Looking for open and closed backs to complement my mixing
I've got a pair of cheap bookshelf monitors (Alesis 3's) that I've grown accustomed to for mixing in the home studio (CHEAP at maybe $100 for the pair). They're not the flattest or the most truthful, but I do this mostly for fun/learning experience and they get me to my goals! I don't have a treated space so I'm more prone to perfecting mixes using multiple sources rather than trying to base everything on one source.
Now I'm at a stage where I'd like to invest in a pair of good, relatively transparent, relatively flat-response open- or semi-open back cans in the $200-and-under range.
I also want to get some decent closed backs for tracking and detail-examination purposes - I'm thinking Sony MDR-7506's as I love these headphones and I dig the bright sound and detail they give... they're so fun to listen to!
I've been looking around at option , and obviously there are hundreds of threads on scores of forums like this, but I'm just looking to get some other stuff on my radar and see what you guys are using, what you've had success with and stuff.
