‎Are headphones the future of music listening?‎

‎© naftemporiki.gr Are the headphones the future of music listening?‎

It is now a common place for people to be seen on the street enjoying their music through headphones.

Studies show that listening conditions have changed radically‎‎, ‎‎and now the way the music is produced is changing because of the headphones.‎‎ ‎

The data put forward by Nielsen research company certifies that the ideal way to consume music content from a mobile device is through the headphones and not -of course- from the limited capabilities of the mobile speaker.

‎Experts note that the production of music is directly intertwined with the way in which one listens to it, so it is important to emphasize that the ‎‎sense of closeness that is created between the listener and the musician through the headphones‎‎, may ‎‎bring about changes in the way in which you compose popular music.‎‎ ‎

Experts point‎‎ out that ‎‎many great successes of recent years, remind a tone of a whisper‎‎ that does not disturb the listener who hears a piece of music directly in his ear. Thus, ‎‎the vocals of the modern tracks‎‎ seem ‎‎to have already been influenced by the way that one chooses to hear them‎‎. ‎

Another element that the experts emphasise‎‎ is that ‎‎in modern music production there is an increase in bass frequencies.‎

This has to do with the fact that in the small speakers of a laptop or in the headphones, it is difficult to enjoy bass clearly, as was the case with a home stereo.

The ‎‎mixing of music‎‎ is now ‎‎based on listening conditions in a noisy environment, on the go, with the use of headphones‎‎, so the overall sound effect is different when one hears it in a well-designed home audio system. ‎

Finally, a major difference from the massive use of headphones‎‎ is that ‎‎listeners‎‎ may ‎‎choose songs that would have been difficult to play in a home audio system‎‎, further fitting their music choices to their particular preferences, which is not impossible to be a ‎‎springboard for listening to more experimental music.‎‎ ‎
