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. September 26, 2016 at 9:50 pm #3088 Matthew 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. September 26, 2016 at 9:50 pm #3089 Kayla 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. September 26, 2016 at 9:50 pm #3090 Alyssa I thank all of you for the fantastic assistance on this concern. I have decided to g with Sony’s MDR-V150 because $20 isnt bad for a decent pair of headsets. I would go $50 for a set but have other props and so on to finance for my film even with developing some its obtaining high priced. Grinner I would do the identical but cant stand them things, dont know why either. Once more thank you for all of your assistance everyone.

September 26, 2016 at 9:51 pm #3092 Max for monitoring audio while shooting video a noise-cancelling set of earphones would be an asset, as birdcat recommended. I’ve haven’t used noise-cancelling ones but, myself. A further option for monitoring audio when shooting is an over the ear set which physically cover the ear, this assists to filter out extraneous noise and aids you monitor the audio that you are recording. Best Buy hasSony MDR 570 LP for $25. Any set of phones that you are going to use for monitoring audio, whether even though recording in the field or though editing on your laptop or computer, need to have as ‘flat’ a response as possible. This signifies that they never increase bass or otherwiseaugment any frequency that you hear. this way what you are hearingis closeto what you are recording.For monitoring audio while editing, I use either Sony MDR-V150 (on the ear, wide frequency variety, long cord, $20-Ideal Get) or Koss K240 (over the ear studio monitor, wide frequency,600 ohm model, paid $two.50 at flea industry!). I would recommend going to a retailer and attempting before you obtain. Listen for frequency range (all-natural higher, middle and low variety) and eliminating background sounds (if working with for field recording). Excellent shooting.
