DOES MUSIC SOUND BETTER WITH THE DISPLAY TURNED OFF?

These days when we listen to music we normally see some form of display, either LED lights, flashing lights on a hi-fi, computer screen, phone etc. Some of these visuals can create electrical noise.
As a mix & mastering engineer I do at some stage when mixing & mastering close my eyes so I can listen to the music (audio) better (I'm not focusing on the screen or any visuals).
Researchers have tested,  if you listen to music with your eyes closed there is more brain activity. It seems when you're listening to music (audio) with visuals your brain doesn't have to work as hard.
I found listening to music with no display enables me to hear the music (audio) more clearly (yes it might sound silly).
If you think about out we listen to music with our ears not our eyes.



Until next time
