Tools for the Podcast – Headphones

Just wanted to let you know a bit about the tools I am accumulating to do the podcast. This first thing is my headphones. I will post about other tools in the future, and you all probably know I use a Mac, but thought I would let you know about the headphones now because they are on sale!

Audio-Technica ATH-M20 Professional Studio Monitor Stereo HeadphonesI picked up the Audio-Technica ATH M20 Stereo Monitor Headphones about a week or two ago after reading so many reviews that I was going cross-eyed. I was looking to replace my last pair of headphone because the cat got hold of them. Yes, the cat. The cord was chewed into pieces and the headphone pads were ripped to shreds. So, after reading all the reviews and comparing all the prices, I picked up the Audio-Technica ATH M20 because the reviews were good, the quality seemed excellent, and truthfully – they looked large enough to fit my big head.

In addition to wear while I record The Social Media Monster podcast, I also wanted them to have good range response so I could use them to listen to music and other podcasts. And let me cut it short and just say, they have great quality and tone. Some people have said they are a little big. I don’t know if that is that case, but they fit me perfectly and have a nice padded head band area so they are comfortable against my less-than-hair-padded head. I also love the thicker coiled cord. It is substantial and seem not near as likely to give in to “wear and tear” as the cord on my last set of headphones did.
