Bit of a spending spree.

Things I Bought These Past Few Weeks And Why

Airpods Max

AirPods Max
AirPods Max combine high-fidelity audio with industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation, Adaptive EQ, Spatial Audio, and free engraving.

Why? Too much time with Airpods Pros in my ears was causing pain (I listen to music all day).

Worth it? So far, yes. I got green, and I like how they look. I wore them 5 hours in a row first day, no pain. The transparency mode is great. I had full conversations with headphones on, no hearing issues.

Why? I wanted to look at my phone less, and freeform write more.

Worth it? Unreal buy. I love this thing. It is basically the perfect Subway commute device. It's fun, small, allows you to write, think, and read. I reach for my phone much less.

SleepMe Chilipad Cube

Chilipad by Sleepme | Bed Cooling Systems & Cooling Mattress Topper
Shop award-winning Chilipad cooling mattress toppers and bed cooling systems. Free Shipping.

Why? I night sweat bad, and it's gross. It wakes me up, dehydrates me, makes life miserable.

Worth it? Only one night in, but I woke up DRY. THIS IS HUGE IF REPEATABLE. Will update in near future.

iPhone 15 Pro Max

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max
iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Titanium design. A17 Pro chip. 48MP Main camera. Record spatial video for Apple Vision Pro. Action button. USB-C.

Why? My phone (iPhone 13) was fine honestly. I did want one major QoL improvement: to be able to open my camera very fast. The action button does this well.

Worth it? I was able to get $320 trade in on my old phone, and I use my phone every day, and I need to upgrade eventually, so gonna go with yes.
