I'm going to college soon and I need new headphones to use with my laptop. I'm following the course for music production, and I will of course have to work a lot with my laptop there, doing mixing and producing and similar things.
I have a pair of ATH-M50s that I use on the go but I really do not like them for producing at all. They're too coloured and really don't give an accurate representation of your mix.
Initially the Sony MDR-V6 seemed perfect for me, relatively cheap, durable, relatively flat sounding. But they're impossible to find in my country (the Netherlands) for less than €90, which is a whopping 50% price increase from the asking price on Amazon.com.
I tried searching for alternatives around that price, but all you seem to find these days in that price bracket are "DJ" headphones with "Extra Bass" for "Sick Beats". Personally, I don't want any of that.
So I was wondering if there was an alternative pair of headphones I haven't thought of yet that is:
1) 60-90 euros. I _can_ go higher, but don't necessarily want to if at all possible. I've already spent €150 on my ATH-M50s and €300 on my HD600s. (Too bad I can't take the HD600s with me)
3) Relatively flat sounding; good for production / studio work.
4) Drivable directly from a Macbook Pro.
I am willing to go for the MDR-V6 if there's nothing better suited for me, but I would like to explore all my options first.
