    Best Headphones atm?

    Which headphones should i get? i dun want no cheap ones cos i already got a crap one.

    I notice the following are the industry standards:
    Pioneer 1000
    Technics 1200
    Sony V700
    Sennheiser HD25 (most expensive of the lot)

    I prefer the Sony, as it is more budget than the Sennheiser

    I really wanna listen to you's opinion before splashing out

    either go with the technics or the sennheiser i had the other two and the sound is great from them but the build lets them down alot.

    what you should do is google for user forums and make your mind up from what you read there,whish i did that before i bought the ones i bought

    My favouryte ones are the Senheisser HD 25. There are the smallest, the made you a lot of pressure into the ear and you can´t listen to the sound aoutside. You increase de sound level and they doesn´t make distortion. They are adapted to your head vey well and the haven´t got a lot of weight like others.

    I have a pair of Sony MDRv700's and I love them. The only thing that you'll find with the Sony's is that the frequency response is not flat, I find them to be a little heavier on the low-end (which i prefer, personally, b/c I can just cue the high-end live from the booth monitor)

    The Sennheisers are larger, and are better for sound isolation, if you are easily distracted with booth/crowd noise. I don't find the Senns very comfortable.

    The Pioneers are probably my next set of cans, mostly cuz they look sexy as all hell

    In the end, it all comes down to personal preference!

    i got me a pair of stanton dj pro 3000's and they're good and damn comfortable, but after furthur research, i realized i shoudl have gotten the pioneers.. the technics weigh in @ 5 pounds!!! so i wouldn't want that kind of pressure on me all the time, especially since i dj for 10+ hours sometimes.. the sennheisers everyone agrees are the best, but just way too damn expensive, so i'd say, get the hdj's, and get that sony idea out of your head, they're garbage.

    I have found coloured velvet cushions for the senheisser, they look very comfortable and fashionable!

    Sennheiser for headphones, Shures for mics.. but I currently have a budget headphone (audio-technica). It's wrecked from abuse and lack of care, though. Oh well.. it's ergonomical from my standpoint and does the job (drumming-wise)

    Technics RP-DH1200

    These headphones are seriously incredible for Mixing, no, they are downright the best; with a comftorable feel, keeping all sound in and everything else out, plug and unpluggable cord and perhaps the most battle resistant and sturdiest build in the buisness, I can seriously say that these puppies are one heck of a good set of headphones!

    No wonder Armin Van Buuren takes them with him wherever he DJ's!



    I still use Technics RP-DH1200 headphones, which are amazing. - Armin Van Buuren - October 02, 2006.


    Oh, and did I mention the greatest and most purest quality of sound you can get right after the Sennheiser HD25, only these where designed specifically for DJ's.

    I have the Sony V700, but am thinking of pulling the plug and getting the Sennheiser HD25s...
