Agreed! There are a number of nice things about AJ but the prices must increase! (it would also be nice to see more sensible licensing agreements or a PRO & Non-PRO Section…. but prices first!)
They are more expensive than the price range you listed, but i strongly suggest checking out the Sennheiser HD650, they are an investment that will last you for many many years.
Logic Pro 9 here, as well as Protools HD 9…. and as far as DAWs go, at least logic is 64 bit, even if it is lacking a few things these days. @reubenchng careful when bouncing tracks out of logic, sometimes a offline bounce will not sound the same as real time…. A very odd issue that seems to vary with plugins.
