I'm getting my first (audiophile?) headphones and I've been eyeing the ATH-MSR7 for a while now, and I'm planning to get them this saturday, but are there any better headphones out there around the price or slightly more than the price that are good for listening and audio production?



I've tested the ATH-MSR7 and I think the quality is pretty good (then again I've never really had good headphones before).



I've gotten a recommendation for the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro and the AKG 550 which I'm planning to try and test out tonight at jaben or stereo at vivocity (I live in Singapore). If you have any recommendations I'd love to hear it, thanks!


Also, I've been told I need a set of monitor speakers before looking for headphones otherwise mastering on headphones only would result in a weird sound stage, but I don't really have money for those and it's not likely I'd use them anywhere close to frequently or even just sometimes. What do you think? Thanks.
