Great Mixing Headphones!
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I was mixing and mastering an album, and using pretty good speakers and similar headphones, but because my room acoustics are still not treated, my mixed would pretty consistently fall apart when listening on other speakers. I bought the Focals in hopes it would save the day/album, and I couldn't believe it when it actually did! So to me, especially when you need to take the room out of your mix, the Focals clarity and extremely accurate interpretation of what your computer 'hears', and its ability to help one then create a mix that translates well on all speakers and headphones is amazing! Now I'm looking to buy (in the future) some better mixing monitors from Focal!
Pros: Clear, and most importantly your mixes end up translating almost perfectly across all other speakers and headphones. If you are SERIOUS about mixing, get these headphones!
Cons: If you need them to be up to par right away, you may not be ok with needing to break them in with 50-100 hours of use. I played music through them from an iPod for a day and that seemed to get things right. My mixes turned out great!
