Status Audio CB-1 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones
The CB-1 appeared on our recommended list for Studio Headphones Under $100 from January 2020 until January 2021 when they had been out-ranked by other headphones.
The Status Audio CB-1 is a brand you've probably never heard of unless you crawl forums and online communites. It's a brand being sold directly on Amazon and while relatively affordable, sports several premium-grade features.
It has a cult following by studio engineers who need a big, chunky headphone for tracking and monitoring. Its 50mm Drivers put out big sound; uncommon at this price point.
The CB-1 is a cult favorite for a few reasons: It's affordable, has great sound quality for the price and is quite comfortable.
Get it if you plan to stock your studio with headphones (they offer a bulk discount program) or need a good reference headphone that definitely punches above its weight class.
