The problem with headphones is that the pinnae perform an equalization function.

You need to find the brand whose dummy (or actual) outer ears most resemble yours.
It is also why a flat frequency response is not usually desirable in 'phones except for dummy-head recordings.
In my own case I have tried a couple of dozen or so and settled for Beyer DT770Pro as they sounded most natural and un-hyped to ME. All Sennheisers sounded just wrong but that doesn't mean that they would not work for you.

EQ should be natural to a production engineer, you can tailor headphones response to a useful degree - as long as the base headphone is reasonable



while budget blowing you should also at least think about what the SVS Realizer does - and those of us who have heard it with a full personalized calibration think it really does it well - this is not a simple crossfeed or Dolby virtual processor

SVS Technology

there's also the http://seanolive.blogspot.com/2009/1...confusion.html plot of studio control room measured frequency responses wild bass variation to consider too

Sony MDR-7506
Without doubt the most produced HP (being produced by 30 years or so - V6 -> 7506) ever, and the majority of them, hit music production studios.

AKG 701 or 702 are very good for the price.

For closed back I recommend Audio Technica 50x or 70x

Default You may need to consider KRK KNS 8400

KRK KNS 8400 will provide you accurate sound when producing Trap music that you're intended to do... Amazon.com: KRK KNS8400 Studio Headphones: Musical Instruments

It provides good amount of bass feedback and help in mixing music.

Audio Technica ATH-M50x. Wonderful.

Shure SRH-840. Also wonderful, but a bit heavy on the head and slightly increased bass volume.

Sennheiser HD250 Linear II (or Linear mk1) is an excellent sealed headphone. Ensure the earpads are in good condition and are the official pleather type from the manufacturer.

If you want an open-back headphone that doesn't cost a fortune, my pick is the Sennheiser HD540 Reference II.

Both of these models have a neutral transparent frequency response with high tonal accuracy.
