“Good music” said conductor Thomas Beecham in 1950 “is that which penetrates the ear with facility and quits the memory with difficulty.” Its the part about the ear that today’s audiophiles will most eagerly gravitate to. We are taking Mr. Beecham out of context to some extent, but the fact remains that we need to properly listen to music in order to actually love it.
Headphone technology has come a long way since the days of the Walkman (remember those?) and also further since the advent of 8-track. Whilst it could be argued that music itself has tumbled right into a downward spiral of mindless repetition and inane exercises in empty ‘cool’, it can’t be unnoticed that the facilities for paying attention to music on the go have improved a good deal.
As soon as you’re out and about, a Headphone set really has its work cut out for it. Deafening trains, loud conversations, cars buzzing around and broad hustle and bustle all require drowning out as you take pleasure in something rather more palatable on your Headphone.
Even if you’re someone who always has a cracking collection of MP3’s where they are going, you need a good earphone set. Otherwise, what’s the purpose? Put simply, for ‘good music’ to be ‘good music’ a earphone set you can rely on is an essential purchase.
Here in 2013, earphone technology is more exciting than ever before. Portable music is so much more precise thanks to these Headphone improvements. Get yours today.
