I have to use headphones for basic recordings of guitar, vocal..ETC: I can only use monitors at certain times due to were I'm living at the moment. I have to due a basic eq of the guitar, vocal,etc....thru the cans...then due a total eq and mix thru the monitors when I can. What I don't want, is an eq thats really..OFF....due to doing it thru the cans. What I see here on the site is most people are useing maybe 2 types of cans. Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro-80 or the Sennheiser HD 280 pro. I have also looked into the Sony MDR- 7509 HD...altho I can not find much info on that set. The Sennheiser "seems" to have a problem with the low end...meaning that you tend to bring up the bass....but when you go to monitors...it ends up to be a bass heavy recording. This is just comeing from what people are saying...NOT from my own EAR.... Everybody has a different "EAR" What I need is the right set of phones....that will come as close to a set of good monitors as possible. Any input on this would be a great help. Right now I'm leaning toward the Beryerdynamic stuff.
