What about headphones?

Just wondering if you ever use any at all during mixing or mastering. Any favorites? I can't help but notice all the people using headphones (mostly ear buds) at the gym, or the proliferation of iPods and the like. Is this something you normally consider?

I use headphones to help focus on a leaf, never the forest.

Yeah- what he said. Panning problems jump out at you on phones. So does certain types of reverb stuff.

It does open the market for 'iSpeaker'.
An active adapter that simulates the speaker experience/balance, on ear buds!

(you heard it here first, 10% please )

I have pair of Pioneer's (Closed, from the late '70's,
which are nice for 'listening').
I use the Studio Cans (AKG 240) for investigating.
Locally (MTSU), ask thier Recording Students to have Grado!
They might be good.
Finally, I tried using Sennhieser's a few years ago, I don't remember the model number ($600.00)
but they sounded pretty good.
That's as much as I can add.
