    Hey, fuck the Solo HD's they suck. Go for the Beats Mixr's, best headphones ever. Period. I'm not exaggerating, they pratically are perfect and have the NEW controltalk, opposed to Solo's. And you can twist the earcups so you can hear people talk while you listen to music.
    There's loads of other features too: Get them, you can't go wrong, i've had mine for a couple of weeks now and they are just too good.

    I'd buy Bose or Sennheiser, better audio quality, Beats are overpriced.

    Bose is one of the masters at being overpriced

    audio-technica. Response levels seem to be equalized. Zane helped me out on this purchase. But yeah Senns are boss as well.

    I don't what model they are but I just bought a pair of relatively cheap panasonics. Excellent bass and the frequency response is slightly less than my old senns.

    Im using a Sony MDR-V500DJ in the booth. Average quality cheap good for beating around and djing. Not home/studio quality though.

    Yes they are a bit expensive but you get quality in return, they also have the best noise cancelling the industry. Sennheiser has superior audio quality.

    Sennheiser HD650s changed the way I enjoy music, and changed the way I engineer and mix music. In the last two years that I've had them, my critical listening has improved incredibly (aided, in part, by just how revealing and detailed the HD650s are) and I am a better mixer for it. I've also come across a number of magazine reviewers (Sound On Sound for example) and a number of working professionals (including Mastering engineers) who rely on HD650s for their headphone monitoring. I've never read a bad thing about them, and I very rarely see any other products compared with them (occasionally some AKG K models).

    Please excuse me, as I could discuss audio gear all day. In short: Sennheiser HD650s are beautiful.

    I have quiet comforts and the bass is insane and I cant hear shit around me. I know a lot of audiophiles dislike Bose but I have to say I enjoy some their products.

    I dont have that model (I have the 595's) but imo Senns rule the can's industry. The clarity is amazing.

    I currently have one of the lower end Sennheisers (HD429's) and they sound fantastic.

    I had senns and lost them (fucking expensive headphones to just up and fucking lose BTW) and what I didn't realize about them is that they're not very bassy. Didn't really know the difference between studio and personal until then. So if your looking some straight badass headphones sennheiser might not be the best. But for studio none better. Had the HD280's.

    Yes, this is definitely a good point. In my opinion, my Sennheiser HD650 headphones give me a very accurate, faithful recreation of music, with a relatively flat, even frequency response, but with that said, they won't be the bassiest headphones you ever hear. This works fine for me - I love bass, but I like it even and in proportion with the rest of the mix.

    If you want super loud, low, rattle your skull sub, probably look elsewhere (some in-ear phones might provide this, due to the fact that they actually make a physical connection with your ear canal to aid the bass response).

    On a slightly unrelated note, yesterday I tried my friend's "JBL On Stage" iPod dock, and I was astonished at how good such a small set of speakers sounded. I've never really used an iPod dock, the last one I remember using was tinny and cheap sounding (like bad laptop speakers). This was pretty astonishing. I'm considering buying one to use as a reference for playing mixes on.

    For non-noise cancelling, go with the Koss Portapros. They may leak a bit of noise, and they have no isolation, but you can get em on Amazon for thirty or forty bucks. Sound quality, IMO, is better than Beats Solos and rivals many $100-$200 headphones. Furthermore, they come with lifetime warranty AND are from a trusted manufacturer, in fact the company that invented the stereo headphones. They're pretty highly regarded in the audiophile community.
