Go Anywhere Summer Headphones

Summer is here.  

Here in Montana, we have it pretty good, but “summer” is usually anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months, starting maybe in early May or maybe late June, and ending maybe in late June or maybe early October.  There’s an abundance of fun things to do, just look below at some our staffers whoop it up in the great outdoors.  There are lots of family and friends coming to town to enjoy the MontanaLife, and all kinds of festivals and concerts and holidays, plus weddings, family reunions, and parties.  But there’s really only 9 or 10 bonafide “summer weekends” that can be reliably assumed to only have a 50% chance of major thunderstorms and 10% chance of snow.  So while summer in Montana is pretty epic, it’s short.  Things can get pretty hectic. Downright stressful, even annoying. 

That’s why we all need at least one of the headphones on this page.  Because wherever you are and whenever you might get a spare moment, there’s nothing like a little musical escape to unwind.  Maybe it’s your way of getting through that 4 hour layover in Cleveland, that all-day neighborhood clean up day, or even one of those 3-birthday-parties-on-a-Sunday-afternoon days.

So what are you waiting for?  Save 10% on select models until July 10th.  >>

*FOTM- Flavor of the Month.  Originating in World of Warcraft, this term has also been coined by audio enthusiasts to denote the sudden and drastic rise in popularity of a new product, only to see it's quick and precipitous decline once the hype has been played out.  FOTM phenomena regularly misleads unsuspecting consumers into getting the wrong products and parting them unjustly from the contents in their wallet.

Headphone.com gets a makeover

 

Welcome to our new website!

We have been working overtime to get our new website ready for prime time. However, we still have plenty of tweaking to do now that it is live. Really, this is just the beginning as we see it. While the biggest change you will see is a new design, we are most excited about what you don't see. Behind all the beautiful photos of headphones is a flexible and well integrated website platform. What this means for you is that we get to spend less time coding widgets and more time finding and evaluating great headphones.

The ideas we have on how to improve headphone.com are overwhelming. This is where we need your help. We would rather bring in products that you want or build tools that would help you find the best headphones for your lifestyle rather than just working on our wants. So with that in mind we'd like to ask you:

What can we do better?

What new products would you like to see at headphone.com?

Or more simply, what do you like or dislike about the new website?

Feel free to post in the comments here or email jamey@headphone.com if you'd like to keep it private.

Digital Audio 101: Using Headphone Amps & DACs for Computers & Laptops

Thanks to digital audio, attaining amazing audio sound quality has never been easier.  For a fraction of the cost of old-school analog systems, you can put together a killer computer-based audio system.

First off, Do I Need a Headphone Amp & DAC?

If you're just starting out, investing in a decent pair of headphones is the best way to get the most improvement out of your computer. Plan on spending around $50-$150.  It's important to use headphones that do not require too much power to be driven properly, otherwise they will be under-powered from the relatively weak headphone output of computers and particularly laptops.  However, today there are many highly quality headphones that can be driven efficiently from the headphone jack of a computer or laptop.  Some laptops sound better than others depending on the sound card's quality and the computer's overall value.  

But once you've acquired decent headphones, and you want to know what else is out there, it's time to consider an amp/DAC combo.  The next step in creating a high-quality computer audio system is to use a digital USB-compatible headphone amp & DAC (digital to analog converter). These can be in one unit or two separate components.

Benefits of a Headphone Amp & DAC

Dedicated headphone amps & DACs can solve the following problems commonly found with computer audio: 

  • A large amount of radio frequency [RF] and electro-magnetic interference is generated internally from power supplies and hard-drive circuitry.  A headphone amp/DAC isolates the audio circuitry in it's own box, providing valuable shielding.
  • typically relatively low quality components are dedicated to audio reproduction in computers, while a dedicated amp/DAC will have much higher quality parts, depending on the units price.
  • there is low power voltage swing capacity available in PCs and laptops, while in dedicated headphone amps/DACs the power is designed strictly for one specific purpose.

Digital audio over USB connection can offer great sound quality because the music data is sent in "packets" and is then re-assembled at the receiving end, which is the external DAC device. This means that jitter from USB transmission is eliminated as the data received is re-clocked within the noise-controlled environment of the outboard DAC (or 'combo' headphone amp/DAC).

The Mobile Audiophile-  Using Amps & DACs On The Go

Ah, so you're a mobile audiophile eh?  Lucky for you that today you can have a mobile audio system on par with $30,000+ listening rooms right in your laptop bags!  A DAC becomes a critical piece in your audio chain at this point ,and we recommend an amp/DAC combination thanks to their compact size.  Many little units today offer an impressive array of features, have rechargeable, AA, or AAA batteries, and sometimes in shockingly small packages.  Most are capable of driving most headphones under 300 ohms.  All of these units have USB connectivity, the most popular and commonly available method for connecting a DAC to your computer.

Many headphone choices are available to you at this point, as nearly all these amps will drive most headphones with ease.  Many mobile audiophiles will recommend a high-end in-ear model; impressive universal fit models are available.  For the ultimate in audio reproduction, blissful isolation, and supernal comfort, a custom molded in-ear headphone is a very popular choice.  Several custom brands are available, with JH Audio leading the pack as the premiere custom provider.

Home Use & High-End Digital Music

Most headphone listeners will prefer an over-ear style for most home-based applications; since they provide great sound quality, lots of comfort and ease of use, with many choices at varying price points.  Choosing an open or closed model will depend on your need to block outside noise.

The good news is that extremely high-quality music reproduction on a computer is within easy reach. Headphone amplifiers and DACs can be purchased separately or are commonly found as an all-in-one.  An important consideration for high-fidelity digital listeners is bit rate transmission, with many DACs offering up to 24k/192.  Most amps and DACs offer multiple inputs simultaneously connected and easy switching between sources and from headphones to speakers. Occasionally you will have a computer that offers digital output via optical connection, this can be arguable slightly superior to USB, so you may want to consider an optical connection.  Balanced drive is also a popular way to obtain extremely high quality audio, and a computer can be an excellent source for balanced transmission.

Why To Add Headphones To Your Listening Room

The Benefits Of Headphone Listening For Audiophiles

Sennheiser_Momentum

Although headphone systems for audiophiles are most often used as a way to get a superb listening experience in secondary locations, there are a couple of very good reasons to have high-end headphone capabilities in your main listening room.

Critically speaking, the most precise audio resolution is heard on top headphones. Speakers will always deliver the physical intensity of sound better; but headphones can offer listening isolation and a personal intimacy with the recording in a far more intense way than speakers. If you find yourself hearing things on your big home rig but can't quite make out the nuances, a simple check on reference headphones will make every subtle musical detail plainly apparent.

The comment HeadRoom gets most from music lovers is that they regularly hear things on top headphones that they've never heard before on their $25,000 speaker system. Naturally, audiophiles often must coexist with others who don't want to hear their music late at night or at the office. A superior audiophile headphone system delivers a private listening experience that's different than, but just as satisfying, as a giant room speaker system -- and all without disturbing anyone else.

Top 10 Audiophile Headphones of 2014

Are you looking for the world's best headphones?   Here are our recommendations of the world's best, spare-no-expense ultimate headphones, updated for 2014.

1. The German-engineered Sennheiser HD800 reigns supreme for many audiophiles and is touted by many as the preeminent ‘open-back’ headphone in existence.

2. The Fostex TH-900 is arguably the best full-size sealed-back headphone currently available; many may prefer the mild isolation, comfortable circumaural fit, beautifully rendered mids/highs and textural bass response over any other high-end headphone.

 

3. With nearly the imaging of the HD800, the Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 has a fuller-bodied timbre that will thrill those looking for a more romantic listening experience; with classical music in particular.

4. Listeners seeking the ultimate in juicy, creamy accuracy for rock and jazz have flipped their wigs after hearing the Audeze orthodynamic LCD-2 and LCD-3 headphones, offering unmatched warmth and Magnaplanar-like clarity.
5. The HiFiMAN HE500 is also of  orthodynamic design, a technology currently taking the high-end headphone world by storm. It’s perfectly round timbre and fast dynamic sound is a marvel of high-end headphone audio engineering. 
7. Long considered a classic ‘affordable’ audiophile headphone, the laid-back Sennheiser HD650 still holds its own in price-to-performance for smooth-toned listening.

8. Audio Seekers Of The Great Beyond looking to replace iPod, MP3 player, or other portable device earbuds will marvel at the pristine, rich tone and easy universal fit of the Shure SE846 premium in-ear headphones.

9. Uber-musical in-ear mavens will want to consider going fully ‘custom’ with the Jerry Harvey Audio line of audiologist-molded headphones, a superlative series of in-ear monitors all rating at the very top of the category at their respective prices.

Finding the Best TV Headphones

Most folks will find the best TV headphones are wireless headphones.  Using wireless headphones for TV viewing has many benefits; not only convenience but also improved speech intelligibility (see box below) and the ability for multiple viewers to set the TV volume to their liking.  Wireless headphones can be bluetooth, RF (radio) or digital transmission types.  Some of the best sounding and widest array of options in the wireless field come from Sennheiser, which use Kleer. Kleer is a wireless technology that streams uncompressed digital CD-quality (16-bit, 44.1 kHz) stereo audio in the 2.4 GHzband.  Since Kleer's wireless technology requires very little battery power to operate, it is very efficient for wireless headphone use. Your TV will have a digital or analog connections (or both).  This will determine what wireless headphones and accessories you'll need.  If you have analog outs on your TV, choose an analog wireless headphone.  

Adding a DAC

If you have digital outs you can add add an outboard DAC that will allow the use of a regular analog headphone. A DAC is a Digital to Analog Converter. A DAC takes this stream of digital numbers from a CD player or computer and converts it to an analog electrical signal that can be amplified and used to drive headphones or speakers. 

Read more about a DAC here.

TV Connection Diagram

Connecting Wireless Headphones to Your TV

Wireless headphones have a wireless transceiver inside them that communicate with the headphone base station, which is directly connected to your TV. The base station connects to your TV via analog audio output or digital audio output connections, depending on your  TV (see inset right).  Most wireless headphones include required cabling(check this).  Whether connected via digital or analog, the TV speakers will be adjustable via normal TV controls, while the headphone listener will use the volume control on the headphones.

Today, many televisions only have digital outputs.  While this can provide better quality, digital wireless headphone options are more limited and can be expensive. One solution to this problem is the Fiio D03K DAC, and inexpensive digital-to-analog converter that will convert your digital signal out of the TV to analog, allowing you to use analog wireless headphones.

If more than one person wants to wear headphones, each headphone's volume can be controlled independently. Extra wireless headphones can be purchased and used from the same base station,  although only one headphone can be charged at a time.

Although sound quality is not as good, you can also plug the base station audio directly into the headphone jack (1/8″ or 3.5mm mini plug) on your TV.  This turns the TV speakers OFF. Some older televisions do not have dedicated rear panel audio connections, so this would be the only method for using headphones with your TV.  On most modern TVs, connecting headphones automatically turns off the TV speakers and you'll be able to adjust the headphone volume with the volume for the TV set. You can also use any regular wired pair of headphones with a TV's headphone jack, although a headphone extension cord may be needed.

Speech Intelligibility & Headphones

An important aspect of TV and movie watching is speech intelligibility; how clearly you can hear and understand dialogue.  Another great benefit of using headphones is that all of these particular models are optimized for the best speech intelligibility possible.  Typically, this is determined by how well TV speakers can reproduce lower-treble sounds. The frequency range which determines audible differences between “S” and “F” sounds, for example, occurs between 3kHz and 7kHz, often called the 'presence' region. Many TV's have lousy fidelity in this range, and turning it up louder simply increases distortion modulation. Headphones are able to provide improved fidelity in these critical lower-treble frequencies (and across the board, really) which allow users to listen at a lower, safer volumes.  They allow others in the room to listen at regular volumes via the TV speakers.

Headphone 101: Why You Need To Upgrade Your Stock Earbuds

Your Stock Earbuds, And What's Wrong With Them

You might be asking yourself why you need something better than the little white earbuds that came with your iPod.  Sure, they are getting better, those little white buds have made some progress in the last few years.  But, you should still upgrade for this simple reason: headphones are kind of like shoes. Everyone has different tastes, preferences, and activities while wearing them, so you should have the style and type best for you.  In fact, it's so important to get the right headphones for the right activity, many people own several pairs of headphones for various applications.  But besides that, here are some more reasons why you should upgrade:

  • They wear out.  Customers often call us in frustration after breaking their 2nd or 3rd pair of stock earbuds.  Many of the brands HeadRoom carries feature a 2 year or even Lifetime warranty.
  • It's difficult to achieve a proper fit.  The Earbud style might work okay for some, but for many people they constantly fall out or can be very uncomfortable.
  • Most of the time, you should have more ear protection. Earbuds do not block enough sound to use for loud activities, and the user is surely turning up their music TOO loud to drown out the ambient noise!  (We cringe when we see folks riding on planes or mowing the lawn with those white 'buds; they are probably damaging their ears.)
  • If you're going to wear headphones, they should sound GOOD!  Perhaps most importantly, better sound quality can be had along with the right mix of features and styles that best suit your lifestyle.

Okay, so now how do you know which headphones are right for you?  This depends on what you're going to be doing with your iPod.  Below are some of our top recommendations and most commonly-used types of headphones used with an iPod.

In-ear Headphones.  In-ear headphones offer excellent sound quality and more isolation (typically 25-35 dB) than a closed or noise-cancelling headphone, and are more compact and travel-friendly.  There are many models, price ranges, and features available.

Best for:

  • traveling or commuting on planes, trains, buses
  • use with noisy activities when you want to block out a lot of noise
  • if you're looking for very good sound quality in a small and compact headphone

On-ear & Over-ear headphones.  On ear and over-ear headphones can range in size, but feature a traditional headband with an ear cup that either rests gently on the outer ear or surrounds the outer ear.  Many fold for convenient transport and/or come with carrying cases.  While some on-ear headphones and many over-ear headphones require a headphone amp, there are many options that do not require a headphone amp and are designed for travel and portable use.  These same models will also work well with directly with a computer, laptop, or pad. We recommend most folks look at closed headphones, meaning that they block some outside noise and do not leak your music out; an important factor in social situations.

Best for:

  • Listeners that like the comfort and convenience of a traditional headband style headphone
  • One who may be searching for an “all-purpose” headphone to use on the commute, at the office, and at home
  • Listeners who do not want to carry a headphone amp

Other Headphones, including noise-cancelling, ear-clips, and Exercise Use

If you're looking for a headphone for exercise and workouts, visit our Exercise Buying Guide.  All of the headphones listed there will work well with an iPod.  If you're looking for a noise-cancelling headphone, please see our top recommendations for noise cancelling headphones[link], since noise cancelling phones have an internal headphone amp, they too will all work just fine with an iPod. Finally, here are a few more models that we have found to be popular for iPods:

Using a Headphone Amp with an iPod

If you're looking for high-fidelity listening experience, then it's time to consider a headphone amp and line-out adaptor.  A line out adaptor allows output the audio signal directly from the bottom 30-pin connector of the iPod rather than the headphone jack.  This analog signal can then be fed to a headphone amp, typically via mini jack to a headphone's amp's input.  Most of the headphone amps listed below are portable.

What About Using a DAC with my iPod?

You may have heard about DACs and are wondering about using one with your iPod, but this is not an option.  DACs are digital to analog convertors (you can read more about them here) – meaning a DAC must start with a digital signal that it then converts to an analog signal.  You cannot get a digital signal out of the iPod except with very select equipment (such as the Wadia iPod dock).  The iPod has an internal DAC which converts digital music to an analog signal that is then fed to headphone jack or line-out.  Even when using the bottom line-out connector, this is still NOT a digital signal.  So, you do not need a DAC with an iPod, but do not fret, this is not a huge consideration compared to using high quality headphones, a good headphone amp, and high-bit rate recordings.  Only when you have all 24/96 files (higher than CD quality) and headphones over several hundred dollars should this become a factor.

Trailblazin' the New (Old) Retail Frontier


HeadRoom's Retail Storefront in Downtown Bozeman

We've been pioneers before (the web's first headphone-dedicated website, makers of the world's first USB headphone amp and  first balanced headphone amp)  ...and it looks like maybe we're doing it again.  We knew that our local community would be great supporters of our retail store recently opened in downtown Bozeman.  But we weren't expecting to get much national attention on our boot-strapped introduction of a headphone dedicated specialty store.

But it seems that’s what we’ve got.  HeadRoom’s Headphone Store has recently been featured in several local and national media outlets, including CNET, TheStreet.comInnerFidelity.com, and the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.  It has taken us a while to get an official sign up on our retail location, and thus our press efforts have been very limited, but it seems interested parties do not want to wait.

Here’s a bit of what they have to say:

[quote]“Even more remarkably with@HeadRoom, is how simple the store is. Its the anti#applestore! Fascinating.”   @Digital Skeptic, via Twitter

HeadRoom is far from the only retailer beating the real-store retail drum. For investors weary of watching Web retailers struggle to find profit… done right, selling in a real store is a real business. - Jonathan Blum, TheStreet.com

“After all, it's one thing to read about a headphone, it's way better to have it on your head and listen” - Steve Guttenberg, CNET.com

“Experiencing the store, all the options, and having someone help them find headphones that match their needs fills in blanks the consumer wasn't even aware of until that eye, and ear opening moment.”  - Tyll Hertsens, InnerFidelity.com[/quote]

Some of our favorite headphones catch many an eye, and ear, of downtown Bozeman shoppers.

We’ve also had more than a few out-of-town visitors who have made a point to stop while in the Bozeman area, and even a few who made a trip from out of town. (Last year we had a customer drive all the way from Los Angeles to audition headphones, make a purchase, and then turn around and drive home.)  Nearly all of them ask- “Do you have a store in [insert major city];  or do you have plans to open one?”

Of course the key to any store's success is the ability to turn a profit.  Thanks to our existing online business operation at headphone.com, we have quite a leg up in business and inventory efficiencies compared to others.  Even then, the challenge of being a small local consumer electronics retailer is not to be underestimated.

So, here in the Great White West, are we on the forefront of a retail renaissance?  (Or are we just  blowing too much smoke out of our peace pipes?) Tell us how you think a headphone store would do in your town, and check out a few more photos of our retail space over on Facebook.

(...Have we mentioned that Bozeman is truly one of the best places on earth?  Just another great excuse to plan your next visit to Big Sky Country.  We’ll keep the CD player on repeat for you.)
