I've been using the audio-technica ATH-M30 headphones for my small home studio. They sound good, but I'm looking for recommendations on a good quality comfortable pair. Any help would be awesome!

For mixing or for tracking?

I have some older Sennheiser 280s that I have had zero issues with.

I haven't tried a lot but I bought a pair of the Sony MDR 7506's too after receiving similar advice a number of years ago. I've never felt like I needed to try anything else after buying them.

If you have a bigger-sized head, try a pair of AKG 240's. I love them even though I have a smaller head.

The Sony MDR-7506 has some great reviews. But I wonder if they are being discontinued. Very hard to find in-stock. Thanks for the recommendation!

I have read favourable comments about the
KRK KNS-8400.
Haven't heard them but I'm going to buy one pair and then more if I like them.

+1 There may be better ones out there now, but these have worked so well I'm afraid to change.

Get some good powered nearfield studio monitors and ditch the headphones because:

(1) You'll avoid damaging your hearing.

(2) Your mixes will sound better.
