Hi all, just interested to see what headphones people are using nowadays? My old faithfuls decided to pack up on me on Saturday halfway through my mix! I have a spare pair (pioneer hdj1500 off the top of my head) but found them too awkward and too bassy and low. Just interested to see if anyone has any recommendations?

I use Pioneer HDJ-X10 and Audio Technica ATH M50X. I use the Pioneer?s for mixing and the Audio Technica?s for everything else. I find The Pioneer?s to be uncomfortable for long periods of time. The most comfortable pair of headphones I had were Pioneer HDJ-2000.

Yeah, that is what i found with my pioneers they are quite uncomfortable. how did the HDJ-2000 sound? I think my pioneers are pretty old, so could have improved a bit from the pair i own

For Djing I've tried a few pioneers but have always found them to be waaay too bassy and had to return them. I've found that sennheisers tend to be better balanced and the bass doesn't overpower the mids and highs.

For production I use Audio Technica ATH M50 - but again, I actually find those a little bass heavy, so you have to be careful using them if producing - soon as you switch from them to a good set of speakers it's all "where the hell has my bass gone?" haha.

I use Skullcandy Hesh 2, my only pair of headphones to last more than 6 months, 3 years strong currently!

ATH-M50 owner here as well. Got these as a second reference when producing. Think I've had them since 2010.
anywhoo, I had a pair of pioneer hdj-1000 which were really nice sound-wise. Liked the way they felt, too. nice and comfy. Eventually both joints of the cups snapped beyond glue/tape/silicon repair and that was that.
Been using my m50's for mixing. They ARE a bit heavy on the bass but I discovered that if I put them on at a certain angle, I just get the crispness I need to beatmatch.

Currently looking at these:

I have 2 pairs, my AKG's if I need to do any production work on the quiet.

Old pair of Steel Series gaming headphones when I use my controller, they are being held together by prayers and duct tape, but so comfortable, I don't wanna say goodbye yet.

Yeah, that is what i have found with my pioneers too. will have a look at the sennheisers, always seem to get good feedback from other people i've spoken to regarding them

Apologies for the late response been doing a lot of sleeping. If you dislike the bass amount of the HDJ-1500 then anything above that won't be for you. HDJ-2000 HDJ-2000Mk2 HDJ-X7 HDJ-X10. Probably give the whole Pioneer range a miss altogether. I personally like the sound of them.

No problems at all. think I am going to get a set of Sennheiser HD25 Plus. Some of the lads I know have them and say they are a really good set of headphones. It will be into the new year like, thanks to Xmas, NYE, and raves haha

For production, I use AKG K240 MkIIs.

For DJing, well, I haven't DJ'd for a long time, so I don't know what would work for that. Could someone tell me if AKG's would work well in the club?

Looking at the reviews and stuff, it's got my interest. How long have you had them for, Martin? And compared to previous headphones you've had, how would you rate them?

I?m just about to hit that "buy" button. lol!
