and HD noise-cancelling, these headphones will immerse you in your music for the whole day, where ever you are.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
If you’re a book worm like me and have finished all the books that you were reading before, you’ll be feeling a little desperate at this point…trust me you’re not the only one. Going out to buy your books in-store is temporarily not an option. So why not go digital with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, the e-reader home to thousands of books, magazines and with Kindle Unlimited access to a wide range of audiobooks. This will definitely make home isolation easier to endure through.
