One of the reasons I mix on low volume. A world-renowned mixing engineer (Chris-Lord Alge?) says he mixes on such low volume, that if somebody in the same room was typing, it'd throw him off. If it sounds good quiet, there's a very good chance it'll sound good loud! Doesn't always work the other way around though.
Of course, you need to make sure your track sounds good loud, but the majority of the time mixing should be spent listening on mid-low volume.
