Headphones for studio recording - Page 2

post #16 of 22

I've had a few records out produced solely on the Sony MDR-7509HD which are becoming the new standard. They are closed and quite neutral with alot of detail. I programmed a whole sample cd with clicky clacky detailed sounds with them too. Speaking of them is actually making me want to purchase a new pair (as I broke them) and hold out on seeking out new ones which won't be so great in the studio (bought 2 new cans since registering yesterday lol:))

Also, you don't like your HD 650?

The MDR-7509HD's look good, quite pricey in the uk (around £190!) not really looking to spend that much, but will look a bit more into them and keep them in mind.


And my HD650's are great, but they leak alot, no good for recording

What about the 7506/v6 then? FWIR it's used in a lot of recording studios for tracking purposes, and it's much cheaper than the 7509.

You can also check into the KRK KNS-8400. It'd be perfect for this. It's extremely comfortable and even works well without an amp. It's new, so there is not a lot of reviews yet and costs about $150. It's my main portable headphone. It does need about 2-3 days of burn-in to tame it's piercing highs. After burn-in it's a totally non fatiguing sound signature. I actually prefer it over the SRH-840 which I compared to this a few days ago.

Anyone know how the AKG K 271 II would sound compared to the M50 and HD25 and the sony v6?

There are so many options for this type of headphone, I think i may need to buy them all from thomann.de and see which i think is best. o2smile.gif then send back the rest.

Have heard nothing but good things about the 271, though it's no bass monster. You might do a forum search on that one. I prefer the AKG sound signature over the v6 which can be really fatiguing. Good luck in your search.

the highly underrated Roland RH300 tbh. That or the Shure SRH840. You need something balanced yet can hear the microdetail.
