only thing i really find funny with modern studios is they have millions(or even billions) of dollar budget and still manage to screw up the recording and do horrible mastering job in the process. not just music but with movies and even games nowadays. i see bedroom artists/producers making better recordings and better mastering work than even some of top hollywood studios. engineers back then in the studios before the loudness war were not only recording and mastering engineers but real audiophiles(the term audiophile in the modern world lost all meaning) in the golden era of audio who cared about how the job was done. now it doesn't matter due to the ipod and digital world. stuff is no longer recorded in real stereo anymore either.

i completley agree. i wonder...how the heck music could sound like this all the time. how representavies for govt can screw up so badly, how companies that you trust can just throw that trust away and etc etc.

I remember seeing Tim McIlrath from Rise Against with some ATH-M50s in a music video a while back.

It's funny when you think about it. No self-respecting producer would ever be seen using Beats in a studio and by that logic, why would they use them outside the studio. Dre probably has a nice pair on HD800s sitting in his house, or something similar.

TONS of Dubstep producers/DJs wear a sen hd25 model of some sort.  I guess you could call them famous.  They are to me anyway

Lyle Lovett and band with K240s (probably mk II - those look like silver rings)

Not really a household name, but I just found out that the favorite headphone of Stefan Poiss of Mind.In.A.Box is the K1000.

An older, but interesting thread that I want to contribute to here. Looks like Bradley Cooper likes his dt770s.
