Getting the right set of headphones is sometimes just as important as the keyboard, as you want the best quality sound when you are playing silently. Here at Normans, we stock a range of headphones which are perfect for audio playback but also for practicing, and so I’m going to suggest some of my top picks you should consider!

Start with the most popular…

Supplied with most of our keyboard packages, the Axus AXH10 Headphones are certainly at the top of my list.  Why?

They are ideal for education and personal use, especially with keyboards & digital pianos.  The comfy ear cups allow you to focus your attention on playing, and not be distracted by external noise and other background sounds! The padded adjustable headband and 1.5m length cable ensures comfort whilst in use, making them ideal for long practice sessions.

These headphones come supplied with a 1/4 inch jack adaptor, allowing them to be plugged directly into most portable keyboards. These are quality, low-budget set of headphones which are perfect for musicians of all ages.

For anyone not wanting to spend a lot on headphones, these are most certainly a product I recommend to everyone, without lacking on that all-important quality. Oh, and the most important thing……they cost under £10!  Unbelievable!

Deluxe Design…

Of course, for the best quality sound available, you would be looking at a Yamaha product. In particular, the HPH-50 Compact Headphones. Designed for musicians spending a lot of time with their keyboard, the bass and treble balance are just perfect, meaning they can deliver the best sound and dynamics you expect from Yamaha. Best thing about them? They are also available in white, so you can match the colour of your keyboard!


Simply the Best…

The new AKG K52 Headphones cover all aspects to suit every music enthusiast thanks to their ergonomic, durable design and professional features that offer an accurate sound representation at a surprisingly low price! Thanks to AKG’s many years of experience in crafting high quality recording and performance equipment, these headphones are perfect for keyboard players, musicians, producers and simply anyone who wants to appreciate every nuance of their favourite tracks.

The overall design of the headphones ensures a comfortable, enjoyable listening for hours and hours. AKG K52 are closed-back headphones that eliminate audio leakage and offers you an excellent level of sound isolation. They have light, cushioned and breathable pads that offer comfortable listening for hours and the adjustable headband means that these headphones will be suitable for everyone. If you are looking for a pair of headphones that sound, look and feel great, the AKG K52 certainly will not disappoint you.

These are just a few of the great quality headphones we stock, but if you need any more advice, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
