My trusty headphones have just died :Sad:

These were my monitoring system. :no: :no: :no:

Any ideas what to get next? This is an emergency! I was looking at some nice AKG ones, often used by DJ's for around £100ish...

At the moment I'm using Sony In the ear jobbies :lol: :lol: :lol: :!: :!: :!:

here is what I was using, and some of you will probably be all :no: :crazy: :sob: , but I'm absolutely gutted.

if any of you need a good back up solution, I wholeheartedly suggest them. They've taken three years use and abuse from me.

I am so pissed off! :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob:

if you're thinking about getting dj headphones for monitors, check that they dont have a bass boost built in cos some dj headphones do to accentuate kick drums and make beat matching easier

cheers guys, I've been put off the AKG K240 DF ones I was eyeing up, as I've read that they need to be driven very hard to get decent bass response. Something about 600 ohms and I'm not sure wether my sound card will have enough grunt to do this.

I will check out the Sennheiser headphones, I used to use a different model for general listening, and was always pleased.

edit * purchased the sennheiser ones from DV tonight, they look nice - ta colin :Wink3:

i love my sony 700's :Smile3: i've had 'em for over 3 years now, still structurally in very good condition (and they've been round the world for a year in my backpack) and the sound is perfect for mixing especially on a big system :Smile3:

look no further than the audio technica ATH-A900s.

they blow everything in this price range out of the water. they are better than some sonys that are nearly double the price.

they are the coolest looking headphones i have ever seen.

frequency response is insane. the drivers are huge too. the pads cover the entire ear. good isolation.

its in the audiophile section over at audiocubes.com. its only available in japan for some silly reason but you can import them via audiocubes and they wont charge import tax on em.

I like my new sennheisers I think.

Suddenly, I can hear oooooo maybe two extra octaves of bass (as opposed to EQ) clearly. They've already improved my sound no end. Top end is much more defined and clear too.
