WAY more likely that it's the room than the headphones. I use open-air headphones when tracking scratch vocals, and there will be a tiny tiny echo but it's negligible.

Just go to the store and ask for that. If you're buying online, just type 'balanced cable' into the search and you'll see different options. Where are you planning on buying them?

You'll want to connect with balanced cables, something you probably don't already have. The interface is 1/4" out, and the monitors take XLR in. Go get balanced 1/4" male to XLR female, usually 3-5...

There's a HUGE difference. If the rokits are in your budget, you can pass right over the AV40s. They're the ABSOLUTE bottom level that anyone should monitor on. Rokits will last you a long time, mine...

Well, where is there a 1/4" out on the amp? That's probably the issue is that whatever you're using to get out of the amp isn't meant for this sort of recording application.

Good for live vocals, not so good for 'keeper' studio vocals. I run scratch vocals with mine all the time, though. People will disagree, like always, but I'd recommend against it.
