I have a pair. The bass, when I think about it IS kinda muddy at times, but it’s solid, and the highs are crispy. At first listen they sound just like any other headphones, but after a while listening to them, you can tell the difference between them and a cheaper pair. What you’re really paying for besides the brand name is the noise-cancelling feature, which isn’t too bad for what they are. But I only really use them for casual listening. I give them a nice 6-7 out of 10. I’m a big fan of Sennheiser though and use that for all my professional stuff.June 29, 2010 at 3:07 am #680574
Anybody have these? Are they worth it?March 4, 2011 at 2:05 pm #686075
i heard they were okMarch 7, 2011 at 9:47 pm #686118
Although it’s quite 2late and I don’t really know Beats Pro, I just can give the usual advice for buying headphones: Try.
The best way 2see if they’re good for YOU and fit on your ears and sound good to you is to visit the next DJstore and try it out.May 2, 2012 at 8:48 pm #692524
they’re getting all the rave but at the end of the day just use what ur comfortable withMay 21, 2012 at 12:03 am #692806
Don’t get beats. They look good but the audio is probably the worst that you’ll be able to find. The bass is extremely overpowering and muddy, the soundstage is overly cramped, and there is no separation at all. If you want audio quality in a good DJ headphone i’d opt for the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II. They’re widely acknowledged as some probably the best DJ headphones. If they don’t look stylish enough to you, the V-Moda M-80 is also a great headphone. Both offer great isolation and the sound quality on both is extremely higher than anything endorsed by Dr. Dre. And they’re substantially cheaper. Don’t pay for the brand name, pay for the quality.May 21, 2012 at 2:01 am #692817

A very strong statement!
The mentally expensive ones actually sound very nice.

Definitely more on the mark with this statement. The top of the range sound very nice but are mentally expensive!
Lower range models are horrible tho! Pick yourself a plasticky set of Pioneer HDJ-500’s (in any colour wooo!) and
you will get a much better sound for half the price.
As you mentioned, the Sennheiser HD-25 are a fantastic set of cans, choose these or the Pioneer HDJ-2000.
Ive used both, currently I use the Pioneers, but both are great choices.
Ive never even heard of ‘V-Moda M-80’?July 16, 2012 at 6:43 am #693824

no beats sucks fucking exaggerated low end frequency you want flat response for monitoring man your fucking system should be blasting bass not your headphonesMarch 13, 2013 at 12:30 am #697427
it depends what you want do do with your headphones. for music production i would never recommend the beats. they sound way to "exaggerated" instead of "honest". simply for listening music, i find them too expensive.April 9, 2013 at 2:17 am #697994
Definitely consider Beats in the consumer side of consumer vs. pro electronics even with the pro prefixJune 27, 2013 at 1:24 pm #699189
never tried them so my opinion probably doesn’t count for much, but i’ve got some friends who are very in the know about all manner of music equipment and they detest beats headphones. sennheiser headphones are very highly recommended howeverJuly 2, 2013 at 12:19 pm #699267
Sennheiser headphones are the bomb yeah, very high quality. Also, I think as a DJ you need to make some sort of an appearance, you can’t stand there looking amateuristic in my opinion. People sometimes say I’m mad about that matter, but I just take great care in bringing the right materials (which need to be of some sort of high-quality) and they also need to look good. I always have gigs at small places, but there people can really see you. Also, recently bought myself a new tag heuer watch, the Aquaracer 500M, after a friend of mine recommended [url url=http://www.chrono24.com/en/tagheuer/index.htm:1xob7pk1]this website for watches[/url:1xob7pk1]. I just see in a way of investing in myself as a DJ ‘product’, the more value you put in there, the more it will bring you.. At least I hope so!July 10, 2013 at 3:22 am #699350
theyre pretty good but careful of fakes!July 12, 2013 at 10:37 am #699386
Yeah true, gotta watch out for those, but I think this is reliable. We’ll see!July 14, 2013 at 3:20 am #699405
indeed :p good luckAugust 28, 2015 at 9:32 am #704679
I use Sony headphones: MDR-V900HD in the studio and MDR-V700 when I DJ. Never used Beats but there’s been alot of press about how they use cheap components etc. and even weights inside to make them feel more substantial.November 30, 2015 at 3:50 pm #704941
I use Sennheiser. At the moment I use the HD 25-1 II and they’re perfect for me. My advice (said a few times here already): Try! It’s the best way to find out what’s best for you, cause everyone’s got different and personal motives for what is a good sound and what is a bad sound.
