    I just bought some Grado SR80 headphones for my pc but I was thinking I could use them as audio monitors on my Canon XL1s videocamera as well.

    I want to know since they're open cans, when I use them as audio monitors on my videocamera will they do the job right? Or will they leak in a lot of sound that the mic doesn't/shouldn't be picking up?

    I'd imagine they'd work just fine, unless the microphone you are using is very close to the drivers on the headphones.
