OVERVIEW

Detailed sound quality, solid road-ready construction, and cutting edge design.

TASCAM's TH-300X provides the clear, uncolored sound that musicians demand in the studio, while providing plenty of power handling and isolation for tracking and live use. The closed-back design isolates the musician, preventing microphone bleed and feedback. The plush leatherette ear pads and adjustable headband make the TH-300X comfortable enough for hours of wear.

No matter how soft or loud you monitor, the TH-300X can handle plenty of power without distortion. The large-diameter drivers provide plenty of bass response, with treble that's accurate without being harsh for extended recording sessions. The included 1/8"-to-1/4" adapter makes them compatible with consumer or professional gear, and gold-plated connectors won't corrode and crackle after a few years of use.


Great for mixing, tracking or live sound. Order the TH-300X today!

These headphones look, feel, and sound like professional gear.

Came with a 1/4" adaptor to use for the studio or live. They're really comfortable, sound crystal clear with plenty of bass, and with well-produced music, the stereo imaging is just great.

Don't know about the 200 model, which looks to be on sale these days, but these 300's are worth every penny.

I bought these from the SDOD, and I compared them to my sennheiser HD280's. They do not produce the highest octave of frequencies that the HD 280 can produce. It honestly sounds like they have a low pass filter on them at about 5-7k. Everything sounds incredibly dull compared to the 280's. I would not reccomend these to anyone.

        Probably the best set of headphones I have ever purchased. Good for most everything. Good seal around the ears. Never use ear buds if you value your hearing. That's the advantage of quality headphones like these.

          Comments about Tascam TH-300X Studio Headphones:

          Bought these phones on a Stupid Deal of the Day promotion. In all fairness, the phones are about average in construction, and fairly comfortable to wear. Noise cancellation is about average. But the real problem that exists is they are so heavy on bottom end that mixing with them is completely unreliable. Thought I might be able to use them for live tracking, but the same problem exists.

          Finally, I tried them on my Roland synthesized drum kit for quiet practicing. The low end was so great that it overrides a large portion of the higher end frequencies.

          Compared to my Sony and CAD phones, which was another Stupid Deal purchase, these phones are inferior for any serious recording, mixing, or listening. Stick with a set of phones that give you clearer representation of the frequency range and you'll be much happier, no matter what the cost.

          I have bought a lot of gear from Musician's Friend but have to say that they should be ashamed of themselves for offering these at the ridiculous "regular" price. Even when they put them on sale at there are much better options out there. These are like toys, flimsy construction and terrible sound. I don't know who they are trying to fool but if they continue to market products in this manner their customers will wise up and look elsewhere. Do not be fooled...don't buy even at the sale price!

          Not only are these inferior sounding headphones, but within one month of light-duty use around my apartment the plug stopped working, rendering these woeful headphones useless. At least they were cheap. Get a nice pair of Sennheisers instead and you'll be a lot happier.

            Comments about Tascam TH-300X Studio Headphones:

            I bought these on sale during Stupid Deal of the Day recently. Stupid is exactly how I feel after buying these. Absolutely terrible sound! I use (Brand A) HD280 Pro phones in the studio, so I have a very good reference, I think. Compared to the (Brand A), these things are nothing more than toys. I put them on for about a minute before packing them back up and putting my 280's back on. To give you an idea of just how bad these are, I have set of extremely (read - 1/4 the price of these on sale) cheap (Brand X) phones that I bought for the kids to use while playing games and these are a little more comfortable than the (Bran X). That's about it!
            The bottom line is, I am very disappointed. I thought I was getting a good deal, seeing as how the regular price was one fifty. I feel cheated.

                Bought these from the Stupid Deal Day, & am I happy I wasn't stupid not to jump on this deal. I just needed a pair for listening to music & plugging into the amps for guitar. They hold up perfect, WAY beyond my expectations from some pretty good cranked tube amps. Your ears would explode before these distorted. So comfortable, you can hardly feel them. My wife stood 2 ft from me as I had em cranked to the hilt & she couldn't hear them. Again, amazing headphones - at ANY price !

                  Bought some very crummy TH-02 headphones in the past due to lack of funds. I knew they were doing my equipment injustice but had no evidence. I finally took a chance and went for these and I have to say, they have unlocked the sound of my equipment. The Alesis DM8 Pro Kit can put out some pretty deep bass and I was not sure that these would cut it, but, they handle the lows, the highs, and all in between as far as I can tell. So far for me, these have been the best headphones Ive found for my purposes and budget, havent heard many other headphones so, cant really say if these are the best in the world. I can say theyre excellent for someone needing some headphones for an electric kit, or a small home recording studio.

                      I figured I'd take a chance on these because of the SDOTD price. At that price point these are okay 'phones. I would never rely on them for mixing since they are very heavy in the bass range almost to the point of muddy. I was on the verge of sending them back when I realized that I could take the pair of good Sony 'phones out of my video bag, put them back in the studio and use these to monitor camera and digital recorder audio when all I care about is knowing that the audio path is complete and I am actually collecting sound.

                      If you're looking for a set of phones you don't have to worry about if they break, are forgotten or stolen these would be a great addition to your kit.

                      The overall articulation feels compressed throughout the frequency range, but the highs in particular seem really affected. Listening to these after using my trust Sony 7506s was difficult. Listening to them after using my Bose AE2s was harder still. I bought them, however, specifically for band rehearsals in a live room because I knew the Tascams had excellent outside noise reduction AND because the high end was NOT as prominent. I didn't want to bombard my ears with highs during practices, and these were a really good fit for that purpose. So, in the end, they are decent headphones with limitations...definitely not audiophile quality, but effective when used with a dedicated purpose in mind.

                        I find them to be uncomfortable after wearing about 2 hours. I also am losing quite a bit of the high frequencies I was hoping to hear compared to other headsets I own.

                        They are solid in build but mixing on them is impossible.

                          Let me say that this is the first review I've ever done...I've read a lot of reviews about lots of equipment that helped me make good choices over the years and it's time I took a few minutes to give something back...I've bought lots of musical equipment over the years and bought a whole lot from Musicians Friend. I've never had a bad experience from Musicians Friend...Great company and Great people to deal with!...I'm a Country and Classic Rock and Roll singer and guitarist...Bought these Tascam TH-300x head phones as well as my Audio Technica ATH M-20 which were considerably less that the Tascams, but the Tascams are soooo worth the extra money!...I bought both pair for vocal practicing and home recording... thinking if there wasn't that much difference I'd just send the Tascams back...But, The Tascams are louder and a tad crisper and clearer...Really good low end response too...I'm keeping them both but trust me...spend a little more for these Tascam 300x's...especialy if you have some hearing loss,as i do...You'll Be Glad You Did!

                            The headphones are not listed with a cable length, it's like an old telephone cord that's coiled up around 4 ft. and it will stretch up to about 8 or 9 ft. I would recommend getting an extension cable to go with it if you plan on moving around very much. As for the sound quality it is remarkable, and I only wish these headphones were wireless. Next time I will choose wireless, but these serve very well for the price paid.

                            mainly bought for price and isolating factor compared to Sonys I mainly use...that said they were worth the discount as a second pair and I am happy with them.

                              bought them for a stupid deal of the day .... paid a ridiculously LOW price for a GREAT pair of professional studio quality phones. Yes that's right professional quality ( i work in a studio ). So even if you have to pay retail , I highly recommend these. The frequency parameters. are awesome. need phones , buy these ....
