Headphones

  • If you like going for a walk with your headphones on, the first thing that you probably do every time you step out of the door is turn the volume up to drown out the sound of traffic. But if you’re doing this regularly, you actually run the risk of causing hearing loss or worse. Thankfully, technology has paved the way for noise-cancelling headphones and noise-cancelling in-ears, which actually eliminate the need to turn the volume up to max. Time for a closer look.

  • You can definitely plug a set of headphones into your electric guitar or bass, but not much will happen. Luckily, there are plenty of other compact and less-compact solutions if you want to hone your playing technique while wrapped in the privacy of a set of headphones. Read on to find out how it’s done!

  • Headphones are the ideal mixing tool. Any noisy neighbours are silenced, the acoustics of your studio space no longer matter, and you can hear all those little hidden details of the audio. So, if headphones are so great, why do professional studios still use monitor speakers? Is there something wrong with mixing using headphones? In this blog, we explain it all!

  • We wouldn’t be surprised if it’s one of the most frequently googled questions: “What are the differences between the various Sennheiser HD 25 headphones?” Sennheiser cleaned up the series a while ago, so it’s about time we put together a clear overview of the differences and similarities between the older and newer versions of this iconic range of headphones.

  • Everyone does it: get on the train and hole up with a good pair of headphones or ear-buds; soundtrack their walk to work with some happy-music, or go for a jog while jacked into some solid motivational smash hits. In most of these everyday sitches, you’re likely to push the volume up to compete with the traffic, the other commuters on the bus, or the heavy breathing of your fellow joggers. Fair enough. But what most people don’t realise is that this can unfortunately cause your delicate ears some serious damage. In this blog, we seek to answer the most essential questions regarding the hearing damage caused by using a humble set of headphones or ear-buds.

  • If you’re in the market for a new set of headphones, then you’ll quickly discover the selection is enormous. Which set you choose is ultimately down to your own personal preference, but what’s the best way to make an informed decision? As well as all your personal preferences, there is another factor to take into consideration: headphone impedance! What is it, and what’s the right amount for your needs? In this blog post, we’ll be going into depth about headphone impedance so you can make the right choice.
