Project Studio KRK KNS 8400 Headphones
We have a project studio based around Reaper. It actually comprises of very few pieces of gear. The biggest parts being, guitar and bass, near field monitors and an Auratone clone.
The rest is software. Much of which is free or shareware.
Another key component is currently KRK KNS 8400 headphones. The thing with headphones is that the ear cushions don't last long. We have had many sets over the years. The previous being a wonderful Pioneer set.
It is more important that you are familiar with a set of speakers or headphones, than their obsolete specs. If you have listened to your favourite albums for years on gear, you have a really good idea what things should sound like when listening to your own stuff. Mixing and mastering relies on producing a result that sounds good on any set of speakers and headphones, anywhere.
The KRKs are very comfortable. Maybe the best I've ever had. They also don't hype things like cheaper Sennheisers do.
The KRKs do a very good job. Recommended.
