Have you ever seen someone wearing guitar headphones? You know, I hadn’t either until I saw a picture of Paul Gilbert playing guitar with headphones on. I thought it was an interesting idea. I figure most guitarists don’t want to wear them because they don’t look super cool. However, the reality is that if you’re playing gig after gig, it is simply brutal on your ears. Wearing some really good sound isolation headphones can go a long way in protecting a guitarists most precious investment… no, not his Les Paul, his ears.
Now, some of you are wondering, why the heck am I even writing about guitar headphones at all. Well, I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about my headphone business. I recently launched a new site to pitch my headphones directly to guitarists. They are great for studio musicians and recording sessions, but as Paul Gilbert shows off at every concert, they are great for protecting a musicians ears on stage.
I want to conclude by saying, yes, this is a very strange post for The Daily Burns. But, I actually have kept this site in existence for just such cases where I need to talk about interesting things like headphones that musicians may need. So, I’m sorry if you were hoping to read some good burns news… nothing here but headphones for the moment. Sorry.
