2.3 Monitors and Headphones

You can’t get a good mix on your audio projects if you are listening back on cheap computer speakers. High quality monitors and headphones will let you really hear what is going on. In this lesson you will learn why this is important and what to look for in a set of monitors and headphones.

Recommended Monitors
  • Behringer Truth B1031A: A lot of bang for the buck with this monitor! Keep in mind these are priced individually.
  • Yamaha HS8: A more refined and balanced sound with a great price.
Recommended Headphones
  • Monoprice 108323: One of my favorite headphones! Great performance at a fantastic price.
