Great Sound with a Handy Single-ear Design!

Beyerdynamic's DT252 headphones are a great pick for both broadcast and studio applications. Thanks to their single-ear design, you can still hear the natural acoustics of your voice and what's going on the room - a feature many vocalists prefer, as it tends to improve intonation. Of course, the DT252 closed dynamic headphones also make great "cue" headphones for DJ applications. There's a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter included with the headphones, so you'll be able to use them wherever you need. Thick, comfortable padding ensure you can use your DT252s during long on-air or recording sessions.

Single-ear design works well for recording, broadcast, and DJ applications
The single-ear design of the Beyerdynamic DT252 headphones lends itself well to broadcast and DJ cueing applications.

Great Monitoring

I used this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I have always slipped one ear cup off when reading and finally got tired of having it behind me and the audio leakage. This really does a great job and provides me with a natural feeling when reading scripts for doing voice overs. I get a real sense of the sound.

the best their is

i used another brand for about 8 years. didn't dawn on me that i could get something this good. i find i get better on tune vocals using a one-sided ear-phone. comfortable and it does the job. this is the top of the line.

For singers who cannot sing in complete enclosure

I have bought this mono headphone for myself a few years ago because I have to hear my natural voice or I cannot pitch correctly. It works well for me to minimize music leakage into the vocal track. I am also surprised to find many singers asking to use this for their recording session. As far as I know, Beyerdynamic is the only brand making this sort of mono headphone. I cannot compare this to another manufacturer because I am not really hearing the full stereo reproduction. It is quite comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

Great for deaf-in-one-ear persons

I am deaf in one ear and this phone(s) is perfect for listening to the full spectrum of a recording when one ear is impaired and stereo is not an option. Quality, flat, sound with no appreciable bias. It looks a bit "plain Jane" when compared to modern (flashy) designs but it is a real winner sonically. Comfortable for long listening and ruggedly built. The Germans got this right. I'm surprised that there are not more similar products, especially considering the number of seniors with compromised hearing. Not just for DJs and studios; this is a must for one eared audiophiles.
