Q: How do you shut things out?
Ans: I have a pair of SENNHEISER RS 175-headphones and the music studio at home is my place where i can get anything done. When I’m out and about i take my overpriced LIMITED ADDITION Beat studio3 headphones ,they have a block out feature ,so…when I’m in music mode…i talk to no-one until I’m done.
