iv been on the hunt for a good studio monitoring headphone that i can use for producing/mixing, the occasional dj, and just normal everyday listening.
my budget is $250 ebay/amazon prices.
the main contenders i have in mind are...
- Ultrasone Pro 750 - just 30 mins ago i was set on these. everyone told me they are great and pretty flat. until i watched this video that tested the 900's and they didn't seem so flat. in fact one of Ultrasone's HFI phones tested to be more flat. this worries me. also the frequency graph doesn't look good for these..
- Denon AH D2000 - yesterday i was set on these until everyone on here told me they were not going to be good or flat enough to produce with. but the same video as i mentioned before tested these to actually be very flat with a slight boost in the lower end. but the lower end went all the way down to 20hz at a clean sine wave, where every other headphone distorted at that point. impressive.
- Shure SRH940 - i don't know much about these but they must be good right? how is the bass on these?
here's the first of the testing video's. the last bit of tests are the better ones...this guy is a sound engineer and seems to really like the Denon AH D2000's. so maybe some of you are too quick to say its not for studio use. you have to search for part 5 the last bit of testing.
