Trance Headphones? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Hey man

I have the ATH M50's but i make Trance/electro music not dj it lol. They have some sick clarity for their price and are very accurate with their bass and sound. Great earphones for mixing and listening to music in general. They're very affordable and are very flexible. U can twist the hear phones 180 degrees and they can be transformed kinda to be more compact

Best pair of headphones that ive ever owned by far.

Stop the petty arguments about skullcandy.

Only post if you have something directly relating to (and beneficial to) the original question posted in the thread.

I have DJ'ed at many live events and let me tell you there are only a couple things that actually matter. I've gone thru dozens of headphones.

#1- How long is the cord. You want to be able to move around, get to your record crate etc without having to worry about running out of cord.

#2- How loud to they go. You can talk about which ones have the best clarity, bass blah blah blah. If you have a set of monitors pointing towards you, and a loud sound system banging bass, things change a lot. Half of the sound is going to be drowned-out anyways. You need a pair that can go up loud and will have good low and mid range because you are going to lose a lot of the highs due to the noise around you.

#3- how do they bend/ twist. When you have a pair of headphones on and you are beatmatching etc, you will a lot of times pull one earphone off so you can hear the monitors while still being able to hear the other record in your headphones. I've snapped several expensive Sony and other top brand "DJ specific" headphones like this and had to throw them in the trash. Find ones that have multiple points of movement in every direction. The more points they have to bend, twist, rotate at the better.

Now obviously all this applies to DJ'ing in clubs/ raves etc loud settings for a professional DJ. If you are talking about just to practice DJ or in a studio setting rather than a live gig, or listening to mixes at home or another quiet setting like this you can find something that has better audio quality, etc.
But for live gigs get something rough and rugged that goes loud. My advice would be to go to somewhere that has a lot of headphones and check them out in person.

The Sony MDR-V700 (someone recommended these earlier in topic) are really good. I've used them and they have decent sound and bend/ rotate in the correct places.
If you don't get these at least check out the movement on the earpieces and the headband. You need to get a pair that moves like these do or you will be throwing a broken pair of expensive headphones in the garbage.

Here is a review of them on Youtube. Watch how they bend/ twist at the correct points. You need headphones that do this to DJ properly IMHO.


I wish I could recommend another good pair but honestly I think that most headphones are overpriced plastic garbage that break with heavy use by a real DJ anyways.
