Hi, I am very uneducated about headphones and for that I apologize. But thank you for reading this thread! My boyfriend is an inspiring artist and records his songs in our closet, he has high quality microphones and laptop and all around studio equipment, but because he has spent so much on those pieces he doesn't have enough money to get better quality headphones. I'm not sure which ones he has, but he says that when he records he has to keep the volue level low because he can hear the beat that is playing through the headphones when he replays the song. Or if he can't hear the beat, he hears a slight buzzing sound when the beat plays through headphone and out of the speaker when he listens to what he created. Again, I am not knowledgable on this subject, but I would like to get him new headphones that will last him adn that he will be happy with. Thank you for reading this thread!
