“Good music” said conductor Thomas Beecham in 1950 “is that which penetrates the ear with facility and quits the memory with difficulty.” It is the part about the ear that today’s audiophiles will most eagerly gravitate to. We’re taking Mr. Beecham out of context to some extent, but the truth remains that we must properly listen to music so as to actually love it.
earphone technology has come a long way since the days of the Walkman (remember them?) and even further since the appearance of 8-track. Whilst it could be argued that music itself has tumbled right into a descending spiral of mindless repetition and dim exercises in empty ‘cool’, it can’t be disregarded of the fact that facilities for paying attention to music on the go have improved an amazing deal.
Once you’re out and about, a earphone set really has its work cut out for it. Noisy trains, loud conversations, cars buzzing around and broad hustle and bustle all require drowning out because you take pleasure in something rather more palatable in your earphone.
When you’re someone who always has a cracking compilation of MP3’s wherever they are going, you may need a good Headphone set. Otherwise, what’s the point? Put simply, for ‘good music’ to be ‘good music’ a Headphone set you are able to depend on is a necessary purchase.
Here in 2013, Headphone technology is more exciting than ever before. Portable music is so much more precise thanks to these earphone advancements. Get yours today.
