Headphoenes for mixing max 150 euro?
 
Any suggestions on headphones that are good for mixing and with which you might even have fun listening to regular music?

I got a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50, i think they sounds nice and are in your price range.

ATH M50 or KRK 8400.

I have the krk's and love them

ATH for me too..they are great!

yep. thats one of the ones i have come up with by googling to! i think ill order them and try them out then! seems that they are good for production as well as listening to music in your free time! are you using any eq qith them while mixing? i heared a few freqs are slightly pushed in these headphones!?
any other suggestions are still welcome tho!

Nope, just another vote for the ATH's

How about Sony MDR-v6. A blast from the past, which you can still buy, by the way. $100 USD.

Here is a nice graph showing the frequency responses of ATH, KRK 8400, and the MDR-v6. The Sennheisers are thrown in just to give you a reference of what more money might get you.

Edit: sorry, looks like my link is jacked up. I got the info from headphone.com. You can build the response graphs there.

thats a pretty cool site dude thank you!
i compared some freq graphs tho and the bayerdynamic dt 990 are VERY similar to the HD 800 and more linear than the ath, why would you still consider the ath better? of corse the dt 990 is half open or even open which is a big minus if your trying to record with it too.

and what about the akg 271 mkII?

I use the AKG k240's with a VRM Box.

I find I prefer the semi-open headphones for mixing (when I have to mix with headphones).

Adding Beyerdynamics DT770 as another contender. It's a bit above your set budget thou, but seems to be the winner wrt. to comfort.
