amazing and smart forum you have here!!
I've been digging here and around the web for several days now but i can't decide on what is the best choice for me.
I'm a bass player, arranger and composer and I want to start making commercial music and/or good sounding sketches at home.
I'm searching for an all around headphones for both recording and mixing at home and to take to studio sessions when recording bass, and of course bass practicing and working on my bass sound.
so what's the best flat, detailed, big sound-staged cans with good and deep bass (not hyped) ??
Inner Fidelity and Head Room graphs are often contradict each other so I try to use this amazing site with short demos of recorded headphones:
I know that the sound gets very changed through my crappy cheap speakers/headphones but I tried to distinguish the sound stamp and differences...
Up to now my options are these:
Audio-Technica ATH-M40FS - very cheap now, some guys said they're flat and mix worthy.
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, 250 ohms - bulky and pricey. not sure about their sound neutral responce
Sennheiser HD-280 PRO Headphones - a lot of guys love them but demo sound to bassy and closed
Sony MDR7506 - highly talked every forum (though also some differ)
Brainwavz HM5 - not enough info, seen 1 good review on the web. seem very bulky..
KRK KNS6400 - read a lot of reviews that they give a very good translation. I wonder how would be recording live bass with them (bass shy?)
budget is 150$ (I need to ship them outside USA)
I was leaning towards the krk 8400 but after seeing the graph and comparing demos I'm very confused and not sure it's the right one for my needs..
I know I'll need to learn any set i'll buy but I want to start from a good base point
I appreciate your help!
