    Hi Mange, I have been doing mixing on headphones for a long time now and I use monitors more now that I have a new room but it is very possible to craft great mixes on headphones! The bass end of things can get a little difficult to tame at times but with experience you get a knack for it. As most people actually listen to music on headphones these days I think it makes sense to at least reference a mix on headphones.If you are going to mix with headphones you must try to buy some with as flat an EQ curve as possible as this will not influence your decisions while mixing. I would also recommend that you reference a mix through a small mono speaker also as you will hear how the bass sits in the mix as these little speakers are very mids heavy! I hope this helps.

    Cheers mate,
