I'm Listening to Music Now

| Comments

Some months ago I had the opportunity to borrow a Pono Player and a pair of Bowers and Wilkins P5 v2 from a friend and colleague of mine. That evening I listened to music. Something that I thought I had done before but I actually hadn’t.

Earlier that day, over lunch, I had listened to couple of songs with that equipment. I started laughing when listening to Queen - We Will Rock You. Not that that song was funny but the base went just through me and it was tingling inside. I can’t remember being so surprised for some time.

Next I listened to Béla Fleck & The Flecktones - Blu Pop. The richness of the sound was overwhelming. This is when I asked to borrow the set for that evening. That evening I spent 3 hours in my hotel room just listening to music. I listened so much that I was tired afterwards.

Now couple of months later I received my pair of P5s. I’m rediscovering the music I have and I’m hungry for higher quality of sound. I’m listening to music now!
