Good Headphones for composing/mixing electronic music.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.  I'm needing some expertise to help me make a good decision.



 



I write electronic music. If I was to sub-categorise, I would say it's fairly aggressive dance music (not dub step though). I would invest in decent monitors, but as I have plans in travelling in the future, I would like to get some decent headphones. The main purpose for me wanting to get new headphones is to assist me with getting a good mix when putting my music together, thus aiding me in production. Therefore I'm wanting something that is very honest, neutral and more "flat" in it's frequency response (my main priorities). 



 



I have been mainly looking at the Sennheiser hd600's and the hd650's. Given my style of music and main purpose for the headphones, are these appropriate models? Will they drive electronic music well? Of the two models what would be better for my needs? Lastly, are there any other models that may be better for what I want/need? 



Note: I wouldn't like to go too far north of the price range of the hd600/hd650s.



 



Thanks a heap. Any advice would be really appreciated.

They are both good headphones and neutral-ish so will do the job.

The Shure SRH 1840 is a nice neutral headphone for mixing.
