I recently bought some bose around ear headphones for recording. And looking at some reviews it seems many people say they boost low frequencies too much. Are they really that bad and is it worth returning them .( to people who have experiance with these headphones.)

Well... You'll end up with bass-light mixes, but there are better things to spend your money on. Monitors for example. What headphones were they?

With pedals you can throw your guitar down for an impromptu pedal drone solo, whereas if you did that on a rack it would just look like you were programming your washing machine.

+1 if your looking to mix youll want a good pair of monitors instead. headphones should be more for listening pleasure,tracking instruments, and just another sound source.

well whats a good pair of cheap monitors

well i use krk rokit 5's, 300$ for a pair. they work for me and they have tons of good reviews. anythign cheaper than that i dont think will work that well. this is the only one where ive seen that has had decent results.

yea Bose really does boost the low end quite a bit.
If you want to mix songs you really should do it on a set of studio monitors instead. KRK makes a few low end units which work very well.

Spot on. Don't settle for less than the Rokit range, you'll be kicking yourself afterwards if you do. If you don't have the money than don't bother buying any headphones or monitors until you can afford them.

yea for small projects if you have computer speakers just use those, or if you want the head phones for listening pleasure get them. DO NOT get headphones just for mixing. if your gonna listen to music with them and just happen to mix with them thats fine, but dont get headphones that are made for mixing, im pretty sure they dont exist

One exception being the M-Audio Studiophile 40s - they really are damn good for monitoring on a budget.
