The right sort of headphones can transform a writer's experience immediately, and drastically. Not only do the right headphones block out ambient noise, they can also keep you isolated in your own world, where it is your brain and only soft music that flows through you and into you the keyboard. When I have something particularly focus-required, I find a dark place to write, no matter how loud it is, and I fade out behind a wall of chillstep music with soft sounds and beats, no vocals, and I tend to lean more toward the atmospheric sounds to get me through. There's just something about working through an idea, or an assignment when I feel like I'm in my own world, unhurried, and under no stress or obligation. The ideas flow easily with little to distract me. With the right headphones, even busy, bright, and loud areas of the world can become your writing sanctuary.
No doubt, that can be a difficult question to answer. But luckily for you, I've had the chance to try out almost every style and company out there, and today I bring you Audio Technica's ATH-M70x professional monitor headphones. You can use these in a recording studio, or abroad. Even for backpackers, these headphones fold up small and are stored in their own slimline case. Why am I suggesting the ATH-M70x's? Well, they provide optimum sound quality, crisp highs, thick bass, total comfort, and the ability to transform for all styles of travelers. The headphones are closed-back, which provide the listener with isolation, the ear cups are comfortable, plush and feel great, which also provide the listener with the ability to close themselves off from the world – this is my favorite aspect of these headphones, because they work toward that private atmosphere experience, which I find perfect for my writing scenarios. The ATH-M70x headphones are high quality in every regard, AND have I mentioned they fold up?!
