Are you an online DJ or radio presenter who is looking for a new pair of headphones for DJing? Rather than trying to write my own post on this I would like to point you to a great podcast episode from Daniel J. Lewis at The Audacity To Podcast.
In episode 151 of his podcast Daniel discusses nine considerations when choosing a new pair of headphones. Of course Daniel focuses on the requirements of podcasters rather than online DJs or radio presenters but the areas he discusses are still very relevant.
The 9 considerations that Daniel discusses in new headphones are:
- Accuracy of frequency response
- Sound Leak
- Sound Isolation
- Bone conduction
- Cord Style
Perhaps the only area not covered is making sure you select a robust pair of headphones – especially if you are doing a lot of gigs. Headphones do have to take a lot of abuse and I know I’ve had plenty break on me!
Daniel concludes by reviewing a number of popular headphones in the mid-price range.
This is a great podcast episode which I think is well worth a listen if you are thinking about buying new headphones for DJing online or presenting a radio show.
