    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.



    Sony has a pair of noise canceling headphones for $50 at Ideal Buy – I’ve had these for years and they are fantastic for on camera monitoring as properly as plugged in to my Computer for editing. I did obtain a set of the Bose ear buds for my wife for $100 and she says they’re remarkable.



    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.



    for monitoring audio whilst shooting video a noise-cancelling set of earphones would be an asset, as birdcat advisable. I’ve have not used noise-cancelling ones but, myself. A different option for monitoring audio whilst shooting is an over the ear set which physically cover the ear, this assists to filter out extraneous noise and assists you monitor the audio that you are recording. Finest Obtain hasSony MDR 570 LP for $25. Any set of phones that you are going to use for monitoring audio, no matter if when recording in the field or though editing on your pc, must have as ‘flat’ a response as feasible. This suggests that they do not enhance bass or otherwiseaugment any frequency that you hear. this way what you are hearingis closeto what you are recording.For monitoring audio whilst editing, I use either Sony MDR-V150 (on the ear, wide frequency range, extended cord, $20-Ideal Obtain) or Koss K240 (more than the ear studio monitor, wide frequency,600 ohm model, paid $two.50 at flea market place!). I would recommend going to a shop and attempting just before you purchase. Listen for frequency range (organic higher, middle and low variety) and eliminating background sounds (if utilizing for field recording). Good shooting.



    Thank you also for the sound suggestions.So no head set with bass boost for in the field or for editing.



    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.



    I just use a single tiny ear bud.



    I thank all of you for the good help on this problem. I have decided to g with Sony’s MDR-V150 due to the fact $20 isnt negative for a decent pair of headsets. I would go $50 for a set but have other props etc to finance for my film even with creating some its having highly-priced. Grinner I would do the identical but cant stand them items, dont know why either. Once more thank you for all of your assist everyone.



    thanks for the details I definitely appreciate it. Been having difficulties locating something helpful on google about it. I do want to apologize for my terrible spelling on my initially post it was late and I was obtaining tired.



    The Sony headphones are cheap (BestBuy $25-$50) and well worth it. We have four-five pairs of them lying about and they look to tolerate all sorts of abuse and stay functional.
