If you want headphones for listening, you will not find anything better than Sony MDR-7506 (the only Sony product I would ever buy) in your price range. They are light, comfortable and you can wear them all damn day without even feeling them. You can also buy replacement ear pads $7/pair.

I also have Senn's HD580. They are nice, but very bulky and the cable that they come with, while replaceable is very thin and VERY expensive to replace.


Also, not many people know, but headphones need to be "broken in". The best way to do that, is to hook them up to a receiver and play white noise through them for about 48-72 hours. They will sound much warmer after that.
Just for listening, you can't beat the sony mdr 7506's. DJ headphones are slightly on the un-comfy side for me at least. Beyerdynamic, AKG, ultrasone and sennheiser are all great brands but idk if they have any under 100. Now the only way to see if you will enjoy any headphone recommended in this thread is by testing them out. What sounds perfect to me or someone else might not sound perfect to you. Go to a guitar center and ask if u can try out a few headphones. They won't say no to you

I bought a pair of Ultrasone DJ1 Pro few years back. They were the most uncomfortable, ill-fitting headphones i have ever seen. Sold them within 2 weeks of getting them.

DJ headphones are pretty heavy-duty and are made to be abused. That makes them pretty heavy. In addition to that, Pioneer and Technics ear cup swivels are pieces of garbage. They are pretty much guaranteed to go first.


This is the place for all your headphone needs:

I have the S4's and love them. They are really comfortable in my ears and provide excellent bass and good mids and highs. A quality product IMO. And at 80 bucks its not a bad deal. Look at reviews, most are very positive.

Beats are by no mean audiophile grade, it is way to bass heavy like all other "consumer grade" headphones. For $200, I would suggest people to take a look at some of the Beyerdynamic headphones. I recently got a Dt-990 (600ohms) for less than $220 on Amazon, too bad they raised the price back up to $300...

Best pair of cans ive ever owned. I wouldnt buy a different pair if my life depended on it. They are super sturdy, long lasting, and they sound amazing. A bit pricey though i guess...

OMFG. Love the Beyerdynamic 770 Pros, haha. Sorry. A little on the pricey side but I love them. This guy knows what's up, the best way to decide on a pair is to try them out in person.

I keep hearing good things about the Klipsch S4's. They can be purchased as low as $49.99 right now on Amazon. As soon as I get back from vacation next week these will be my first purchase.

Bought a pair of these (770 pro) for $120, almost new and have never looked back. Anything else I try sounds worse.

Best bang for buck = Grado SR80

If you're a bass junkie, look elsewhere. Maybe AKG or Sennheiser.

Purchased my DT770s a few months ago and absolutely love them. The build quality of the headset is also better compared with the competition and they are very comfortable, only thing I can't figure out is why they put such a dinky cord with these. I only use them for home listening, so that's not a huge deal, but I loved the heavy duty cord on my Sennheisers

They are the Pioneer ProDJ line, HDJ-2000's

Its made of solid plastic, Aluminum, and Magnesium I believe. This is seriously build like a rock:


Video seriously made me cringe.

There are some videos where people attempt to bend them and break them they are more flexible then you would ever need them to be i think.

and its comfortable, the ear cups are made of memory foam

EDIT: Oh and did i mention the cable is totally replaceable. If you dont like the coiled version of it (The one that comes with it) you can get different ones.

The plug itself is a mini xlr cable.

I personally love them bc well, they sound great, and the design is just so simple and clean.. there's nothing too flashy on them at all, and like BTM said, they're super comfortable. I totally agree on the cord thing, but hey, I'm honestly not TOO worried about it.

anyone have shure cans? i have a pair of the inner-ear headphones (se210) and they are great. I'd like a good pair of cans though. The pioneer cans (se-mj5) I have been using (got for free) are not comfortable at all after 20 minutes and dont sound very good either.

HDJ2000's are some of the flattest headphones I've used.
