The Perfect Headphones

Posted by on Jan 2, 2018 in Business |

Everybody enjoys music – it’s something that’s genuinely completely universal and transcends cultures, generations and regimes – even if the exact style of music might have varied throughout the years and countries. This in turn means that everyone can appreciate headphones, which plug into our portable devices and make listening on the go possible. At the same time headphones also mean that we can enjoy music without disturbing anyone else and that we can enjoy our left-field choice in music while someone else enjoys theirs – neither party harassing the other all the while. Of course some headphones perform these tasks better than others, and while you might not be doing a degree in sound engineering you’re still going to be able to hear the difference.

So what makes the perfect headphones? Well firstly the sound quality of course should be good – and in theory should be superior to listening to your CDs and MP3s through speakers. In theory the best headphones would take advantage of the fact that they are in your ears – in your actual head – and that they can achieve fantastic surround sound as a result. The sounds should be crisp and clear so that you notice things you didn’t notice about the song when it was out loud, and should also be able to reach ear-popping volumes. Like a good car with a huge engine you won’t use these higher settings (the equivalent of higher speeds), but just knowing they’re there will give you a great sense of satisfaction.Feel free to find more information at listen to music cheaply.

At the same time the very best headphones will also cancel out the noises around you which mean you can enjoy a far more immersive listening experience in any environment. This also gives them other uses for drowning out sounds you don’t want to hear and some even use technology that purposefully filters and blocks the sounds you don’t need. By the same token they should also sound quiet to those not using them so that too much sound is not projected outwards which not only wastes sound you could be hearing, but also creates noise pollution and disturbs those around you – by extension limiting the places you can listen to your headphones.

Finally the perfect headphones should have wires the right length so that you can feed them under your t-shirt, shirt or jumper while your MP3 player is safely in your pocket or backpack. This is a design flaw in several headphones and they can be as high tech as they like – but they’re no good if you have to be constantly stooping or holding your MP3 player to use them. The more length you get the better and this will also enable you to do other things with them like sharing a headphone with a friend on the train. Some headphone chords will even come with additional controls to let you skip tracks and control volume with ease.
