QuoteInteresting! So, it means you do all your work just with headphones?
Yes, I haven't used speakers to monitor or mix since 2003. I've listened to music primarily on phones all my life and I've now adapted to using them all time. I know conventional wisdom says that 'you can't mix on phones', but (for me) I much prefer the whole headphone 'experience'.
Thanks for your reply! For about 1 year Iīve worked as well on headphones only. I do agree, the whole "experience" is quite impressive (very 3 dimensional feeling) but after a while I realized I had big troubles to judge whatīs going on in the bass. At the beginning Iīve managed to adapt it by listening to reference material but it wasnīt very easy. When I switches back to speakers (including a subwoofer) it was kind of a revealing. But then I missed the "whole listening experience" my headphones provided and I wished to have these back on the speakers Itīs clearly a big difference when it comes to "listening enjoyments" where I definitely prefer headphones. Meanwhile I found luckily a setup where my speakers are sounding very similar to my headphones so I can easily double-check if Iīm on the right path.
BTW: Which model of headphones you are using?
