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!

You can’t go wrong with the Stagg SHP-1200 Stereo Headphones, priced at an eye-catching price. Perfect for smaller children, these are great for practicing your beginning keyboard pieces in style.

They have been designed to go around the back of your head, instead of ‘on-top.’ As they are fitted with a mini jack connector, Stagg have also included a ¼” jack adaptor to suit all keyboards.



Start with the most popular…

Supplied with most of our keyboard packages, the TGIH10 Classroom Headphones are certainly at the top of my list. These are great for players of all ages, due to the adjustable headband and padded ear cups. 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.

Going for the best?

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!


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!
