I'll be buying studio headphones to record audiobooks: a flat, revealing midrange is thus my priority. The headphones should be closed or at least semi-closed, to prevent leakage into the microphone during tracking. I already own a pair of Etymōtic HF5, but they're fidgety to put in and keep in place, so will be more useful for mixing than tracking.
I'm already sold on the T50RP (and, should I like them enough, will look into Thunderpants). I've been considering the K271 MK II and SRH440 as complement. If you've got any comparative experience between these two headphones, including their comfort for long-term wear, please chime in!
