Inexpensive neutral DJ cans?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I remember reading about a pair of inexpensive DJ cans with rather neutral characteristics a while back. Even a graph indicating the same. Now I've looked over the JVC, Technics, Pioneer and Panasonic line but none seem to match. Am I misremembering or what?

Most DJ headphones are tuned to have a lot of bass and a lot of isolation so you can hear them over the loudspeakers. Im not sure you want a neutral DJ can if your playing shows. I haven't heard them, but some DJs use the Sennheiser HD25, which has a good reputation around here...

I wont be using them for actual DJ'ing, rather tracking with my band. Hmm, I remember a discussion in Amazon user reviews about the model I'm thinking of where some mentioned lack of bass, another user argued about the accuracy of the bass. Does this ring any bells EYEdROP?

The AKG K81DJ's are fairly neutral and inexpensive. Is that what you're thinking of?

It was the Denon DN-HP1000! They're slightly more than I can afford right now since I'd need to pick up a bunch. I wonder how the DN-HP500 and DN-HP700 compare.

why not m50's? They are monitoring headphones, which is what youll be using them for and not djing.

Monitoring? Where did you get that from?blink.gif

Maybe I'll just pick up a bunch of Senn HD202's and call it a day. They're not extremely colored except for a little mid honk and dirt cheap.

Get the DJ1 Pro they sounds pretty balance to me.

There's the Koss Pro DJ100 for $80.

 

With proper amping it's balanced sounding to me. It's focus is on mids, then bass and then treble.

 

No frequencies jump out at me really despite the forward mids. It's definitely not bass heavy.

The Sennheiser HD 448 are very neutral and are less than 100 bucks. Isolation is quite good and have an overall good sound, if bass lacking.

How about the Sony MDR-V6's, amp them correctly and they will shine! Plus they fold up!

I'm covered as far as that goes, just looking for some reasonable cans to hand my band mates while we're laying down tracks.
