I prefer closed headphones because I tend to use them in moderatley noisy envrironments so I want to block out some of the interfering sounds.

However, for mixing and studio work I imagine you are in a quiet, soundproofed environment. In that case, I would go open or semi open, as they tend to be more clear and transparent.

As always, see if you can listen to several pairs of headphones in your price range. Get the ones that are most pleasing to your ear... even if they are closed-back! \:\)
