Getting the most from a headphone review. Listening to my music through a set of quality hi fi home studio stereo speakers lets me relax like nothing else seems to. I like hearing the mid-range vocals coming out clear and crisp. The bass is something I like to feel as well as hear.
The problem comes when everyone else wants to go to bed and I still want to take in some of my favorite music. In my quest to feed the audiophile inside me, I finally determined sell beats headphones were the answer. It was either that or go it alone. But, this presented an entirely new set of problems.
I discovered “these cans” had some a long way since the last time I was looking. I had choices and a lot of them. I could get them with open end or closed end. In my case, I determined closed end would be best so the sound could not go out and disturb anyone around me. It seems with an open can, what I’m listening to is still dispersed somewhat into the surrounding area.
I found out about passive and active noise cancelling headphones. I had to choose whether I wanted the background noise canceled by just the ear pieces themselves (passive) or were those little electronics inside going to stop the ambient noise (active). Because I’m on airplanes a lot, the active noise reducing headphones would get rid of the background rumbling I didn’t notice until I tried a set of these…amazing! This was perfect.
In my quest for the best headphones, I ran into a technology I had never heard before about stereo head sets. Bluetooth. What is bluetooth? Wireless? In ear? No cords? You have got to be kidding. This wireless stuff was something that appealed to me right away. I could move with my music and not land on my keester because I tripped on the cord. All I had to do was buy a wireless set for my stereo and I was good to go. I could move up to 300 feet away and still enjoy my tunes. This meant I could be all over the house and listen to the radio or my favorite CD. This was sounding more interesting all the time. I can not stand to sit for very long. So, I had to find out what I could to help me decide.
Well, how about the ultimate in any audiophile’s dream…surround sound. I could get a head unit that gave me true theater quality sound with the touch of a button. I have since found out many wireless sets like the Koss, Sony and company who only sells the best in all have single button surround sound. This was sounding pretty good to me. I learned I could switch from stereo sound to surround any time I wanted.
Unearthing the wireless units revealed something entirely new for me. It seems I could answer a call on my cell phone right from my head set while I was listening to my music. No longer could I use the excuse of not hearing the phone because I was reviewing a new CD. I am not entirely sure I liked this idea. Yet I could see the benefits and so could my friends and family. It seems all I had to do was push a button and put the music on hold while I answered the phone. After the call was through I could go back to my world.
From what I was able to learn, I was able to make my choice of the headphones I wanted. They are perfect for me. I am pleased with what I bought. There is a set out there for you, too. Just do some research and some reviews like I did and you can discover a complete listening experience like no other.x
