Recently, we asked BPM Supreme Instagram followers to share which headphones are their favorite. When shopping for headphones, it’s key to look for good sound quality, high noise isolation and arguably the most important feature of all – durability. Headphones should be able to withstand use in any situation and travel to and from your gigs with you with no issues.
