Videog­ra­phy is a whole area that includes many more small indus­tries, one of which is audio cor­rec­tion. With­out a sharp, high-qual­i­ty audio track, it is impos­si­ble to tell a sto­ry in video for­mat. This also applies to video blogs, where good sound is one of the fun­da­men­tal­ly impor­tant ele­ments. But per­fect sound is quite achiev­able, and for this you need not only record­ing equip­ment that can han­dle the load, but also good head­phones in which you will hear all the defects and not miss a sin­gle mis­take. If you think about it, high-qual­i­ty sound pro­cess­ing is more impor­tant than record­ing, because a lot can be cor­rect­ed dur­ing edit­ing.

So that you nev­er wor­ry about miss­ing sounds, we have cre­at­ed a selec­tion of head­phones that are ide­al for pro­cess­ing the audio track for video.

To begin with, it is worth not­ing what char­ac­ter­is­tics will be impor­tant for such head­phones. Var­i­ous indi­ca­tors will be indi­cat­ed in the para­me­ters, but not all of them are actu­al­ly impor­tant, so it is worth high­light­ing those that inter­est us the most.

Headphone type

Dif­fer­ent head­phones imply dif­fer­ent activ­i­ties. Some are best at play­ing music at dif­fer­ent fre­quen­cies, while oth­ers cre­ate an immer­sive effect for games and movies. But these effects fade into the back­ground when it comes to hear­ing the max­i­mum.

There­fore, atten­tion should be paid to head­phones, which are called “mon­i­tor”. They got the name pre­cise­ly because they are designed for pro­fes­sion­al work with sound, which means that their func­tion­al­i­ty is aimed pre­cise­ly at these tasks. Unlike head­phones, which block out ambi­ent sounds, mon­i­tor head­phones do not edit or block any­thing. Thus, they give the user the oppor­tu­ni­ty to hear the most real­is­tic sound. Of course, this is exact­ly the option that should be con­sid­ered for pro­fes­sion­al work. The good news is that there are a huge num­ber of mod­els among mon­i­tor head­phones, and they are avail­able on a par with oth­er options. So it will not be dif­fi­cult to choose at all if you know what exact­ly you expect from the mod­el that seems to be the most suit­able.


Com­fort is a fun­da­men­tal char­ac­ter­is­tic for any head­phones, and it is as impor­tant as it is sub­jec­tive. As with sports, leisure and music devices, you will be wear­ing head­phones for at least sev­er­al hours, so it is very impor­tant that they do not cause dis­com­fort and headaches. Since mon­i­tor head­phones are most­ly over­head, make sure that the cup com­plete­ly cov­ers the ear, and the pads are soft and do not press. There­fore, it is impor­tant to either know exact­ly what size suits you, or to be able to try on the head­phones in the store and return them if they seem uncom­fort­able to you.

Anoth­er point when it comes to con­ve­nience is the head­band. It should be loose enough, but firm­ly seat­ed. Most mod­els allow you to adjust the height of the head­band, but the width can be a prob­lem. Head­phones should not put pres­sure on the tem­ples and ears. Also make sure that the head­band is cov­ered with a soft mate­r­i­al. With pro­longed use, the dif­fer­ence will be espe­cial­ly notice­able.

Reproducible frequencies

In head­phones designed for lis­ten­ing to music, the fre­quen­cy is often writ­ten off as a less sig­nif­i­cant para­me­ter. This is quite log­i­cal, since the human ear, on aver­age, is capa­ble of rec­og­niz­ing 20 — 20,000 Hz. This para­me­ter nar­rows with age, so this range is quite stan­dard for most head­phones that claim to be of high qual­i­ty sound. How­ev­er, extra fre­quen­cies are nev­er super­flu­ous, and more pro­fes­sion­al mod­els are quite ready to offer from 10 Hz to 30,000 Hz. Even if you are not sure that you can hear some sounds, you should not wor­ry, this is quite nat­ur­al, but it is nev­er too late to play it safe. If you stick to the stan­dard, then your options are very wide, since almost every mon­i­tor mod­el is ready to repro­duce the clas­sic 20–20000 range. What you should not do is to choose head­phones with a low­er range. This is where the like­li­hood that you will miss impor­tant ele­ments will be extreme­ly high.

Open or closed headphones

Edit­ing video, or rather audio, involves choos­ing one of two types of head­phones — open-cup or closed-cup. The dif­fer­ence between them is described quite sim­ply: open bowls give a more volu­mi­nous, ambi­ent sound. They let in extra­ne­ous noise, so in some ways their sound is sim­i­lar to speak­ers.

Closed bowls are designed for those who pre­fer to focus on a spe­cif­ic sound stream. This works best when pro­cess­ing low fre­quen­cies. Both options are equal­ly suit­able for pro­cess­ing audio tracks, so the choice, as with many oth­er options, comes down entire­ly to per­son­al pref­er­ence. For those who are seri­ous about work­ing with sound, we rec­om­mend using both options alter­nate­ly and check­ing the results in order to have the most com­plete pic­ture of the final result.

Audio Technica ATH-M50x

One of the head­phone mod­els that are high­ly regard­ed by those who work with sound is the ATH-M50x. The large, closed-for­mat bowls are incred­i­bly com­fort­able for long-term use. The design pro­vides for their rota­tion by 90 degrees, for the most com­fort­able fit. The design is com­plete­ly designed for sound­proof­ing, and one of the spe­cial char­ac­ter­is­tics is the absence of sound prop­a­ga­tion to oth­ers. That is, no one around will hear what is hap­pen­ing in your head­phones. This is con­ve­nient for work­ing in the office, espe­cial­ly if there are sev­er­al peo­ple near­by work­ing on sound pro­cess­ing at the same time. Anoth­er fea­ture is the abil­i­ty to trans­late the sound into one ear, in order to care­ful­ly lis­ten to what you are work­ing with.

The design of the head­phones is fold­able, which allows you to take them with you even if you plan to work out­side your home or office. The fre­quen­cy range more than meets the require­ments of a pro­fes­sion­al, from 15 to 28,000 Hz will be more than enough to not miss any impor­tant sound.

AKG Acoustics K 702

If Audio-Tech­ni­ca offers the most afford­able, by pro­fes­sion­al stan­dards, high-per­for­mance head­phones, then AKG, as befits a com­pa­ny with a rich his­to­ry in the pro­duc­tion of audio prod­ucts, presents a more pre­mi­um, but also more seri­ous mod­el. The head­phone design itself is very rem­i­nis­cent of retro devices, plus it is equipped with an ana­log adapter. There­fore, even with­out tak­ing the head­phones in hand, you can already under­stand that we are talk­ing about a pro­fes­sion­al device.

Head­phones have closed-type bowls and do an excel­lent job of pro­cess­ing audio and video. Also, many users note the excel­lent accu­ra­cy of the AKG Acoustics K 702 in sound repro­duc­tion when pro­cess­ing videos from events and wed­dings. One of the fea­tures of these head­phones is an extend­ed fre­quen­cy range: from 10Hz to 39800Hz. Even if some of these fre­quen­cies are unrec­og­niz­able to a trained ear, it’s nice to know that man­u­fac­tur­ers care about your capa­bil­i­ties. The head­phones are about 2 times more expen­sive than the pre­vi­ous mod­el, but you know exact­ly what you pay for.

Sony MDR-7506

Among the bud­get options, you can also find the ide­al mod­el for sound pro­cess­ing. This is exact­ly what you can call the Sony MDR-7506 head­phones. The head­phones received a com­fort­able design with closed bowls. The bowls are very large and cov­ered with a com­fort­able arti­fi­cial mate­r­i­al. The soft large head­band received a cov­er­ing from an imi­ta­tion leather. The ear­phones fold into a more com­pact for­mat, mak­ing them great for trans­port­ing and work­ing out of the office. Sound repro­duc­tion is clear and high qual­i­ty. MDR-7506 is a wired head­phone and belongs to Sony’s pro­fes­sion­al head­phone series. The fre­quen­cy response range from 10 to 20,000 Hz cov­ers the nec­es­sary para­me­ters for audio pro­cess­ing. This is not to say that the head­phones have the most advanced fea­tures, but their most attrac­tive fea­ture is their afford­able price com­pared to many oth­er mod­els. The MDR-7506 is ide­al for begin­ner video­g­ra­phers and blog­gers.

Shure SRH145

Anoth­er option for bud­get head­phones was cre­at­ed by a com­pa­ny whose name is well known among audio pro­cess­ing spe­cial­ists. Shure is famous for mak­ing micro­phones and oth­er stage and stu­dio equip­ment, and head­phones are no excep­tion. Shure SRH145 received a unique rec­og­niz­able design in a futur­is­tic style. The spe­cif­ic shape of the bowls seems a lit­tle unusu­al, but in fact it does an excel­lent job of deliv­er­ing audio, plus it does not cause dis­com­fort. Closed cups fit com­fort­ably on the ear. The fre­quen­cy range of these head­phones is some­what nar­row­er than that of the oth­ers — from 25 to 18,000 Hz. As we men­tioned above, the full range that the ear can hear nar­rows with age, so the Shure SRH145’s capa­bil­i­ties fit well into the required para­me­ters. In addi­tion, this mod­el does well in oth­er respects, so, despite the fre­quen­cies, it can still be safe­ly rec­om­mend­ed to those who start work­ing with video and audio, or do it for a blog or for their own ama­teur inter­ests.

Marshall Monitor

Mar­shall is anoth­er well-known man­u­fac­tur­er of equip­ment for musi­cians and sound pro­duc­ers, so it is rea­son­able that among their prod­ucts there were also mon­i­tor head­phones with the telling name Mar­shall Mon­i­tor. The head­phones fea­ture a Mar­shall-inspired retro design and fold­able design. The wire switch­es between right and left bowl, and the bowls them­selves are large and cov­ered with soft arti­fi­cial leather. Mar­shall Mon­i­tors are great for repro­duc­ing sound in music and movies, and are great for more pro­fes­sion­al audio work. The fre­quen­cy range of 20 — 20,000 Hz is ful­ly con­sis­tent with the need for sound pro­cess­ing, and the head­phones are com­fort­able for long work and give a clear sur­round sound.

The Mar­shall Mon­i­tor is a great choice for those who work with audio tracks from con­certs and per­for­mances, but they will also cope with oth­er tasks.

A good pair of head­phones can help com­plete­ly cor­rect any audio record­ing issues, allow­ing you to get the best pos­si­ble final prod­uct.
