Hey you. I know you're feeling pretty damn good right now. Your shoes, jeans, shirt, hat, hair & everything else are looking flawless. The world knows you're about to take over. Right? So you decide to put some music on and fully capture the essence of this moment. “Yeah, that track right there. That one right there! Yeah! This is my song! This one right mutha f*****g here!” you say to yourself as you hit play on your phone. But then you reach down, grab those ear buds and only put in the crusty-ass-looking but still working left earbud since the right side doesn't work anymore.
Hopefully, this isn't you. Unfortunately though, for all too many in the hip hop world, this is how they listen to their music! You might look as clean as Kanye & Kim vacationing on the Mediterranean shores, but your audio game is looking more like the Seahawks throwing that interception on 2nd & goal at the end of the Super Bowl. Not only might your sound quality suck, but people won't trust the musical opinions of someone that doesn't even have proper headphones! So we are going to help you out by listing options that fit many types of listeners and budgets. Now get your headphone game up!
