Headphone Recommendations.

Post by Mist001 » Sat Apr 04, 2020 3:31 pm

I've tried numerous headphones and every set has the same problem: Bleed.

I know that a certain amount of bleed is to be expected but are there any recommendations for headphones which are known to absolutely minimise bleed?

Cheers.

I’ve been very happy with my Sony MDR-7506 headphones.

In ear monitors, Shure is the industry standard, great as headphones too.

If you are getting bleed from closed backed headphones you are listening to them WAY TO LOUD. Turn them down.
