What headphones do you use?

Post by vladimotor » Thu Mar 10, 2011 8:10 am

What headphones do you use?
My Sony MDR-7509 fell apart and i am having a dilemma whether i should just get the same or try something new, like perhaps Sennheiser HD380 pro or Ultrasone pro...
So what do you use?

i'm on my sixth pair of sony, and very happy with them, the ultrasone i can't bare, they sound to much ludness to me, i did a mix on the senhiser 250 and it sounded very nice, i guess the 380 should be even better

I use AKG K242 and AKG K-141 mkII. They're ok I guess, but I prefer using monitors whenever I can.

I've got Sennheiser HD25s.

Mostly bought them for DJing and I use them a lot just for listening too, but I find they're decent for producing too, if something sounds good on both them and my speakers (I tend to go between the two when producing) then I'm generally on the right path. They're not purpose-made "studio headphones" but I can't justify buying another pair just for that.

AKG240 for monitoring - by far the most comfortable, but bass sounds odd.
AKG271 used by anyone doing vocal/accoustic recording, else use them for monitoring - bass sounds more normal, but isnt as deep as the 240, also very comfortable.
AKG181DJ for DJ/Live, but they are also by far the best for assessing bass/subbass levels and accuracy - even better then my studio monitors. Not comfortable for extended mix wearing though.
Nothing to see here - move along!

Sony MDR-7506.

The thing is there are better headphones, but I used to track a lot of drummers so we used them to track with as they have lots of output. I try other ones from time to time but I am so used to the Sony's I just stick with them.
