Head phones were built by modifying the concept of earlier telephone earpieces. The older version was like a set of two small speakers that the people used to hold close to the ears when listening to some music or any other audio output. They were excessively used not only for the recreational purposes, but also by the professionals like DJ’s in Disco, radio Jockey, to get rid of the acoustic feedback and observe their own sound. The musicians also used them for practicing the song along with the track in the background.
