Factoring the needs and all situations, the Shure SRH940

$250

http://www.headphones.com/Headphones/Shure-SRH940-Professional-Premium-Reference-Dynamic-Closed-Back-Over-Ear-Headphones-SRH940-68062.html?a=HPSFRG

Neutral response, isolates + closed, suitable for all devices. However comfort might be an issue as the headband design isn't the best. Headband build quality is fine.

If you're willing to go a bit over budget, get the Pioneer HDJ 2000. I have read countless good reviews about them, as well as seeing a DJ wear them as he opened for Deadmau5 in Chicago, as well as two different DJs wearing them at the Skrillex New Years Eve show in Milwaukee. Also try the Sennheiser HD25-1 ii, as well as the fantastic reviews and long-standing status as the best portable cans under $300, I know for a fact that world-class DJ Feed Me uses them, I recognized them the moment he went on stage in Chi biggrin.gif

I use a pair of AKG 271's in my church. Isolates sound pretty good. I use a Behringer UCA202 USB Audio Interface for recording and monitoring.

Doesn't suit his needs. read the OP. He ain't a DJ!
He doesn't want to mix the bass organ above those of the vocals or pianos.

Yep, the AKG K271 is another fine choice as well but I'll lean towards the Shure SRH940 more.

Oh, sorry, my bad. When I saw live mixing I automatically assumed DJ. Anyway, my sincere apologies for the mixup.

Those Shure's look good. I just know that, well at least in my church, we are limited on budget, so the cheaper is always better. And by cheaper I mean in price. You got to get the best you can within your budget. Plus, since it' God's money, I just try to make sure I don't waste it thumb.gif

Thanks for the input boys! And yeah there is no budget for them so it would be out of pocket anyways.

The SRH940 is massive overkill for a church setting. The SRH840 is $125 on Amazon and has very good, neutral sound that's very detailed and revealing. They isolate extremely well, though the comfort is just average at best.

Don't forget the Sony MDR V6 which can be found for $75 and is the best monitor headphone in its price range. It's pretty much the standard for monitor headphones in so many industries. If you watch behind the scenes of a lot of tv shows/movies you'll always see the guy holding the boom mic wearing one of those.

However importantly the SRH940 has more timbre and bigger soundstage over the SRH840, which is hugely important in terms of church music.
the MDR-V6 is bass light, not to mention lacks detail retrieval. As stated, headphones used in studios are usually used for vocals and not mixing instruments like the OP wants.
