    I have been into video editing for awhile, it wa snothing professional of even close to good. It was more or less for my personal collection. But now I have an Canon HF R100 HD camcorder with external mic and headphone jack. My problem is headsets, I wont a good heaset that I can use for audio monitoring through the Camcorder. I dont have a lot of money and looking for a cheap but decent set. If you have any ideas let me know.



    I thank all of you for the fantastic enable on this situation. I have decided to g with Sony’s MDR-V150 for the reason that $20 isnt terrible for a decent pair of headsets. I would go $50 for a set but have other props etc to finance for my film even with building some its acquiring highly-priced. Grinner I would do the exact same but cant stand them issues, dont know why either. Once more thank you for all of your support every person.



    Thank you also for the sound advice.So no head set with bass boost for in the field or for editing.



    I have some Skullcandy brand headphones that I wouldn’t part with. I got them for Christmas with a Best Buy gift card. They cost $32 and offer great sounds. They’re not noise cancelling and then don’t completely cover the ear. Go to Best Buy and try out all their headphones.



    One thing- monitoring a shoot with noise canceling cans can result in some surprises back in the editing bay… I did it once and didn’t notice the buzz in the footage until it was too late.



    for monitoring audio whilst shooting video a noise-cancelling set of earphones would be an asset, as birdcat suggested. I’ve have not utilised noise-cancelling ones but, myself. An additional alternative for monitoring audio when shooting is an over the ear set which physically cover the ear, this assists to filter out extraneous noise and helps you monitor the audio that you are recording. Very best Buy hasSony MDR 570 LP for $25. Any set of phones that you are going to use for monitoring audio, no matter if though recording in the field or although editing on your laptop, should have as ‘flat’ a response as probable. This indicates that they do not boost bass or otherwiseaugment any frequency that you hear. this way what you are hearingis closeto what you are recording.For monitoring audio while editing, I use either Sony MDR-V150 (on the ear, wide frequency range, extended cord, $20-Very best Buy) or Koss K240 (more than the ear studio monitor, wide frequency,600 ohm model, paid $two.50 at flea market!). I would recommend going to a store and trying ahead of you acquire. Listen for frequency range (all-natural higher, middle and low variety) and eliminating background sounds (if applying for field recording). Fantastic shooting.



    If you are looking very best Low-priced headphone so you should really invest in Koss Porta Pro. Koss hit a home run with the PortaPros.There is no denying the sound top quality here: they are the perfect companion for mobile audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts.



    Sony has a pair of noise canceling headphones for $50 at Most effective Acquire – I’ve had these for years and they are fantastic for on camera monitoring as nicely as plugged in to my Pc for editing. I did invest in a set of the Bose ear buds for my wife for $100 and she says they’re incredible.



    The Sony headphones are cheap (BestBuy $25-$50) and properly worth it. We have 4-5 pairs of them lying about and they look to tolerate all sorts of abuse and remain functional.



    I just use one particular little ear bud.
