noise reducing headphones - on a budget
on Jul 28, 2014 at 11:06:07 pm

I'm on a quest to find the perfect noise reducing headphones - on a budget. Has anyone had any luck? So far everyone says the Sony MDR-7506's, but I hate them, there's a metal ping sound to them. This is for video editing and for audio mixing in the field.

What do you mean by "noise reducing"? Do you mean headphones that actually are noise canceling, or are you looking for headphones that are very isolated?

There are a number of headphones that are built into ear protectors like those used by airport workers and on weapons ranges, but they are on the pricey side.

If you don't like the Sone MDR-7506 you may want to check out the Sennheiser HD 380s; about US$130.

Peace,

Bob
