I'm looking for a pair of headphones for my home studio. The main use I'm going to give them is for monitoring, I also prefer a very plain response because I'd like to use them for mixing/mastering also. I'm a saxophone player so I need a very good isolation in order to avoid the sound of the sax in my ears (I do prefer to hear it from the mic). I was looking for Audio-Technica "M" series, which one is the best suited for my needs? Which one has the best price/performance relation? How do the AT headphones compares with Sennheiser and Sony headphones for this use? What about AKG?
I know the headphones are a very important piece in my studio equipment so I want to make the right decision. I think if I hear bad I play worse.
Thank you very much in advance.
