One of the main advantages of a digital piano is the ability to play it silently through headphones. This means you can practice when you want, how you want, for as long as you want without bothering neighbours, family or flatmates. Making the most of the tone of your digital piano requires a high-quality pair of digital piano headphones specially designed to handle the range and depth of every note.
Today, almost every digital piano features an integrated headphone jack; some new models are shipped with headphones included. While they might suffice for beginners, these headphones are often one of the first things you’ll want to upgrade. Although most headphones will manage a decent tonal range, they often struggle to handle the lower and higher ends of the register accurately. This can leave your playing sounding a little flat or thin. Digital piano headphones are designed with the full frequency range in mind.
Our piano headphones can be split into two main types - closed-back and open-back.
Closed-back headphones allow for excellent noise isolation, cutting out other sounds and letting you immerse yourself in your playing. They also ensure others in the room can’t hear the piano. However, they generate a more closed, in-your-head sound than open-back headphones.
Open-back headphones offer a more natural live sound but less insulation from outside noise. Over a longer period, they also tend to be more comfortable than closed-back models, as fresh air can circulate more freely.
Our selection of digital piano headphones includes models from Kawai, Dexibell, Roland and Yamaha. Our staff are always happy to talk you through the current range and answer any questions you may have.
