    What headphones do you use and what are they best for?

    I'm not a DJ. I'm not even a "true" musician. However, I do use my Korg MS2000 and Pro Tools quite often. I've got some nice Yamaha monitors, too, but I think it is time to use some headphones for late night sessions and for all-around use with my computer. I actually spend more time designing web pages than making music...but it's close to 50/50.

    Anyway, I have a hard time using headphones. I have sensitive hearing. I especially have problems wearing headphones if they are cheap. Most headphones I can only wear for about 15mins. I want some headphones I could wear for hours.

    Now, I'm not out looking for a $200+ set of headphones, but I do want some quality and comfort. What would you suggest?

    for producing I use some AKGs I think they were on the cheaper side - but they sound great

    Sennheiser HD590. Very comfortable, sound great. Open-backed though so you wouldn't be able to use them for DJing (if that's what you want).

    A word of warning - it's really, really easy to damage your hearing with headphones. Watch your levels all the time.

    i use sennheiser hd 25sp headphones for studio work and djing. lovely flat response, comfy as hell and closed back too.
    also use sony hdr d77 (eggshells). absoloutly fantastic but need to be treated gently. tend to use them with my minidisc on the bus
