HEADPHONES the saviour of the modern classroom?

Headphones come in many different shapes and sizes, but really there are only a few fundamental types. There’s the very popular circumaural and supra-aural style that most studio engineers and DJs use and the discreet earbud style for both consumer level music devices and high level IEM (In ear monitoring) systems for the live musician. There’s also only a few distinctions to be made within these so here goes!

Circum-aural Circumaural headphones completely cover your ears and isolate against any external noise.

Supra-aural Supra-aural headphones sit ON your ears rather than around them and offer less protection from bleed and outside noise, but are lighter. These can for example be better for DJs who don’t actually want to be fully isolated from the sound in the room, but still need to hear what’s coming through the headphones.

low end is contained within the cup of the headphone and does not escape.

Open Back Open back headphones are often preferred by people making critical mix descisions (especially when the mix is near completion) as they do not colour the sound quite as much as their closed back counterparts, with ventillation allowing for a more natural flow of air. Be careful checking bass levels with open back headphones though as they can prove inconsistent (just open up your main monitors again to double check).

looking for headphones to use with a portable player or laptop, stick to the range of 16 – 32 ohms; High-End Headphones Favor High Impedance - the advantages of higher impedance being a more sophisticated coil can be used in the driver (more winds) so a better overall sound and reduced distortion. Battery powered devices don’t work well with high impedance headphones.

Earbuds To be blunt, cheap earbuds are nasty BUT it’s how your typical consumer will be listening to the finished article so it’s important to check your mix on these too.

Fancy models

Headphones come in many different shapes and sizes

If you’re going to be wearing headphones for prolonged periods of time, consider your comfort. Higher end models have more adjustable bands and feature better cushioning pads and longer cables that allow you to move around more freely, not to mention are made of better quality components that will last longer. Rotating speakers are also super handy for vocalists and DJs alike.

Closed Back

Impedance

Closed back headphones are excellent for situations where you wish to avoid leakage, such as a recording session where you need to avoid spillage into the mic (like the classic click track problem!) For checking the bass levels of a mix this type are brilliant as they are so isolating from the outside world. Often much louder than open back models, they offer a bigger bass reproduction because the

Headphones range in impedance from 16 Ohms to 600 Ohms. So, which impedance is best, and WHY DOES IT MATTER? It depends on what you plan to plug them into - headphone sources generally put out very different amounts of power into different headphone impedances. If you’re
