    Hey Galen, me again.. just happen to be lurking ? Monitors I can’t speak from experience but if I was in a buying position I would get the Kali LP6’s. If money was super tight then the iLouds from IK Multimedia also have a great reputation.
    Headphones, for mixing you really want open back if possible. I use AKG K702’s which I really like in conjunction with the Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone edition, (there should be a discount for academy members I think).
    This is a hugely subjective topic though.. there’s no one right answer I’m afraid. I like the AKGs because I can wear them for a long time without discomfort, and now I’m getting pretty familiar with how they sound... The Beyer Dynamic DT range has a good rep as well.

    Best of luck!!
