Best headphones for older adults

The headphone industry has come a long way over the past few years because what was once something that served a simple purpose, are now thought of as a fashion statement as well. Everywhere you look there are young adults walking around the streets with huge headphones on their head or just hanging around their necks, and more often than not can be heard from a great distance away.

Companies know that this is a huge market, with Beats by Dr. Dre being one of the more popular brands. It’s all very well having these loud, stylish headphones, but what if you are an older adult, what then?

Thankfully, there are still some headphone makers out there willing to cater for older adults and we have three models of what could be the best headphones for older adults, although this is just a personal opinion.

First up are the Musical Fidelity Mf-100 headphones, which goes about things different because these headphones reproduce the sound as they should be, rather than pure bass. This model has been designed by a classically trained musician, meaning you will get to hear even the slightest of sounds. These are not trendy, but then that’s the point.

The Philips M1BT headphones may be dull in its design, but more than makes up for it in sound quality. Again, these headphones will not pump out the bass of some recent tunes, but what they will do is deliver a sound quality that will be hard to match.

Our favorite are the Audio Technica ATH-W1000X headphones, not just because they offer the best sound quality, but because the wooden finish helps give it that vintage look, something that will be ideal for older adults. However, we think the price tag of more than £500 will put most of you off.

What are your favorite set of headphones and why?

I don’t think this guy has ever listened to real headphones. What happened to Sennheiser, AKG, and Bowers and Wilkins?
