There's another problem with open: when used for monitoring while recording, they are much more likely to be picked up by a mic.

For any canucks that care and have a hard time finding a Grado dealer, you can get them here. They also carry Alessandro, Koss, Etymotic etc

Unfortunately, he misunderstood the reviews and constantly wore them at photography conference mixers.

Not yet still hunting- I least I know what I want. Closed back for recording sounds like the right stuff.
Thanks

Cable 3 m single-sided and 5 m coiled cable plug-in cable on headphones (mini-XLR connector)
Connector gold plated stereo mini jack
Adapter gold plated 1/8" to 1/4" screw-on adapter


It will be a standard 1/8" (portable devices) and come with a 1/4" adapter ( input for receivers, headphone amps etc) that you would screw on to the 1/8".
