    Hi!
    I have a question that's not 100% related to recording, but here goes anyway:
    I wan't to get a set of open or semi-open headphones to use for mixing and hifi use. They have to be beyerdynamic, as I can get those heavily discounted, but can therefore be expensive ;)
    What would you go for? DT-1990 or would DT-880 or 990 "do it"? The price difference is quite big...

    Now for the other question: I need a digital and analog headphoneamp for my stereo. Must have digital coax and analog rca inputs, and ideally also "throughputs" for those. USB would be nice, but not essential. What available and good here?

    Cheers!

    Hi Es,

    Did you get a set of headphones yet? Curious as to what you think of them. I have not tried any of those models but I do know that I would gravitate to the DT-1770 instead of any that you mentioned. I like closed cans for studio work and also live mixing. Nothing worse that click track bleeding from the headphones into the mics. And for live, if it's a loud mix, open backs are next to useless.
