Does anyone know if these are any good? It'd be nice not to worry about getting my Sony's mixed up with some dude's stinky pair.

The dude makes it so easy that I started thinking why nobody thought about this before?
Expensive shit but I would love to give it a try!

Isn't that basically a stereo widener/narrower?! Shouldn't you just be able to put a plug that serves that purpose at the end of your headphone/monitor bus?

so yeah what is this nonsense? I will just pan stereo channels and phantom center of my mix in ableton for free to "match my monitors"?

what a shit

oh btw here are my studio monitors lul

Re: Headphones

i had sony MDR v500 for DJing till sometimes ago, they broke. (not a good time for gear around me... everything gets broken) i really like the MDR 500, but it seems they don't around anymore, at least not here.
checked siennheiser HD 205 but it doesn't feel comfortable. the Sony MDR 700 and the Technics are to expensive.

Re: Headphones

I stick with Pioneer HDJ-1000 for DJ use. They are solid, but not to comfy wearing for longer sets, but at least better than the HD25 hehe smile.... I have experienced that 1-2 times a year the small brackets holding the cup tightly in place tend to break and as a consequence make the cup hang loose... They are easy to replace, but way to expensive considered its just a small piece of plastic.... Someone should consider making this sparepart in metal..

In the studio, for ultimate listening joy, restoration and mastering reference, noise analyzis etc. i use the Gradolab Grado PS1000. The reflections and authentic reliability is stunning beyond.

Re: Headphones

a friend dj offering barely used pioneer hdj 1000 for less then half their price. not sure what the story is, he prolly bought too many records this month to pay the rent. they seem to sound nice, but wearing them for an hour is a pain.. hmm. can be ok for djing - headphones off and on for a longer time, right?

yeah they are very nice for djing, not too heavy and sound good, but they are not very sturdy and can break easily, especially the plastic that holds the headphone. mine broke while i was holding them in my hands doing nothing, just like that. so i gave them to my friend and bought technics.

Re: Headphones

Galliano, how do those sound?

Do it your way, because everyone else is just weird.

there are chinese exact copies of these on the market, so be careful tongue

Re: Headphones

nah, if you mean this sort of thing http://s60.radikal.ru/i169/0910/a3/579e5f398a42.jpg they're not really exact.

Re: Headphones

I'm looking for something to replace my HD-201s for home listening (and also fiddling around with my filez in Ableton).

Seems like the Sennheiser HD-20X are really my price range.  Do they really improve much at you go from 201 to 205-II or whatever it is?  How about the 400 series?  Will I notice a big improvement if I move up to those  (Keep in mind that some of my filez are flacs and wavs that I have started buying not too long ago  tongue )  Are you just paying for more isolation with the HD-4XX's?  What do you guys think about the Grado SR60i/80i?

Thanks!

Re: Headphones

I'm looking to buy new headphones in the 1300kr range (give or take some kr) I'm no dj so only for music listening at home, + some games and a bit of Ableton.

https://www.dlxmusic.se/produkter/horlurar

Sony MDR7506
Audio-Technica ATH-M50X
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 ohm
Sennheiser - HD25

or none of above?

Re: Headphones

Do you need them to be closed design? I can not speak for other models, but I use both Beyerdynamic DT 770 and DT 990 for work and at home. DT 770 are great for isolating outside noise but can be a bit tiresome after long sessions and they can sound a bit boxy because of the design. DT 990 on the other hand sound very natural and I love them, just don't use them in a noisy environment since they are as open designed as it gets.

Re: Headphones

No need to be closed design! I want good sound and I want them to be comfortable even after long sessions!
I'm used to have cheap headphones so some built quality would also be nice.

Ok DT 990! Do you have 250 Ohm version?
If so, can you use them (play loud) with a smartphone?

Re: Headphones

I use my DT 990 the 250Ohm version almost daily for more than 5 years and I never had a single issue with them. To me they are very comfortable. I might change the cushions in some time since they got a bit flat, but they are still soft.

I think they can play loud enough from the standard phone, but I guess that really depends on the phone's amp. The 80Ohm version would do better in terms of loudness for sure, but there is some fidelity to be sacrificed. I'd suggest going to the shop with your phone and test it right there.

Re: Headphones
