I'm new to producing, and I am looking to purchase my first over-ear headphones to use in this process. I will attempt to give you guys a clear picture of what music I am looking to arrange, as well as my budget and restrictions to help narrow the search. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions that are provided!
Music style: "Trap" (Don't worry, I don't necessarily enjoy the in your face samples and stuff that characterizes the genre today. Basically you won't find me listening to Turn Down For What or anything like that). The artists that provide me the most inspiration include the likes of: Mr. Carmack, Samuel Truth, Esta, Dilla, Flying Lotus, etc. (I hope you've heard of some of these fellas)
Notes: I'm looking for headphones with an even mix, so that I can produce with tasteful leveling. I wear glasses most of the time, and will probably be sitting at the computer for multiple hours at a time, so comfort is a factor. I plan to purchase a Maschine Mikro as well as a simple 25-key MIDI key board in the near future so that I can get the show on the road, so if you have any tips or suggestions about those things, it would be appreciated as well.
This is my first post on Head-Fi, so I don't really know how this works or even if I'll receive a response, but I can't wait for your feedback! Thanks to all.
