Jazz spans a period of over a hundred years
, encompassing a very wide range of music, making it difficult to define. Jazz makes heavy use of improvisation & swings. Very reminiscent of European harmony, pop, blue notes & ragtime.
What is the ideal Jazz headphone?
Jazz is always a tough nut to crack
, whether you are playing, recording or even listening
. No wonder it is one of the most exciting genres in the world of music
. Jazz needs clinical perfection
, but with a soul of its own. You want to be able to experience the madness of Buddy Rich
, but feel the love of Charles Barkley.
You would need a headphone that has the most velvety smooth mids
that you have ever heard, tight bass
that is fast
at the same time and highs that are controlled and not harsh
. An open back set of headphones would be preferred, but selected closed back sets and in-ears would also perform well.
