HEADPHONES

Almost all the solid state recorders we sell come without headphones. We have therefore carefully selected a small range of varying kinds that will deliver the performance you should have for judging whether or not your recordings are as you want them. Of course, there are thousands of cheap and nasty headphones around (even some with impressive brand names backed by slick marketing). We make no excuse for not offering them here. They may be easy on the pocket but they are not easy on the ear. You simply cannot accurately monitor digital audio with them and often many of them don't last very long. These do, and they you can really trust them...

SOLID STATE SOUND INEAR-1
Low Cost Noise Cancelling Earphones

We are often asked for a pair of "cheap-but-good" in-ear type headphones to go with our lower cost solid state sound recorders. Trouble is - there's no such thing. As ever, with in-ear headphones you get what you pay for, so it's not surprising that a pair of earphones you've only paid a few quid for sound thin and tinny - no good for judging your precious recordings.

That's why we've worn our ears out trying various makes and types of low-cost in-ear headphones and at last come up with a solution. Here's a pair that are reasonably priced and yet sound really very good indeed, delivering accurate top and mid as well as rich bass. Certainly good enough to use with our sub-£300 recorders, and at a price that may be more than those horrible thin and tinny ones we mentioned but is surely worth it.

  • In-ear headphones for listening comfort over long periods

  • Ergonomic design, ensuring a snug fit in the ear

  • Canal type in-ear headphone reduces external noise

  • Frequency response 17 to 23,000Hz

  • Impedance 16Ω

  • Sound pressure level (SPL): 121 dB

  • Jack plug: 3.5mm right-angled mini-jack

  • Cable length 1.2 m symmetrical

  • THD, total harmonic distortion < 1 %
