Pioneer HDJ-2000 - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Thread Starter 

Yea I think I'll do that. I found some posts in DJ forums that said that the HDJ-2000s were very strong on the outside, but had shoddy wiring on the inside. I can't afford that risk with $250 headphones.

 

1st: M50

2nd: ES7

3rd: AD700

 

I'm really looking forward to this ATH triad. It'll end up being cheaper than the Pioneers too! lol

Made in Japan or Made in China?

I own the HDJ-2000's and I'm very happy with them. They have a very pleasant warm sound with good separation and lets face it...they are dead sexy. :)  I don't DJ or anything I just wanted a solid pair of premium headphones.  I mostly use them with my ipod classic in conjunction with a Fiio E7 dac/amp.  My previous headphones were able planet NC300B's and a pair of Ultimate ears super fi. 5 pro's.  But these pioneer's are just so much better they uh..how do you say?....like making the sexy with my ears?  lol j/k but really really nice.  They aren't the neutral lifeless sounding type of phones. But as I said they have nice separation and clarity. They are still fun sounding without losing the fine crystaline details. 

 

My only issue is that when I wear my glasses they push the stems into my head a bit.

Are they on-ear or over ear?

HDJ-2000 are over ear and super comfortable. Contemplating picking up a pair but want to take another listen.

with the m50's you get a much better sound if youre listening to all types of music than the 2000's but you'll always be searching for that extra little bass the 2000's have over the m50's and the m50's earpads wear down in 4 months and become rocks so if you get the m50's id advise buying the shure 840 earpads with them i traded my m50's to my friend for his 2000's because im a dj and i listen to mainly edm and he listens to a lot of rock and metalcore and the 2000's quite frankly sound muddy with rock and metalcore but they lack the low end for edm so its your choice

Iistening experience is that they sounded muddy and have muffed mids. I enjoy both the m50 and UE6000 more. Then again I was listening to them in the food court at the mall and I don't DJ or listen to EDM.

Of course Sennheisers may be indestructible but you would have to have a gun to my head for me to use any of their headphones in a club they all look like crap sound great but look god awful I know sound is the goal here but companies need to take pride in how their product looks aesthetically as well as sound pioneer hdj 2000 are amazing great for beat matching

me too lol, glasses is a killer, i have an mdr-1r right now, their clamping force is really small with soft ear pads, while mine still makes me feel a little sore after 5hours usage, they are so much better than those sennheiser 439, 280, yet mines is still pretty new and hasnt loosen up like the ones at sony store. 

and yeah those hdj-2000 are dead sexy, gonna spend some time with them at best buy

I've had the Pioneer HDJ-2000 for 6 mow.

 

The wearing comfort and build quality of these are top notch. Agree with what someone else said abut the cord not beeing of equally high quality. The cable is a coiled one which is a good choice ( and has saved my laptop from flying of the table many times). Unfortunatelly it is to short for having such stiff flex. I usually have my PC on the bedside table by my feet at night watching some movie. The cable is to short for this. When out walking and playing music from my phone in my pocket the cord is to long...

The way to solve this is ofcourse to use a highly flexible coiled cord of equally high quality as the rest of the Pioneer HDJ-2000.

The cord is detachable and there might be some good aftermarket alternatives to the original although aftermarket coiled cords of high quality are usually hard to come by. 

The earpads and headband are extremely comfy. The headphones stays firmly on my head while walking, bicycling or working without having to much clamping force.

The sound quality is good and I agree with with other people here have said. The only thing that bothers me, and this is for me a dealbreaker, is the bass roll off. HDJ-2000 delivers a good, tight and responsive bass but the volume of the deep bassrange falls off and leaves me wanting a richer sound.

 

The noise isolation could also be a lot better as they do not shut out much of the noise from oter people talking or working in a classroom or office.

 

Buy these in good shape second hand if they fit your needs and taste. They are a very nice pair of headphones but the retail price asked for these is to high in my opinioin.
