Remember back in the day when you simply couldn’t underestimate the power of a good pair of headphones or earbuds? We’ve come a long way from then. But whether old school or fresh off the market, both headphones and earbuds serve a virtually irreplaceable role. Most recently, musicians and studio technicians have found themselves in need of a little more that the average headphone can offer.

Unlike regular music junkies, musicians require specialized equipment due to the plethora of functions they perform. It could be singing in the studio or even up on stage in front of a live audience. Whatever the case, musicians have to be able to listen to even the most subtle beats. In addition to delivering great quality sound, musicians also expect their headphones and earbuds to allow them to hear what the band is saying as well, especially on a noisy stage. Let’s face it; it doesn’t matter how great your voice is if you can’t hit the right notes or you keep getting lost in the melody. Therefore, Sonic Electronix introduces the top 5 musician earbuds and headphones that will make for an unforgettable performance.
