We Answer the Your Questions:
What Headphones and Monitors do we recommend for a DIY Studio?
In this first installment of the Dark Horse Institute Vlog we answer a questions from Joshua Berg.
Josh asked, “What headphones and monitors are best suited for a DIY Studio?”
When it comes to DIY, I automatically think quality and affordable. There may be better options out there, but these are my 2 go to’s.
The Shure SRH440’s are a very comfortable and efficient headphone.
The SRH440 Professional Studio Headphones from Shure provide exceptional sound reproduction and comfort.
Optimized for home and studio recording, SRH440 headphones reproduce accurate audio across an extended range.
Impedance, power handling and sensitivity are all calibrated for professional audio devices such as DJ mixers, mixing consoles, and headphone amplifier. Includes carrying bag and threaded 1/4″ (6.3mm) gold plated adapter.
You can get them at just about any music supplier.
The KRK Rokits are great because they are highly responsive, accurate and adjustable. Coming in Various sizes and Colors adds a little fun to your DIY Studio.
The KRK Rokit Series takes value-priced monitors to a new performance level. All of the great stuff that Rokit’s have been known for (front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone) are still there, but the G2 Rokit’s feature refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.
Studio Monitor Series from KRK Systems. For years the Rokit series has been a popular choice for accurate monitoring in studios large and small. Now the all new Generation 2 RoKit provides a new standard for even better performance and accuracy, raising the bar once again.
Recessed tweeters may look the same, but they don’t perform the same. KRK has designed a superior tweeter wave guide for the Rokit that provides optimal high frequency pattern control and focuses the sound outward, away from the cabinet. More conventional designs direct sound along the plane of the cabinet where waveform interaction can cause phase problems and increased diffraction.
Also Available in most music Stores, but you can shop around and get them at a pretty affordable price!
