I don't post alot, but have a question for anyone who might have experience in this topic. I've tried to search the site for a similar topic, but to no avail.
I'm playing bass guitar in a church band, and we use hear-back units. I'm able to separately adjust volume levels for each component of the band (drums, electric guitar, acoustic guitars, bass guitar, keyboards, vocals/mics). So, since I'm using this to monitor my own realtime performance with the rest of the band - I usually have the bass guitar turned up the most in the mix. However, I do have all the other components at a lower volume to keep check on all of our performances.
It would be simpler if I could actually hear myself in the main audience speakers - but that's not possible from where I'm at on stage. The hear-back is the only way I can accurately hear myself in the mix.
I'm currently using a pair of JVC HARX900's as my headphones. They are really nice for the price, but the bass can get boomy and a tad muddy at higher volumes. I haven't persued the modifications that have been demonstrated on this site (yet) for those headphones, but that may help with the boomy/muddy. These are an improvement from the Bose triports I was using, but I feel it's time to search out something better to meet my needs.
I'm looking for a set of headphones that reproduce the low to low-mids CLEANLY. These also need to cover the extended frequency ranges of the rest of the band - but I'm not as interested in the highs being crystal clean. The set needs to be rugged, dependable and comfortable.
So, any help here would be much appreciated. Price isn't really an issue, as these would have a specific purpose and I'd be willing to pay for that. Thx ~placeboe~
