    Tutorial: Introduction to Audio Mixing

    Dan Kury's tutorial rightly advocates the use of quality
    monitors,but my PC is located in DiningRoom/Study with no room for decent monitors.

    My serious listening room has a pair of Spendor speakers
    and I can feed them (through the wall) from the PC but of
    course for serious tweaking etc I need to be at the PC!

    Any views on good quality headphones for mixing orchestral music would be very wellcome.

    I also have speaker restrictions due to my DAW being in the the living room.

    I use Beyer DT990 Pro headphones. These are open back headphones with a good flat response. The difference in the bass end compared to other headphones I have (Behringer, Sennheiser etc) is quite remarkable.

    I would thoroughly recommend these.

    To argue the opposite of Paul and give you more options ,

    Check out some closed-back headphones too. You'll lose the breadth and, well, openness of open-backs but they isolate the mix from the room allow you to monitor at lower levels.

    Beyer makes good cans. AKG also has lines for both closed and open backs.

    Best,

    Hi, I have AKG271 HeadPhones. (nice review here: http://www.dansdata.com/k271.htm).

    I bought them because I wanted to avoid buying expensive studio monitors. After many attemps and deceiving results, I finally bought a pair of Tannoy Monitors anyway.

    I quickly realised that there is a world between headphones and monitors, even if my AKG271 are excellent. So very good headphones will certainly allow you to do a basic mix and mastering but you might be deceived if your goal is to do serious work.

    Have you considered any monitors with a small 5 inches woofer? They are not that big and not so expensive.

    Just my 2 cents.
    Good luck with your choice.

    Thanks, for all your replies.

    Nicolas, monitors + 5 inch woofers ?Any models suggested (available in the UK)? I am very much out of touch with the loud-speaker world - my Spendors are nearly 25 years old and still going well.

    While writing this ,it occured to me that a 2+1 - Left+right+centre might not be too obtrusive.

    Regards to all,

    It really depends on your budget. I know KRK have a good reputation for entry level monitors: http://www.krksys.com/prodland_rokit.php

    But you might want to search and compare different models before spending too much money.

    Good luck
