TASCAM TH-02 Studio Headphones - Closed Back
The EQ sensitivity and relatively flat frequency response (for headphones this cheap) of the TASCAM TH-02 provides a somewhat clear and balanced sound.
The natural highs, clear mid-range, and rich lows are what make them comparable to some of the more expensive alternatives.
Both left and right ear-cups have a full 90-degree rotation and their folding design allows for compact and easy transport. They are suitable for either studio use or casual listening to music.

A lot of users praised these headphones for their great audio quality and flat frequency response that is close to neutral. In their user reviews, many of them mentioned how great they are when used for recording vocals and monitoring. They find the folding and rotating ear cups make them portable enough to take anywhere. Their design looks sleek and very professional for the price. They provide adequate isolation for basic home recording and some users have mentioned their low end response was fairly decent as well.
A few users thought these headphones had a cheap build and don't feel durable enough. Their stock ear pads felt fairly uncomfortable to some after using them for a few hours, but that is often to be expected at the lower end of the price range.
Although we were recommending these, they came off our recommended list of cheap studio headphones on July 10 2018 because their ratings had fallen and higher rated options were available.
