CHEAP Headphones design for transcription jobs?

#1
What are cheap recommendations on what headphones to use when working for a transcribing company? Headphones that do not focus on bass and beats. Just purely for vocals. I hope someone could help me.

I honestly think any cheap kind of headphones will do, but make sure it's a headphone and not earbuds. Not only can earbuds ruin your hearing over time, headphones are more capable of blocking outside noise, which would be perfect for a transcription job.

I've had a headphone gifted to me a few years back and it did a good job blocking out sound. I should have the box somewhere along and I'll see if I can provide a price tag. Wasn't really expensive, since it was only a Christmas gift, we always give cheap gifts on that day.

Agreed with this. Most current headphones are relatively cheap but I would also add another thing which is a replacable cord.
They tend to be a weak point on the headphones so its nice to be able to replace it.
You have to look for them though since most don't have it but 1 relatively cheap option that has it is of of the skullcandy series.
Or you could just use a headphone with bluetooth connection.

I would recommend JVC and Sony headphones because it has a quality but its not so expensive and it works good while you are doing transcription jobs.
