Need help buying headphones ranging from £100-£200($165-331 US dollars) to produce a good sound for producing music at home?

I'm looking to produce music and I've been told by friend to buy some studio headphones that produce a good sound and one that produces a true sound like how studio monitors produce a true sound as compared to hi if speakers which deliberately make things sound good.i want the headphones to be strong and comfortable because I always end up breaking the wires etc.if if the headphones look good I would appreciate it.ive heard good reviews about the audio technics ath m50 headphones and I was wondering if these would be good for what I want to do.

You'd be better off buying a set of monitors. The Equator D5 are a great choice.

The Audio Technica ATH-M50s have a "full' bass and recessed mids, so you might want to look into something else.

Hi,

 

I think Shure Srh-940 is a solid pick for mixing. Shure Srh-840 is also a good pick but have more punchy bass. Both provide good isolation and confort.

 

Beyerdynamic DT880 PRO 250 Ohms is probably the best pick under £200 if you are looking for a neutral response, but it needs extra amplification (Fiio E10 for example) and do not provide any isolation.

 

Best Luck!
