Affordable Mixing Headphones that will reveal mid bass/muddy mixes

  1. jayhova123
    Hi Everyone.

    Long time lurker of this board and first time poster.

    I am currently mixing on a pair of ATH M50X (I know mixing on headphones but I am in a small apartment so I don't have a choice). I love the headphones but I find that my mixes often translate a little muddy/boomy on other playback devices which I think is a symptom of the ATH having a big bottom end which kind of makes everything sound good down there no matter if it actually is or not.

    So my question is what pair of headphones can I mix in conjunction with the M50 that will allow me to hear the potential for mud / mid bass issues? Looking to keep it under $300 if possible.

    Thanks for all your help!

    SoundMAGIC HP151 might be worth a look-see IMO.

    I would have thought the HP151 would have too much bass/treble, for audio production?
    But otherwise a good headphone, I have the HP200 :)
