Cheap and Chearful
Member Name: dirtybassdj
Advantages: Cheap, delivered to your doorstep for less than £10!
Disadvantages: Average sound quality, easily damaged!
The Numark HF125 are probably one of the cheapest pair of "useful" DJ headphones and what I mean by this is they serve their purpose quite nicely for less than £10 delivered to your door!
They are by no means on the same scale as professional makes like Technics, Pioneer, Sony etc but for around £7 each you have to ask yourself what you are expecting in terms of quality and durability.
The HF125 look rather cheap and on average do not last very long whether this be that the speakers end up detatched from the frame, the frame breaks in half or they give up full stop where one or both speakers just stop working. Until spending over £150 on reputable headphones I owned several pairs of the HF125's some of which came free with Numark turntables and mixers purchased at different times.
Considering the price tag they do have a fairly reasonable sound, not a great deal of bass but they manage to do the job, they are perfect for home use for simply listening to music, or watching a film etc but when it comes to the sensitive user "professional dj" or "music producer" then these are probably not for you!
They are quite comfortable to wear and consist of soft padding around the top and ear pieces and have several
slots to adjust the size of the frame to the users head. The wire is aproximately 1.8 metres in length and comes with 6.3mm headphone jack. These are very lightweight aswell at only 9grams!
So all in all you get what you pay for, if your planning on purchasing and using on a regular basis then you may find that you will need a couple of pairs.. So it may be worth just investing in a pair which you know will survive for lengthy use, however on the other hand if your just after a cheap pair of headphones that gives you an average fairly decent output then the HF125 are for you..
I do also believe that these have been one of the best sellers in DJ headphones over the last 5 years, could it be the low price or the constant replacements???
Summary: You get what you pay for and these are simply a pair of budget headphones for those short of cash..
