That should work fairly well, in fact, if the control room is big enough it is my preferred option for louder, faster stuff.

Room size is a big factor.

However, every man and their dog, tracks vocals in a silent room or booth, with cans, and for good reason.

Cool, thank you for the input - I appreciate the tip on the microphone as well. It's good to know that it is a preferred method in certain situations by another - and you have been calculated about it. By happenstance I think I came up with a good recording (out of necessity - two headphones going out) My bandmate looked at me like I had two heads when I suggested we try it
