    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.



    for monitoring audio even though shooting video a noise-cancelling set of earphones would be an asset, as birdcat advisable. I’ve have not made use of noise-cancelling ones however, myself. One more alternative for monitoring audio whilst shooting is an more than the ear set which physically cover the ear, this aids to filter out extraneous noise and assists you monitor the audio that you are recording. Greatest Invest in hasSony MDR 570 LP for $25. Any set of phones that you are going to use for monitoring audio, whether or not while recording in the field or while editing on your computer system, must have as ‘flat’ a response as achievable. This implies that they never boost bass or otherwiseaugment any frequency that you hear. this way what you are hearingis closeto what you are recording.For monitoring audio when editing, I use either Sony MDR-V150 (on the ear, wide frequency variety, extended cord, $20-Greatest Get) or Koss K240 (over the ear studio monitor, wide frequency,600 ohm model, paid $2.50 at flea market place!). I would recommend going to a retailer and trying before you obtain. Listen for frequency range (all-natural high, middle and low range) and eliminating background sounds (if applying for field recording). Very good shooting.



    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.



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



    If you are hunting ideal Low-priced headphone so you need to get Koss Porta Pro. Koss hit a residence run with the PortaPros.There is no denying the sound high-quality right here: they’re the best companion for mobile audiophiles and household theater enthusiasts.



    I thank all of you for the excellent enable on this concern. I have decided to g with Sony’s MDR-V150 mainly because $20 isnt poor for a decent pair of headsets. I would go $50 for a set but have other props and so forth to finance for my movie even with developing some its obtaining costly. Grinner I would do the exact same but cant stand them things, dont know why either. Again thank you for all of your assistance everybody.



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



    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.



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



    thanks for the information and facts I seriously appreciate it. Been obtaining complications discovering something beneficial on google about it. I do want to apologize for my undesirable spelling on my 1st post it was late and I was having tired.



    I just use one tiny ear bud.
