    Default For the headphone warriors

    Those of us who live in apartments or with room mates sadly can't blast music as loud as possible through PA/monitors every time we want to mix.

    I do most of my mixing and set creation with headphones on... so much that I bought some AKG's solely for this purpose.. my hdj2000's were clearly not designed for extended wearing.

    I've found that as the night goes on I'm turning my headphone amp louder and louder. The next day my ears will seriously hurt even though my chest has been untouched by the bump of bass.

    ENTER THE BEST IDEA OF ALL TIME

    Vibrating motors on your chest that simulate standing in front of Powered Subs at a concert. I'm buying 20.

    You should check out Ultrasone. They really seemed to help with ear fatigue when I had a set, but they were to big for my head.

    Well, there's your problem. Stop destroying your ears.

    What is it with musicians having no idea how ears work?

    Thats a cool idea. But does it work?? I couldnt see this idea actually improving the listening experience or 'loudness' of music. In regards to production don't you want to be listening to exactly what the person listening to your production is going to hear.

    Please correct me if im wrong..
    I play everything Indie/ Rock/ HipHop/ Cheese/ Electro/ Dubstep and anything that sounds good

    Odd, I wear my HDJ2ks 6-8hs a day and never had any discomfort or fail.

    Rest your ears a few mins every hour and you should be ok.
