Last night I tried playing with headphones because it was very late and didn't want to wake up the family. I don't have a good pair for guitar playing yet so I grabbed the cheap little Logitech headset on my PC and used that on my 15 watt Marshall MG
series amp! I was blown away! I'm going to have to buy a decent noise cancelling headphone now - any recommendations? on brand/model good for guitar playing?
Also, why does the amp by itself not sound as good as it does with cheap PC headphones on? Maybe its a brain perception thing going though both ears at the same level? Or maybe its my living room? The amp is sitting in a carpeted room in the corner "hole" surrounded between two couch ends. Maybe the true amp sound is being absorbed by all that, deadening the sound? In the headphones everything sounded so full and alive. It made me really get into my playing which sort of sounds dull sound quality wise with the amp alone. That is why I've been on my little tone quest journey to improve the quality of guitar sound!
