...and if so, what kind?
Bass, with the Vox Bass headset and ....
via Bass simulator then into PC for recording.
Mrs 41144 will put up with guitar amp playing in the house but a booming bass is too much to ask for .
I was looking at this thread a day ago:
Haven't come to any conclusion myself, but I bought a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro some years ago for using with a PJB Bass Buddy and have been slightly unimpressed. Good for recorded music, but nothing special for bass playing.
I've always found PJB gear to be excellent so I've been thinking about these, though there may be concerns about durability:
Mrs Words has the same reservations about bass as Mrs 41144. Strange isn't it.
Good ole DT 770 Studio 8 ohm.
Audio Technica ATH-M2X
I feed my bass and a desktop audio out into my Boss ME50B for practicing with headphones, but I don’t particularly care about the headphones much beyond “not earbuds”. Yet.
I use the Sennheiser HD280 Pro for silent recording only.
Audio Technica ATH-M50x
AKG K240 for late night playing at home.
DT 770 Pro 80ohms - Practice, recording and creating patches in my Line 6 Helix.
Westone AM Pro 30 (IEM) - Refining Helix patches and playing live.
Also a fan of the HD280 Pro for recording. I don't trust mixing on them, but for recording and casual listening, they're very good, and they're affordable.
For quiet practice, I use Sony MDR-7506 with my Yamaha HDR100HD modeling amp.
Yes. Palmer Pocket Amp Mk2 with AKG K240.
Edit: Guitar, didn't notice it's Bass place
Beyerdynamic DT880. They aren’t the best sounding in the world, but they give a good picture of low end. They’ve helped me a lot with mixes with checking low end content. I prefer to send the amp sim through studio monitors when I can’t practice too loud though.
Edit, wrong post
I would play through headphones, but I've rarely heard a good sounding signal from most headphone jacks. The best representation of tone I've heard through a headphone jack was on a Vox Tonelab LE. Good signal on that one.
I never mix through headphones. (I thought that was a no-no!)
for stuff below 100hz it’s essential to check some things. It can also help with not going too ham on stereo imaging. A good tool in the kit to have. An 8 inch monitor or a poorly placed sub can mess you up way harder. I knew a guy who had like 8-10 grand worth of rack stuff, Adam monitors, who refused to use headphones. Needless to say, his mixes sounded like garbage on anything that wasn’t prosumer monitor quality or better.
Our band uses Shure SE215-CL earphones.
Open-back AKGs, I forget the model, for playing at home.
My son likes to be able to hear what I'm playing, my wife likes to not have to hear the amplifier.
