Headphones needed for community podcast studio.

The gangplank community podcasting studio is almost complete. We've recorded three shows (no, they aren't available yet) to test the waters, but there is one crucial piece missing:


Right now, the studio is set up to record four people, one of them being the engineer. And right now, only the engineer can monitor themselves when recording. That may not sound like a big deal, but remember that this is a COMMUNITY podcast studio. We often times have more people in the room than are in the recording session. Having each participant wear headphones allows them to focus on the RECORDED conversation and tune out the things around them.

So my fellow podcasters... care to help out a good cause? We need three sets of headphones. I'm sure that many of you have upgraded in recent years to better fitting, feeling, and sounding 'phones. Assuming you didn't trash your old ones, would you mind sending them our way? We don't need anything fancy and I don't expect anyone to rush out and drop $75 on some new ones. Though I'm not stopping those that do.

If you want to help, leave a comment below and make sure you enter your valid email address. It won't show up on the site (no spam). This way everyone can see when we've found three pairs and won't send me a dozen or so that won't get used. :)

Thanks in advance for your help. Now to go find a cheap four-channel headphone amp. :)


  1. I have an old pair of open back headphones I picked up at auction. They won't block out room noise, but they sound pretty good. They're yours if you want them.


  2. Thanks, Paul. I'll take 'em. You can get them to:

    Gangplank Studios
    290 E. El Prado
    Chandler, AZ 85225

    And you rock! One down, two more sets to go!

  3. Hey Evo, Goodwill is having a 50% off sale today. Found one Sony headset. Will keep looking around.
