A list of top headphones for music buffs
Good music needs good speakers. If you’ve dug up your old CD of the Stairway to Heaven just to listen to the greatest guitar solo there is, and then plugged it onto your really old headphone set, you’d no doubt be disappointed. Every music buff knows that the better half of listening to great music is what you hear it on. This is why we’ve compiled a short list of 3 top companies and headphones for music buffs. Take a look.
- Bose: What are the chances we would even talk about headphones without Bose topping the list? There are several headphones from this great company to choose from. There’s the Bose Quiet Comfort 3 which lives up to its name. It is as comfortable as a pair of cushions around your ears, and the sound will not disturb those around you. Great for travel, when you need to be mindful of your co passengers. There’s also Bose Triport, which are incredibly light. These are headphones that wrap around your ear, not earplugs, something that Bose truly specializes in. You can swivel and adjust the movements of the ear cushions, and it of course comes in adjustable sizes which do not affect comfort, weight or audio quality at all.
- Sennheiser: They did it with cars. They did it with their roads. They did it with all things efficient and forward. And the Germans have done it with sound system too. Sennheiser has some of the greatest headphones that you could want. With the acoustics so good, you can actually distinguish between various instruments of the orchestra, or the tunes of guitars as you listen to your favorite Jimmy Paige, you should check out the Sennheiser MX 55 Ergonomic Twist to Fit Earbuds. They fit comfortably into your ears without creating any pain, and because they are twist-to-fit, they maintain their position throughout your musical experience thus not interrupting the flow. Also worth a check is the Sennheiser HD 218 Headphones for an ear wrap way to go. Light weight and precise, these are economical too.
- Sony: And then of course there is Sony. Not only do you get the sounds created through the benefit of advanced engineering, you also ensure that whether you’re looking for a professional experience (think DJ like) or an everyday experience (while traveling in the bus) the Sony can cater to you in one headphone set. This is the MDR-V7000 DJ Style, which wraps easily around your ears. It’s so sleek; it’ll be the envy of all your music friends. Something that we just could not help putting on the list!
