Sup? The title is not encouraging - in this topic we will be discussing a neglected option by music producers community. Yes, I am talking about headphones that are suitable for monitoring purposes. I know, I know, monitors are essential, but my conditions at home are rather cheesy to allow a pair of monitors. Not to mention, up to this day I have been producing with rubbish equipment. So I want to purchase semi-pro headphones. After brief research I have came up with two options that are widely appraised: ATH M50 and Beyerdynamic DT880. I like the DT880 that are more efficient when amplified(250 ohms version), but I won't purchase an amplifier. With M50 the main problem is that they are closed-back. Please help me choose a decent pair of headphones(max 250€) that work well without amplification. Of course you can suggest alternative headphones. - - - Updated - - - Or how about 80ohms DT770 Pro?
