When looking for a new pair of studio headphones, there are a few things to consider in addition to price and brand. If you are going to be spending a lot of time working on your next project, either as a musician or producer/engineer, look for headphones that are designed to be comfortable, and relatively lightweight. If you are a drummer or simply play in a loud band, you might want to consider closed-back or even specialty drummer headphones that block out external sounds to varying degrees. You might want to take a look at our Noise Canceling Headphones as well. If you are going to be mixing on headphones, or just want as much accuracy as possible when tracking, look for headphones described as “Studio Monitor Headphones” such as the Audio-Technica ATH-M50. Studio monitor headphones will not color the sound, like most consumer headphones, so when it comes to mastering your recording you won’t be surprised by how it sounds. As with everything we sell, all our studio headphones are supported by our price & satisfaction guarantees and free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items.
