Is the most balanced headphone the way to go? Or a headphone more suited for a specific genre? I am using these primarily for EDM.
At first I was thinking the most balanced and flat headphone was the way to go, but then i got to thinking. Most people out there have audio systems/speakers/etc that are bass enhanced in one way or another. So if I produce with a flat headphone I am likely to go heavier on the low frequencies in the mastering process. Then when the tracks are played back on those bass enhanced systems, wouldn't the tracks then likely have too much bass? My first thoughts were the PRO 900's but then I started thinking since those are very bass enhanced then I might not add enough bass and then the tracks would be bass weak on a lot of systems.
Just curious on your guy's thoughts. I have tried many of the most popular expensive headphones out there so I know what sounds good for listening pleasure, etc. What I'm looking for are the best options for producing and final sound mastering. So unforgiving and completely analytical are key. But what else? Should they be flat? Or? I do want them to be closed, mainly for concentration reasons.
