Radiopaq Custom Tuned Earphones – Is There A Real Need?

radiopaq-custom-tuned-earphonesRadiopaq, the same company behind the internet radio station website, has created a new range of headphones that promise the perfect sound for people into different music genres.

The new ‘Custom Tuned Earphones’, will offer Classical, Jazz, Pop and Rock fans an optimised sound based on their choice of music genre.

Radiopaq are apparently worried that music fans are having to put up with “one-size-fits-all” headphones and state that these  mechanically tuned individual headphones will produce a different sound to make the most of the music that is playing.

Radiopaq therefore say that the Rock offering will provide a warm sound with a tightly controlled bass, while the Jazz offering will give rhythm, pace and a perfectly recreated soundstage. Classical promises 25% more detail in the mid to high-end range than standard earphone while Pop will give you a strong vocal balanced with up to 30% more detailed mid range.

Users will also get three sizes of ear cushion to choose from and the headphones will be available for £59 from the usual places on the highstreet and online.

Now, I may be wrong – but surly it’s all about frequency response where speakers and headphones are concerned?

My Audio Technicas can rock, metal, jazz, classical, funk and drum n bass without changing for some other cans.

Until I’ve tested these Radiopaq offerings I’ll stick with my one-size-fits-all.
