Mixing Only on Headphones. Really?

James Hardiman


I am forced to consider the buy of a “head-monitor” and that’s when I noticed your enthusiasm for the democratic LCD-1, at AES…

My word, I won’t share any of your words. Well I know… why trust people ;)!

In any case, THANKS very MUCH in advance for your Time and take care!!

Kind regards

I have never started a mixing session with headphones. In the worst case scenario I might use the headphones as a secondary check on a mix that was made on speakers. If you can obtain a reasonably decent set of speakers then you can use the LCD-1s as a secondary reference. That’s what I recommend. 

Yes, you can trust me. 🙂

Best wishes, and stay well,
