Headphones

llasher 2:53 AM - 1 May, 2007
This probably is not as big a deal as I'm making it out to be, but I stumbled on something that I'm surpised no one seems to have mentioned. I had been using the Bose Q2 Noise Cancelling Headphones for traveling, etc. I decided to try them out for a gig, since they come with a stereo jack adapter. I was pretty blown away with how well it blocked out everything except what I was mixing. I was actually able to turn my headphone volume down, which obviously isn't a bad perk for my ears. Granted, they are a bit pricey, but if you have a pair you should try it out. Hate to sound like an infomercial, but I don't think I'll be using anything else and they are by far the best headphones I've used...

do they pack away pretty nicely (fold/collapsable)
Nicky Blunt 12:19 PM - 1 May, 2007
have a link to them anywhere?
DjSummit 1:07 AM - 2 May, 2007
I've started using earphones.. i can say.. that it is not for everyone but once you're used to them it makes traveling with your headphones 100 times easier.... I have the Shure E4's and e5's.. the e5's are the best but i think the e 4's fit better... I've also used the bose triport earphones... they're great for the money .. but dont work as well as the shures'
DJFunk 6:00 PM - 2 May, 2007
I use the JVC HA-NC100 noise canceling head phones that also fold up and have a retracting 60-inch cord. They work pretty well under super loud places. I payed about 79 bucks, but i like'em. The part that sucks about them is that after an 4-7hr Gig, the battery wears out. Yea, it takes just one little AAA, but after a month worths of batteries, the price can add up in a yr. I guess the louder it is, plus the length of the gig can wear out the battery faster than i thought. After all they are made for plane rides with mid-low noise. I make them work HARD!

I rock with the Technics DJ-1200's. I can't hear a damn thing with those things on!
Evil_banana 12:10 PM - 10 May, 2007
Same thing for My Sennheiser HD25-13. Playing at a bar, I once accidently pushed the reverse-button on the fader, music stopped, but I was still freaking out prelistening on my headphones. Didn't notice the music stopped untill I saw everybody looking at me :oD. I was like "What's the problem, this song is rocking!?" ... until I took off the headphones.

They are very well Isolated.
swavek 1:14 PM - 12 May, 2007
If someone's into noise calcelling headphones, check this one out:

earplugstore.stores.yahoo.net

way cheaper than Bose, similar specs, fold real well - but I only use them for travelling, in the end. no matter what I tried (and I tried 'em all) - I always go back to my good ole DJ-1200's and the unique way in which they swivel (which to my astonishment Technics abandoned in their latest incarnation).

i loved my pio's until the swivel socket thing broke on one side. they're good phones.
i now have the sennheiser HD25's-- sound awesome but the cord doesn't stretch! sounds like a small detail but it's huge! i'll bend over or turn around to get some vinyl and rip the cord out of the mixer and shit. plus they cost more than the pios.

Evil_banana 12:09 PM - 22 May, 2007
the HD25 are solid as a Rane :o). I've been abusing mine for about 5 or 6 years and they still kick ass, great sound and everything is in good shape, nothing broken off or anything. Just had to replace the cord and the earpads (NOT the speakers) about a month ago since they were worn out. But the nice thing about Sennheiser is that you can replace all parts. Went to a shop where they had it in stock, bought a new cord and earpads. Cost me about 30 euros and 2 minutes to replace both (it's just plug n play) and I'm good for another 5 years.
Evil_banana 12:11 PM - 22 May, 2007
(Besides, they are the only headphones that stay on my head without moving, even while headbanging... my crowd likes heavy rockstuff from time to time :oP. It's like they are glued to the head)

Sennheiser HD-25 (preferably the german ones) As has been mentioned, 5 years of DJing hasn't wrecked them. I used to go through a couple of pairs a year (and a lot of solder) before I coughed up for a decent pair.
WarpNote 11:30 PM - 25 May, 2007
-Had the Sony MDR-V700DJ, great sound but the plastic hinge broke..

-then switched to Sony MDR 7506, not to bad sounding, virtually unbreakable, but got stolen :-( I think they are comparable to Audio Tehcnica ATH-PRO5 MS ?

-then went with Denon DN-HP1000, great sound powerful sound, but the plastic broke again (trying to get a replacement for them) Also, I think Audio Technica ATH-PRO700 SV are identical to these ?

-also been using the Technics RP-DJ1210 a lot, quite pleased with them too.

-now getting Sennheiser HD25, but I'm not to optimistic about that non-streching cord, anyone know if there are strech cord replacements available for the hd25's?
Alixx J 5:14 PM - 26 May, 2007
Just get a good quality coiled extension lead for your 25s, thats what i did and totally solves the problem. Not one complaint, apart from they could look a bit sexier, but the main thing is that they sound awesome and go forever.

My last pair were the new technics, they lasted me 4 months, the audio cord went loose inside the headband, cutting off the sound in one ear and as i got them off ebay, no warranty and to get a repair, they said i needed to replace the headband for 100 pounds, as the wire inside could not be replaced. No chance of that, so i bought sennheisers

I use my Sony MDR-v700's alot.. but when im performing I use shure or m-audio in-ear monitors.
Nicky Blunt 2:01 PM - 29 May, 2007
hd25's are the shit! Im currently using the RP-DJ1210 but at the end of the month pay day will be going back o hd25s!

Unfadable baby! Had a pair of these b4 & had them stolen & had to get new ones for a gig so just bought the best available at the time but now imma get the hd25's again as I loved them dearly & was gutted to have them pinched.
SUBSTANCE 9:53 PM - 30 May, 2007
We use the HD-25's for television work because they are just that good as reference monitors.
You can get replacement cords easy, I'm sure Sennheiser do a long bungy cord that will fit. I personally really like the short 1.5m cable that comes with it. Especially now that I don't have to reach around the booth for 'real' records.
digital_steve 12:31 AM - 31 May, 2007

Loud, sound great and completely modular.

frost-9 9:21 AM - 2 October, 2007
Most comfortable I've ever used are the MDR-V700's. If you gig a lot, you'll probably have to replace them about every two years...
They last longer for some people than others. I'd say I'm pretty middle of the road when it comes to putting wear and tear on them. Just bought my third pair last week. They sell for less than $100 in a lot of places. Paying $100 for headphones every 2 years is worth it in my book.
dj disturbed 10:50 AM - 2 October, 2007
yeah i love my MDR-V700..... but they arnt that comfy when worn for a long time... but i moved over to in-ear monitors when giging. I can wear one side in one ear all night long and forget its there.

before I had my HDJs I would use the 1000s mix with my volume at 2, my ears would hurt so I turn down to 1 that wasnt too comfortable so I would switch to the 500s feel better then complain now that Ive got my HDJs no complaints at all

exactly! technic dj-1200's are club deejay headphones only...the loudness of them makes it nice when you play on stage and right under the main speakers rather than in a booth that has some isolation. i don't think there is a more durable and loud set of headphones on the market, but they are heavy as shit and you could never use them for monitoring. i mean i swear that the weight of the technics makes you drop them more becausue they fall off your head more or whatever.

so my question for everyone out there...what are the best deejay/monitoring headphones if you already have a pair that will work in a loud club???

my sony 700 work great in loud conditions, but my m-audio SE-10's in-ear monitors work the best b/c they block out more ambiant sound, meaning i dont have to run them a loud to hear them in louder enviroments, saving my hearing a little more (BTW i leave one side out to monitor the booth/stage monitor and/or club system). on my sony's i have to turn the vol on the headphones up quite high sometimes, but in the club i dont have to turn the headphone vol up very much at all when i use the in-ear monitors and can hear them even better then any other headphones i have used.
Nicky Blunt 10:52 AM - 21 February, 2008
yo disturbed were they expensive!!!
dj disturbed 2:54 PM - 21 February, 2008
my SE-10s were $99, now let me warn you, in-ear monitors sound like CRAP IF YOU DONT LEARN HOW TO FIT THEM INTO YOUR EAR CORRECTLY. The sound of them depends on the how well they male a seal in your ear, But once you learn to put them in right, then you can do it with no issue at all. I will recommend the Shure series over the m-audio but they are both good, and also the Ultimate Ears ones are great too (the m-audio ones use Ultimate Ears drivers in them, but are not as god as the Ultimate Ears brand ones themselves). the low end of both of them is $99 and go up to the high end of them being %600-$800 (or if you get custom fit ear pieces, the price can fo into the $1000's.... But the low end of them can also be used with custom done ear-pieces)

not too bad. i'd say on the headphone weight scale they are about a medium. but you can tell they are quality. i've had mine for 6 years now and they have held up to many club gigs as well as almost daily use at the house and still sound and look essentially like new. will be the last set of cans you buy...

Sony MDR-V700


i beg to differ on this as i've actually owned 3 pairs of the 700s in the time that i've owned my 900s. the sound on the 700s is not too bad (still suboptimal when compared to the 900). but the main problem IMO is that they break pretty easily. i've had the head band break as well as the ear pieces break off...from seemingly just normal wear and tear. the last pair i had was actually stolen from one of our gigs...and i really wasn't all that mad about it. if you are going to buy the 700s...knuckle up a few more bucks and just get the 900s...well worth the extra chedda.
Dj Koppa Top 11:26 AM - 5 March, 2008
the mdr v700 look so cool and like the standard for headphones. but they do break after some time. they are delicate. i got 5 years out of my pair didn't use much for 1 year.
360MIX 1:13 AM - 6 June, 2008
Sony MDR-V900 are my favorite.. Only thing I don't like is that you cant replace the Earpad (approx 5 years of continues use they get a bit flat) I have heard all the Sony and that is the best one for my style of mixing.

The weak part of the Pio & Denon seems to be the plastic part that often break. I won't put so much money for this result.
The HD25 seems to have a lot of vote here.

-Had the Sony MDR-V700DJ, great sound but the plastic hinge broke..

-then switched to Sony MDR 7506, not to bad sounding, virtually unbreakable, but got stolen :-( I think they are comparable to Audio Tehcnica ATH-PRO5 MS ?

-then went with Denon DN-HP1000, great sound powerful sound, but the plastic broke again (trying to get a replacement for them) Also, I think Audio Technica ATH-PRO700 SV are identical to these ?

-also been using the Technics RP-DJ1210 a lot, quite pleased with them too.

-now getting Sennheiser HD25, but I'm not to optimistic about that non-streching cord, anyone know if there are strech cord replacements available for the hd25's?

Had the Sennheiser HD25 now for a year, so far they've been very good to me, not going to get anything else anytime soon. Never got around to get the spiral cord though, haven't really been missing that cord as much as I thought I would...

I love my DNHP1000's and when I'm feeling adventurous I use my M-Audio IE-10's. Those things block out everything. Cost 100 bucks retail (I paid 60 with my employee discount) and also work great with my ipod. Definitely reccomned both these 'phones.

anyone using Shure or Ultimate ears inner ear buds?
thinking of thinking of getting the UE3 or UE4, getting tired of bulky dj headphones that break at the joints (no matter how careful you are with them).
