Need Isolation Headphones. Recommendations Please.
on Mar 15, 2009 at 10:18:30 pm

Hi,
I need headphones for on-location video work. Isolation does not need to be extreme, but very good.
Do not want a big beast head set, but something smaller for run 'n gun type filming.

*To monitor audio going to camcorder (Mini)
Thanks for your suggestions!

Hello Blake and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Sony MDR 7506 or Audio Technica ATH M50 are good closed back headphones. I use both.

Regards,

Ty Ford

"Comes out different every time." Wow was that nice. Such a full-bodied, rich sounding guitar.

I should add that I need headphones that are small, light weight, durable, isolation type headphones.
These will take a physical pounding.
Sound quality not a major issue (just faithful to interview voice).
Isolation need not be extreme but very good.
Should be small, so they are easy to carry around (wilderness packing).
If anything else comes to mind, please let me know.
$100 range is fine.
Thanks
Blake

Thanks Blake. I think you're the only one who's commented on my remark.

The Sony MDR 7506 are industry standard at $99.

They are tipped up at the top and bottom EQ-wise, but I actually find that helps me hear wind noise and other problems better.

They fit on not over the ears and are durable and compact when folded up.

The ATH-m50 are bugger fit over the ear (unless you have big ears) and have a flatter EQ.

If you need more isolation,

You might consider a pair of Shure E3/SCL3 "earphones". They give you fantastic isolation and have a very good frequency response (ubt you need ot make sure the seal is good). I don't know where you are located, but I got a pair from Guitar Center's online store for $60. This was after I lost my first pair, which I paid $180 for. Plus, they are great for the iPod/MP3 Player; you'll hear things in your music that you never did before (which may or may not be a good thing). I use mine for monitoring In-Ear Monitors that get used on stage for concerts, as well as listening to my iPod and for on-location audio. Make sure to buy a pack of the yellow foamies; they tend to give the best seal.

The ONLY downside to these is that they are not convenient to take in and out frequently. And, maybe, that your noise sources can be painful if they are too loud and you're not expecting it - you can't just rip these out of your ears.

Take a look.
