    Good question. I would like to know which headphones don't leak too. Some that give a flat response, don't leak, and are cheap. LOL, that would be awesome.

    Do they leak though? That's what I'm concerned with. I'm about to put in 2 vocal booths, and I don't want the mics picking up the sound from the headphones.

    Actually he means the contrary.

    By "leak" he means leak sound from the headphones to the outside (ie to a microphone when a singer is listening to them and recording vocal parts)

    Yeah, mano 1 is correct. I'm looking for some headphones I can have people wear in a vocal booth and listen to the beat through them while recording vocals. But I don't want the mic picking up the music from the headphones.

    I'm currently using some AKG K-55's.

    Flat response, and you have to start hurting your ears before sound will start to leak through.

    I have not compared them to any others but Beyer DT100's are pretty standard in the industry.

    best

    Hey all,

    I have been using 'Studio Kanz' headphones for about two years and really like them.

    They cost me 100 bucks.. whats great is the earmuffs are PVC, air filled, and totally tight. I record drums, vocals, etc and have never been able to hear bleed even at high SPL's. Also, they have a detachable cord, so if you need to feed a 30 ft cable you can do that without buying expensive adapters or new cans.

    Anyone with a booth or separate drum room will appreciate this.

    Also, they feature a volume knob on the L can.

    There is another version avalable called 'Metrophones'. Same air-friggin-tight design, just with a built in metrophone, for about 15 bucks more. Great tool for drummers. Does double duty in the studio, too.

    Stay away from headphones from Best Buy or the department store. Usually they are tuned to accentuate low and high digital frequencies and will not be all that useful for monitoring. Really the only difference is that after an hour of monitoring, your ears really get tired from all the boom-boom shaky-shaky...

    Even though it might not sound quite as good, A pair of Beyer (nice reference earlier, bro) or StudioKANZ will be nice and f-l-a-t yeilding an easier monitoring experience.

    Love peace and hairgrease

    Aaron

    You need 'closed back' headphones.

    beyer make some decent ones. If it's just for a booth then Beyer DT250s or 770s will suffice.
