Understanding Earphone Technology: A Webinar

Cheryl DaProza | 28/12/2015 Understanding Earphone Technology: A Webinar

Earphone technology has come a long way since the days of the first Walkman®. It can be hard to know where to start when looking to invest in a set of earphones. Is noise cancellation important? What is electrostatic technology? And just how many drivers do you really need anyway?

Since their origins as an onstage monitoring solution for high-end performers, "in-ear" earphones have become a common sight on everyone from garage bands to commuters. This explosion in popularity has been accompanied by numerous technological developments, resulting in some of the highest-quality listening experiences available today. Please join Shure earphone specialists Matt Engstrom and Sean Sullivan for a wide-ranging discussion of the latest in earphone technology. We'll look at the evolution of earphones, from dynamic to electrostatic, how to correctly interpret earphone specifications, and the science behind the myth of multi-driver earphones.
