i'm in the process of rebuilding a project studio that has lain inactive for the last several years. i'll be using the studio to primarily record deep house music with a jazzy/electronic feel incorporating some live instrumentation (sax, trumpet, guitar, maybe african/latin percussion) and vocals--but the majority of my music will be recorded using synths and my DAW.
i'm using a set of event 20/20's to monitor recordings on speakers but am completely stumped as to headphones.
in the past i've used sony mdr-v600 which are more than adequate if you dj and just need to hear the thump of the drums and the high end percussion in order to seamlessly mix other people's recordings. but overly sweetened sound on those headphones obviously is a bad choice for recording purposes.
still, as bass and high end is such an important feature in creating the sense of space in dance music, i know i want a pair of headphones that will allow me to plow through potential low-end muddiness and high end hyperambience of percussion and basslines while keeping my ears open to accurately reproduced midrange vocals and melodic instruments.
i've read reviews for sony mdr-7509's, sennheiser hd600's, some grado headphones too.
any recommendations for the style of music i'll be producing?
