DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know studio headphones are also sometimes referred to as monitor headphones? They are built for professional work and its best suited for recording or mixing. But, they’re often versatile enough to make for great entertainment listening. Aside from that, they are almost always built to last. This is because they often have user-replaceable parts. So if something does break, you can order a new part from the manufacturer and swap it out yourself. Moreover, studio headphones tend to have tunings that try to render the source audio. This means they are often brighter and more detailed than consumer-oriented pairs. The downside of that is you are able to hear every flaw in the music you are listening to. And that is why studio headphones are a must for any producer making music. With the use of them, every distortion, background noise, awkward edits, and more can be heard. You wouldn't be able to hear those with a consumer-style gear, right?
More importantly, studio headphones are almost never advertised outside certain circles. They are also based on older designs that have already made back their development costs. This means they tend to be cheaper than other headphones and provide better audio performance. And that is why studio headphones fluctuate wildly up and down in pricing, while most consumer headphones stay at a stable price.
