Do headphones matter for mixing?
Headphones are great with every part of mixing except space. Things like panning, reverb, delay, and stereo effects. Because you have two monitors strapped directly to your ears, it’s hard to get an accurate read on what different spatial moves will sound like in the real world.

What to look for when buying headphones for mixing?
Comfort. However you wear them, DJ headphones should be comfortable. Check for headband padding, quality of the ear pads, and adjustability. Further, swiveling or rotating cups might provide better fit, and if you like to move around in the DJ booth, look for headphones with coiled and/or detachable cords.
