Extreme Isolation Headphones – by Jeff Towne
There hasn’t been much variation in the conventional wisdom about the best
headphones for field recording over the years: Sony MDR-V6 headphones seemed to be in everyone’s kit, replaced only by the almost-identical EX-25s still sound good, and are
lighter and more compact, and therefore easier to pack. Either provides a
significant isolation from outside noise, without using electronic tricks,
and could be very useful tools for the field recordist.
