Closed Back Headphones

Closed-back headphones feature solid cups on the back of the headphones, providing excellent noise isolation. This design ensures that external sounds are blocked out, allowing you to enjoy your music without distractions and preventing sound leakage, which keeps your audio private and undisturbed by outside noise. Closed-back headphones are ideal for diverse uses. For commuters and travelers, they offer a sanctuary of sound in noisy environments like buses, trains, and airplanes. Musicians and recording artists will appreciate closed-back headphones for studio use, as they help monitor tracks without bleed into microphones, ensuring a clean recording. Traditional closed back designs often have a less even frequency response than open back models, but you should also consider designs which feature built in DSP to compensate, or with acoustic metamaterial tuning such as those found in high end Dan Clark models


Open Back Headphones

Discover our selection of open-back headphones, designed for audiophiles and music enthusiasts seeking excellent sound quality. Open-back headphones don't have solid cups behind the drivers, but instead have grills that allow air and sound to pass through, resulting in a wide, natural soundstage that enhances your listening experience. They often have a more even frequency response than closed back models. However, there are some limitations to consider. Open-back headphones are less effective at isolating external noise, making them unsuitable for noisy environments or on-the-go use. Additionally, sound leakage can be an issue with spill tracking vocals or acoustic instruments, or just that others nearby may hear your music.


Studio Monitor Controllers

Analogue monitor controllers are a very important part of a modern digital studio. Most interfaces only have digital volume controls, which actually reduce the bit depth of the signal as well as turning the volume down. By using an analogue controller, you retain the full bit depth and detail at low volumes.
