The best headphones for mixing are ones whereby you can hear all frequencies evenly and with no coloration .

You want phones with a flat response.,not phones which are hyped in certain frequencies,otherwise you are missing the point.

I've used Sennheiser, Sony, Beyer, Grado and AKG. My weapons of choice for the last year or so have been AKG K-701. I find them to be flat on frequency response (they go low), stereo image is as good as headphones can get and they are a bliss to wear in your head with cool velour padding and leather band.

That said, I've also enjoyed making beats with my Sennheiser HD-25. I mainly use them for DJing, but sometimes when I'm beating the **** out of my keyboard I wan't the headphones to beat **** out of eardrums and HD-25 can do that.

And now.. after all, I wouldn't mix headphones. Only for checking the reverb/delay etc. settings and so on.

You won't return them lol...
I have those SONY V600s for about 7 years now. They are mixing workhorses IMO, but I wouldn't call em a dedicated mixing phone. For me the perfect combination is to crosscheck those SONYs with the HD600s during mixing. The SONYs have a little harshness in the mid to high band, if there's a problem with your mix's transients, they will let you know. You hear all defects thru those things. If you can just hear the low end and some harmonics from the bass, you're good. With the HD600s the bass is way more apparent, but you know when it's too loud or not. Everything above 300 hz translates well on the HDs imo. If it sounds good on both, it should translate.

But whatever phones you have, you should probably stick to 1-2 pairs and get used to how they translate. After a few years, you just know what to expect.

I have AKG 601. They are almost as flat frequency wise as the 701, but cost less, at around $250

It is common wisdom to use half closed headphones when mixing, as closed one tend to boost the bass response. Akg 601/701 are flat rsponding,highly detailed, confortable, and don't cost much compare to similar quality powered monitor, so maybe you should'nt cut on the cost there and get really good headphones that you will like to work with.

You have to consider the fact that if you take a closed haedphone , your hear will get tired quicker than with an open or semi open headphone ...

closed are good for takes and recording or to isolate from noise , if your place is silent go with the dt 990 PRO , you will not believe your hears!!

i'm telolin ya 7506 &7509 are good for singers and rappers to spit on the mic but for serious mixing and spacialisation ,the beyer rules !
I love

Those headphones..

Seriously - Try them on, even when they're not plugged in it's sex on your EARS. Kinda like that Family Guy episode :-D

But no really, try out the DT 990's.

I like my Ultrasone PROline 2500's... going back and forth between them and my Dynaudio AIR6/AIR Base 12 setup always gets me where I need to be...

I have a pair of 7506's as well... need new ear cushions

Piedpiper, Do you actually use these or are you going by word of mouth? The reviews on Amazon look really promising which is why I am asking if you use them. I dont want to fall into the hype . The review by Kenton D. Shade on Amazon is very convincing though. He gave a lot of detailed info which is why I am getting sucked (suckered) in. LOL

Do the DT770s require an amp? or will it function on my ipod/pc with no problem?

you can get these in 250 and 80 ohms, which is better? what is the difference?

the best are 250 but you will need a good amplified source so for the ipod forget it and go for the 80 ......

Simply the G.O.A.T of mixing headphones, get them and thank me here:

MDR-V600 | Studio Monitor Series Stereo Headphones | Sony | SonyStyle USA


I have the V700's and they've never done me any wrong. Excellent isolation considering the material and not being externally powered through batteries,etc. These things are tanks, never have to think twice when I shove them in my bag or drop them, still perform precisely as they did when I bought them 4 years ago at the exact same price as you mentioned they still remain. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a decent, reliable, cost effective set of cans.

I've been using the Sennheiser hd 212 pro for about 2 years now. I'm still a newb to the mixing scene but I'm not that dissapointed with them, I was wondering the other day if I should upgrade to a newer pair but I'll see.

Hey, Im New to this and Live in Argentina (that equals to not being able to get most headphones) The sony v600 are not available here. But I can get the v700 and the v900. Im about to go with the 900s but had to ask since they are almost twice the price. They do have much more range but they seem more fragile also.

any thoughts?
