I'm looking for some DJ headphones..
I've found these brands in the area: Pioneer, Sony, and Sennheiser

 

Pioneer: HDJ-500 and HDJ-1500

Sony: MDR-V55

Sennheiser: HD25-SP, HD205, HD215, HD280

 

At least these were the ones the store framed as DJ Headphones. To my understanding DJ headphones are suppose to be quite durable, have powerful sound performance and able to have excellent bass when needed, great mids and sparkling highs when needed and not have one bloat all over the other or any of them being veiled.

 

The HD25-SP and the HDJ-1500 is the most expensive at the 200-230 mark.

The V55 is at 70, the HDJ-500 is just below 100.

The HD205, HD215, HD280 is at 150. 

 

With that understanding: Which one will be the best bang for buck? Which of them is the best DJ oriented headphones? Or are there any other recommendations?

I'd see if I could find a beat up pair of HD-25's for about $120-$150.

I sometimes get a bit impatient, so I saw those at the stores and just went hmmm how do these measure up.

Yep I definitely will. Looking forward to Phantom Pain.

 

So seriously no one likes these particular DJ headphones? Or basically no one buys DJ headphones?
