The TASCAM TH-02 is an affordable but surprisingly good set of closed back headphones.

Featuring a foldable design, padded and stitched headband and a custom engineered driver and chamber, TASCAM spent over a year integrating tech and components that could compete with more expensive headphones.

Many users were surprised at the almost neutral frequency response and say they are great for monitoring during recording. The folding and rotating ear cups were also praised for giving the headphones great portability. On a minor note, aesthetics was also praised as they look like they belong in a higher price bracket.


Build quality and materials could be better according to some users, but doing this would raise the price. Others complained about the earpads being uncomfortable after a while.


These are a reasonable affordable pick for tracking and monitoring.

Although these were previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options which you can see in our guide to The Best Cheap Studio Headphones Under $100.
