Headphone Recommendations?
 
Hey, forum!

I'm thinking of buying some really good headphones.
I'll be using them for mixing and recording.

I don't really have a budget either.

Just wanna know if anyone has some good recommendations.

Thanks!

Sony MDR-7506 without a doubt!!

Iv had mine for around a year and there really good, iv gave mine a bit of a beatin but u would never kno, they still look n sound as good as the day i got them, if a truck ran over mine tomorrow i would have no problem buyin some new ones!! Im not sure if ur from the US or the UK but the prices are not that much different anyway between $80-$120 n £80-£120.

Final thought of the day: Go buy some u wont be disappointed!!

I recommend Beyerdynamic's DT series.

I vote for Sony MDR-7506 too :)

Great headphones, great price (but it's not about the price, they just are really good)

What ever you decide to buy don't get them online because there are tons of fakes going around. I advise you to go to your music store and test them out and decide for yourself which you like best

My philosophy on studio headphones has changed over the past few years.

I have a pair of quality studio monitors, and I always felt obligated to use "monitor" style headphones for mixing late at night. I used to use the Sony MDR-7506s too, classic headphones almost as ubiquitous as the Shure SM58 mic, although in my opinion they work better for field recording/production mixing than for music mixing.

Now, instead of monitor headphones I'm using decent "consumer" headphones. They certainly aren't flat monitor headphones, but it doesn't take long to learn how to mix with them and they are a lot more fun to listen to, and less fatiguing as well. During the day when I blast my new mix on the monitors, I only need to make very minor tweaks.

About buying online, you should be safe if you pick a good shop. Check J&R, good prices too. Here's the 7506:

I've also heard very good things about the AKG monitor headphones, as an alternative to Sony.

The ones I mix with are the Audio-Technica ATH-A700:

Highly recommend the Ultimate Ears in-ear monitor range. I have the UE-10's, which I think they just replaced with the new UE-11's. Very comfortable, moulded to your ear. I often will have them in all day without even noticing. No sweaty ears or weight like a pair of cans. Excellent sound, the only headphones I've used that I can get actual sound design work done and not have it need major overhauls once back in the studio. I work in the field and on the go quite a bit and these turned out to be one of the best investments I've ever made. Definitely check them out: http://ultimateears.com/en-us/products/custom
