wich headphone is good for using while playing (and recording) over a studio-mixer ?
An AKG 141 should suffice, save your money for some good monitors, preferably active ones.
Do some testing on your own, good brands are Sennheiser, AKG, Audio-Technica. Some Sonys are good too.
It's pretty hard mixing on headhones only, since they ALL have an altered sound.
well, the monitors are the problem of my brother-in-law ... I just need a good headphone that will sound good... but trying is not realy an option..
I meant try <b>before</b> you buy, of course, there's no way around it. Everybody hears differently, so you have to find what you like best.
The 141 is a decent cheap headphone, and widely used, similar to the Yamaha NS-1 speakers.
IMO, AKG K240s $80 are incredible. I have little experience with anything else.
The AKG K240m is the defacto standard for studio headphones.
