Studio headphones are very different from headphones designed exclusively for listening to music in the home. While most headphone models require the reproduction of a harmonious sound image, studio headphones require a completely unaltered representation of the sound signals, which is an important factor for mixing music in the studio and therefore high-quality studio headphones are indispensable in this area. It is important that studio headphones reproduce the music exactly as it actually is. As the models are especially designed for continuous use and have more tools than headphones, they should be comfortable to wear.

Audio & Hifi: Studio Headphones Video Guide

In principle, studio headphones should be tested carefully for their wearing comfort, because after some time in the studio at the latest it becomes apparent whether the headphones that appear comfortable at first also offer a permanently good fit and are actually comfortable. Studio headphones are always constructed closed, with the large shells of the headphones tightly enclosing the ear to keep outside noise away from the ear. For example, many Studio headphone models are also suitable for musicians who need headphones on stage. Studio headphones should always reproduce the sound unaltered and rule out changes in treble, midrange and bass frequencies

Ideally, high-quality studio headphones should provide a balanced frequency response in order to accurately perform critical monitoring. The differences between the various Studio headphone models are particularly related to the quality and focus of the sound generation. The different models also differ considerably in terms of wearing comfort. High-quality models show their strengths particularly in continuous use, because if the tuning of individual frequencies is not harmonious, the ears can tire quickly. This aspect is particularly essential for professionals for understandable reasons

The sound signal should be reproduced as unaltered as possibleBalanced frequency response and uncompressed dynamics should be guaranteedThe spatial sound reproduction must be rightThe studio headphones should not fatigue the ears.

As a rule, studio headphones are produced closed, as external noise must not affect the hearing when working in the studio. The ear is ideally shielded from the outside world by studio headphones. To make this true, the Studio headphones are extra large and completely enclose the auricle. Professionals will always choose these models. However, some semi-open studio headphones are now available that are in no way inferior to closed headphones. Of course, it always depends on the respective field of application. The half-open headphone models are also interesting, for example, for musicians who play in a band and can still hear their fellow musicians through the headphones while their own sound is in the acoustic foreground of the headphones.

Studio headphones are available in a wide variety of price categories, with high quality professional models costing half a fortune. With regard to studio headphones, the subjective hearing experience is always decisive. Most of the time, however, the more expensive models also deliver the better sound. Studio headphones should always be tested before purchase.
