Sometimes, only sometimes I still miss my iPod for listening to music on the go.

The reason for this is I loved the buttons that you could simply press to skip tracks without even having to take the device from your pocket.

Nowadays I use my iPhone for listening to music away from home. Which is great but does involve always having to have it in my hand and visible as I tend to skip tracks a lot – some might say too often but that’s a story for another time.

I still use my trusted Bang and Olufsen A8 earphones even although I have the BeoPlay H8s which do allow me to skip the tracks by flicking the headset but I LOVE my A8s.

I’ve also only recently upgraded to an iPhone X and although I’m still unsure whether I prefer it to my iPhone 8 Plus I am persevering with it. One thing I’ve noticed about it is that it’s so damn hard to keep a hold of. I can’t tell you the amount of times that I’ve dropped it or nearly dropped it! I’m so glad that before I started using it I made sure it was all kitted out with a screen protector and a fancy case!

So, this leads me to the my main point here. Once you have your mobile music device of choice it’s always a good idea to customise it both for safety and to make it that little bit special and unique.

Recently I’ve become a huge fan of “iDeal Of Sweden”. Here’s what I say about them…

They are Swedish – awesome enough in itself, right?

They have very cool products – always a good thing in my book!

They aren’t as expensive as you’d think – definitely a winner with me every time!
