Technics RP-F 880 E S
Advantages: Look good, self adjusting
Disadvantages: Connecting wire gets tangled
The Technics RP-F 880 can be purchased for anywhere between £55 and £75. I purchased mine for £59.99 for a shop on Tottenham Court Road. I purchased them specifically for a bit of home dj-ing, when using my turntables.
The first thing that impressed was how good these headphones looked. The silver finish gives it a very modern look. Overall I liked the look, although I was a little unsure about the plastic tubbing which adds a level of support. However they have really grown on me seen I have owned them.
Putting the headphones on you'll notice how comfortable these are. The padding around the ears is good and the headphones stay around your ears nicely. There is also a self adjusting headband, which improves comfort and stability also.
All types of isolated listening are available with these headphones, simply move your headphones accordingly. The clarity of the music through theseb headphones is superb, though if you overload the treble I can hear slight crackles. But they are very slight and very unnoticable.
To use these headphones you plug them into your mixer via a connecting wire. The wire with these headphones is quite long and allows me to move anywhere in my bedroom without having to remove my headphones. Quite handy really. The wire sometimes gets a little tangled, but it is worth it. The last pair of headphones I owned were terrible. The wire hardly stretched at all.
I have tried these headphones at home and at a crowded house party. In both circumstances these headphones have isolated the music well and made crowd noise not an issue.
All in all I am pretty happy with these headphones. They are a midrange pair, at midrange price. I award them four out of five Dooyoo stars.
