Top 5 Studio Headphones 

By:Micheal Thomas

1)  Audio Technica ATHM50 Professional Monitor Headphones 


Top HeadphonesLet's begin with all the comfort- These particular headphones are very comfortable when compared with the others.

You will actually be able to listen to your productions all day with one of these ear pieces and yes it will not hurt or disrupt you at all, Enhanced comfort allows you to record for many hours in the day.

The sound quality is astounding, when you tune in to listen tobeats using these joints you will be in your own world which is great when producing records. You can't even listen to yourself.

Make an attempt to holler really loud whenever you listen to music with these headphones , I guarantee you will not hear yourself screaming.

Another huge advantage in these Studio headphones- is the bass sound quality is amazing and very clear which will be great for mixing your music.

It also includes nice shielding pouch and one yr manufacturer's warranty.

A lot of people even compares these headphones with Beats Studio by Dr. Dre, my opinion:

The studio beats headphones are remarkable headphones! But the M50's sound quality does hold its old compared to the Beats By Dre , the noise cancelling technology is great which makes your beats sound a lot more clear.


The price tag on the Audio Technica M50 headphones is less than half, and from my knowledge, M50 is much more more comfortable.

Don't get me wrong, I think that Beats Studio are wonderful headphones and they also have many advantages, but ultimately is your choice but you will not lose either way.

2) Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO


Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro

This particular headphone completely engulf your ears and just like the Audio Technica M50 are also extremely comfortable, it feels like a couple pillows resting upon your head when you put these on.

I'm a recording studio engineer and I use these babies all day longfor studio sessions.

What I enjoy about them is that you can blast your latest tunes without annoying any one beside you because the sound won't escape you ear buds.

The main focus is for the artist or producer to be in his/her own world without any outside distractions and this headphone delivers on that aspect.

In terms of the music sound aspect of the DT 770 Pro's, fairly bassy but also very clean especially fitted for r&b and hip hop music.

Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO - $169.95

The high peaks are a bit absent. But this is actually a bass driven studio headphone and I thats a great thing and why they are great.

They're also strong and durable (backback ready!!) thats needed if your and artist or producerswho travels from studio to studio.


The only misstep that I could find with these headphones were that they were to BIG for my tiny ass head. But as a studio engineer we have the right to look ridiculous in the studio.


Product Features

♦ Closed, diffuse-field systems "Bass reflex" technology for improved bass response.

♦ Clinically high and mid-range reproduction

♦ Rugged headband construction

♦ Single-sided cableSoft ear cushionsGold-plated jack plug 3.5 mm and 6.35 mm adapter 250 ohms




3)  Sennheiser HD 25-1 II


Music headphonesThe audio sound quality of these is extremely well balanced, with an excellent bass effect, I think is mainly because of the excellent isolation they offer here.

The actual audio stage is just about typical for a closed headphone inside this cost range which is more expensive compared to the first two  headphonesbut they are well worth the price.

Nevertheless, separation on more intricate compositions is extraordinary in my opinion.

They're pretty delicate and easy to pack up, which makes them ideal for movable use.


The SennheiserHD 25-1 II - $218.80


Like most high end headphones, they additionally reap some benefits from top of the range sound, however it is by no means needed to attain their potential.

I actually own these joints most of my rap instrumentals were made using these.

Because of the balanced sound quality, these will surprise enthusiasts of any type of music.

They are every bit as suited for video gaming or studio recording.

The Sennheiser HD 25-1 II is a highly recommended headphone so go check it out.

4) Beats By Dre Studio

Beats by dre headphonesYou normally hear individuals offline and online moaning regarding the beats headphones really being far too expensive.

I think they may be just a tad over priced, think about 3 hundred for a pair of headphones?

Others also preach about how you can obtain headphones with top quality for about half the price tag on beats by dre. Are they right?

These headphones are not economical to some degree, but to me having reviewed these headphones they are increadible earpieces!

The above the head layout design and cozzy ear cups make certain they are an exceptionally secure pair of headphones.

Beats By Dre Studio - $299.00



The bass audio sound on the Beats are great and above the competition.

I have compared them with the other competitive brands and the Studios have blown its competitors away thats my opinion.

The reason I have them at number 4 and not number 1 is the price tag on these babies 299.00

You will enjoy these high decibel thumping headphones, for anything you want to use them for whether is studio recording or as your Apple ipod's main tool. The headphones are available distinct colors.

Really the only feature i don’t like regarding the headphones is the fact they need 2 AAA to operate and thats a downer but overall tremendous headphone from Beats By Dre.

♦ Original Beats Studio, battery-powered over-ear headphones developed by Dr. Dre

♦ Headphones amplify music while blocking out noise

♦ Plush and breathable ear cups keep you cool and comfortable

♦ Flawless, iconic fit with a convenient foldable design

♦ Remote control operation from the cord; mute button on ear cups



5)  Sony MDR 7506

These headphoSony MDR 7506 Headphonesnes are perfect for the purchase price of $99.00. They feature a fantastic balanced audio which happens to be delightful.

The actual bass is rather stretched and its balanced with the overall sound.

The sound quality is great though not too sleek buy silky smooth, it happens to be kind of missing out on the mid bass end of the scale.

The highs on the Sony MDR 7506 come alive, at times too much and require a little bit of eq to tone it down a tad for your ear drums to handle.

These headphones are ideal for studio monitoring and mixing.

Convenience is substantial along with the cozy padding, makes them much more desirable.

In addition they will no doubt survive a very long time due to the light weight aluminum construction. Not too many headphones are build this way nowadays.

Sony MDR 7506 - $99.00


I would recommend this the Sony MDR 7506 To anybody looking to purchase earpieces for under $100.00 greenbacks.
