TL;DR version at the bottom.
Hey guys, I've been DJing for about a year now, and am starting to play some gigs. I'm also a very competitive Counter-Strike player.
I previously had the Audio Technica A700 headphones, which died on me recently. They were great for gaming with their positional audio, especially when I used to have my Tascam MK-144 usb interface, I could tell where anyone was and felt like I had sound hacks. The Tascam interface also improved the bass which is generally weak in these cans I hear. I also enjoyed the A700's for sound production with the slight sounds that it can pick up on.
Anyway moving on...
I'm looking for a set of cans that are more suited for DJing, i.e. movable parts for easy one ear use, while playing a gig. The A700's were fixed in place and it was a bit awkward DJing with them, with how large they are. However, I would like to not downgrade too much in positional audio quality for gaming.
With the stuff I've requested which headphones would you guys recommend for me? I've been looking at Sennheiser HD25-1's and also the Pioneer HDJ-2000's. Is there something better for my needs? Thanks in advance guys!!!! <3
tl;dr version: Good headphones for DJing and positional audio for gaming.
