For an even better price?

Jan 20, 2008 10:39 pm How much are you willing to spend? The Roland RH-50 is good for about $40. I currently use the Sennheiser HD 280. $100.
Of course, the price scale goes up. The fancy electrostatic headphones run into the four-and-five digits.
I recommend the Roland RH-50 for you.
Jan 20, 2008 11:55 pm I got a set of headphones by the name of Equation - RP-21.
I got them purely based on the great reviews I had been seeing, and they are very nice. I find that I have used them more than my AKG 240's. I got them around a $100 from 8th Street music, but you can get them discounted there now for $79 and change.
Jan 21, 2008 04:26 am I use Sony MDR-V600's and I had a pair the Sennheiser HD 280's, both are good but I prefer the Sony, they've lasted longer and I prefer the sound. Both are in the $100 range.

If you're just going to track with them, then focus on finding a pair with good noise attenuation and minimal leakage. AKG and several other manufacturers sell such phones in the $40 range.
If you're going to mix with them, then focus on fidelity and sound quality. It'll probably cost yo $100+ to get into phones with faithful flat reproduction of the signal.

Jan 21, 2008 08:11 pm For tracking, especially vocals were bleeding into the mic is a no no AKG can't be beat. Even the $40 ones are pretty tight as far as that goes.

Audio Technica also has a new one out model ATH M50 that runs around $150 that are killer. Very well sealed and extreme high fidelity. I tried a pair and they are also very comfy.
