    What headphones would you guys recommend up to US100?
    BTW can you actually use headphones on the mixdown process too?
    Thanks

    I'll second Axel's opinion on NEVER EVER mixing with headphones. Try it : EQ a track on headphones to make it sound good, then try EQ-ing it from scratch (preferrably after some time, so your ears can rest), on monitors. Then listen to both EQ-ed tracks on every speaker set you own (car/hi-fi/anything...) and on other headphones then the ones you EQ-ed the track on. You'll see that the headphone EQ-ed track is way off, sonically speaking, on 90% of sound systems your hear it on (the 10% accounts for the possible coincidence of a bad sound system boosting/cutting, making the track sound good by accident).
