How is the Pro DJ100 on comfort. Always was curious about those as a lot of people say they're quite neutral but not that comfy.

they sure seem poor on that aspect, but pads can be easily replaced (at least I think I've read so somewhere), if I'm not mistaken beyer pads fit them quite good

These are more expensive here than in the states and not just because of VAT. 

 

They cost almost £100 here ($160 roughly).

probably you've come across the Brainwavz HM5/NVX XPT100/etc, but if not, they meet all your needs except the DJ rotating cups. Flat response, they are even called the Neutral champs, so it might put you off.

 

For you there is a rebranded version of them, from Jaycar, for under 30 pounds, so they are quite a deal (having in mind the Fischer FA-003 were over 150 pounds)

I couldn't find the Jaycar on Amazon, do they sell that in the US?

more or less. they have their own site http://www.jaycar.com.au and have stores in Australia, UK, and maybe US and Canada (honestly I don't know). they sell those headphones as "Pro Monitor", here: http://www.jaycar.us/productView.asp?ID=AA2065&w=pro+m&form=KEYWORD the price varies according to location, US website sells them for 50 bucks.

 

PS: the UK website is down, apparently

You want the NVX XPT100 for $80. Used to be for sale on Amazon by Sonic Electronix, but not currently. However, you can buy them from Sonic Electronix and I believe that Newegg may carry them as well.

Unlike the HM5/FA-003/Jaycars, the NVX version of this headphone has a flexible headphone. So not DJ rotating cups, but much better for that kind of usage of only wearing one cup/driver. They also come with two styles of leather/pleather (not sure which) pads. But you can order velour pads for them here: http://www.mp4nation.net/brainwavz-hm5-velor-memory-foam-earpad-suitable-for-other-large-over-the-ear-headphones-1pc

I believe your intention was to say headband. it is indeed EXTREMELY flexible: check it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmEV56oU1KE

Just wanted to pop in and say a massive thank you to everyone that helped me out.

 

I ended up purchasing the M40x and so far I absolutely love it. You guys really helped me out and I really appreciate that. Thanks a lot.
