4 Music Genres and Which Earphones to Choose

Pick the perfect earphones for your favourite music genre

Music is a personal experience. Different genres appeal to different people. You might love listening to loud music while your friends may like slower, softer tunes. You should choose a headphone depending on what kind of music genre you love listening to.

If you ever were to listen to more relaxed music with a bass heavy headphone, you can be sure to have a terrible experience. The music bliss which you would have been craving for would be destroyed then and there. Ideally, every kind of genre deserves to be played with a compatible headphone to drive you the best sound output.

Here's our list of five music genres and the headphones which compliment them.

Rock

It is a well-known fact that there are a vast number of sub genres under the Rock music moniker, therefor you would always need something highly versatile. Y

The requirement is definitely something that performs across the range, with an intense energy and has no problem playing laid back tunes. Capturing the slightest elements of your metal music is the most important function of your headphones.

Pop

op music is undoubtedly all about energy and enjoyment. Sure there will be a mellow song here and there, but well, you know what you like Pop for, it’s fun!

As a Genre, Pop music is not highly demanding of the equipment used to listen to it. It just needs a pair of headphones that deliver, with a fair bit of accuracy and loads of energy. The bass needs to be fast, but controlled and the mids and highs need to be clear. Pop is meant to be fun, thus you need headphones that aren’t very analytical, doesn’t sound harsh and should be easily accessible and not a hassle to use.

Electronic

Electronic is the music of the current times, even Pop and Hip-Hop artists turn to these types of producers to produce their tracks. 

Just like Rock Music, Electronic also has a vast variety of sub genres that deliver their own kind of sound. Electro-Pop, Electronica, Dubstep, House, Deep House, Trap, Club House, Brostep, Reggaestep are a bunch of the popular ones right now.

With Electronic music you definitely need the right headphones to get the best of it. You need headphones that have loads of fast paced bass and don’t sound harsh: one that does the job for most sub genres. One with good performance throughout the frequency range will take care of the rest.

Classical

Classical demands Perfection, Perfection and Perfection! Astonishing clarity and immense attention to detail are the key elements that your headphones should comprise of. Equipments that are sub-par can not do justice to this genre. You need neutrality, accurate imaging and an expansive soundstage. Having said this, your headphones have to be engaging enough for you to comfortably enjoy Bach or Beethoven for hours on end.
