    Me and another producer was jokin last night about that headphone shit... I thought I was the only one...

    It's a shame when niggas got hella money spent on equipment and can't even make beats out loud. I know I can't, I gotta use some fuckin headphones.

    Otherwise the fuckin neighbors bangin on the wall or callin the front office on me tryin to get me written up again.

    Is there a real way around this shit? this headphone shit is gay as hell cuz I got some Event TR8 20/20s and I haven't made a beat without headphones in almost a year.

    I rock the headphones when I'm putting beats together simply because I got shot speakers and need to cop some dope ones in the near future. but the noise ain't a problem, we make tracks til 5 in the mourning 'round here.

    monitors make me wanna do more beats.


    headphones kill the vibe to me. cuz its like i cant be free.. whereas them monitors u can blast and do cartwheels around the fuckin room while ya beat plays.

    and the bass... i like bass

    I was like that when i was living in this apartment with paper thin walls.. now i don't though. I used to ALWAYS lose track of time when I make a beat, and be going at it well after midnight.. I'd get a club banger going on, then i'd always hear the walls bang back at me and i'd spend the rest of the night with headphones on or my monitors REALLY low.. lol.. once, i woke up with a letter under my door, and another i got the landlord calling me.. Ain't nothing you can do about it... i hate producing with headphones, same reasons as maestro.

    you can get some headphones that got madd good quality. 100-200 dollars, but they got allthe bass, all the hi's ect.

    i use headphones for the mostpart. havent bought monitors yet, not really too deep into producing yet to do it.

    yea like turl said, soundproof the room or move.

    aint much more u can do. i dont like using headphones for anything because u can't get the full effect of your mix. like with a subwoofer i can do a bassline and be happy with the volume, eq, and everything, but soon as i put the headphones on....the bass is some ass. (usually because headphones dont pick up the real low frequencies that the subwoofer picks up).

    basically..headphones are inaccurate imo. but sounds like you have no choice so...get a real expensive pair haha.

    i used to be a headphones producer a few years ago...but i learned that that was fuckin my hearin up...so i had to stop that

    I only use em for maybe like 10 minutes at a time, to check stuff like the panning, how it sounds in stereo, and small details u cant hear on regualr speakers
