Audio Technica ATH-M50 Headphones
Every producer knows that there is no better mixing environment than a controlled studio with tuned monitors. But let’s face it: your apartment isn’t exactly the most acoustically-sound place on the planet. Road noise, bad acoustics, drywall are all working against you, and never mind the fact that your neighbors are getting really sick of hearing the same 16-bar drop for the last 8 hours.
Eventually you’re going to find out you need to mix at least in part with headphones, but most headphones suck. They’re designed to sound good, not accurate. The ATH-M50s are, for the money, the absolute best pair of flat, isolated mixing headphones you can buy. And they have the added advantage of being sexy as hell.
