    I have been using these. they are a great perspective to use warming up.
    I bought a Golden Age GA-47 and an Austrian Audio 818. I love these microphones. They are different and both really nice to record with. I have a stereo path of a great river NV 2 and a Daking compressor.
    Big purchases tend to both inspire me and guilt me into making sure that the material recorded is the best it can be. I am doing daily vocal warm ups, then record a vocal of a song, then analyze.
    It is a marathon to see good improvement.

    Hearfones are very good at making you aware of nicks and rough parts of your singing.

    Sorry - Isn't this just a daft looking gizmo that does the same as the folk singers hand over the ear. I really can't imagine these things are anything more than a gadget. I think I'm already aware of the problems with my voice and don't need to look a right plonker~!

    Is this some weird kind of spam topic? It’s got to be?

    No spam, they are a tool a voice teacher suggested. They sure do look very silly, but i wear them when i do warm ups and that is usually alone.

    I've worked with professional actors and singers for years - trained at prestigious places, and NONE of them use these, and despite having been trained all over Europe - their warm ups and exercises are very, very similar. I really cannot imagine any of them wearing these.

    However, as a recording forum, we're not immune to gadgets, but these products would seem to be a joke product. Clearly there is science there to a degree, creating a conduit to the ears from the mouth, but there really isn't a need for this.
