I'm a big fan of sennheisers, but i will buy some pairs of beyerdynamics soon. I've ruined more Akg:s and Sony's than i remember and as they are difficult to repair nicely some of the drivers have ended up in construction worker types of earprotectors. Quite ugly but they sure can take a lot of beating. /T

Yeah, I have the DT770 's too.

I find I have problems with interpreting the lows

But nothing seems to be hidden

The more I use the Ultrasone 600s the more I like them, though it's too soon to tell how durable they are since I've only been using them a few times a week for the last several months.  My clients and university users are all pretty conscientiuos, too, so that may not apply to your situation.

But what phones should I have on hand for musicians who don't want to mess up their hair?  I'm serious; one of my regular singers wants something that is light and unobtrusive (if that's the word) and won't mess up her hair.  Still it'll need good isolation since she's overdubbing vocals to a track. Maybe some kind of in-ear monitor?  Confused

Anybody still using Sony MDR V6's?
I have a couple pair left over from the live humhead days that I'll throw on for tracking.

Have her put the phones on upside down, with the headband tucked under her chin.

Many thanks Harvey,

I've seen people do that but thought it looked awkward.  But if that's the best way, I'll ask her to try it.

Best regards,

Ross

I've been using 7506's for about two years for "can refs" while doing the odd mix, but the high end sizzle is just too inaccurate for getting anything you wont have to re-do, later.

I'm looking at Beyers.

Koss R80s for the band,
(AKG K240 sometimes for the drummer who likes open back),
singers usually like the hyped bass in the Sony MDR V600,
Grado SR60 or E7 in-ears for me,

for all the abuse studio cans take during tracking, I'm going with cheap cans from now on. I've had no complaints with the Koss R80s.

Just ordered (seconds ago) the More Me's on a whim but will probably go with the Grado SR325s if I ever do decide to do a headphone mix.............if they prove comfortable enough.

Your order is already boxed, labeled, and ready to out Monday morning, so you should have them by Wednesday.  

The Grados are hard for me to mix on - they make everything sound too good.  You turn a knob way up on the board and listen, then ya go, "Hmmm, that sounds good, too".

I traded a piece of crap Behringer 4 ch mixer for a pair of Audio technica AT-M40fs and I can say they sound pretty alright.

Also, the beyers sound better than the sonys to me.

I am using a behringer for the musicians but the click track is always leaking into drum microphones. I need something with better isolation. If anyone knows something better please let me know.

you can order the MoreMe headphones and try them for 30 days risk free.  If you don't like them, return them for a full refund.
