songcast_music_distribution_artistsWhen your goal is to sell your music online, every detail counts. From picking the perfect mic to learning about record labels, whether you’re at home or in the studio, you need to make sure that your final product is as strong as the work you’ve put into your music from step one.

Here at SongCast, we know that there’s a lot to keep track of when you’re recording that first track. And while we can’t be in the studio with you, we’ve come up with a list of three of this year’s best headphones on the market:

  • Sennheiser HD 280 PRO: Comfortable, large enough to fully cover the ears, and perfect for monitoring, the Sennheiser HD 280 PRO is an extremely cost effective recording headphone alternative. Though the design is nothing special, the lightweight 280 PRO excels in noise isolation and is priced at an incredible $100, making it one of our top picks for 2013.
  • Beats Executive: Launched in October 2012, the Beats Executive by Dr. Dre may be a slightly steeper option as far as price goes, but with a higher price point comes higher sound quality. Comfortable, compact, lightweight, and powerful, the Beats Executive headphones allow you to focus on your music, while actively canceling out any outside interruption. Priced at $300, Dre’s Beats Executive boasts the tagline, “You’ve earned them,” and at that price and that quality, we believe you certainly have.
  • Audio Technica M50: The Audio Technica M50 headphones are the perfect pair if you’re looking for great sound, comfort, and durability. Priced at $160, the M50 has the high quality functionality of a pair that could easily go for $300, thanks to its amazingly well-balanced sound.

Whether you’re looking for headphones priced middle of the road or you’re ready to splurge, our top three picks will get you even closer to achieving your recording dreams.
