Advantages: Sound quality, good value
Disadvantages: Comfortable after about two hours of wearing
I am performing fewer and fewer live sets now, so my DJ is almost completely restricted to the bedroom. Essential for any DJ is a good set of headphones, which these have proved to be. I have owned them for about six months and manged to buy them for the bargain price of £25.99, online, from Hard To Find Records.
The first thing to note about these headphones is that they are quite comfortable to wear. An essential trait for any headphones. However, after about an hour and a half of wearing them, , I started to feel a slight discomfort around my ears. Upon further wearing I have noticed that the discomfort can soon turn to an ache. This is fairly typical with most sets of headphones, as they are not designed for prolonged wearing.
The sound quality that come through the headphones is superb and is easily the best feature. The clarity of the beats make these headphones an absolute winner. I have got through many headphones in my time and must say that the sound what, for the value of the headphones is amazing.
The headphone head rotate in a full circle, meaning you are able to have either of them in any position. A very worthwhile and almost standard feature with these type of headphones.
The power chord that attachs to your mixer (from the headphones) is a good length. You won't have to take your headphones off when attempting to pick out your next tune to play.
All in all, for this price range you won't find a better pair of headphones, with this sound quality. However, because of the uncomfortable nature of them after prolonged use, I would recommend spending a little more money. For beginners though, these are ideal.
I award them four out of five Dooyoo stars.
Summary: Good for beginners
