Hey Graham!

You mentioned “range” – are you looking for wireless headphones?

For music production, I’d only recommend wired (connect with a wire) headphones, as Bluetooth definitely degrades the quality of the audio when wireless!

For headphones, you have closed-back headphones and open-back headphones.

Closed back headphones are typically used for recording purposes, as they don’t allow the audio to escape from the headphone cans (they are also useful to prevent outside noise being heard inside the headphones, too!)

Open back headphones are typically used for mixing and mastering because they allow the audio to escape the headphone cans, which are designed to be more neutral sounding because there’s less build-up of frequencies inside the headphones.

So first know what you’re using the headphones for!

For the best headphones for music production, I haven’t tried too many models, but I’m currently using these two:

  • beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro for mixing/mastering
  • beyerdynamic DT 770 for recording

Let me know more details what you’ll be using the headphones for, and I can try to direct you a little bit!
