    Help in recommending headphones for music production

    My first proper set of cans was the Technics RP-DH1200. I used these for DJing and for listening to music and really love how they sound with strong but not overpowering bass. Unfortunately, they suck in terms of durability as I'm on my 3rd pair now in 6 years (weak plastic points which a...
