    Default Headphone advice for video editing

    Hello friends.. I am a newbie in video editing. I am looking for budget headphones that don't be harsh on my ears.

    I'm using earphones that came with smartphone but that are not good in quality.

    Thanks.

    I just bought my second pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro headphones as my first pair finally got unusable after twenty years or so. The wiring and transducers still work, but the headband and cushions are shot. They're reasonably comfortable so I can wear them for fairly long sessions, and they're closed back so there's minimal sound leakage in or out. $99.

    Headphones in general are not accurate enough to be reliable for a final audio mix, but are okay for reference when editing video.

    Sennheiser HD25. industry-standard and affordable.

    With absolute respect for your opinion and your experience, in terms of audio quality for money at $150 I think the HD25 are not a contender. The HD25 are so behind in accuracy they are not even rated at rtings out of 30 Sennheiser models:

    I’ve spent a few hours talking with many music makers and mixers about headphones and I hadn’t heard mention of the HD25 until you brought them up. I think that’s because as DJ headphones they are made for extreme sound canceling in noisy environment, not sound accuracy.

    At that price point if you want to go with Sennheiser the best sound-quality models are 598 and 599, but those are still a step behind Beyerdynamic quality in that same price range.

    Sennhiser hd 25 have been the dj choice for 10 years. Mainly down to there noise isolating capabilities.
    Also in the U.K. You'll find they are the choice of many pro location sound recordist again, the sound isolation is a huge help.
    They were originally aimed at the location sound recording community.
    I'll be the first to admit they don't sound amazing .. my 20 Phillips headphone sound better. But out doors recording in noisy environments For the money I love em.
