The right decision for mixing bass in less then ideal spaces!,
This review is from: Beyerdynamic DT250 Headset - 80 OHM (Electronics)
The trend with a lot of inexperienced young producers these day's is to go out and buy the loudest boomiest 8"
monitors they can find.
I want that vibe when I mix they cry.
Then they come to me and moan after trying everything to get there bass under control and get rid of all that mud.
You asked me for advice and I told you to buy a pair of high quality neutral 5" Monitors like the HS50M
and a pair of DT250's
No mate, not enough bass you said!
I told you that your bass would be amplified horrendously by the room nodes and that if you want to mix bass
that translates well your going to need to do it on head phones UNLESS you have a properly treated room!
Well these are the headphones to get for this purposes!
They are industry standards and for good reason
and there about as flat in freq response as your going to find for this price!.
Don't bother wasting your money on large studio monitors anything over 5" is to much for a project studio
UNLESS you have a properly treated room that is large enough and rectangular enough to need that larger
speaker even then I would go with 5" near fields backed up with a dedicated sub woofer (More Flexibility)
You need to go back to a smaller room? No problem all bases covered.
Of course if you have a decent large treated studio
you will want proper mains monitors but then you should no what you are doing by now
Think before you purchase and learn which tools are appropriate for the job you need to do...
A mechanic would never try and unbolt a 6mm bolt with a 25 mm socket.
