Greetings all, new to the forum, and already I have found it an incredibly valuable research tool for helping me choose headphones for producing music. My style is EBM/Industrial/Futurepop, very electronic and synthy... right now i'm trying to settle on a set of headphones for basic mixing. I'm not expecting to master and produce studio quality mixes, but budget, equipment, and room constraints force me to mix this way, so I'd like to get the best possible sound for under or about $250 So after much research I had JUST about settled on the AKG 240s... but when I looked at the AKG website under the "Professional Headphones" section, I noticed that the 240s (along with several other cans) were labeled "Studio" then there are the K702, these were labeled for "Monitoring, Mixing, Mastering" instead of studio... So what exactly is the difference between "studio" headphones and these K702s? They're available on amazon for right near my budget, except it appears I also have to purchase a headphone amp... Considering the limitations of my studio, would the benefits of the more expensive headphones be worth it? or would the AKGs be sufficient for mixing? I'm not really interested in any other headphones at this time, so please don't suggest alternate headphones, I will continue to research other options, but at this point I just want to know the difference between these two types of headphones, specifically with these two models... many thanks for your time!
