Referencing/Live Set Headphones

*EDIT* I would like to make a final decision today, so I can purchase my new cans..

Hey everyone! New to the forums here :3

I have been looking around for some referencing headphone, when I produce, electronic music, and for when I play some live sets... I need nice true sound, and decent low end, that's not colored.. I am coming out with my first EP, sometime in the new few weeks, so I need some new cans, to remaster the tracks...

Don't flame me, but erm... I am using SteelSeries cans... I recently started, investing in studio gear, so I did buy a nice audio interface, which is a Scarlett 2i2...

Preferences:

1. Closed Back
2. Flat True Sound, No V Shape w/e
3. Good Low End
4. Not Heavy
5. Good For Referencing, and Live Set Play
6. $50-$100 (Not looking for something like M50s (To much ^__^)

I have looked at some cans, already, like the CAD Audio MH310's, Superlux HD668B, and Shure SRH440s, and they all three look good... I think the CAD, is a rebraned 668B, right?

Thanks, Hope to have a good time, on the forums here..

there is 1 standard for live HP - and that's Sennheiser HD25.

and they're worth the money.

there is a cheaper edition of them - try this, i don't know it, but for live & studio I cannot reccomend anything else..

maybe try also SonyMDR7506

Those MDR's looks nice, they remind me of the SRH 440's.. I will watch a few reviews one them, cause I need something with a flat freq response, so I can hear the sound, true, when I produce, and something that will be good for live set playback, when I play my tracks live...

i see..

but never underestimate the wearing comfort of headphones - because no matter what your decision will be, you'll get used to the sound of your phones - but you won't get used to uncomfortable headphones.

just my 2ct
