I've been looking into headphones for music production and general purposes (listening to music and such)
and I think I will either get the bose qc 15's or the beats pro. I know bose isn't the best for producing and that the beats may not have audiophile sound...but I can't think of anything else. Other headphone suggestions would be appreciated too.

From what I've read, Bose has no bass and no highs, just mids.

Also from what I've read is the Those Beats have a fairly flat frequency response, except for the ridiculously boosted bass.

On another note, here's a really good thread on headphones with a lot of information you may want to take into consideration.

Sennheiser, Audio Technica, AKG, and Denon brands all have headphones in the same price range as the ones you mentioned, except these headphones are way more worth your money and are much better for production.

Thanks for all the advice! Now i've narrowed it down between the Sennheiser HD 280 pro and the ATH M50....

The ATH M50's are a litle more expensive..... should I pay the extra money? Or are the sennheisers the way to go?

The Sennheiser HD 280 pro features reversible ear-cups and 32 dB of ambient noise attenuation. Great for DJs though I'm not sure you need all that for producing tracks at home. Also, these microphones have a great frequency response of 8 Hz to 25 kHz
(-10 dB/1 kHz), but the response curve is much too WAVY to do much for using them for audio production. All the frequencies are boosted nearly +10dB and a boost of +5dB to the 5k frequency range. Again, all this is great for DJs, hence why they're marketed that way. I would suggest staying away from these $150 headphones and going with anything else that won't alter the frequencies as much.

Leave the frequency altering to you (or the mixing engineer). It's the easiest way for your tracks to sound similar to everyone.

I love my Sennheiser HD-25's, and I recommend them to everyone as the perfect all-purpose headphones. I use them for sound editing (film) and music production, and they're burly enough to be thrown around in your pack when you're out and about.

Even if you don't go with the HD-25's, I'd recommend sticking with Sennheiser cans. Best bang for your buck in my opinion. I have a pair of Sony's and a pair of AKG's sitting next to me that I haven't touched since I bought my Sennheisers.
