i broke my decent headphones a wile ago and have been useing some wireless pieces of shite to record with for this compilation and i cant hear shit.. so i spend my last pennys on some new ones.


i bought the behringer hps3000's as thats all i could afford Crying or Very sad

they seem ok sound wise and are comfy anuff..only downfall is they dont seem too strong but i will be carefull with them.

so now tell me how i could of better spend my 15 quid lol

sennheiser hd201 = ?15

tho to be fair, ive never tried the behringer ones so i cant compare, but i like the sennheiser a lot for the price, im only saying it cos you said to say how you couldve better spent it not cos i think you wasted your cash

tho in geekland, you get more kudos for having sennheiser written on a plastic strip on your head than you do for behringer

those sennheiser arent exactly studio quality or anything, id just guess they were a tiny bit better than the behringher.

though saying that, the higher range sennheiser headphones are well worth the money if you want pro quality. these ones are cool and cost about ?80

open back means they have some holes in them, so you can hear a bit of background noise (sometimes a good thing) and you can wear them for longer periods without fatigue.

closed back feel tighter to your head and the foam almost feels like its making a tiny vacuum when you wear them because of thelack of air holes. they block out more background noise, but they bring on fatigue quicker so you cant work for as long periods

sounds like you want closed back, but its usually not so black and white, and open backs still generally block a fair bit of background noise

it was actually quite hard to do a google search and get any more info than "super transparent highs", but judging from the picture id say you were right

actually i just thought, by 'closed ear' they just mean they cover your ear rather than anything to do with being closed in the more usual sense. id still say they arent fully open though.

I understand that...start saving now for a proper set, use the cheapos for now, and later, the cheap headphones can be a backup set or something...
