Does Hi-Fi audio make a difference?

If you're still using Hi-Fi speakers to make do with mixes and recordings, your final product may sound very wrong. The reason we need monitors for our work is because monitors can help you dig deep into the most complex mixes and ensure that your finished audio will look good in your car stereo or on fancy Hi-Fi gear. A relatively accurate representation.

So what is the difference between monitor speakers and Hi-Fi speakers? In a nutshell: Hi-Fi speakers deliver high-quality sound, and monitor speakers faithfully reflect the original audio signal.

Hi-Fi speakers are specifically designed to give listeners a good listening experience. In many cases, this design is theoretically "beautifying" the sound, and they themselves boost some low and high frequencies (coloring) to create a very nice sounding effect, which is better than one that can Speakers that accurately represent the original recording do sound more seductive. So by comparison, some professional monitors tend to be less flattering, but the sound it will express will be more detailed and accurate.

For example, the low end of the monitor speakers may not sound as full, but when you hear your own mixes, it will be more layered, and all the components in the music are very clear. At the same time, professional monitor speakers will accurately reflect the sound range in the frequency range of 30hz-20kHz (approximate range, different brands of monitor speakers of different grades), which can better help you distinguish the air in the acoustic guitar. Or the sound of breathing in a human voice. Obviously, the clarity of the overall sound will allow you to better distinguish the sounds of all the instruments, which will help you to better decide what to do with the audio, whether it is equalization, compression or other processing methods.

When optimizing sound depth and imaging, monitor speakers can help you better coordinate your sound, and can help you get more sound information when you mix down. Good monitor speakers can better transmit left and right pans. relation. In addition, there is another thing that is easily overlooked, that is, the general Hi-Fi speakers are not as responsive as professional monitors.

After figuring out the difference between professional monitor speakers and Hi-Fi speakers, there is another concept you need to briefly understand, namely: the difference between passive and active speakers.

Active speakers: that is, the speakers have built-in sound division and amplification circuits, and only need to connect to the power supply and input music signals. Many studio monitors and professional speakers for engineering are active speakers. Since the speaker itself already has a complete drive circuit and is equipped with decoding and sound division, plus the digital interface input, the sound bottom of the active speaker will be more stable, unlike the passive speaker, which is more affected by wires and amplifiers.

Passive speakers: The most common two-channel speakers are passive speakers. Contrary to active speakers, there is no built-in amplifier circuit, and it needs to rely on the output of the rear stage or the combined machine to drive the sound. Compared with traditional active speakers, which are mostly bookshelf-type designs, passive speakers come in a variety of styles.

Of course, there are still many, many details and parameters of monitor speakers that you need to identify and choose by yourself. As for how to choose a suitable pair of monitor speakers, you need to understand some technical-related issues yourself. The key to good monitor speakers, these are not listed here.

In addition, in addition to monitor speakers, in-ear monitoring headphones have also become popular, and every musician who needs to monitor work has begun to use them.

In-ear monitors do have many features and benefits over traditional monitors. However, the effectiveness of monitoring headphones is sometimes amplified, and monitoring headphones, like speakers, will suffer a lot. Although it looks professional, it does have some drawbacks.

If you only use monitor headphones without monitor speakers, the sound pressure of guitar and bass will disappear; in addition, with monitor headphones, it is difficult for you to feel some low-frequency or ultra-low information; these may reduce your perception degree, affecting the mood of the performance. The most intuitive example is when you are sitting in front of a physical speaker and playing a riff is not the same as when you are playing with headphones.
