    Hi everybody,
    Im new to all of this and i want to know wich headphones are good for what i want.

    Im a singer and when im recording, i want to hear my music.
    But i dont want the music to go in the mic.
    You know, what they have in those studio's.

    So the artist could sing his text, but the music he/she hear cant go in the mic. A headphone thats closed, that only the artist can hear it and if someone's next to him, they cant.

    I cant give more then 100,- for it.
    I looked in the search but i dont have that much time cuz i also need to do other things.. i hope someone can help me :D

    thanx,
    Stanza

    Sony 7506's are pretty much the standard for most people. A little bright, but they're the most common.

    right at 99 I believe. If you don't want the music getting to the mic, and you want some less-bright headphones, AND you want to look hilarious whilst wearing them; then check out the Extreme Isolation headphones which are around $80 if I remember right.

    I think I have had an issue with a click track bleeding through on a drumtrack using the Sony's, but they do sound MUCH better than the Extreme Iso phones. But if you don't require a high-pitched click blaring in your ear, shouldn't be a problem.

    I'm not sure how much they are in USD, but if you want some really nice headphones that isolate like no tomorrow, check out the Sennheiser HD-280's. They are great headphones, and realllllly comfortable.

    The Extreme Isolation headphones are great at isolation, but the drivers are very heavy on the low mids and don't sound that great. I would go with the Sennheiser HD280's.

    The Sony 7506 are a very good set of headphones, but if you are worried about isolation, I would go with the HD280.
