Best Headphones for Mixing and Mastering?


New member
Hey all,

So due to my limitations on being able to acoustically treat my mixing area in my apartment i am going to invest in some open back headphones. I KNOW ITS NOT THE IDEAL WAY OF MIXING (I just want to emphasize that) however I would like some opinions on headphones that will translate well and are the best for mixing and mastering.essay writer

I’m looking to spend $400-$500.

Btw I’m make rap music and also practice on other genres of music when mixing.

Any advise right now would be appreciated!

Independent of the headphones you have, it's always good monitors + headphones, more monitors than headphones and at great levels without being so loud. I mix everything by 68-73 dB maximum my results are good so?! Independent of the headphones you choose you'll have to know them like your monitors listening to consagrated songs enjoyed by the crowd ;] it's a good technique, but even using this technique, sometimes or a lot of them the references are not ideal, for this reason listen to at least 9 songs from different genres.
