What do you usually listen to/make music on? Headphones? Regular hi-fi stereo? Dedicated studio monitors? I personally use headphones like 90% of the time but I'm trying to get away from that cuz I feel like it's bad for my ears. The other thing I use is my Sony hi-fi stereo I got at Walmart like 7 years ago, usually with the sub off and eq on flat. Curious how other people listen to/make music.

hesitate to grab a sony mdr 7506, saw good opinions on sp forums and everywhere on internet... seems to be a serious reference.

most of the time i use the Event 2030's (7" studio monitors) for mixing.

also use desktop Logitecs Z623 w/sub for reference or if i'm too lazy to turn the interface and monitors on ha.. so much bang for your buck! these are what i use for general music listening. adjustable sub as well.

i use the Sony 7506's as well for reference but I find they lack some bass, amazing for mixing mids and highs though, great for vocals.

i also reference on Roland RH-200s headphones, i really like them..


headphones can sure get tiring but if you're gonna try mixing on monitors without at least a semi-treated room then you might find yourself reaching back for your headphones.. i dunno.. its nice to have both though!
it's all personal taste really, especially with lofi shit. good luck
