Stanton DJ Pro 3000 - Transformation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I had these headphones given to me as a gift many years ago, and just like everyone on the internet says they break very easily. After a few months the left earphone was hanging from its cable and the headphones were unusable. I had tried to fix it but to no avail.

Yesterday I was thinking about getting a pair of headphones to game with as the noise of the GPUs was ruining the immersion for me. So I remembered these headphones from years back and decided to give them a shot. I tested them and they sounded nice but I had to fix the left earphone which was hanging by its cable. This is what I did: biggrin.gif





I ripped them apart and kept just the two earphones and the cable connecting them together. I tied a piece of thick wire on both earphones to go along with the audio cable to protect it, then used duct tape to finish off the ties and cover the audio cable and the wire. Now, in order to use this thing I needed a new skeleton, so I disassembled yet another pair of headphones, a cheap Philips one this time.

I removed the earphones from it and kept the rest. To my surprise it seems to be an almost perfect fit for the Stanton earphones, and the whole thing just holds together fine (see 3rd pic).

Now I can finally use these nice headphones once more and enjoy my games and music! thumb.gif

On a side note, what do you think of these Stanton headphones sound quality wise?

Hinges like that make me nervous, I can't tell exactly how long before they break when it's the achilles heel to an otherwise good sounding product. I have used a few DJ headphones before but not any Stantons. But if the DJ Pro 2000's are good enough for Tiesto...

I find the filter switch in them interesting. That's not something most headphones like these have.

Yeah the filter switch is quite interesting. When I want a "lighter" sound I just switch on the high pass filter and the low end rumble goes away.

I'm really enjoying these headphones listening to music but I still haven't tried them in gaming with anything other than Dota. Pretty satisfied for now. smile.gif
