    Hi

    I occasionally use headphones, I currently have set of Bose noise cancelling - which are great for music on my phone, but don't sound good on the AX III.

    Very trebly and harsh sounding.

    I'm guessing it's an impedance thing - so what are other people using? Or is there a magic setting for headphones I've missed?

    Thanks!

    Pete

    Love the Sennheiser HD 600. Industry standard, and sound as close to my studio monitors ( Eve 207), as possible. Very happy with sound quality and comfort.

    Depends on budget of course. I went through a few models - then I tried the Sennheiser HD800s......And had to have them
    Nothing come close as far as I am concerned, they are that good.
    Honestly the same as going from the Axe II to the Axe III
    More definition
    Far more depth
    Far more clarity and separation.

    They are brilliant, but expensive!

    The best sounding headphones I’ve used with the AxeFX have been the ones made by Blue, with the built-in amplifiers. Those were also recommended by Cliff, and they do sound great. The most comfortable for long sessions, have been the Beyer Dynamic GT 880s, I just bought a second pair of those for my practice room. You can wear those for hours and they allow your ears to breath so you never feel boxed in..

    Hope it helps!
