Best Dj headphones

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
hello there!
My Sennheiser HD 202 was broken and i must buy something new..
My question is especialy for Dj's, what could you recommend me?

Allen Xone XD 53? Shure 750dj? Audio-Technica? AKG?

My headphones will be purchase for future so they should be strong and solid.. Of course they should have good sound quality too!

I heard that big bass (Shure 750dj) it's not prefferd to professional Djing in the club, is that true? Now I'm DJ only in my room, but in near future i will start doing it at clubs..

And sorry for my English

Greetings
Paul

+1. Though I've also heard good things about the Shure DJ line (and want to try them out to compare to my DJ1-Pro's).

Now don't diss me on this i'm only saying. The new beats by dre Spins look like the most durable set i have seen. not to sure about the sound quality tho, but if you looking for durability they do look quite strong

Another vote for the Sennh's...in this case for the Sennheiser HD 280 Pro's. Great performers for dj and monitoring.

I heared that HD25 are solid but they have poor sound quality And they are very loud and low isolation level. It's that true?

Not sure about the SQ, but doesn't the HD25 have one of the best isolation? That's what I ready, anyway.

I'd go for something like the HD25s.

I recently did a gig with my SRH-750DJs and realised that they distorted quite easily on higher volume levels (had earplugs in don't worry). They're great headphones for mixing in your home and they sound fantastic. Probably not a good club headphone. Also, they're not really that bassy. Something about alot of people here i've noticed is that a tiny bit of a bass is too much for them.

I had Pioneer HDJ-1000s and they are fantastic for gigs. They're lightweight, sound is bassy (you actually do want bass for gigs) and have a very high tolerance to distortion. They do however break easily.

If you have money to burn, i'd go for Ultrasone DJ1Pros/Pioneer HDJ-2000s.

A&H XD53 were my favorites up until they were stolen. I still use my Technics DH1200 today for DJ use, the heaviest of my bunch but the most durable. I also had Sony MDR-V700(broke), Pioneer HDJ-1000(broke), and Shure 750DJ(didn't fit).

Lately, I've been bumming my buddy's Pioneer HDJ-2000 for gigs and I found them to have the best sound of the DJ cans I've used. These are really *uckin nice set of cans, much clearer than the XD53, punchy bass, and very good isolation. Look into them
