Re: Good light headphones
How about custom-molded in-ears phones? I have the lower-end ones from
Future Sonics and they are great. I use them with everything: iPod,
practicing, as stage monitors, even as ear plugs for sleeping on
airplanes. They get a little sweaty after a while but are much better
than full headphones.
Hmm, I just checked and they appear to have discontinued the ones I have.
I paid $200 for the phones and $100 for the audiologist's fitting. But
there are other brands out there.
Actually, the squishy foam inserts work very well; you just have to wait a
couple seconds for them to expand each time you insert them. And the
silicone inserts work well for some ears. It's important that they fit
snugly. You can test fit/listen at iPod stores, Brookstones, Sharper

Subject: Good light headphones
So, I've found the best time to play music in my world is on the weekends.
My studio is basically a room that doesn't get much ventilation if you
keep the windows open. It's on the ground floor and I worry that I'll be
way to noisy to my neighbors so I've been wearing headphones. They're
good... a $100 or so pair of AKGs, but they're HOT after a while. Any
recommendations of a decent pair of studio headphones that allow one's
to breathe? Audio getting in isn't that much of a problem.
