As someone who never feels comfortable on a shoot without a pair of headphones on, it’s obviously important to be able to hear the audio I’m gathering. One of the greatest downfalls of DSLRs is the lack of an easy to check your audio. Cinema5d posted Christian Sundsdal’s wonderful DIY audio monitoring solution. Using some very simple tools (headphone spliters, headphone amp, mic chords etc.) Sundsdal came up with an extremely usable and cheap ($37) solution.
