How to Measure Bass in Headphones

When it comes to listening to the bass in music, it might take a few moments to properly hear it. You can’t really blame anyone; the bass is, of course, the lowest part of a song. It consists of the lower registers of music. It’s a low-pitched sound that needs a low frequency. Putting it in a more literal way, it’s the sound you feel when you’re in a club or an enclosed space where the music gets too loud and the walls vibrate.

The bass is a beautiful sound because it adds a feeling to a song without the need for lyrics. Because of its long wavelength sound waves and low tempos, the bass needs a lot of speaker area. You would need sound equipment like a bass amplifier or a bass speaker in order to fully appreciate the bass of a song.

Perhaps the most important thing to consider when measuring bass is the frequency range.

The Frequency Range is measured in Hertz and is used to measure the range of audio frequencies. Standard headphones usually have 20 Hz to 25,000 Hz. The lowest number represents the bass and the highest number represents the treble.

Having a lower bass or a higher treble doesn’t necessarily equate to a better bass performance, it just means that the headphone is able to reproduce lower bass or higher treble. When it comes to bass performance, it depends on the quality of the headphone and the preference of the listener.

It’s also good to know that having a noise-cancelling function can give you a better listening experience. A noise-cancelling function reduces ambient noise and gives a clearer sound quality. It’s also going to cost you, so be prepared to shell out some bucks for this.

Good quality bass can be achieved when you have the right kind of speakers. Just because you turned up the volume doesn’t mean your music is going to sound straight out of a concert scene. A headphone that has a bass boost feature is a headphone that can deliver a more pronounced bass sound. It gives emphasis on the bass instead of regular earphones.

With all these features considered, it’s important to take note that quality is what makes the headphone. It can have a number of features that are all listed here but unable to deliver a grand performance. Bass can sound muddled and cracked, so it depends on the headphone you’re using.

One way to help find the perfect headphones is to know what type works best for you. There are different kinds of headphones that can work for different types of people.  ere’s a general overview of the types of headphones:

Types of Headphones

Supra-aural Headphones / Ear Pads

Supra-aural Headphones have ear pads that press against the ear. They sit on top of the ear and reproduce great sound with great bass. However, they can’t provide a lot of sound isolation because theydon’t completely cover the ear. Compared to circumaural headphones, they tend to be smaller, lighter, and less comfortable and inexpensive due to its design.

Circumaural Headphones / Full-Size Headphones

Circumaural Headphones, or full-size headphones, are over-ear headphones that completely and comfortably cover the ear. The sound is enclosed and sealed against the head to reduce external noise. They’re more expensive and heavier compared to supra-aural headphone but they bring a better bass performance because of its design.

Wired Headphones

Wired Headphones require a cord or a wire to connect with. They don’t need batteries to power up, just a quick connection to your device. Having no batteries means no time limit. You can use this whenever you want. The downside of wired headphones is its risk of getting entangled. It might not work best during cardiovascular workouts.

Wireless Headphone

Wireless headphones, on the other hand, connect through Bluetooth or NFC. It’s easy to pair the headphone with your phone or computer and start listening to your favorite music. This makes it ideal for people who listen to music while working out. You won’t have to worry about getting the wires tangling because there aren’t any, to begin with. Note that wireless headphones run on batteries and are limited to a certain amount of power consumption.
