These are just a few of the many headphones on the market. When you begin your research look at some of these brands, Sennheiser, Sony, AKG, Shure, Audio-Technica, Denon, Technics and more.
DJ headphones offer good sound, durability and comfort. Depending on your skill level and if you are gigging or not you can stray away from "DJ" headphones.
A great entry level pair of cans, has good bass and swivel ear pieces, a significant step from your i-pod headphones.
AKG K 81 DJ 65$
Another cheap but great pair of headphones with full bass, great response and very comfortable. Have great ambient noise isolation and sound fantastic.
Sony MDR-V700DJ 140$
A step up in price, the V700s are fantastic. They sound good and are comfortable and rugged, perfect for gigging DJ.
My favorite pair of headphones for DJ's, they have excellent sound and fit amazing. They are closed headphones but personally thats not a problem for me.
Studio Headphones offer a clear and flat sound. With good response and great sound they let you accurately mix your tracks and get the best sounding music.
Shure SRH240 70$
The low end of the price range, these cans offer a good and neutral sound. A great pair of introduction level closed ear studio cans.
A great set of headphones that offer fantastic sound quality and are really comfortable. For the price, these headphones are a steal.
Getting into the middle price range, these too offer excellent sound quality without breaking the bank. A great intermediate level headphone for production and studio work.
DENON AH-D2000 350$
In the higher end, These cans are great! Their sound is clear and full allowing you to precisely mix and master to a professorial level. There are nicer versions of these headphones made by Denon, take a look at the whole series.
Lots. there are a ton of headphones. Depending on what is important for you, good sound, lots of bass, cool looking, etc. there are so many options. as long as you like what you pick, they are good.
Don't necessarily go for the most popular brand or coolest one ( unless thats important to you :/ ), look online for reviews and find the best ones for you. How often you plan to use them (durability) should be considered and for how long (comfort). Your environment and situation is important too as you might want to look into noise canceling headphones which are great for travel or if your looking for some peace of mind.
I'm going to start posting music daily, and i'm thinking i will throw in a short review or some piece of gear on each post. comment if you like the idea!
Remember these are just a few, make sure to look around and do your own research. You can use this as a basis for your research as several of these models have lower/higher priced and better versions. There are tons of headphones on the market and a lot of good ones. Hope I helped someone, Thanks follow and comment!
Long post to make up for my absence.
