Recommend wired headphones for guitar amp.
« on: February 26, 2019, 09:04:44 am »
Hi Guys
Having dismissed the idea of Bluetooth headphones due to the delay issue, can anyone advise on what wired ‘phones they have experience with and recommend. Not high spec pro ones, but quality with value for money. Thanks

Thanks guitardan. Re WiFi amp - I’ve enough issues with WiFi in the house, poor signal, too many other things using it etc. so have decided simple is better. Also I’m connected by cable from guitar to amp anyway! It was just that I already had decent noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones bought for a flight to Australia last year.

Hi sairfingers
I must say I'm more than pleased with the AKG head phones, I think they were £45.00 from Amazon. I know you can spend a lot more, but for the money there decent and very comfortable, which is paramount if you're like me and have to use silent practice, I also use them with my traveler guitar, with a vox ac30 plug in amplifier and they are perfect

Thanks guitardan. Always good to get a recommendation. I’m researching this on the internet too. Like everything though, there are so many reviews to read and things to learn. All facinating stuff!

Not worth spending much unless you plan to also use them for listening on half decent audio equipment. Guitar amps aren't hi fi and only put out narrow range of frequencies, so spending a lot of money doesn't buy a high sound quality inexperience

Thanks for that Drubbing. I've already got really good Bluetooth 'phones for listening to music so I think a £40-£50 maximum is the way to go. Any cheaper and I think comfort would become an issue, although I don't intend using them other than for some late night practice.

Update - ended up buying Audio Technica ATH-M20X headphones £39 from Amazon. They are light, comfortable and sound great. Perfect for occasional silent practice.
