Since starting to create Rocksmith Customs, I’ve been using a pair of Sennheiser HDD455 headphones. They’re pretty old – must be over 20 years old now – and have one seriously annoying flaw. They keep falling off. I’ve just replaced them with a pair of Marshall Monitor headphones which are a major leap in comfort and sound quality.
The bass comes through really well, which is just what I need for writing customs. They’re light as a feather, stay on no matter how much head movement there is, and isolate any external sound perfectly. It does mean that I have to be aware of someone sneaking up behind me.
All in all, I’m really impressed with these headphones. I haven’t done a head to head with the Sony MDR-7506 headphones which I use for playing Rocksmith yet, but that’s a topic for another day.
