    Err, not quite sure that's what I meant. I like headphones a lot, the new Focal Spirit Pro's I just got blew me away with how good they sound. But I don't think I would go so far as to say they sound better than my monitors, I'll choose them any day of the week

    Yes. Produce as quiet as you can reasonable get away with. When "finishing" any given stage of your process, it is helpful to listen at multiple levels...but that's 10 or 15 minutes max.

    Mixing a track (not beatmixing, but producing) in headphones does have some problems. Nothing major if you are aware of them. There is still value to having monitors.

    As one trivial example, if you hard panned a channel...in headphones you would only hear that in one ear....but in monitors you would hear the signal in both ears, with one slightly delayed. That will make a difference in how the final mix sounds.

    Ehh I could probably just monitor quieter xD

    I've been playing around with Focusrite's VRM box with KRK KNS-8400s recently. Anyone have any experience with VRM?
