    ok dont like using studio monitors to mix! I love headphones but I took a layoff from music and im trying to see whats new or old that I never used before and last time i did music I used the Sony DJ Remix headphones.

    I am looking for headphones that are really responsive and good price 100-140 usd.

    There is NO SUCH THING AS MIXING HEADPHONES. Your better off with cheap bookshelf speakers. Find an only home stereo amp at Goodwill or a yard sale and get something like these.

    or this for a little more.

    umm okayyy....i think any one who produces music is well aware there are no such thing as mixing head phones. =\

    WE ARE TALKING HEADPHONES WITH GREAT MIDS GREAT HIGHS AND GREAT BASS FOR UNDER $150.00

    I have heard ppl say dr.dre beats are like studiomonitors in your ear blah blah but if you can REALLY afford $400 dollar headphones you should should be grossin like 30-40k a year.

    People we are talking reliable head phones that will be used FOR MIXING hip hop beats all genres. so the head phone has to be bass responsive high and mids crisp ect..

    Beyer dt150 are a good pair of headphones. You should learn to love studio monitors

    master the mix I do have monitors cakewalk MA-15D by roland.

    like I said I wanna start using headphones because I found that using headphones gives you a more accurate sound in your "average" car!! now if you mix down with monitors it does sound pretty good in your neighborhood D-boy car that is fo sure.

    Mr.AK47

    Thanks man Im looking up both of those headphones now!!

    Mixing in headphones? "Average" car? What is an average car? What sonic standard has been set that automobile manufacturers are following while equipping new cars at the factory?

    What you might wanna consider doing is getting rid of the Edirols, and upgrade AT LEAST to a pair of Alesis M1 MkIIs, and you might develop a better relationship with monitors.

    If you think for a second that you're gonna get a mix that sounds halfway decent in ANY sound system, let alone in the "average" car, you really have no clue what all this is about.

    It's one thing to really not Know what you're talking about, it's another to make up stories about what you're trying to do in order to cover up the fact that you still don't got access to what you need to get decent sounds...I'm just sayin'.

    man . . . these dudes dont let up on no one . . . .

    understanding the relationship of how monitors/headphones translate is much more important than the brand that they are marked with.

    i say spend a decent amount of money on either (headphones/monitors) and take the time to learn them. How? Listening to TONS of music on whatever you purchase. Might even wanna google "critical listening" or "learning to listen", there's tons of books, articles and software to help you understand.

    me, personally, i use Beyerdynamic dt770's at home and some JBL LSR series at the studio.

    the first sc player has music ive recorded and mixed at the studio within the past year. *you have to stop the 2nd sc player, that plays my beats automatically.
