    Hey guys,

    I just read this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=87509 and it prompted me to ask a question I have had for awhile. I live in a fairly small flat and need to get some headphones for quiet practice. Does anyone have a recommendation for some good 'phones for this purpose? I would also be using them for monitoring in my home studio setup (MBox/ProTools) if anybody thinks this makes a difference. Preferably not too pricey, naturally :D

    TIA,

    Ben

    The two I've found are the best for bass and recording are the Grado SR80's and the Sony MDR7506... but I highly reccommend the Grado's, 3 other professional bass players in Seattle I know swear by them...

    Great thread. I bought a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M40f at the recommendation of a sales guy at Chuck Levin's in Maryland. Cool headphones but my bass never sounded right.

    Todd, I'll see if I can run down the Grado's. The price doesn't look too bad on those. Maybe if I can get decent sounding headphones I'll like my Pandora better.
