The closed-back DT-770 Pro is one of the most popular sets of headphones available. This 80 Ohm model will perform well on a wide range of studio and consumer devices and it provides great isolation for tracking vocals and other instruments.
The included 3-meter cable has a screw-on stereo jack adapter and the comfort and build quality is good, as you’d expect from a set of Beyers. Overall, the DT-770 Pro is a great choice as your first set of recording headphones.

As seen on YouTube, the SM7B is the industry standard for broadcasting, with excellent off-axis cancellation and overall speech intelligibility. However, with the right comination of preamp and compressor it will also serve as a great mic for vocal recording.
At the correct distance, the SM7B provides excellent resistance to sibilance and plosives and has integrated switches for low-end roll-off as well as mid-range boost, which helps to enhance different types of voices or sound sources.
