Yes. Once I tried to mix in M50s. It didn't work. The bass doesn't translate to monitors at all.

 

I would say that mixing is best done with near field monitors I had the Mackie HR824's when i used to do mixing and far easier to get a nice mix on them than any headphone

I was just pointing out because he said in the OP that he can't use monitors at home.

I read that, just making a point that it is hard to mix on headphones unless you do it a LOT and know the weak points in your headphone frequency response curve

If porschephille really wants to hear everything in the mix maybe he should get the sennheiser HD 800 and a Schitt Lyr to drive them

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I ended up with a pair of dt 880s (250 ohm) and I think they will be just fine. I haven't burned them in, but my initial impression is they are very detailed. I just did a quick eq with the iTunes graph (who knows how accurate it is...or any graphic eq for that matter) to some reference tracks and I ended up cutting 4-8k by about 1dB and boosted 32 by 2dB and 64 by about .5dB. I like them...they sound so much better than the 240s I was using at the time. When my Meyer Sound small pa (two small tops and a dual 10 sub) come in next week, I will reevaluate with those excellent boxes as reference. Thanks again for your suggestions.

I think the dt880's are a fine choice, good to reference them like you did and Make adjustment again with your monitors

It's Alive!!!! I love the DT880s (thanks for the advice by the way), and use them all of the time. I now am in need of some closed cans that have a very similar signature that are closed. I have enjoyed the HD-25s, but they are a bit heavy on the low end for me, and they are bloody uncomfortable. I would love something circumaural. I do have to eat my words a bit, as I have tried the DT770's properly amplified (using my Apogee Duet) and they do sound pretty darn good. I still feel like I need to have a shelving filter pulling 125hZ and down by about 3dB or so. I would buy them, but I can't have an EQ in all of the signal chains through my various sound design programs. Any ideas? I have looked at the AKG K550s, but can't listen to them in person...I can only rely on frequency response graphs and recommendations. Thanks for all of your help.
