Looking for good headfones
February 12, 2010 03:27AM


my recordin room sounds like shite so i gotta do my beat makin n mixin with headfones....

At the min im using beyer dt100's but i find they dont have a good low end so when i get it soundin good on the headfones, it ends up being too bassy on everythin else.. Also got akg k-55's but they are the opposite, too bassy so im pushin the highs...

I googled some and seen some good reviews, but can anyone recommend some decent ones they've used?? Price say round the £150 to £200 mark?

Current mood:
sennheiser hd25... great for djing, i\'m not too sure if theyre good for the production side of things

also mo-k showed me his dr. dre cans and theyre very very nice.. pricey but really bloody good. The only downside to these, which others could see as an upside is that you need batteries to use them properly

Current mood:
even if your room is all wonky and not acoustically treated at all a decent pair of near-field monitors or regular hi-fi speakers will give you a more accurate perspective on your mix than headphones. instead of paying £200 on headphones spend a little more on krk rokit rp5s.

in regards to the dre beats headphones those are great (but overpriced) for listening and aren't really headphones you should use for mixing as they won't represent your music accurately. same with the ultrasones. they have a good reputation but that is based on them being used in conjunction with speakers. they are known to be extremely bass heavy, and a bit too pricey.

but if you are deadset on getting headphones then i recommend the hd25's like carnie said, or any of the *coughcough* "studio" headphones by akg or audio technica. don't be spending more than 150 on headphones if you're not using monitors (or even reference speakers) though because you will be just wasting money.

near-field monitors not played at "wake your neighbours" volume are fine for monitoring even without treatment. headphones should only be really used to reference your stuff or when your just making the beat. any decent hi-fi speakers with an amp and sub will be better than headphones for mixing.

mixing on headphones will give you an inaccurate perspective on your bass and you will not be able to hear phase issues at all.

hi-fi system

(sony mdrv300, very popular headphones. they go for around 30yoyos)

"studio" headphones.



ps skull candy headphones are for listening. not for monitoring.
