I,m using the DT880,s also, but with Sonarworks. This combo works for me just fine, then I,ll listen on my other pairs of monitors, to check the mix. CD,s sound great on all playback systems.

Thanks folks, I think the 880s are probably the set to go for given the many excellent reviews and glowing reports in this thread.

I do have Sonarworks HE, so could compare Nx (EQ) correction to SW correction to no correction at all, which would be interesting to me in and of itself. Might even splurge on a SW calibration at some point.

I have both here.

Admittedly my 990s are an older pair, but my newer 880s (250 Ohm model) are more accurate in every respect and a much better tool for mixing.

I used to be a rocker, but now I've gone off it and just sit in one. (JL)

Beyer DT100s for tracking and Artists foldback, (helps to provide a headfone balance by using the same fones as your artists' listening to). Also have excellent isolation and comfort.

Using headfones to Mix on, have a budget pair that are amazing - SENNHEISER HD419.

Comfy, reasonably precise, Nice to work with.

Would always recommend checking against your chosen Monitors/ in the car / etc.

Have avoided in ear/buds. No consistent response , and bad for your long term listening.

I used the DT 990 Pro for many years, and i like the sound and would recommend them.
