I too use headphones for everything (my studio is not the shape or size to use my speakers properly)...
There was a radio programme recently that explored the shift in radio listening from headphones to speakers, describing how people stepped away from purposeful, intense and personal listening to shared experience and doing other things such as eating - making the music a secondary element of the experience.
People even danced to it which they could not with the headsets.....
Back to subject - it can be hard to get things right, but I use the approach that I make it as good as I can on my headphones, then accept that it will generally sound different on every other sound source.
I use Grado SR 325's to record and mix, then Beyerdynamic DT931's to see how it might sound on hi-fi's, then on smaller sennheiser headphones for more general sound.....
thanks for your input!
Is there a link/stream to this radio program youīve mentioned? Would be interesting to hear it!
Yeah, the adapting to other sound sources is always a bit problematic. When iīve mixed on headphones only then (generally speaking) it sounded great on most other headphones but lacks then on speakers visa versa Probably here you have to find a compromise .Luckily Iīve managed now to find something completing each other.
