Factors to consider while buying Studio & Professional Headphones:
Closed-Back Or Open-Back - In your search for studio & professional headphones you will encounter closed-back, semi-open, and open-back headphones. This is very important because they're pretty different from each other. Closed-back headphones have ear cups that are completely closed off, and since the soft foam (or leather) pad forms a seal with your head around your ear, the sound has nowhere to go, so it stays inside the ear cup. The majority of headphones out there are closed-back. Open-back headphones have ear cups that are not closed off. The part of the ear cup opposite your ear - the one that faces the outside world - is open, meaning that instead of sound staying contained within the ear cup, it can travel outwards. For best isolation, you’re going to need Closed-Back headphones. If you’re mixing or monitoring when recording electronic instruments, then Open-Back headphones are going to give you a more natural sound and be less fatiguing on the ears.
On-Ear Or Over-Ear - On-ear and over-ear is a pretty easy concept to grasp. An on-ear headphone rests on top of your ear, and an over-ear goes over and surrounds your entire ear. You can choose a headphone that best suits your preference.
Frequency Response - Every headphone advertises its frequency response, which is the effective range they can reproduce of bass, mids, and treble. Some headphones have a frequency response beyond what humans can hear (5 to 35,000 Hz for example). What you should look for in a pair of Studio & Professional Headphones is accuracy and keep in mind the headphone's frequency response curve.
Comfort - A headphone’s comfort is as important as the sound, no matter how you feel about any other criteria. If a pair feels like a head vice after 30 minutes, you’ll never be able to focus, get in the zone, and truly enjoy your music production.
