Three sets of headphones in the November 2011 of RAP

The Ultrasone Pro 750 headphonesWhen the last pair of longstanding favorite AKG K-240 headphones (the regular 240 model) finally gave up the ghost, it was time to go shopping. Yes, I’ve listened to some of the recent crop of celebrity-endorsed headphones — they were uniformly bad with sloppy, overhyped bass — and found them completely unsuitable for production work.

The most interesting production-grade headphones were the beyerdynamic DT 1350 Professional Headphones, the Ultrasone Pro 750s, and Shure’s SRH940. In the November issue of Radio and Production magazine I’ll tell you how I think they stack up.
