Studio Headphones are designed for professional recording and mixing applications. Designed to meet the demands of the modern producer, they have a flat natural and detailed sound that allows accurate referencing of audio. The two main types of studio headphones are closed and open back. PMT Online stocks a wide range from all the best brands including Beyerdynamic, AKG, Yamaha, Marshall, Sennheiser & more.
Closed back suits environments where greater noise isolation is required, leaking less sound and having prominent bass response. When mixing and monitoring in live environments, closed back will offer the required isolation blocking out background sound.
Open back provides a very expansive sound field, but are less isolating. Generally, studio engineers looking for precise, detailed sound choose open models for their accurate realism, whereas closed backs may be used by artists when recording their music.
Headphone Amps can serve for a number of purposes, such as to split the signal and allow more than one person to listen to a mix on their own individual headphones, or improve the audio-quality of what you're listening to on playback.
Hi-Fi Headphones will be generally cheaper and are the ideal choice, as the name suggests, for listening to music rather than recording.
Whether you're recording in the studio or mixing live gigs, PMT offers an excellent range of studio headphones. We currently recommend the Excellent KRK KNS 6400 closed back model, AKG 701 open back, or the industry-standard Beyerdynamic DT100, which is still a firm favourite!
