We asked our favourite music photographer, and all-round icon, Ross Halfin if he would be interested in taking Ashdown Meters headphones with him on his travels, to share with his friends around the world to get their opinion and if they liked them, the chance of the odd photo here and there…
Ross Halfin fell into music photography almost by accident, sneaking his cameras into concerts of The Who, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Man and Free. At the time, Sounds, Melody Maker and NME were all heavily invested in the punk scene and nobody captured the energy of those gigs quite like Ross, cutting his teeth to the likes of The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Jam, Adam Ant, The Adverts, The Specials and Blondie.
Ross soon realised he preferred capturing bands with bigger, more eye-catching stage shows and rock stars who looked and behaved as such. He would spend the following decade travelling the world with such heavyweights as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Def Leppard, Guns N’ Roses, Kiss and Mötley Crüe in his viewfinder and also worked as an official tour photographer for Paul McCartney, George Harrison and once again, The Who amongst numerous others.
“The feedback from everyone has been overwhelmingly positive, music as it should be heard. Meters headphones deliver something that others can’t with true musical tuning enabling every detail to be heard and in some cases hearing things never previously noticed on final mixes… The Meters OV-1-B collection of headphones raise the bar. Check out the link below and get yourself a pair…” – Ross Halfin
