Studio Headphones
My Headphones fell apart yesterday, only a cheap pair, but served their purpose.
I've looked on the net, there are so many to choose from, I just want a cheap pair that has the frequency response for mixing, as I do the final mix on Logitec PC speakers.
So do I just buy the cheapest closed back headphones, or is it worth spending say 100.00 and get the industry standard Beyer Dynamic DT100 or similar?

Edit: what about these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BEHRINGER-SEMI-PROFESSIONAL-HEADPHONES-PRO-STUDIO_W0QQitemZ160335257140QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_AudioVisualElectronics_HomeAudioHiFi_Headphones?hash=item160335257140&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A2109%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

These were recommended by a Music shop as a cheap alternative:

any of the ones listed above,, Sony makes a very good pair for around 50 to 60 U.S. $$$   All the cheaper ones tend to "Fuzz Out" on the low end.. Won't bother you any cause you're not doing your mix in them.

I used the behringers because of the extended low end clarity. I also use other sets too including a real cheap Roland set.

Still have my cheap Sennheiser's - they are still entacked, no problems, you get a real flat sound. But I have never tried a quality set to compare and still moniter through logic 2.1 PC speakers. I suppose I've got so used to them - again I've never had the pleasure to monitor in an acoustic controlled environment with decent studio monitors.

you don't need it , part of mixing is understanding your listening environment.  If you become an expert with what you have.. it doesn't matter if it's PC speakers or Adams, or mackie or whatever. if you understand you room and speakers you will make great mixes.. I've heard your stuff, very nicely done and well mixed
