Hormonal teens vs. the rest of us: we might know more, but they feel more. And you can too, with a Sonos music system ;).
When I think of music I listened to as an early teen (Nsync, 5ive, Backstreet Boys – yes, I’m a 90s kid), I’m transported back to a time when music felt visceral.
It’s a feeling you only naturally get as a hormonal teen. Feeling like every emotion is either a firework or the end of the world.
The older I get, the less I feel that intensity.
Do you remember the time?!?
Door firmly closed. Slide on the headphones. On goes the Sony Walkman.
“It’s tearin’ up my heart, when I’m with you…”.
A greasy pubescent Justin Timberlake is singing to me…yes, ME.
“But when we are apart, I fee it too…”
The world stops, and I’m transported into a music video. It’s real. I can feel it’s real. And Justin is tortured by his love for me.
End of fan-fiction.
As a teen, everything feels like this.
I like getting older. The wisdom and self-assurance is unbeatable. But the depth with which a teen feels is the elixir of youth. The music unlocks a door to an immersive world that eats you up.
Today, I get that from my two Sonos speakers – I can feel the music in my bones.
I feel like a part of my youth has been regenerated.
How Sonos works?
- It’s coming from inside the house (again, I’m a 90s kid, excuse me). I’ve setup two speaks across my open plan living room, study, kitchen. So no matter what I’m doing in this area, I feel the music all around me.
- Quality sound. Before I got Sonos, I relied on my laptop as my music player. So in comparison most things would have sounded better. But people I know who are more knowledgable on this stuff, tell me it’s good.
- Control. A great benefit of being an adult is that I have control over my life and actions. I’m the boss. Having a Sonos controller that I can use from any electronic device to control every aspect of my music listening, serves my Gen Y ‘I want things when I want it, how I want it’ needs. The app itself isn’t that pretty and feels a little like a PC-structure with an Apple-style skin. But, no matter.
Find your ‘Sonos’ and turn back time.
Now, time for me to cook dinner and travel back to 1940s New Orleans, courtesy of Louis Armstrong.
