I use both and phonitor ( spl ) to simulate the speaker angles and crosstalk.

That way you hear the smallest of details and hear what you whould hear while listening to speakers.

It's not about what you got to use but how you use what you got.

Definitely reference on headphones as well as monitors. People often talk about this subject as if it's an either/or situation, but it's really a matter of not just wanting but needing both. There's also a third element that often goes unmentioned which is acoustic treatment. No matter how awesome your monitors are, they will be affected by the acoustics of your room. Not all of us can afford tons of acoustic treatment panels, so we still need killer headphones.

The information you shared here is very helpful. Thanks for sharing it here.
I have some confusions about the power they consumes? How i can measure the power given to them?
Also how i can select the jack size of the headphones?
Can i adjust their volume and other feature with some modifications into them from their original condition?

I'm no expert, but I believe you can use a household digital voltmeter, a low output impedance signal generator, and a resistor.

Here's a video on measuring output impedance:

But I don't understand, are you trying to build your own headphones? Because I find it much easier to simply read the specs of commercial studio headphones than to measure it myself :-D

Then, just use an adapter to provide flexibility between using a 1/4" or 1/8" jack.

Do you have headphones for which you can't find the specifications? Or are you building DIY headphones?
