The topic I chose to write about do paper two was how the use of headphone change our experiences with public space. Many people have become so accustomed to wearing headphones that it is nearly second nature for them to do so. These people not only wear headphones all of the time, but they also wear them almost everywhere, including in public places. People construct their own “private soundscapes” in public spaces by wearing headphones (Aletta et al., 2016). Researchers should pay attention to this issue since the establishment of private acoustic environments can change people’s perceptions of public space. This study addresses five research questions about using headphones in parks and on public transportation: why people use them, when they first start using them and when they stop, what activities they do while wearing headphones, what they listen to, as well as how wearing headphones impacts their experience.

    Tyrema, this seems like a good topic, but i’m not sure what your thesis will be. What do you want to say about this situation? Also, it looks like you cut and pasted the abstract of an article in the second half of your post. Don’t do that.
