Putting Your Music on Our Headphones

Are you think of putting your music on our headphones?  This afternoon I received an email from a lady who is having both knees replaced and wanted to use some music that she used 22 years ago for a heart procedure.  The problem is that the music, at that time, was on cassette tapes.  Can it be done?  Of course, but cassette tapes are in an analog format, so the music must be digitized.  It could be transformed into an MP3 file, or even a CD, which could be popped into a laptop and uploaded.

Will this lady be able to do that in time for her surgery?  We shall see.  She says she has some “young people” who can help and they are to call me tomorrow.  I certainly hope we can make it  happen for her, but this brings us to one of the main reasons I created these pre-programmed and programmable headphones in the first place.  When a patient finds out that they need surgery, or they decide that are going to have a procedure they’ve been putting off, creating their own music on headphones is not easy.  That’s why I’ve done it for you!  The classical piano music I’ve chosen is not familiar to most people and so there are no particular associations with it.

If you want to put your music on our headphones, you can certainly do it.  But you’ll need some basic skills with a USB cable and digital files.  If I can help or answer questions for you, don’t hesitate to email me here!!  Be healthy!
