    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.



    I thank all of you for the terrific help on this problem. I have decided to g with Sony’s MDR-V150 simply because $20 isnt negative for a decent pair of headsets. I would go $50 for a set but have other props and so forth to finance for my film even with building some its getting high-priced. Grinner I would do the similar but cant stand them factors, dont know why either. Once more thank you for all of your aid everyone.



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



    thanks for the info I definitely appreciate it. Been having issues obtaining anything useful on google about it. I do want to apologize for my terrible spelling on my initial post it was late and I was obtaining tired.



    I just use 1 tiny ear bud.



    If you are seeking best Affordable headphone so you should really invest in Koss Porta Pro. Koss hit a household run with the PortaPros.There’s no denying the sound quality right here: they’re the ideal companion for mobile audiophiles and property theater enthusiasts.



    Sony has a pair of noise canceling headphones for $50 at Very best Purchase – I’ve had these for years and they are great for on camera monitoring as effectively as plugged in to my Pc for editing. I did acquire a set of the Bose ear buds for my wife for $one hundred and she says they are astounding.



    for monitoring audio although shooting video a noise-cancelling set of earphones would be an asset, as birdcat encouraged. I’ve have not made use of noise-cancelling ones but, myself. A further alternative for monitoring audio whilst shooting is an over the ear set which physically cover the ear, this assists to filter out extraneous noise and helps you monitor the audio that you are recording. Greatest Obtain hasSony MDR 570 LP for $25. Any set of phones that you are going to use for monitoring audio, no matter if while recording in the field or whilst editing on your pc, ought to have as ‘flat’ a response as doable. This means that they never increase bass or otherwiseaugment any frequency that you hear. this way what you are hearingis closeto what you are recording.For monitoring audio although editing, I use either Sony MDR-V150 (on the ear, wide frequency range, lengthy cord, $20-Greatest Obtain) or Koss K240 (over the ear studio monitor, wide frequency,600 ohm model, paid $two.50 at flea market!). I would recommend going to a store and trying before you get. Listen for frequency range (all-natural high, middle and low variety) and eliminating background sounds (if employing for field recording). Good shooting.



    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.



    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.
