Best headphones for a beginner home recorder?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone. I've joined to ask for help on getting a new pair of headphones. They will be my first "worthy" pair of headphones that have cost me more than $10. I've just started recording some music at home, mostly acoustic/folk/alt/vocals and I need a good pair of headphones for playback that won't cost more than $150. They don't have to be amazing, as a beginner I have little knowledge and obviously would rather spend less money, however I want something where in a couple of years when I'm more experienced, they won't be complete crap sounding to me. Something I can also have everyday use for would be good also. 

 

A few brands I've been recommended are:

 

Sennheiser (HD449, HD203 [although they are cheap a friend has them and they say they are really great and would suffice])

Roland (RH200)

Shure

AKG

 

I also do not want to get a pair that do not have a detachable/replaceable cable as I am prone to breaking those.

Any help and suggestions would be really appreciated.

I prefer the HD 380 myself.
