    alright, so i bought these headphones, cause they'd fir in my lowbudget budget =p 50Euro's.
    (I needed new ones, so i bought these)
    But i was just wondering, are these also suitable for Producing? (Mixdowns, Mastering etc)

    If not, can you also explain why not?

    thanks in advance :)

    They wont really be very suited to producing no, infact no headphones are really ideal, even top-whack models. They usualy have a frequency response thats not very even so they dont give you an acurate idea of whats going on in your mix.

    Not saying it can't work, but in general headphones don't do you many favours for production.

    hmm, alright thanks for this piece of information, then I'll just have to wait till i get my KRK RP8 monitor fixed... (the fuse broke.... i made a thread about this aswell.)

    Hoped it would be kinda suitable, cause then i atleast had something to properly produce with till i get them fixed D:

    keepin them for jus listenin to the music tho!

    Thanks again!

    i gotta say, they handle the sound sound really well. obviously no headphones are ideal for production but they are pretty damn crisp.

    They're pretty exclusive set of headphones; people ask me if they can have them all the time, and everytime i say no, i love my ducky-ear-buds

    Actually they sound awesome, the sound-proofers keep in all the bass, making for a clean crisp sound. The jack has that gold plating on it so they are low noise. Best $12 i've ever spent.
