How do you make your mixes translate well to all listening environments?

Obviously one of the biggest challenges of getting a great mix is how well it translates everywhere. What are the tried and true techniques you've developed that help you know when it will translate well? Are there some that have come about more recently as people have moved to listening to music more on their phone speakers or with earbuds?

I think it all comes back to experience, and to knowing the speakers that we are using pretty intimately. We are not really changing our mixes to fit the environment of listeners.

Basics of good mixing will apply anywhere; the listeners are going to modify their opinion of their playback equipment, and not modify their opinion of the quality of a good mix.

In other words; if someone likes the way music sounds on Beats headphones, they should like the way any good mix sounds on them because they are normalized to that sound quality.
