For monitors I have a pair of M-Audio BX5a's. When I'm recording and need
some isolation I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 pro headphones and for
double checking mixes I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 595 (open air)
headphones. Of course this all costs more than $100, but I'd consider it all
"budget" class and it doesn't suck.

Hi all,

can you recommend me some inexpensive but good small monitors and
headphones for home recording? No high aspirations yet, just for doing
various demos on my laptop. Admittedly, I don't know how to define
"good" here, I just need them to be perceptibly better than your =

desktop speakers and earbuds :) Similarly, I don't really know what
"inexpensive" is referring to the above, but as a wild guess, let=

start from $100. I prefer plain audio solutions, though will consider
USB ones (my Samsung Q70 has two US ports only, so that puts some
limitations).
