This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Yamaha. All opinions are 100% mine.
I imagine that my growing process in listening to portable music is much like your's. I started off in my young age by listening to a Walkman before moving on to my first portable CD player, commonly referred to as a disc man. Who knows, maybe most of you started off with a disc man.
Eventually I came to own an MP3 player. I was always kind of cheap so I actually went through two separate MP3 players before finally reaching the status of becoming an iPod user (I use the iPod Touch). But one thing has always run constant in my portable music listening experiences. Unless you invest in a decent set of headphones you are likely stuck with a pair of ear buds that have not advanced much in sound technology since the days of the old Game Boy headphones. Sometimes I still wish I had those old headphones.
But now I find myself listening to music and podcasts every day while I type up my latest posts. Usually I just open up iTunes and play music straight from that, but if only I had a set of portable speakers. If I had some speakers like the Yamaha PDX-60, I could set aside my iPod Touch and free up some usable memory on my computer.
There is no debate that listening to music on a pair of decent speakers is far superior to listening on standard speakers or headphones. As a fan of a wide range of music I highly recommend investing in a quality speaker system if you can. Portable speakers are best for most people so I would recommend checking out some reviews on some portable speakers and adding your favorite to your holiday wish list as soon as possible.
