The very first step is to do proper research before you actually end up purchasing a studio headphone. Go ahead and surf the popular website and see what kind of studio headphones are available in the market.

Also, you must be looking for something that offers you top notch quality and that’s the only reason why you are more likely to pick the top brands.

Moreover, if you are picking up a studio headphone from an ecommerce website like Amazon. Then do not forget to read the reviews from the real users. This will give you plenty of idea about the quality of the headphone, and it will be a safe purchase for you.

Also, the plus point of online shopping is that you always have the chance to return the product within a time period. So if you do not like something, return it and look for another one. Isn’t it pretty easy?

Find Your Type
Well, when it comes to studio headphones there are two types are available. These types are the open back headphones and the closed back headphones.

However, between these two, the closed back headphones are pretty common. But that does not mean you should go with them. In fact, you should go with the one that meets your requirements.

Anyway, to give you a better understanding here is a detailed guide:

Open back Headphones:

The Open Back Headphones offers an airflow through the earcups. As a result, the air flow is capable of creating more and spacious sounds. These headphones are ideal for:

·        Mixing and mastering

·        Natural and accurate sounds

Closed back Headphones:

The closed back headphones are perfect for recording tracks. In these types of headphones, the earcups are sealed. As a result, there is no noise in or out. So you do not have to worry about any sound leaking through the headphone and messing up your recording.

You can use a closed back headphone if you are recording a song or if you have a live guitarist in the studio. So this way you will not get to hear any outer sound and focus more on your performance.

Determine Your Fit

Most of the studio headphones are over ear, or they are on ear type models. The over ear headphones covers the entire neck and fits over it and the on ear models have ear pads. Now there is no good or bad about any of these models.

In fact, it completely depends on your needs and personal preference. However, if you are looking for a compact pair of headphones, then the on ear headphone is pretty perfect for you.

But if your primary priority is the comfort, then the over ear headphones is the only one you should go with. Even the over ear headphones are pretty good at blocking out sounds.

Try Them Out

Just in case, if you are planning to get the headphones from a local store. Then there is a good advantage of it. You will get the chance to try the studio headphones before picking up one.

So simply head over to a local store and try a few studio headphones out. However, while testing the headphones, there are a few questions that you should ask yourself. These questions are the:

1.      Which studio is headphone offering the best comfort?

2.      Which studio does headphone sound the best?

3.      Which headphones fit under your budget?

Try looking for a headphone by asking yourself these three questions, and you will find the best one for yourself within the budget.
