You can see my list of cans in my signature, but I'm wanting a pair that I can use specifically for music production. My music making will include using electronic sounds, but I am very keen to have some headphones with accuracy and transparency for recording and mixing/mastering orchestral/acoustic instruments as well. Accuracy and good frequency response is going to be key for me. I bought a vintage pair of AKG K240DF recently, and despite their nice midrange presentation, I wouldn't be happy with using them for production duties with their lack of bass response. I do have a number of nice headphones in my collection, but as you may see, they are far from neutral and probably not the best for making music with. Am I wrong? Are any of them appropriate for that task? If not, I've narrowed my list down to the mentioned 3 headphones that may just fit the bill. Have I missed any other glaringly obvious choices? These are all around the same sort of price for me here.
Beyerdynamic DT250 - £140
SoundMAGIC HP100 - £160
German Maestro GMP 8.35D - £160
Here's hoping some of you may have experience of these cans and may even be able to compare pros and cons. I'd be prepared to sell my AKGs towards funding these. Am I on the right track with my choices?
Many thanks in advance!
