Excerpt: I just received these headphones they're totally awesome they sound really good have a good quality pioneer has always been a good product and I'm really happy with these headphones so far!! I recommend you buying his headphones!!
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
Excerpt: These are great sounding headphones. Extremely well built design. Very sturdy. The right headphone lifts up to rest on your head. This is great for DJ's. The only issue I have is that they get a bit uncomfortable over long hours of use.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
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
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
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.
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.
