watch the levels in (cheap) headphones.
try to score a better (more expensive) pair of headphones.
you only have ONE set of ears.
speakers? whatever works for you mate. if you can work on it, and somewhere else it sounds like you intended it to sound.

Get some better headphones to start with, then monitors.
ATH M50's are very reasonably priced and get a lot of love around here.

Search around the low-end theory sub forum. There are many recommendations on there.

Phones are great to work on.
Long periods of headphone use can seriously damage your hearing though.
And I think people should always mix on monitor speakers. Phones can be deceiving.

If you're serious about what you do, get the best monitors possible in your price range.
