What are the best DJ headphones?
Well that depends on you and how you use it. Here is a video showing some models of the best DJ headphones around:
Some of the best DJ headphones review;
Denon DN-HP700, Sony MDR-V700DJ, Denon DN-HP1000, Pioneer HDJ-1000, Sennheiser HD25, Allen & Heath Xone XD-53.
There are other DJ headphones which are not listed here like from Technics, Shure etc., which can also be considered as the best DJ Headphones.
But I will not list them all for there is too many.
There is a couple cheap sets below which I consider pretty good which have not been shown on the video:
One of the cheapest but high quality headphones are the Behrhinger High-Definition DJ Headphones HPX2000 and the Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones
I recommend them for any DJ who is trying to set up a system on a low budget.
The only problem about these, is the noise isolation, which is not so good.
Ok, so probably the best DJ headphones are:
The Allen Heath Xone XD 53 Professional Monitoring Headphones .
And also as one of the best DJ headphones Pioneer HDJ-2000
What Makes The Best DJ Headphones For DJ’ing?
It’s very important to point out here that above everything else, headphone choice is extremely subjective and down to personal preference. The quality headphones I love, may not necessarily be the best ones for you. However, there are a few things that all good headphones need to have in common.
- Sound Quality: For obvious reasons, you need your headphones to sound good, especially when reproducing highs and lows as this is what will greatly assist you with your beat matching.
- Build Quality: Headphones are heavy duty built. They get twisted around your head, shoved in bags, dropped, pulled hard by the cable, pull on and off very quickly. If the build quality of the headphones is not good, then they will not last you very long, regardless of how good they sound.
- Isolation: Your headphones need to block out surrounding noise so your can hear what is going on inside them. This is one of the key features of a pair of DJ headphones as opposed to say some audiophile ones.
- Comfort: Obviously, if you end up DJ-ing for a long period of time, you’ll be wearing your swivel headphones for most of the time. So you want something comfortable, otherwise you may end up with a sore head.
As long as the DJ headphones you choose have these four features, they should be the best DJ headphones to your liking.
However, you should ALWAYS go and check them out in a store before you buy them.
Or if there is pair at a friend’s or somewhere at work then you can safely order it online as you know what you are going to buy.
