Am I supposed to be using an EARPHONE for monitoring my audio


May 8, 2015
I'm using Samsung Earphones to listen to what I'm saying while I'm speaking. I have a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2nd Gen, and I plug my samsung earphone into the interface's direct monitoring jack so that I can hear myself.

I sound really good when I'm monitoring and listening to what i speak. But when i playback the recorded audio it sounds slight off and different. Is it because I'm supposed to be wearing headphones and not earphones?

If headphones, then what headphones do you suggest for monitoring my voice while I'm talking to my mic?

My mic: Audio Technica atr2100
