    I use headphones to beatmatch, not to listen to a bunch of different tracks trying to pick one out. Never used headphones when playing with Ableton since there's no need to even worry about something being out of time. By "adventurous" I was talking more along the lines of things like genre shifting, playing three tracks right over each other with EQ swaps, wierd acapellas, etc. For straight A-B house/trance/etc mixing with software I can go for hours without needing to preview anything.

    maybe this is a bad example because jesus doesnt really need headphones but ive noticed he rarely uses them either

    That's a prepared routine. You'd have seriously messed up if you didn't know exactly how it was all going to sound.

    I need a new record collection
    Nah, not really. If I have 2 records that I've never mixed together before, then I'm sure as hell checking they sound good together before they go out to the speakers.

    i played in alot of local places that didn't have monitors in the booth (this was 10-15 years ago)...so i would have to stay in the headphones longer...

    i started bringing my own...but it was just more equipment to lug...so i learned to stay in the headphones...

    Sometimes I don't use headphones, like yesterday I was going through new tracks and started mixing for the fun of it. Unknown tracks, some not even gridded correctly, all without headphones. And it honestly sounded great. I also was only using my X1 with stock tsi. Oh yeah *beast mode engaged*

    Skillex uses ableton live to mix on stage.. as all the tracks are prewarped all he has to do is push play a split second before the bar he wants to introduce the track into the mix. Ableton will sort the rest out so no need for headphones really.
