BACK FROM THE DEAD

Lucky for most of us, there are many different types of headphones to choose from. This means that we no longer have to buy an embarassing pair of cheap headphones, since there are more than just a handful of professional quality headphones. Before Pioneer took the spot for the most expensive and quality gear – the other contenders were already making listening devices. Technics was the master when it came to decks, and no other turntable company could really keep up with their pace.

Naturally, they also made a line of mixers and headphones to go along with their table – and these were just as good too. The Technics 2-channel mixer is still well known in the DJ community, although it is long past its time. Technics also made a pair of headphones which looked very close to the design used on their turntable platter. Again, these held their spot for some time – but were quickly sent to the back after years of new companies creating their own gigs. It has been told that Technics is looking to recreate this special set of headphones – and people are sure if buying them for nostalgic purposes, perhpas that is enough for them.
