Best Headphones for Gothic Music
Having the right headphones is incredibly important. After all, what is the point of liking decent music if you aren’t listening to it in the best quality all the time?
As well as the general things for headphones, such as sound quality (and maybe, style), there is one important thing to consider when getting a new pair. You have to think about the sound leakage. This is especially important if you plan to use your headphones in an office environment. Your music may be good, but it is unlikely that everyone will want to listen to it.
Panasonic RP HTX7 – Stylish and Practical
So, for the first entry, there are these wonderful pair of Panasonic RP HTX7 headphones.
Pretty cheap, but without compromising on quality. These headphones come in a variety of different colours, and simply look cool. Pick from creme, black, white, red, and many other colours.
But also, there is a large amount of padding on them, which help to prevent sound leakage, allowing you to crank them up without having to worry about if people around you can hear them.
Sennheiser HD25 – The most accurate sound money can buy
Whereas, if money is no object for you, then you should consider the Sennheiser HD25. This is especially true if you are into the more electronic, heavy, harsh side of goth.
These headphones are the best at reproducing every sound within your song to it’s full quality.
Another great things about these headphones is that they are also pretty damn amazing at blocking around background noise. So if part of your problem is noisy neighbours, or needing some music to cut out background chatter in your place of work, these headphones will allow you to isolate yourself inside a cocoon of sound.
Made out of plastic, the Monoprice 108323 headphones are surprisingly affordable while still creating an amazing sound.
These are the perfect headphones if you are into the more rock side of goth music. They cover the bass lines and the high and lows of each song pretty damn well, and you don’t have to worry about cranking them up because they are also pretty good at blocking both the music inside and any noise outside.
Another great things about these ones is that they actually use a standard 3.5 MM cable that you can take in and out. This means that if you buy them, and the cable starts fraying (maybe you were dancing just a bit too much) then you don’t have to throw the whole pair away; you can just get yourself a new cable.
Grado Prestige Series SR80e
Whereas, if you aren’t too concerned about sound leakage (maybe your headphones are only gonna be used at home), and you have a bit of cash to spare, you should consider the Grado Prestige Series SR80e
As they do not have the same level of padding as the other headphones in this list, there is the problem of the sound leaking out everywhere. And, also, you would be able to hear any background noise around you. However, these headphones are maybe the absolute best in this list for producing everything in your sound. Other than a small bit of problem with the bass, everything else, no matter how loud you crank these up, is perfectly reproduced.
