Please advise me on your favorite headphones for Hauptwerk.

I have a Mac Book Pro 16GB RAM and i7 processor with 128 GB solid state drive used exclusively for Hauptwerk. I have the included St. Annes, and purchased the Evensong Schantz, and the CLR Aeolian-Skinner Murray Harris sample sets to get started.

From a great virtual organ expert: : We recommend the professional audio card RME series and the AKG Reference Headphone K702/712 for optimal sound and room impression. (Prof. Maier. Organ Art Media)
I got this K702 and I like it very much¡

Thanks Luis. I'll get the AKGs. I'm looking forward to hearing those organs.

If you would afford, buy the AKG K-812. It's such an improvement against the K-712 which I had before. More clarity, bass and such a realism I have never heard before.
Best regards

Probably a good idea, but the operative word here is afford. 8)
