I just bought the Sennhesiser HD 380 pro and the quality is amazing. But you gotta understand the your tracks will not sound great when producing with headphones. I'm only using them so I can atleast good enough to make tracks that a lot of people will enjoy, once I am that good I'll get monitors. Nevertheless, they are still better than desktop speakers, so if you have no choice, go for some monitroing headphones.

Disagree.

It is possible to make whole tracks on headphones without referring with monitors - i've had fine results with my sennheisers.
With that said, you have to bear in mind that the sennheiser hd series boost the bassfrequencies, and you have to take that in consideration when producing a track; i wouldn't recommend those in the first place unless you know them very good.

But to get the best results, look after headphones with linear frequencyresponse. AKG have some (i've heard) good headphones for studio-use, and krk just came out with some new ones too wich are quite good - one cheap, and one more expensive model.

Sure http://www.soundcloud.com/casperc

Every single track there has been produced, mixed and mastered on headphones - only the 3 latest has both been on monitors and headphones.

I don't think you've made a bad choice. Sennheisers are excellent hifi-headphones. I enjoy listening to music on mine.

That's a pretty subjective question, why don't you find out by yourself? (:

Because I'm new to producing, and obviously I can listen to them for myself, but you seem to have knowledge on the subject so I asked you.

AKG headphones are pretty nice and sturdy.

Don't go cheap, bad brands like Skullcandy. They break easily and don't sound too balanced.

Go with the pro brands ;)
