  1. Heya, guys. I'm looking for some professional studio headphones with natural high definition sound (without significant bass boost, treble boost or midrange cut), ... ... so, just some affordable high-end headphones with the flattest possible frequency response that allows me to perceive crystal clear, natural sound and listen to the true musical intentions of a composer or a professional developer of VSTi sample libraries in every little detail. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Edit: My big choice is actually between those headphones: ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro (5 - 35000 Hz, 250 ohms, semi-open) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/beyerdynamic_dt880_pro.htm (also available as a slightly cheaper Black Edition) >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/beyerdynamic_dt_880_pro_black_edition.htm frequency response graph >>> https://reference-audio-analyzer.pro/en/report/hp/beyerdynamic-dt-880-pro.php 2) Audio-Technica ATH-M50X (15 - 28000 Hz, 38 ohms, closed, replaceable jack cable) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/audio_technica_ath_m50_x.htm frequency response graph >>> https://www.rtings.com/headphones/1-5/graph#295/7903 3) AKG K-702 (10 - 39800 Hz, 62 ohms, open, replaceableable jack cable) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/akg_k702.htm frequency response graph >>> https://www.rtings.com/headphones/1-5/graph#332/7903 4) Sony MDR 7506 (10 - 20000 Hz, 63 ohms, closed) ------------------------------------------------------------------- >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/sony_mdr7506_kopfhoerer.htm frequency response graph >>> https://www.rtings.com/headphones/1-5/graph#386/7903 5) Beyerdynamic Custom Studio (5 - 35000 Hz, 80 ohms, closed, replaceable jack cable, headset customization options and 4 adjustable bass levels) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/beyerdynamic_custom_studio.htm frequency response graph (depends on bass slider settings) >>> https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-RugbixtitO8/X34p9pXMlRI/AAAAAAAABeA/m29TVSU-qEwzGQ8U4GiMEuqJxE1dLCNbwCPcBGAsYHg/s1200/Beyerdynamic%2BCustom%2BStudio.jpg ... I already have the Sony MDR-7506 studio headphones, which are really good (except for the somewhat overemphasized 10000 Hz range, which can make the sound a bit harsh). They have a high resolution sound as well as a more or less acceptable stereo reproduction and they are not too uncomfortable to wear (for those people with bigger ears I wouldn't recommend them). The only problem might be that the frequency response drops off dramatically in the range above 15000 Hz - but I don't think that will be critical to the listening experience and accurate mixing. Some time later, I got the semi-open Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro Black Edition (be sure to use the silver earcups instead of the black ones - it makes a huge difference, for example, in terms of a smoother frequency response) and a high-end headphone amplifier, the Lake People G109-P (to better drive and get the most out of these high-impedance studio headphones). And the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro is still my absolute favorite when it comes to important points like: - a natural, faithful and very analytical sound - a very even frequency response - a wide frequency range (5-35000 Hz) - really accurate stereo and depth imaging (when I watch movies with these headphones, I feel like I'm in a small modern Dolby Surround cinema and get sucked right into the action) - a really pleasant wearing comfort And - what's really important with studio headphones - they gave me the best mixing results after listening to my mixes on other monitoring devices like other studio monitors, stereos, car stereos, MP3 players, etc.... They may even be among the best studio headphones for mixing in the world. And they also seem to be much better than the closed-back Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro and the open-back Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro (I also own the DT 990 Pro, which is supposed to be better than the DT 770 Pro, but I don't like the really annoying harsh highs and the little bass boost - may be useful for watching movies and figuring out what a mix would sound like on a lot of customer hi-fi systems, but for mixing I don't really like using them). So, I think I'll definitely stick with the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro. ... But I still try to be open to other current and future developments of studio headphones. So, I really like to check out some professional Japanese studio headphones like the ATH-M50X from Audio-Technica in the future. There are also some new developments at the Beyerdynamic DT professional studio headphones are going, such as the DT Pro X series (the DT Pro 900 X might be interesting, as it seems to be very similar to the DT Pro 880, but still has the next generation Stellar.45 neodymium drivers, an open rather than semi-open design, a similar frequency response like the frequency response of the DT 880 Pro, even thicker ear cups, and a replaceable jack cable). ... As soon as I get a chance to try out or even mix with new models of studio headphones, I'll let you know, of course. ))
