Pioneer HDJ2000?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Saw these on sale at my local Best Buy for (what I believe) is a pretty low price, around $130ish. Would that be considered a pretty good buy at that price?

I know nothing about headphones and am just looking to pick something up that's high quality. I listen to almost everything, from classical to rap and hip-hop.

Also, would I need an amp to run these well?

MSRP for the HDJ-2000's (in any of the three colours) is $350, so yeah, $130 USD is a good price I'd say. They're great for djing as they have a fairly good amount of bass to them, wear well (aka have a higher chance of surviving repeatedly being stuffed into and then subsequently yanked out of a gig bag), and block out a respectable amount of exterior sound. They're also incredibly sexy looking, and have a coiled cable (don't remember if they come with a straight cable as well), which some may not find to their taste.

I'm no expert on the higher end of things with headphones, but I would say it would depend on what you're looking to do with them. Listening to a lot of DnB or breaks while in a fairly noisy environment they could prove useful, but for just kicking back and listening to a wide variety they might not be to your tastes. Most headphones aimed at djs tend to accentuate the highs and especially the lows as those are where most of the cues djs use to mix seamlessly are found.

I would definitely recommend giving Simca's Guide to OCN's most recommended audio products a good read as there is a LOT of incredibly good advice in there.

They're worth picking up for sure. Great DJ'ing headphone with a semi-neutral sound. Very comfortable too.

They have a balanced bass response, not satisfying for some guys.
Just in case:

Other than that, they are good headphones for a nice price
