Sennheiser HD 1 Headphones: A Headphone for Every Predilection

In-ear, over-ear, wireless, wired, iOS, Android—there’s something for every headphone preference in the HD 1 series. For instance, if you’re looking for an over-ear pair of Bluetooth headphones with leather earcups, the ability to reduce noise, and a voice-optimizing microphone for phone calls, there’s certainly an option for that configuration. Perhaps you’re a fan of wireless Bluetooth but would prefer something in an in-ear, neckband style.

How to Upgrade Your Sound System

Perhaps you started with a small, self-contained PA and need better quality with greater output.

Maybe you started with an inexpensive analog mixer and are looking to make the jump to a digital board. If you have made an initial investment into a sound system and are looking to make some upgrades, here’s a short list of ideas that might be worth investigating.

Basic Tips and Tricks for Electronic News Gathering (ENG)

If you’re an audio person who likes the adrenaline rush of on-location recording, you’ve got options for work. On the music side, there are on-sight jazz records, classical concerts, and rock venues.

Fake it till You Make it: Turn One Guitar Track into Several

Has this ever happened to you? You’re mixing a rock record, one that needs to sound as huge as possible, but you run into a huge roadblock: there’s only one guitar track to work with—for the whole song.

Moving from Stills to Video: Audio, Audio, Audio

If recorded poorly, audio can make something completely unwatchable. Have you ever opened a video online to crackling and noise and decided that it just wasn’t worth enduring? Clarity in audio is one of the most important things for keeping your audience immersed in the world of a film.
