Headphones weren’t always related to music. At the beginning of the 20th century they were used mostly for communication purposes, and played a huge role in the evolution of telegraphs and telephones. They became a staple for soldiers and their equipment in signal corps. Only in the middle of the 20th century people started using headphones for listening to music. Currently they’re still used and valued for their countless advantages, starting with things like being mobile and isolating the listener from the outside noise and the surroundings. Within the music industry they also play a key role in the studio, either for professional takes or simply for home recordings. They also serve as in-ear monitors for DJs.
Open-back and closed-back studio headphones
We offer a wide range of open-back and closed-back studio headphones from some of the most popular producers like AKG, Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Superlux, and many more. The closed-back headphones are great for musicians who need a proper in-ear monitor while in need of completely isolated conditions for recording, whereas the open-back headphones would give out more of the space and surroundings, what’s recommended as an important substitute while mastering the recordings. Studio headphones give you a very clear and untouched sound and therefore they’re good to spot any mishaps on the recording. Other kinds of headphones might add up to the sound or simply distort it, what is definitely not advisable for any kind of professional work.
In the DJ section we have headphones that are adjusted to the work of a modern DJ. Thanks to their perfectly closed construction those headphones isolate the DJ from the outside noise very well, and on top of that, have more bass to help with the work upon a beat. What’s more, a lot of those models are foldable. That allows the DJ to check on the sound coming from the speakers while having an in-ear monitor at the same time. In our offer we have products from the best brands like Numark, Pioneer, Reloop, Sennheiser and Shure. Due to their heavy bass DJ headphones don’t really bring you that pure and unchanged sound like studio headphones do, but for their role this is nothing else than an advantage, seeing as they should allow the DJ to focus on low frequencies to detect beats and work with already mastered tracks.
We have a wide range of Hi-Fi headphones from companies like AKG, Beyerdynamic, Koss and Sennheiser. Unlike studio and DJ headphones, those models serve solely to bring the most refined and final experiences to the user. It’s surely the best choice for you if you’re searching for good equipment to listen to music for pleasure. Hi-Fi headphones change the sound of music in a way, which is widely considered to be more pleasant for the listener.
The real phenomenon within the spectrum of headphones are headphone amps. A great example is Vox Amplug. Amps commonly perceived as heavy and with large speakers have finally turned into something else. They’re mobile and practical. With just a set of headphones and a very small amp we can enjoy playing guitar or bass nearly everywhere. There’s also a very interesting series of Vox amPhones products, which join headphones and amps into one single palm-sized piece of gear.
We also have headphones assigned for wireless sets, as well as all of the accessories you could need like cords, converters, sponges, etc. You’ll be able to find all the different kinds of headphones. A favorable situation for people who work with music is to have to sets of headphones – studio headphones for recording and monitoring things, and Hi-Fi headphones to use back at home. In the studio we can also find it beneficial to have both, open-back and closed-back headphones. For DJs though it is highly recommended to acquire some equipment, which is strictly meant for a DJ role, seeing as only then it’s going to meet all their expectations.
