I just bought a Pocket POD and I am looking for recommendations for a pair of headphones that have sturdy cords and good output. I'm using a pair that came with my smartphone (they were handy) and the volume is not very loud when I play through without effects. I'm not looking for expensive $200 versions, but I am willing to spend $50 if they are more durable than a cheap pair and sound good.

 

Thanks

Not sure how "loud" they will sound on a PP, but for the price the work fine for my MP3 players and Wii U controller.

Triryche - Thanks for the reply. My initial reason for the Pocket POD was hear my guitar while playing in a group, especially because I plug into a mixing board and we have 6 brass instruments. I find the volume of the Pocket POD not very loud until you add effects, which I don't always need or want...

In that situation, you my need a separate headphone amp with a set of closed headphones.

 

Have you tried just using an amp model with no other effects?

Also, make sure you Pocket Pod master volume is set to max. You can adjust this at powerup by holding down a certain pair of buttons. I can't remember exactly which buttons to hold down while powering up but the manual describes it. Powering up this way gives you access to a number of global parameters, including master volume.

I like standard ear buds like skull candy.  They block out a lot of outside sound.  I used to stand in front of the horns in comfort...  The problem is that you'll need a feed for everything you want to hear.  I use a personal monitor system.
