When I had these for about a week, I found that the velour pads sounded a lot cleaner and got rid of some mid-bass hump, not sure if others experienced the same. They weren't fully burnt in, but switching the pads made a big difference, especially on bass heavy music that featured vocals.
Ultimately I had to return them due to the price, but I imagine these will be a lot more popular once the price climbs down (if it ever does), as if anyone can recall, the Pioneer HDJ-2000 were something like $500/600 when they first launched, because: magnesium

I'll agree with that. $400 is chump change to spend on a pair of headphones as a working dj.

especially when you know that they will not break. They are built like a tank...;p for me This is a good investment for years.
 

@grizzlybeast you want to sell them? or you have already changed your mind?

To be honest though I have some qualms about them, they are their price. besides balance alot of things are just as good as the spirit pro but these have a way better build, aesthetics, and features. Quote:

I took the fs down to enjoy them but if someone wants them I can sell them. I have no reserves either way there. 

edit... I may keep them.. the velour pads look, and feel better

I had a lot of dj headphones, many I've used at parties from friends (many of them, even the expensive ones broke after a year).

These look for the most durable and have the best isolation and the sound is really very good. next Saturday I'll check them at the party in the club with a large sound system...

...and Velour will be for a special occasion.

btw....How many hours do you propose to "burn" them (that they were fully warmed up)

?

@oregonian if u ever want to hear these to scratch an itch of curiosity let me know.

If that treble dip were fixed these would be better

They turned out not to be too difficult to put back together although the soldering it a bit fiddly as they have lost of extra wires to support the dual sided entry. Here is a pic of the test pair I have done - I was not brave enough to paint the hinges but the rest of it went without any major issues

@jfunk - these look cool!

Unfortunately my HD8 will definitely go back - mostly because of comfort issues. Although the pads are great, the headband is the problem - after one hour my head is hurting on top. I just can't get the headband to a comfortable position without loosing isolation.

Today or tomorrow I should get my SHR1540 - hopefully they're better not only in this department (although I don't expect better bass, which is almost superb on the HD8).

how are the hd6 for mixing? i remeber the first few reviews said they were a pretty bad choice.

 

any review say differently?

?Any ideas when these will be floating around on the market

If anyone could help me out here that would be great!

I'm having a real hard time deciding whether or not to get the HD8 or the HD 25 II, I want the best one for DJing/producing electronic music, I would love what you guys think,

Cheers

post #614 of 1097
just try both and decide.

The HD8 isn't out in my country yet, also there is about a 100$ price difference. I called up some of my local DJ stores and they said they haven't recieved any info of the HD8 but the 25's have been a solid headphone & they recomended them, 

but after seeing Linus's review on these I think I'll get them, also they seem a great headphone for movies/games ect..
