Search the forums and you'll find tons of headphone info. Read it all and buy a Sennheiser HD600 :) :wave:

Thanks. After reading both relavant threads I could find with the search I think it is either Sony MDR 7506 or Sennheiser HD600, depending on which my favorite dealer has, how they compare to my listening, and how much my banker allows me to spend. Robert

Headphones are for TRACKING, but are useful for checking an important mix about 10 minutes per 4 hour block. I'm sorry I've got a dead batrtery AND a flat tire, but it's STILL the TRUTH.

The ones I use are SONY -7506's and Fostex T-20's and they have a pair of has a new model out # ????? which are GREAT also. ALL which work BETTER than Spell-Check on this Web Site. Good Luck

The sony's are great for monitoring when doing overdubs, but definitely not good for mixing, as they are very fatiguing. I totally agree with the poster above, 15 minutes every 4 hrs tops. Headphone mixing is quickly fatuguing, and inaccurate. get yourself a mid line set of monitors and save your hearing.

Hope this is helpful.
