So I got recruited by family to do some rough recording and I don't own a single closed headphone. I know the Sony V6 is the "standard", but how would the Beyerdynamic DT235s hold up? I just want to be able to hear the levels and check that the mix is okay. (Using a Tascam DR680 and its built in mic pres)

Here's a graph for the DT-235:

It might work, but it's mostly an on-ear headphone. It's fairly well balanced sounding. For $55 it's quite a good deal.
 
There is also the dirt cheap ATH-M30, which is decent.
 
One idea is to find a refurbished or used AKG K240 Studio for another $10-$20.
