Pretty much. I don't have the TB version but I have a DJ100 and a DJ200 now. They sound the same or at least close enough that I wouldn't be able to tell them apart by sound. I can tell them apart physically because the cables feel different when suspended from my left ear.

ProDJ is a good gaming headphone. About 1/3-1/2 of the time I've spent with mine they've been plugged into either my 3DS or my Vita. Everything that makes them good for vocals makes them good for dialog. Better than the KRKs, even (and a little easier to drive, too). It's also more comfortable with the M50 pads than the gaming-labeled headphones that I've owned (couple of Logitech and an expensive Turtle Beach with it's own amplifier).

Add a V-MODA BoomPro mic to a DJ200 or TBSE1 and you get a great voice chat headset.

They should experiment and make a fully open headphone with it's driver, but somehow figure out a way to keep the DJ100s bass or get close. Probably impossible.

 

Have you tried the Koss UR-40?  it's a semi-open design and far more comfortable than my DJ200s.  The build quality is not as good as the DJ200 and I would say the sound is not as precise as the DJ100/200/TBE, but in terms of comfort and lightness they are great.  I paid $29 CDN on sale and they caused me to later buy the DJ200, also on sale for $75; I have absolutely no regrets with either purchase.  I found this thread when i was searching to see if anybody else was as impressed as me with these unknown (to me) DJ200s.  The M50 pad swap is next.  I guess that makes me a fan.

To attach M50 pads, just hold them in place against the cup and work your way around and stuff the edges of the pad into the "cracks". It's way easier than it sounds.

I can now do it easily in less than 30 seconds for each side.

 

I wonder if "Tuesday Morning" US stores still have the TB version for $50. That's where I got mine. I still would like to try the DJ200 just to know for what what it's like.

My last few DJ100s or TBs did not need any burn in at all. I guess I was lucky or something! I've had a couple that didn't sound great out of the box. I guess it's because it's a titanium driver and needs to break in. One time I ever had two to compare at the same time.

 

Burn in time is so weird because i've never had a headphone require more than a week of use. Even my K702 and Q701s sounded great out of the box.

 

Still wish Koss could do a major redesign of this to get rid of the round shape and be a little more comfortable stock. Maybe a less portable design or something.

Thank you so much for your help and insight tdockweiler! If ever Pulitzer prizes were given out for headphone reviews/insight/help, you should be the next recipient!

Also thanks to waynes world. Much appreciated.

 

Well I now have only about 3-4 hours of use on my DJ100's and I would say that the honky/canned sound is now gone. Amazing how that happens and so fast eh? 

I am flabbergasted by the quality of sound that these el cheapo cans produce. I can understand any of you who say they would choose the 100's over the M50. Or even HD600!

I have an HD600 and I will have to pit the 100 against it when more break-in of the 100's has occured. But I just couldn't imagine the 100's winning out over the 600. That was Senns flagship phone awhile back. It would just be wrong for a $500.00 (cdn) headphone to beat a $100.00 headphone, right? 

Do either of you gents prefer the 100 over the 600? Nope, can't be. It just ain't right! Tell me it ain't true!!

Ha! You'll want to stay away from the Mikros 90 thread if you want to stay away from cheap headphones that seriously threaten much more expensive headphones :)

 

But Koss sure seems to be pretty good for producing some giant killers (DJ100's, KSC75's, Portapro's).

Those things are butt ugly I could never buy them. That and the NAD Visio are the only headphones I hate aesthetically.

Have any of you taken your DJ100's out for a walk or on public transit?

If so, what are the reactions from others? Especially the Beats fans?

"No bass."

 

That's it.

Yep. Nobody ever comments on anything else.

Amazing!! I guess midrange and treble means nothing to these people. As long as they hear/feel that boom, boom, boom that's all that matters.

We should feel sad for them. Let us join in prayer...

Ha yeah, only had one person impressed with my HD558's, as soon as my friend brought the on-ear momentum people were like WOW THE BASS IS SO GOOD.

Yeah, see, that's why if someone asked to try mine -- not that anyone has but if -- I probably wouldn't play for them what I was playing for me. I'd switch over to one of my reference tracks. To wit, "Big Gun" by Ice-T. Not my usual fare but it has an amazing bass line.

I have a HD600. An early one at that, had it for years. I do prefer my DJ100 and DJ200 but not for the reason you might think. Which is that HD600 is COMPLETELY USELESS on the subway.
