Is it better to use in ear monitors or headphones for studio recording? I've always liked iems for personal listening use, but I've never really seen anybody use them other than on stage. I always see over the head headphones being used in the studio.
Anybody have any suggestions for under $150 too? I like shure but don't know how good their 'under $300' category is. I'm looking at a pair of SCL2 headphones. I believe they also have a pair of SE115 for cheap, but from what i read, they aren't that great.
I do prefer them to be the kind that hook around your ear, but I guess over the head headphones don't come in that style :D I'd like something that also blocks out (not cancel) as much noise as possible, so I can listen to them at a reasonable to low volume because I have this terrible fear of going deaf.
