Headphones for the win!

As long as I can remember I love headphones. I love the directness of it, the super clear details. Details you will not be able to hear on monitors because our senses are very much dependent on distance. The closer you get to an object the more details you will be able to detect, as simple as that.

Today I listened to the interview with mastering engineer Glenn Schick on The Mastering Show podcast. Nowadays he’s only using headphones for mastering what I can totally understand.
