Zomo HD-1200 - portable Headphones, also good for DJs

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hey Friends of Hifi Equipment,

My first entry here biggrin.gif Today i will write a little bit about my Headphone Zomo HD-1200. I am a DJ and use this headphone to play at clubs and when i travel on road. This headphone is not only great for DJing, also for regular music listening. My friend have it too and he s no DJ. Also i have the K702 from AKG for my studio, which are crystal clear sounding headphones, very linear, so i am not only used to DJ headphones ;-) i think i know what i am speaking about wink.gif

To the sound of The Zomo HD-1200: the Headphone is very loud, have a nice warm bass with a lot of pressure, hitting mids and clear highs...not too much highs, just right. I can t say more about the sound, everybody feeling different, but i can t complain about anything on the sound.
Why did i buy this headphone:

I was using expensive headphones for years, i had for example the Sony MDR-V700, Pioneer HDJ-1000, Sennheiser HD-25 and some Phillips headphones in last 15 years. All started at 130$.

After all broke after a while (i was djing with them 2-3 times a week), i decided to check out some cheaper ones. 

I bought the HD-1200 2 years ago for about 70$ , they still sound good, and nothing broke yet. The big plus on the Zomo ones is: that you can replace everything, cables, ear pads, ....

So you don t need to buy new ones all the time. A great idea, this feature should have more headphones. Especially the pads have to get changed after a while! 

Comfort: Even here, i can t complain, after DJing or listening of over 4 hours, my ears do not hurt, not because i wasn t listening that loud, some headphones do really put pressure on your ears, like the MDR-V700 for example. No problem with the Zomo. 

 

I don t want to do advertisement, i just want to share my experience, because the headphones are really good! even Beat Magazine from overhere awarded this headphone to the best DJ headphone on the market lol. Great headphone for a cheap price!

 

If you have a dealer in your area, give this headphones a try! 

Please let me know if anybody have questions...

there was no sound on the right side anymore. Even when i changed the cable, i think the problem was in the speaker...

First I thought "Something that trendy looking can't ever sound good!" but then I realized it's probably a rebranded Yoga CD-300.

Now Yoga's getting pretty well known for producing/OEM'ing some outstanding headphones and IEMs (Fischer Audio SBA-line, FA-003, FA-004, FA-006, Brainwavz HM5 among others) so yeah, I can believe these sound great and that you're happy with them compared to the other headphones you owned. Still, HD25-1 II is DJ-king. ;) 

 

EDIT: just saw these come in more conservative colour-schemes as well.

yes they look similar, also the MDR-V700 from Sony looks similar, but the sound is totally different. And some details on the design. Compared to the sound of MDR-V700, the Zomo sounds better. Way more pressure and better room feeling. I think a lot of DJ headphone companies oriented their style on the Sony, because they was very popular. I have both at home, so i tried them all with the same song. Also i have the HD-25 at home, but like i wrote already, there is no more sound coming out of the right earpad :-(

Numark Red Wave

It's no secret Yoga OEMs for a lot of the big brands. I am almost certain that the Numark is a direct Yoga rebrand too. When you look at the Yoga website, they have some more pretty interesting looking DJ headphones.

Anyone know of a brand using this OEM model? Looks quite snazzy. ;)

I think Numark is OEMing that under a new pair, the Electrowave.

Great find! :)

I agree, they sond WAY better than the SONY XB500, with similar bass quantity. Just remove the thick foams covering the drivers and open 1 hole inside each side of the cups for better highs ; )

These Electrowaves sound brigher than the Red Waves, but the treble is very unrealistic. The Red Waves wins hands down in the treble department. I have tested both exhaustively. And now I got the ZOMO HD1200's which have better treble tweaking than the Numarks ; )
