Dirk W. Boogies Down in the Park with his Privates

1) Name?
Hey, what’s up, I’m Dirk W.

2) Hometown?

Originally? Texas. But now I live in California. I needed to be closer to the ocean!

3) Totally. So, what were you looking to pick up?

I needed some over-the-ear, wireless headphones. I’m not a big fan of earbuds (they hurt my ears!) and I hate cords. Hate ‘em with a passion.

4) What’s your favorite thing about Outdoor Tech’s Privates Wireless Headphones?

Well, they’re lightweight, which is great. Oh, and they’re rugged too (I’m an active guy, so these things have to take a beating sometimes). But the biggest thing is that they’re wireless. I don’t have to worry about them when I’m using them outdoors—no annoying cords or anything. When I’m hiking, I don’t want anything slowing me down at all.

5) Is there anything else you like about the headphones?

You’d think that with headphones that are “durable” that they’d be bulky and pretty heavy. Or at least that’s what I kind of expected. But these Privates are surprisingly light and compact. And, man, are they tough! Oh, and did I mention that I hate earbuds? They bug me so much. So yeah, an over-the-ear option is big for me, and these wireless headphones are a great choice. The battery life is really solid, which helps out a lot when I ride the bus.

6) What do you like to listen to?

I love all kinds of music, but I especially love to listen to audiobooks. I ride the bus to and from work, and I like to listen to mostly audiobooks and they all sound really good. And, while I’m sure some audiophiles might use these headphones for some hardcore music, I thought the Privates worked great with some soft, casual tunes as well. I like to keep things mellow before and after work, you know?
