The 181djs are the best. I've been a dj for 10 years. An audiophile/fanatic for my whole life. Aside from what I've listed as headphones I own or have owned, I've also been thorough a number of half a grand iems and 10 pairs of the most worn dj headphones. I got the dj 181s three years ago. Since then I've been through too many headphones, and have always returned back to the 181s. Whether I'm mixing or listening to music, these do it right. They can be pushed loud and don't distort like some of the other headphones. And of course these sound great. Great mid bass, great sub bass, great highs and not sharp. More on the warmer side than sharper side. The other headphones I've listed just are too soft or too boring. I listen to everything. And I also have an affinity towards good house music. Not that edm crap. What the hell...the term edm is a fraud. Good high quality produced house. Whether its mixing or listening, these cans somehow are still being used over the majority of my other cans.
I'm kind of interested how long you've had these. I own them too, and the audioquality seems to be fading, I just don't know whether the worn pads, broken cable or perhaps the drivers themselves are to blame here.
