Cans for Teaching Music Lessons

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Alright full-sized budget junkies, here are my needs:


1. Isolation - I'll be using these for drum lessons so they need to block out a good bit of extraneous noise AND keep sound leakage to a minimum.


2. Comfort - Circumaural is preferred. May be wearing these for hour-long sessions at a time and would rather not have to worry about how my ears hurt. (P.S. my ears are on the large side)


3. Price - Cheap.


4. SQ - Since listening for analytical reasons won't be happening as much, they don't have to have mind-blowing SQ. Although yes, that would be nice.


5. Adjustable - It'd be great if they would fit both my big noggin and that of the middle school kids I work with. Had some Tascam TH-02s that are up for sale because at their smallest they're still too big for non-adult heads. 


I've read up and it seems like some good options are:


Superlux 668B

Samson 850

Koss ProDJ

Goldring 150


Any comments or suggestions certainly are welcome.

Superlux 668B, Samson 850 and Goldring 150 are open cans they will leak sound out and in. Koss ProDJ100? I have briefly listened them but not very impressed.


Check our Audio-Technica M40fs as I remember they are also drummer version and normal version.
