Are headphones really that important?
– Yes. Headphones, like speakers, have the task of converting – as faithfully as possible – the electrical signals from your MP3 player or stereo into sound. – At Immersifi, our philosophy is and has always been that the speakers or headphones are the single-most important component in your audio or media system.
– This may stir up some controversy with some golden-ear types (especially those who claim that esoteric cables are worth it), but in our opinion, we feel that the lion’s share of your budget should be spent on speaker / headphones – because they have the toughest job in the audio reproduction chain.
