Question HEADPHONES

I'm needing some headphones for my project studio
What do you guy suggest and where's the best place
to get them?

I'm also interested in the 'quality' to price range ratio.dfegad

The Sony MDR-7506 closed ear headphones are good for tracking. $100 or thereabouts. Sennheiser 580 headphones are nice, though some people prefer the 600 model. 580s run about $200, the 600 run about $300 plus change. These are both open eared.

So much for my opinions. Here's a great site for headphone information:

I've come to quite like the Ultasone's... they're kinda new to the US market, but so far I like what I hear... as for where to get them? What the **** do you think I'm going to say?

Hey Fletcher, if I send you shirt, can you foreward it to MIXERMAN?

Hey Fletcher,
Do you mean Ultrasone? (not Ultasone). Are you intimating that Mercenary sells them? Because they don't show up when I do a search there.

I bought some Sennheiser 280 Pros for the studio (after using AKGs for years) . . so far I like them. They have great isolation (from loud drum kit) and seem fairly tough. $85 / $95 street price (cheap price for what you get). The AKGs are a bitch to repair. I have a pair of Sennheiser 580s that I use for my personal set. REALLY like them.

Only if you send two... I think your shirt is exceptionally cool, so if you sent one, I'd steal it before it ever got to MM... my current Budweiser induced pregnancy would suggest an XL (yeah, yeah... I'll diet after football season)... MM is probably an XL as well.

You got it. Just go to the web site and then to the 'merch' section.

Let me know which one you'd like and make a choice for MM!

If you can get back to me soon, I'll put them in the mail before I fly out later on. I'm flying out to rock all the groupie sluts in Florida... I'll be gone for a week.

Everyone feel free to rob my house while I'm gone!

PS
That Mixerman article is the greatest thing I've ever read!
I found about it late and read the whole thing at one time. I couldn't put it down!
