Real World Speaker or Headphone Check?
Howie - thank you for making yourself available.

I am curious if you check master mixes on "real world" speakers or headphones to see how they translate from serious mastering monitors to more of an end user domain. If yes, can you share what you use or have found to provide a good baseline in that area?

Thanks in advance...

I have a pair of advent powered 570's. They are fantastic sounding small speakers and give me a great real world reference. They sound a lot like a car stereo.

As for headphones, sometimes I'll check on earbuds.
