["I started with a laptop and headphones, but I have expanded to a studio set-up that I’m pretty happy with. A pretty high-tier PC, a NI Komplete audio interface, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones, a set of KRK studio monitors, obligatory two monitor screens not to feel limited, and an Oxygen 61 midi keyboard to speed things up."](http://kmag.uk/2014/09/17/xilent-guest-mix/)more
Bought the ones with a 32ohm impedance. They're great headphones but too bassy to produce on. Putting them up for sale therefore: http://www.ebay.com/itm/151447530881?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
I was looking for a good all-around studio/mixing/casual listening headphone set without breaking the bank, and initially I was angling for the Audio Technica ATH-M50X or the Sennheiser HD-380, both which sound excellent, but after trying them on I noticed they clamped on pretty hard and I could tell that they would cause ear fatigue, which drives me crazy. These solve that problem and are possibly the most comfortable set I have ever owned (maybe tied with the KRK KNS 8400), and they sound just as good as the aforementioned sets, if not better. A little pricey, but arguably the best you can do without venturing into way more expensive open-back headphone territory. Note that they CAN be driven by a mobile device, though to be enjoyed to their fullest capacity a headphone amp is highly recommended. One weird thing: The pair I have are the 80 ohm model, though they say "DT 770 Studio 80 ohm" on the cans themselves rather than "DT 770 Pro 80 ohm". I cannot find the "studio" version on the Beyerdynamic website, so I am assuming it is just a re-branding.
