Re: Monitors vs. headphones...
[i]"Now, I worked on a tune and have mixed it so that it sounds fantastic with my sub and monitors. When I put those headphones on to hear what it sounds like, it is absolute crap! I even bounce the result to see if it is my system, but nope... imaging sucks. Things sound unbalanced and "flat" in the sound space. Nothing gels together."[/i]
How do professionally produced & mastered releases sound through the headphones?
How do professionally produced & mastered releases sound through your monitoring system in your room?
Listen to stuff through the headphones that you're very familiar with and have heard in a variety of settings to get your bearings.
With any headphones or speaker/room combination, you have to "learn" them.
It's good to have a lo-fi monitoring alternative.
Not everyone is going to be listening on "money" gear.
