    I have been into video editing for awhile, it wa snothing professional of even close to good. It was more or less for my personal collection. But now I have an Canon HF R100 HD camcorder with external mic and headphone jack. 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.



    for monitoring audio though shooting video a noise-cancelling set of earphones would be an asset, as birdcat advised. I’ve have not utilized noise-cancelling ones but, myself. A different alternative for monitoring audio although shooting is an over the ear set which physically cover the ear, this helps to filter out extraneous noise and helps you monitor the audio that you are recording. Ideal Invest in hasSony MDR 570 LP for $25. Any set of phones that you are going to use for monitoring audio, regardless of whether while recording in the field or whilst editing on your laptop or computer, should really have as ‘flat’ a response as doable. This means that they never enhance bass or otherwiseaugment any frequency that you hear. this way what you are hearingis closeto what you are recording.For monitoring audio whilst editing, I use either Sony MDR-V150 (on the ear, wide frequency range, lengthy cord, $20-Ideal Acquire) or Koss K240 (more than the ear studio monitor, wide frequency,600 ohm model, paid $two.50 at flea industry!). I would suggest going to a retailer and attempting before you invest in. Listen for frequency variety (all-natural high, middle and low variety) and eliminating background sounds (if using for field recording). Excellent shooting.



    I just use one small ear bud.



    Sony has a pair of noise canceling headphones for $50 at Most effective Obtain – I’ve had these for years and they are very good for on camera monitoring as properly as plugged in to my Computer for editing. I did invest in a set of the Bose ear buds for my wife for $100 and she says they’re wonderful.



    I thank all of you for the wonderful help on this challenge. I have decided to g with Sony’s MDR-V150 simply because $20 isnt negative for a decent pair of headsets. I would go $50 for a set but have other props and so on to finance for my movie even with developing some its obtaining pricey. Grinner I would do the same but cant stand them things, dont know why either. Again thank you for all of your enable everyone.



    thanks for the information I definitely appreciate it. Been getting difficulties acquiring anything useful on google about it. I do want to apologize for my bad spelling on my very first post it was late and I was acquiring tired.



    Thank you also for the sound suggestions.So no head set with bass enhance for in the field or for editing.



    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.



    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.



    The Sony headphones are inexpensive (BestBuy $25-$50) and nicely worth it. We have four-five pairs of them lying about and they seem to tolerate all sorts of abuse and stay functional.
