HEADPHONES WERE NOT MEANT TO BE PORTABLE

In the 1970s, headphones were used to listen to vinyl records at home. As such, headphone portability has not been an immediate concern for headphone manufacturers. Headphones weigh between 1 and 2 kg. For a sense of relative weight, Beats headphones weigh just 215g.

It was only a matter of time before Sony released the Walkman. This led to a surge in demand for portable his headphones and brought the next turning point in headphone history.
