A love of music has always been at the heart and soul of Home Media, with many of our customers reaping the benefits of this passion over the years. We know first-hand just how relaxing and beneficial listening to music can be and are always singing its praises to anyone within earshot!
That’s why we built the largest headphone demo zone in Kent, so you can test out the perfect gear to take your music with you.
Luckily the science backs us up, with the most exciting findings surrounding the increased health and happiness listening to music can provide. A lot of research has been carried out to provide statistically significant results to highlight the positive impact that listening music can have on the health and well-being of individuals.
Sounds simple? It really is. Dopamine, the ‘feel-good’ hormone, is found in increased levels in the brain whilst individuals are listening to something that they enjoy. Musical genres such as classical or jazz in particular also help decrease the level of the ‘stress’ hormone, cortisol, in your brain, thus making you feel calmer and able to respond in a more rational way.
With stress being so prevalent in our busy day-to-day lives and being the cause of an astonishing 60% of all human illness and disease including heart attack and stroke, listening to music is a low-risk, low-cost remedy to decrease the brain’s negative response to a stressor. Just fifteen minutes of enjoying your favourite tunes can provide you with a boosted mood and a more positive outlook!
So come by the Home Media showroom… not only can we help you discover the best kit available to suit your needs – but you can also pop on a pair of headphones from our extensive selection of in-ear and over-ear sets and kick back with some calming music. We’ll help you to feel the relaxing results for yourself.
