If you weren't happy with the product you couldn't send them back to the company to get your money back. Unless rules are different in your country but headphones can't be sent back in the UK as it's bad health and safety using headphones somebody else has worn due to ear infections.

I think it is best to just get in ear phones, they really cut the outside sound, these are probably good, but IMO not as good as in ear.

in ear ones are good as well but I prefer headphones personally for guitar playing and recording.

Hi guys, I really have a proglem when it comes to practising guitar. I like to play quietly, so I can hear every mistake I make and so that I can focus on what I'm doing to 100%. The problem is that even with a closed door, playing through a line6 guitarport thingy with headphones, I can hear my father and his girlfriend talk, watch TV etc. Every now and then my father walks in on me playing and interrups etc.

I have a lot to do with school projects and regular school work which I need to do when I come home, I need to do them ASAP and NOT start to play guitar, because if I start to practise guitar... the other stuff I need to do won't be done.

That gives me about 1 hour of practising TOPS before they get home. If I want to practise then, I have to crank the volume on my headphones up so high that I can't hear them, but then it's hard for me to stay focused and to hear every mistake, because of the high volume.

I really need absolute silence from everything else when practising, and smallest interruption may demotivate me very much. Anyone know what to do?

This thing has made me practise from like 23:00 - 02:00 in some cases 03:00. That's not a healthy habit if school starts at 08:00...


I'm the same way, I need quiet even with tube amps. The only thing I could suggest is get old quick because for example when that happens here at home, gf or birds getting loud, or tv. I just start slapping people around until the message gets thru. Can you take on your old man? laugh.gif

I have played in the bathroom before when I wanted no external noise, some of us are weirdos like that. I like to concentrate on my tasks. As some have already adviced great headphones will do wonders but don't crank them. Try these but you're not going to hear anything so if the house is burning down..I hope you don't mind being crispy.

they're strange at first but man, they really work and you seriously won't hear anything else even with nothing on, they're noise cancelling. They have cheaper ones but you can always get a part time job (like I used to) just to get what you need and then flip the boss off and quit.
