Any useful suggestions on Dance music monitoring headphones...?

I'm looking seriously at the AKG 270's or lightweight 271S's




I'm open to some thoughts..

I've got some Sennheiser HD 25s - and the clarity is spot on for what I need. :cooljump:

zur tin,

Are you D.J'in tho?? They're good for monitoring bass tone P.F.L's I find.. Not sure how good they be for production monitoring.

I guess they rate pretty highly, but..


Need a bit more width and dynamic range. Something, not zur wot wot dough.

I've got Sennheiser HD 200s, which I use. Quit like um although I haven't tried any other head phone to be honest with you so I can't compare.
Just thought that if I spent over a certain amount then they were sure to be good.

Fair comment me thinxiz>>



Gonna start flapping some £50 notes about then - see what sticks. :crazy:

Naaah, I think the AKG's are the likely choice so far... Anymore for anymore??

over the last month or so, while my monitors were off for repair i got the best part of a new track down using only HD25's - i got my monitors back last week, plugged em in & hey presto...the new track written using only headphones sounds Ace!!

personally i find headphones too tiring in the long run, but once you know your sounds you can just use the headphones to crack on with writing of the music & then mix it later.

ended up getting the Sennheiser HD-25's and they are lovely. They are much better at the low end, which is where I want them for DJing, and fuck me, they'll make my ears bleed before they distort :Grin:
