Pioneer HDJ-2000 vs Skullcandy Mix Masterpost #1 of 141/24/13 at 6:53pmThread StarterI'm choosing between these two headphones to use for portable use (style did play a part in the choices). I have seen many good reviews on both headphones when it comes to sound quality, and now I just need to compare the two. I would really like to know which has better bass in terms of quality and quantity, that's a big factor for me because its for on the go fun listening. I usually listen to hip hop, a little dubstep recently, and rock. So if anyone has listened to both of these and can help it would be appreciated, thank you

I've only auditioned the Mix Master briefly, but from memory it wasn't quite as bassy as the HDJ-2000 but perhaps flatter since the Pioneer has more of a hump in the midbass.post #3 of 141/24/13 at 8:29pm
Have you considered build quality?
I couldn't quite determine the sound quality of the Mix Masters from a noisy environment at which I auditioned them,
but they felt quite flimsy and squeaky in my hands.
Pioneers are leaps and bounds better in build quality than the Mix Masters.
Lastly, market prices for Pioneer HDJ-2000's are about $215,
as opposed to Skullcandy, which are about $299.
I would easily choose the Pioneer over Skullcandy.

But they do have a lifetime warranty which is great, just wouldn't want to have to use it alot. I think I'll go with the pioneers, I like the new white style they have. Only bad thing about them is the fact that they don't come with a straight cable. Do you know if there are any that you can buy separate, its not a big problem if there isn't.post #5 of 141/25/13 at 12:03ampost #6 of 141/25/13 at 11:05ampost #7 of 141/25/13 at 11:21ampost #8 of 141/25/13 at 5:15pmThread StarterOkay thanks and I have one more question, I have the Sennheiser HD 518's and these are gonna be my upgrade from them to be used on the go cause I feel the 518's are too bulky and the cord is too long. Do the Pioneers have better sound especially when it comes to bass? Just curious.post #9 of 141/25/13 at 5:29pmpost #10 of 141/25/13 at 5:36pmQuote:Originally Posted by TJKuhn

As DJ headphones, the pioneers will have more bass, can't comment on the sound quality though, having never listened to the HDJ2000 or the 518.post #11 of 141/25/13 at 9:42pm
From my experience, the Pioneer HDJ 2000 has average bass.
It has the thump and the punch, but not quite clean.
However, it has very pleasing mids in exchange.
Cannot comment on the 518 as I have not heard them.
If you are looking for portability, bass, and style, however,
I would like to recommend the following cans as well:
HDJ 500 (2000's younger brother. Presumably more refined bass than 2000)
and check out HDJ 2000's bass mod somewhere on this forumpost #12 of 141/25/13 at 10:48pm
That would have been mine...
Actually after changing things around a few times, it's not so much a boost as it flattens out the hump and improves extension.post #13 of 141/26/13 at 4:11amQuote:
I really don't like HDJ-500's comfort, but then again I do hate all on-ears..post #14 of 141/26/13 at 4:48am
I have both. the skullcandy has more bass and is more easily driven from a portable source. the pioneer is actually rather balanced for a dj headphone, sounds great to a headfier, but might be a little bass shy to a basshead
