best headphones for mixing
 
come on then, lets hear it...

Ive got a Beyer DT 770 Pro, really nice mids and detailed highs, a bit bass heavy so one would wanna check the mix on something else occasionally... Might get myself one of those new AKGs too, just to have an alternate pair.

how are your mixes translating into other environments with those?

Yeah they translate OK-ish (Im not the worlds greatest producer :p ) but the more listening options one has, the better.

Actually Im thinking of buying a REALLY REALLY CHEAP pair too, just to get an idea what 90% of the population hears when they listen to their music. :cool:

I use a pair of DT990s mainly although theyre on their last legs atm, but i find mixes translate a lot better it appears than the close back 770s which a friend of mine has. also use a pair of in ear Panasonics which are really good. Still, mixing is better on the old monitors if you ask me, just use headphones for referencing panning and seeing where everything is situated space wise. The problem i find tho is that when using something like 770s or the 990s you move the ear pieces even a small amount on your head and the mix can seem to change, the in ears dont have that problem

Valid points and detailed response thanks Jaydmf.. Message seems to be the best usage for phones is for panning and positioning reference..
NDK's response seems quite valid too. iPod earbuds may be the 21st century answer to the 'check it on the Auratone'.. lol

Sennheiser HD650's - mixes translate extremely well.

nickmoore 2nd July 2008 09:21 PM

What's people's opinions on the sony 7509's?

I was told they were the ones to get, but I'm sure (hence the thread) there is a lot of discussion and opinion around this!

I'm currently using Beyer DT 150s, they're without doubt the best I've used so far.

Sony MDR-7506 for me, (mainly for tracking).
