I'm a composer, and need a pair of headphones for writing and mixing. I have a pair of Genelec 1031A I'll also be referencing, but the bulk of my time will be on headphones and would like them to be as neutral as possible with good imaging. Budget is roughly $500-$600.
Any recommendations? I've spent countless hours reading articles, threads, watching youtube reviews, and keep coming out with different answers. The four I see mentioned alot are:
Sennheiser HD 6 series (600, 650, 6xx, 660s, feels like everyone has a different favorite)
Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO (although some say high end is too harsh?)
HiFiMan Sundara (sounds like QC issues though, and it seems they aren't a reputable brand)
Audeze LCD-1 (just don't see this get praised as much as the others)
Any advice you can give is appreciated. I feel like I'm making no progress narrowing it down.
