    as a recording engineer, i have to ask: why do we have 4 talking heads in the same room WEARING HEADPHONES?


    is it supposed to make them look important?

    it certainly doesn't accomplish anything in the audio realm.

    Thanks for the comment. This is video from our radio show taping --- the headphones are essential in allowing our on-air analysts to hear how loud they are in relation to others and to hear when/if they're off-mic. Our use of headphones has nothing to do with looking important and everything to do with producing high-quality audio for our radio show and podcast. Thanks for watching/listening.

    Hi Mac,

    thanks for the response. i was also contacted by Chris via email. here's my response and his explanation:

    thanks for the reply, Chris.

    the next logical question would be why use $3000 worth of RE-20's (that what they look like, although the video's pretty small) that aren't doing the job when for less than half of ONE of those 4 SM-58's would work fine?

    sure, they're a radio show standard, but you're not on radio...

    Hi Bob,

    I saw your comment on and figured I'd just email you directly.

    The reason we're all wearing headphones in the studio is because the mics we use for our nationally-syndicated radio show are pretty sensitive. Thus, if we turn our heads while we're talking to look at one another (as we do from time to time), the audio level drops significantly. The producer and engineer of our radio show prefer we wear the headphones so that we know when our levels drop.

    Left to our own devices, yes we would probably not wear the headphones because we can all hear each other just fine in the studio. But we're doing it so that the hundreds of thousands of people who listen to our radio show each week get some decent audio quality.

    Anyway, I hope that explains things. Heaven knows wearing headphones doesn't make us look more important. :-)

    Sorry if my email didn't clarify this point Bob, but let me try again. :-)

    Hard as it may be for some to believe, Motley Fool Money really is a nationally-syndicated radio show.
