    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum and would like some advice on getting a pair of budget headphones for a recording studio. I would like to use them for recording vocals mainly and it's important that the headphones are able to prevent a lot of sound leaking into the microphone.
    Ideally I would like the headphones to have a replaceable lead and be comfortable and pretty decent sounding.
    My budget is £50 max.

    I have done a reasonable amount of searching online over the past few days and have narrowed my choices down to :-

    Monoprice 8323 - £15
    Superlux HD669 - £24
    Superlux HD661 - £24
    Superlux HD631 DJ - £36

    Which of these prevents sound leakage most effectively?

    I have been using a pair of old Sennheiser EH2200's until they recently died after 10 years of serious use. My other headphones are a pair of Beyer DT880 pro's which I use for mixing and absolutely love!!

    Which of these would you recommend for mainly recording vocals, guitar and bass in a studio?

    Thanks

    Your question was answered where it was posted on Rock Grotto. But I don't know if you want to look at the offerings by HifiHeadphones U.K. Here's a list, and I think the Fostex TH7BB would be good.

    Closed Back Headphones

    I'm going to agree with Dale here, the Fostex TH7BB is my favourite full size headphone under £100 - And they will be great in a studio.
