    Can I get some suggestions for some quality phones for production as I cannot make it into a music shop for a while I am looking for some help on here, price is no concern

    Thank you

    Denon AH D2000 (I'm getting a pair soon). Really nice flat-ish response compared to most headphones.

    The 5000's and the 7000's are better but more expensive.

    The senhizer HD 800's are a very very good pair of headphones (WAY better then the denons), but they retail at nearly £1000 lol!

    Maudio Studiophile q40 are great, absolutely love mine, even do my mixdowns on them usually. amazing bass response and a really flat sound.

    Either of you tried the 990s?

    If so, is there any difference?

    I personally use the krk kns8400's they are very flat but they do lack bass... but if you have some decent computer speakers with a sub you should bounce between the two :)

    I heard the sennheiser's are the best. I wouldn't know. I have shitty 2.1 speakers to produce, and never owned monitor speakers or producing headphones. Can't afford that shit, hahaha.

    Beyerdynamic 770's are pretty good quality. Highly recommend. There's also a great post in the Jee Juh blog about Earbuds vs Headphones. Provides some good info and could even give you some other options if that's what you're looking for. Good luck!
