Still really want to hear a pair with the XL pads though, to see what they're like.

The HDJ2000s are decently wide, the problem is depth. I think that in order to get high isolation, they try to press the driver right up against the ear, which is as comfortable as it sounds.

That said, I currently have the B&W P7s, and they have excellent isolation AND deep cups. I think it has something to do with the density of foam used in the cups.

Hopefully Sennheiser gets it right....

 

If Pioneer could thicken the pads used for the HDJ-2000s and ensure the feel remains the same, I'm sure they'll deserve the price they currently command. As it stands, I like the HDJ-1500 a whole lot more. The DJ headphone market is booming, and Pioneer could learn a thing or 2 from its rivals. With that said, I have huge hopes for the next Pioneer HDJ flagship can.

 

The pads for the B&W P7s look really comfortable, although they're probably just as tough to DJ with as with the M-100. I wonder if the XL pads for the M-100s would feel just as comfortable as they look.

I agree, the price of the P7s is painful, but the all metal and leather build makes up for it somewhat: there isn't a single plastic part I can see, inside or out.

 

I can't really test for leakage, but I can tell that for isolation, the HD25 is better than the P7s. I don't have a pair of M100s to compare with though, but if you look on the cups, there are small vents, not sure how those affect leakage/isolation.

I initially did this with my 2000s, by rolling up tissue paper and 'stuffing' the pads. The sound didn't change too much, but it made the pads quite firm and hard, negating the nice memory foam Pioneer have on the 2000s. I might try stuffing them again with some foam perhaps...

 

I'd love to see Pioneer launch an updated HDJ-2500 or new HDJ-3000, they nailed everything else on the 2000s, at least from a DJ perspective. I'm sure Pioneer will come up with some crazy new feature too, maybe a split mode that allows you to cue properly from the new generation smartphone DJ apps?

 

I bet the P7s would be durable enough for DJing! The only problem would be scratching up the lovely leather on the outside of the earcups! :)

Yes, the DJ-market is booming. Everyone claims to have their headphones designed by DJ's for DJ's and still, most of them lack many necessary features of a good DJ-headphone. Build quality is flimsy with cheap plastics used in some key areas that break. Noise isolation is subpar which is really baffling to me, what DJ would design a DJ-headphone that isolates outside noise poorly? I for one, want to protect my hearing as much as possible. So, I hope Sennheiser have really thought what a DJ real DJ needs, rather than what's fashionable and make "DJ-headphones" for the fashion-oriented consumer who want to get that cool DJ-look while listening music with their iPhones and whatnot. 

 

Really looking forward of reviews of HD-8 DJ's with DJ-use in mind!

At one minute in this video the guy says HD7 has more bass than HD8:

I love Head-fi and "researching" audio gear, I never know what to think. :confused_face:

I thought the specs were the same on the HD7 and HD8?? Shoot...I am starting to hate this...

I just got notice that B&H has them in stock, in case anybody wants to get them there.  Selling for MSRP.

post #115 of 903
Someone please post when you find out what stores will be carrying these!

I wonder if the locking 2.5mm iPhone remote cable from the momentum will be compatible, can't think of a reason why Sennheiser would use two different locking 2.5mm designs...

Welcome to Head-Fi... sorry about your sanity.
post #118 of 903
It's funny because every other place mentions that the hd8 has more bass, lower end weight.
post #119 of 903
And campj, I welcome you. I've been here longer and have more posts..wink.gif

I think the video just shows the fatigue of telling the same thing for the umpteenth time.
