    Consider More Me from Harvey Gerst http://www.itrstudio.com/moreme.html

    Or Sony MDR-V150.
    The fabulous Naiant Mics, perfect for acoustic instruments!

    If you don't have DavidK's CD, you are a loser.


    My tunes. Thanks!
    NB
    DA BEARS!

    I just recently ordered a pair of those, still waiting for them to get here. Never knew they sold by Harvey Gerst.

    If you bought them directly from me, you should have them by now.

    And I don't just sell them; I own the company.

    I don't usually talk about them here, and I don't include links or have a sig, since that's not why I'm here. I offer them as a decent alternative to high priced tracking phones, but I don't give a damn whether anybody here buys them or not.

    If I find something as good at the price, I'll be the first one to tell everybody.

    (As a matter of fact, I did just that a year or two ago, here, when Musician's Friend had a sale on their mic holders, and I recommended that people here should buy them from MF, since they were selling below what I sold them for.)

    Thumbs up I'd go with Sennheiser HD202's

    I'd vote for the Sennheiser HD202 - you can get five of them for $89 through BSW :

    I bought this package about a year and a half ago, and they;re great cans for the price. Very comfortable, accurate, efficient, clean, lightweight, they stay on yer melon even if you're wiggling around, they have a LONG cable, and have a stereo mini plug and stereo 1/4" plug. They're pretty rugged too - mine have taken several falls onto a concrete floor with no problems (dang drummers!) BSW is a good outfit too (nice people), and ship quickly.

    Random question for you, Harvey - any idea how much isolation your phones have? Say, compared to HD280s or 7506s? Just curious. Thanks!
