There are subtle details to look for when choosing your headphones. Making sure that when you choose a pair they have a nice flat response, meaning there is no added bass, treble, or any other frequencies. This will help you get an accurate sound while producing and improve the overall quality of your music. Make sure the headphones are comfortable, durable, and have a decent-sized cable. Further down the line, you may consider upgrading to a pair of open-back headphones specifically designed for mixing, but for now, choosing a quality pair with a flat response will work wonders for your music.
