Toby Hatchett from Seacoastonline.com describes his frustration in trying to escape from noise:
I go outside. The helicopter is gone. The jack hammer is not. It is jack hammering away and away, deeper and deeper into the granite. I am guessing it must be granite. Isn’t this the granite state? Isn’t the reason I am losing my sanity? Oh, granite. Would if only you could be as gentle as a peony. See what is happening to my mind?
Mr. Hatchett also asks “Is there such a thing as ear plugs that will also allow for listening to books on tape?” Thankfully, the answer to that question is “yes” through the use of several brands of in-ear noise isolating headphones.
As I’ve mentioned on this blog before, I have a pair of the Etymotic ER-6 earphones and I love them.
