OK folks, I hope I don't sound too ignorant here, but I want to know what you think about something. I have a very small room 11' X 11' for mixing. I have had a hard time getting the EQ to translate to other systems. I have no problem with levels and the basics, but the EQ ain't happening. Part of this could be that I haven't learned the room, and am not the most experienced person on this site. I have decided to try using accurate headphones to get he EQ right before tackling the other aspects of mixing. I will continue to try to treat the room a bit better but wonder if this won't help me. I ordered a set of Etymotic phones which have gotten rave great reviews on some of the audiophile sites as being very accurate. I know that phones are not good for mixing since the sound needs to interact with 'air' to get a true mix. However, given my stated problems, do you think this will help or hurt my situation (if I'm only using them for EQing). Anybody else out there use phones for this reason? Anybody have experience or thoughts on the Etymotics? Just wondering. Thanks.
