Why Good Head­phones Are Im­por­tant

HWM (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

As cliché as it may sound, mu­sic some­times truly soothe the soul. For this rea­son, many are will­ing to spend hun­dreds or even thou­sands on au­dio­phile-level equip­ment. Nat­u­rally, you get what you pay for.

More of­ten than not, head­phones are the equip­ment of choice when it comes to lis­ten­ing to mu­sic. The rea­son be­hind this is sim­ple – ac­cu­racy. Be it in-ear or full­sized head­phones, the au­dio driv­ers are po­si­tioned very close to our eardrums. This al­lows us to hear ev­ery bit of sound bet­ter.

When you get your hands on a good pair of head­phones, rest as­sured that you’ll be able to hear mu­sic the way the artist in­tended it to be heard. Head­phones like the Fi­nal Au­dio Pi­ano Forte IX were metic­u­lously de­vel­oped to en­sure that ev­ery in­stru­ment and ev­ery note in a song can be heard. Many fac­tors help to achieve this, such as the ma­te­rial of the head­phones, its size, the ma­te­rial of the ca­ble, even the di­rec­tion the driv­ers are fac­ing will in­flu­ence the char­ac­ter­is­tics of a pair of head­phones.

Apart from be­ing able to hear great­sound­ing au­dio, many high-end head­phones come with a fea­ture that helps to im­prove the lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. This par­tic­u­lar fea­ture is called Ac­tive Noise Can­cel­la­tion (ANC), where the head­phones ac­tively scans for am­bi­ent noise and min­i­mizes th­ese sound so that all you hear is the mu­sic. This, com­bined with the fact that the mu­sic play­ing on a pair of head­phones can only be heard by you, makes head­phones a re­ally wor­thy in­vest­ment.

In short, you shouldn’t set­tle for any pair of head­phones you find on the shelf. Take some time to find a good pair of head­phones and you’ll be in for a whole new au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence.
