As some of you may know, I make electronic music on my computer, and I'm quite a music lover in general. Having music in my ears is absolutely critical to my well being. Given that said computer is a laptop with typical tinny laptop speakers, headphones are essential to both enjoying and creating music on it. Recently however, the headphone jack got screwed all to hell, making headphones completely useless. Still under warranty, I contacted the company to see if they could help me out, replace the motherboard or do whatever else they could do, but alas - they simply said my issue was NOT covered. So, balls. I then looked into external USB soundcards I could plug headphones into and still get good quality. After reading reviews on tons of them, I found the few brands I felt I should trust, and thus ventured out to see if I could find any of them in stores, so as to skirt around any inflation online and shipping prices. No luck though, they weren't in any of the stores I went to. The last stop though, Wal-Mart, carried USB headphones, 50 bucks. I decided, ok, whatever, let's try it, I'm desperate here. I grabbed some crappy food for dinner, and went to check out. Two employees were standing there, chatting away, completely not paying attention to anything. I was busy pulling my wallet out of pocket and shuffling through for my debit card. I, myself, barely paying attention like a good little consumer zombie, swiped, grabbed the bags, and headed out. Well, in the car, I finally decide to check out my receipt. The headphones weren't on there, as you can guess. The employee must have just grabbed it and bagged it, or perhaps it didn't scan? I know she wasn't looking at all, she was looking over her shoulder the whole time at her friend, and as I said, I was busy with my wallet. So, yeah, 50 dollar headphones.... free. Is it....bad that I'm thinking of keeping them? I'm a poor college kid here you know, can't afford to be a boyscout about it. What do you guys think though? I imagine such things have probably happened to some of you guys too, so let's hear it!
