Bottom line it seems like you think I will be able to monitor and mix my music with more clarity with the Neumann’s, right?
The Neumann's are designed to be used as a "studio monitors on your head".
And, like any set of monitors or headphones......... you have to learn how to use them when making music.
There is always a learning curve.
Basically, you can use any headphone or set of speakers to mix, create music, ...... you just have to learn about their deficits, and compensate.
The Neumann's let you build your song's sound from a very flat sonic landscape, unlike most "mix" headphones that promise "flat and neutral", but are never this at all.
Take something like the AKG 812s.
This is a quite expensive set of "studio headphones" that are completely inaccurate, especially regarding their buzz-saw, ice pick in the ear drums, treble.
So, if you own them, and try to mix, you have to Eq-Compensate for their horribly etched treble.
With the Neumann's, you are starting, with a basically flat Eq, and you work from there.......you finish a mix, you go and play it on your other headphones, your other speakers, in your car, on your boom-box.
You use all these to represent your music's sound, so that you can dial in HOW to use what you are using to mix and master.
