"I have, of course, the Sony Studio Monitor headphones which are the industry standard. Just fantastic. They actually make two - the $99 pair and the one for $129, and they're both fantastic. I've never heard a better headphone and never, ever found a more comfortable headphone. It's amazing to me how many people don't actually use those. But I always like using headphones when recording for the majority of the work."more
My Stepdad gave me these, and he was allegedly given these by Michael Jackson's producer in the 90's. I cherish these well. These are built for production and therefore are flat out "vanilla" with sound. Normal headphones have some kind of mods like bass or mids, but these play the tracks EXACTLY how they were produced. I have to say, this factor has improved my production and mastering. Thanks Sony!
