  • Summary: My first and only high quality headphones. I use it at home for listening to music, home mixing, gaming and watching movies, but I use it with my iPod as well in the street, at public transport, etc. I wanted something at a reasonable price, suitable for home listening and mixing (mainly goa trance, chillout, trip hop).
  • Pros: Great for electronic music, for amateur mixing, affordable price, closed build, suitable for street use as well, highly sophisticated visual design
  • Cons: The cable lock could be tighter

Mighty headphones

  • Excerpt: Great bass, comfy, the headphones exude style and quality and they sound great off an ipod or a dedicated setup. Sound is muddy compared to higher end audiophile grade headphones but these sound quite nice for urban music. They are my fav portable cans . Plus they have 2 interchangeable cables that are nicer than the shure 840s system i looked at.
  • Pros: Bass, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
  • Cons: Little muddy, Tad flimsy

  • Excerpt: These Heaphones suprised me, as in quality and the sound. the sound is really good it has good bass and the highs and mids are right where they should be since I am a Dj. They are great for listening to your personal music as well. They were kind of tight at first but give it a couple of wears and they will get more comfortable. Overall pioneer did a great job with these and they look really nice in white.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Good price value
  • Cons: Kind of tight at first

Very Cool

  • Excerpt: I've DJed for many, many years and needed some new headphones for my mobile system and these work pretty good. Very stylish and light. Only negative is they don't fold up like my old Sony Studio Monitors that I've used for years and they don't have a carrying case. Other than than they sound great and look very cool in white similar to Dre's Beats.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound

  • Summary: After having these DJ headphones for about a month, I can see I'm fairly impressed despite the fragile appearance and the frequency response graph. UnEQ'd, mids and trebles will be slightly veiled(take it with a grain of salt) due to the bassy sound signature of these headphones; they are for DJ's after all, not studio use. The response is far better than when they were out of the box though. Rock: These are..
  • Pros: Durability, looks, bass response
  • Cons: Muffled mids and highs(depends on eq), white one will stain.

  • Summary: GREAT BASS ON A BUDGET Pioneer HDJ-500 review   (NOTE: this is a review of the HDJ-500, not the HDJ-500K. The difference is that the K model has a smartphone compatible 1 m cable to receive calls). Bass-head headphones are the most prominent models in the market today but unfortunately, as most of us know, a number of this bassy headphones while offering plenty of low end thump, the bass is simply bloated and not good.
  • Pros: Plenty of tight punchy bass, great looks, detachable cables, very affordable, comfortable, right cup swivels, wide soundstage.
  • Cons: Plasticky and squeaky, recessed and grainy mids, loose cable lock, not collapsible.

  • Summary: I was rather disappointed when these arrived today, as a DJ who relies on mids and highs just as much as lows I wasn't very happy with the overall sound of these. I expected, for the price tag, a little more clarity. Instead I feel I ended up paying an extra £40 just to have the brand tattooed across the top of, what are, quite attractive headphones. My studio headphones are ATH-M50's and for DJing I had previously been using a useless pair of £15 Sony's from Argos..
  • Pros: Fairly good looking
  • Cons: Muffled mid-highs, high price tag for sound quality

  • Excerpt: I use it as a amateur deejay for house party and private event. i have to say that it can bring all sounds you really need and a wow effect from your friends - they all like my gig and the headphone!! I like the way the right speaker can swing backward to monitor the sound while you are cueing the music with the left one. It has all the power and comfort for long hour wearing.
  • Pros: Beauty, Excellent Sound, Versatile
  • Cons: Finished work quality, Not foldable

  • Excerpt: I bought these headphones for DJing andI absolutely love them. It has a nice sleek design and on top of that it has the ability to swivel for the right ear. I thought that the white color might get dirty and scuffed up, but so far there has been nothing wrong. Also, it comes with two cords, one for DJing and one for out on the street. Not to mention the audio quality is superb.
  • Pros: Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
