I guess my birthday wish came true (sort of). I intially decided to wait on the darker DS Lite (ironic, no?) before I took the plunge into that world. Well, for purely aesthetic reasons, I’ve decided to forego waiting and purchase a white DS Lite.
A couple weeks ago, the earphones that came with my iPod Mini bit the dust. On the recommendation from a bunch of positive reviews, I went with the Sony Fontopia Headphones (MDR-EX71SL) and since it was for my iPod, I went with the white ones. Of course, I have a silver iPod Mini, but pay no mind to that fact. I went with the white for their ipodness.
Turns out, these are really fantastic earphones, not only with the iPod. I plugged them into my DS last night while I played some Super Mario and Metroid Fusion and it sounds great. Nay, superb. These white earphones will now be a permanent part of my DS setup. So why would I want a black DS with white earphones? Who would mix and match colors like that? I decided that a white DS Lite was in order.
I was unable to procure a DS in any local stores today (Target had them, but no free Brain Age) so I placed an order online and now anxiously await the arrival of my sexy handheld. All because of those sweet, white earphones.
(I can’t get over the delicious irony of this entire post. Mostly because it was a Sony product that has prompted me to purchase a Nintendo product that I already own an iteration of)
