    beyer dynamic DT100's are meant to be the business as they are very neutral. They look quite old skool though, but very comfy for wearing for hours at a time.

    No, I heard that normal headphones aren't reliable for mastering etc so I want some proper ones to produce with

    oh, and watch the volume when monitoring through headphones. Apparently its very easy to damage to your hearing as when you are into it and gently cranking the volume.. after a couple of hours they'll be wrecked.

    you should never mix thought headphones tho..
    any headphones are ok to make beats with but you should mix your tracks thought monitor speakers

    I know, I'm saving up for some Alesis monitors but I thought these would be a transitional thing until I saved up enough for speaker monitors
