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.
