Stogie Tips: Listening In and Lighting Up

21 May 2008

I’m not big on fancy cigar smoking accoutrements. Remember, I’m the guy who extols the virtues of the sub-$4 Ronson torch lighter filled with cheap Ronson butane.

But a few months ago I bought myself what I thought had the potential to be a great addition. I picked up a set of Sennheiser wireless headphones. I got the package for about $60 on sale at the same electronics store where I had earlier purchased my TV and sound system. These aren’t the top of the line model; they don’t reproduce surround sound. But they do provide clear, clean sound for at least 50-75 feet or so.

And that is what makes them a cigar accessory. For I now can sit on my little deck, watch the living room television through the glass sliders, and listen and smoke a cigar all the while. Since I have my computer connected to the system I can also use it to listen to Podcasts and music.

So far, I’ve enjoyed the headphones tremendously, using them primarily for watching sports. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been blessed down here with some spectacular weather that has made it ideal to sit outside and smoke during an evening baseball game. Unfortunately, I’ll probably have to let the headphones rest soon. Temperatures will be too high for outdoor smoking, and I’ll be visiting local shops much more often.

Until then, though, you’ll probably find me out back with the TV on inside.

    Thanks for the post George. Currently I just crack the door and blast the volume.

    Wireless headphones as a cigar gadget… who would have thought?

    I do exactly the same… but I also like a bit of online poker as well when smoking.

    If you're a baseball fan (I bleed Cubbie blue), MLBTV is indispensable. I'm on my patio watching the game on my laptop and smoking as we speak.
