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
