One of the very first purchases I have made, I LOVE these AKG headphones. These closed-back headphones keep other room noises out, all you hear is your playback.
The DBX 286S is a fantastic preamp and processor. A great alternative to plugins or an Apollo Twin, especially if you are on a budget.
This little dog training clicker saves me so much time when narrating long form. I use it to mark mistakes, clicking it leaves a visual spike in the waveform to easily see when editing.
