I’ve had a pair of Sony wrap around headphones for the last 10 or 11 years. They aren’t the best, but they work. Unfortunately the soft foamy covers are starting to fall apart. I loaned them to a coworker who took them home (instead of leaving them at the office) so I had to use my little ear bud headphones from my mp3 player. I could not believe how bad everything sounded.
At work I plug into an old RP200 with my headphones so I don’t disturb anyone while I play on my lunch break. It works well for what I am doing and I like being able to play with different pseudo amp models and effects. It doesn’t sound great, but with the little ear buds, it was distractingly bad. I kept unplugging and plugging in my guitar because I thought there was something wrong with the connection. It was bad.
I’ve got my original headphones back, but in transit the already shredded foam covers became unusable. So do I try to track down new foam covers or spend about the same amount of money on new headphones? Or get better qualify headphones? Any suggestions?
