I'm a looooooong time reader, first time poster all the way from Australia! I've been instructed recently by one of my mentors to get a pair of closed back headphones (max budget of $400) for when I'm mixing live bands. I'll be using the headphones with a MIDAS Pro 9 system and I also have the EAW PA and my Shure SE535 LTDs as additional reference sources. I've been doing quite a bit of research and I've been to a store to try out a few pairs of headphones. So far, I've tried:
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro
Shure SRH 840
Audio Technica ATH-M50
I'm most interested in the Shure, Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser headphones currently.
So the first question is, how does the Sennheiser HD 380 Pro and the HD 6 Mix compare to the list above?
The next question would be, are there any other headphones that I should consider?
and the last question is, which one would you buy if you were in this situation?
Thanks all for your opinions and sorry for all the questions
