Hi, thought I'd open this thread back up because I am also a 2i2 owner who wants a balanced/flat, non-colored (timbrally) pair of cans for music production purposes, and as a dismiss-able priority, for listening to music. I have a similar budget as the original poster: $100 or less is preferred, but I can go $150. I don't need anything amazing, but I am hoping to get some that will accurately play bass (no emphasis) going down to 20hz, and then with a shallow roll-off.
I was hoping to get something stylish, but that's not necessary. Only if there are some good sounding, stylish reference headphones, i'd like to consider them.
I was thinking of Sony MDR 7510's because in an interview, Aphex Twin can be quoted, "well, they're not the best pair of headphones for listening to music but to write/mix on, i've never heard anything as good as those yet, and I've heard a lot of em, not all but a lot, most, so mabe better ones out there". I like listening to his music a lot too, so maybe that's a plus. Does anybody know from production experience about these?
I was really hoping to get a pair suited for my 2i2; would there be a pair that sounds particularly good with this particular interface/amp?
Otherwise, I'm considering the

Are they good for production? Do they offer a flat, uncolored response? Is the open-back design worth the cost of losing isolation? Will the open-back design bring a different listening experience?
I heard about Sennheisers. Haven't looked into those.
Looking for opinions from first-hand experience from producers, or if someone you know (who's a producer) had a pair they enjoyed.
Thanks a bunch
