Comments about Stanton DJ Pro 300 Single-Side Headphone:

I am a professional trumpeter and I often work recording sessions that require the use of head phones. Conventional 2-ear headphones are great, but not the best when recording brass.

First, brass players never accurately hear themselves when playing. Let me clarify: the sound of a trumpet manifests about 1 foot beyond its bell. Hence, brass players never hear the "business end" of their actual sound. Guitarists hear their true sound if they're playing an electric guitar sitting in front of an amp. Try standing behind the amp and tell me you don't hear a difference.

Brass players typically practice/rehearse without headphones. They get accustomed to how they perceive their sound from behind the sound source. This affects articulation, tone, pitch, rhythm, etc... It almost feels and sounds wrong when their sound is pumped back to them via a speaker or headphones while playing. At least this is true in my professional experience.

I bought these single-ear headphones primarily to use on recording sessions. Since I play trumpet, I hear my tone 2-3 feet from behind the actual sound. I found, when wearing two-ear headphones, that I can't hear my sound as I normally do. When it's pumped into my headphones, I consequently play differently. That's a problem when the artist hired you based on your sound...

Additionally, when wearing both ears, my intonation suffers. I am well aware of my instrument's tendencies and my physicality. When listening with both ears, the sound has to travel through an additional membrane which slightly detunes the sound. If I wear one ear off, the headphones don't fit right and it risks bleed of the playback into the microphone.

Single-ear headphones are a great compromise! I can wear one ear for playback and use the other to acoustically monitor my sound. I hear my sound and pitch clearly and naturally against playback. These headphones get 4 stars because the cord is a little short; an 8 food cord would be much more conducive to recording.

    Comments about Stanton DJ Pro 300 Single-Side Headphone:

    This is my fifth headset from Stanton in over 15 years. Of the previous four, two are still operational. I prefer to mix using a headphone in one ear while leaving the other ear open listening to the room's sound.
    The sound of this headphone is great and you can't beat the price.

    Comments about Stanton DJ Pro 300 Single-Side Headphone:

    Time and again, I have seen vocalists in the studio listening to one side of a headphone set so they can better hear their own voices as they sing. I've done it myself. So, I asked myself, why not buy some one-sided phones? The ones targeted at studio use were pricey and, really, better than necessary -- the singer only needs to be able to follow the music.

    So, these headphones marketed to DJs caught my eye. The price is reasonable and they are completely adequate for the job. Except that the cord is most definitely too short and I do have to use an extension!

    I hate to do this, but....

    By Mathew Bray

    from Okinawa

    Comments about Stanton DJ Pro 300 Single-Side Headphone:

    Please do more research and spend more $ for something much better. They hurt your head, you can't turn them up, and you can't even use them for light personal listening because you only have one can. These are now my "backup backup headphones."
    I dislike these headphones. They seemed promising, but were a big let down.
    They are light and seem built very well. The sound quality is the big let down. When you need to turn them up a bit, they easily are maxed out and distort. I've been using bose headphones, and the difference is night and day. After wearing them for about 10 minutes your head wants them off. For some reason they quickly become uncomfortable. At first they feel wonderful, but then your dome starts to ache.

    The cord is nice though.
    Seems a good value, but I would not pay anything for these. I would pay for them to not be manufactured, and have the materials go to building something better.
