    Which headphoes do you use with your DAW

    Okay, I know this is probably the wrong forum to post this into, but you guys are always helpful!

    My trusty headphones have just snapped (age probably) and I need to replace them.
    They are Sennheiser HD570's and the most comfortable headphones I've ever had.

    I use them for a variety of styles from orchestral, urban, choral and so on.

    What's a similar price range/comfortable headphones that I can buy as a replacement?
    What do you use?

    Thanks for the replies.

    I thought I may have to go for Sennheiser 600's or 650's but they're so expensive.

    Would you say that the AKG's (half the price) are comfortable and give a true sound?

    I'm using AKG-K171. They are comfortable and I like the sound of them.

    I've read that the ATH-M40fs ones are good for mixing and mastering but that's all I can tell you about them.

    Sennheiser HD600 on the headphone output of my Duets, HD650 on my dedicated music listening rig with Woo Audio WA-2 tube (valve to you) headphone amp.

    They're very comfortable.
    The DF are really accurate in my opinion. The M have more bass less highs and a more pronounced mid range, not as flat as the DF.

    They're both good for tracking and if I had to, I could do decent mixes using the DF.
    They're very close to my Mackie HR824s.
    I often get very close to a final mix using the DFs when I'm tracking, so when it comes time to do the mix there's very little to tweak.
