What do you recommend be my next Studio Headphones? (I'm using Abbey Road Studio 3)

My old Sony MDR-7506 has almost had it.

I prefer closed back headphones as I don’t have a treated room.

What studio headphones that you own would you recommend that I get to use for the next 10-15 years?

I am happy mixing (or at least checking mix) with the Sennheiser HD800S. However, they are open back. I prefer that they can breathe a bit. In my opinion, it makes extended wearing much more comfortable. My room is treated, but far from perfect.

Hi @greg.timmons.road

I got the BeyerDynamic DT 880 Pro, and I am pretty happy with my choice.
They are half open and very comfortable, as well I like the way they sound(for me).

However, I think it is more of a subjective thing, there is a lot of great gear out there… :slight_smile:
The best way to go I think is to take a good reference of music that you know well, and go to music gear stores and test some headphones, until you will find something that sounds and feel good for you.

I hope it will help. :slight_smile: :headphones: :headphones:

I bought the Austrian Audio HiX65 open headphones and they have been a revelation.

They’re not cheap, but I think they’re worth every penny.
