Something I talk about a couple of times before is mixing with headphones. Opinions about suitability are, of course, divergent as just about anything you can have an opinion on. For me, it is excellent to mix with headphones, although I prefer to sit in a control room with sensible monitors. On the other hand, what speaks volumes for mixing with headphones is mobility and the freedom to work wherever and whenever you want. (In English at the bottom of the page).
If you are going to learn to mix with headphones, I think anyway that you should do your research and find something that suits you and that will give you consistent results. Some companies that make In-Ear headphones have started to invest in making reference headphones for studios and mix jobs. One of these companies is Empire Ears which I bought a pair of ESR from almost a year ago. In Ears may not be the first thing most people think of when it comes to mixing, but I’m very happy with how it has gone for me. So, this week’s video is about my Empire Ears ESR and a bit of what to think about when mixing with headphones.

Something I’ve talked about a couple of times before is mixing with headphones. The opinions are obviously divided about just as a lot of other things that has to do with audio. For me it works just fine to mix with headphones, even if I enjoy it more sitting in the control room with the monitors. The thing that speaks for mixing with headphones is the flexibility and the possibility to work when and where you want.
If you want to learn how to mix with headphones I strongly advise that you do your research and find something that suits you and that will give you consistent results. Some companies that make In Ears started to make reference earphones for studio and mix work. One of those companies are Empire Ears from which I bought a pair of ESR about a year ago. In Ears are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to mixing, but I’m very happy with how it turned out for me. So, this weeks video is about my Empire Ears ESR and what you should think about if you want to start mixing with headphones.
