    no-bleed headphones

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Wasn't sure where to stick this question, hoping someone here can help:

    What's the cheapest pair of headphones I get that has no bleed? Understood that ZERO bleed may be impossible, but how cheap can I get a pair that has very little? Sound quality/comfort not important at all.

    I think that Hearvey Gearst sells some cans that dont bleed...and if I know him the quality is pretty good.

    Yeah, the MoreMe headphones are pretty decent at a low price (20 bucks). Go here:

    Koss Pro4AA are almost no-bleed...and sound pretty darn good too!
    These have been around since the early 70's and were a studio staple at one time. I have about 8 pairs that I still use for sessions.

    Then there are these Vic Firth isolation headphones intended for drummers, but I guess they can work for anyone. I'm not sure how good they sound though:

    The MoreMe headphones are good. I can mic a quiet acoustic guitar, with a percussion track or click in the headphones, and no bleed problems.

    miroslav,

    He was asking about the cheapest headphones he could get that don't bleed.
    At $100 and $50, the Koss and Vic Firth really don't fit his criteria.

    Use a pair of bud (Ipod) type phones, and get a pair of ear muffs from a hardware store and wear them over the top. I did this when I went to a Grand prix a few years ago so I could hear the radio commentary over the engine noise.

    Cheers

    Alan.

    I love 'em too. I ordered 'em for drumming sessions, but easily use them as often for clay pigeon shooting...
