I always check any mix on my home hifi (yam a500, marantz cd, monitor audio bx5s) Then on a crappy old cd ghetto blaster, iphone and grado sr80is, the car stereo etc. Once a month i get an hour in a local nightclub to blast through the 80k turbo sound system.
That way you begin to understand how your work translates on a number of platforms and ensures you learn how your monitors translate onto the popular platforms that people WILL be listening to your music on. That is the point of monitoring really.
I hate listening to my ns10s
, but they remain the grey bearded wise mentor , criticizing the mix with no friendly favor. They can sound rubbish, but i am pretty sold on the old saying, if you get it sounding nice on ns10s
, it will more than adequate on most other stuff.
Grado /stax headphones maybe worth a look if it is nice hifi sound you are after. I have grados,krks,ns10s all rigged up to listen as and when i want. All controlled via knobs on the soundcard. Total cost =£500.
And +1000 on the room treatment.
