I need a couple new pairs of studio headphones (my old sennheiser hd280s need replacing) and was wondering if anyone here might have some recommendations of some pairs to check out. I need them to be a pair I can both record with as well as take with me on the road. Here’s my specific needs:
- closed back, over-ear preferred (they’ll be used for tracking vocals and stuff)
- comfortable for a large headed individual (seriously big head)
- price isn’t a huge issue, but I’d rather avoid the super high end audiophile stuff that needs a preamp to sound good, so maybe $250 or below?
- durable enough for travel (repairable parts, detachable cable would be nice)
- even enough eq response to mix if necessary
anyone have any ideas? i’ve been looking at the akg closed back studio pairs, but don’t have much experience with them. any help would be appreciated.
