    Default Crazy Headphones

    So I'm surfing the interwebs doing my routine search for new headphones (as I currently own Samson CH700 ) I come across a little nifty piece of equipment.

    http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/12/08...e-technologic/

    Depending on the sound quality, durability of materials, and isolation, I think I actually might get these.

    Any thoughts?

    ewwww dont like the look of those headphones at all to be honest.. They dont even look like something out of Tron lol just looks like a toy, if any thing Beats by Dre headphones look like they would fit the Tron theme much better

    I would say marketing ploy. But Monster usually makes decent headphones though, the makers of the Dre Beats. Its probably just a mix of both being their $350!

    They are not DJ headphones.
    I bet they last 5 minutes under the strain of DJ work and not just sitting in front of your computer with your joystick in your hand

    You have money to burn? These are probably equivalent to $45 Senheisers. You're paying for the name, two names actually. Monster (seller of crazy overpriced cables) and Tron. Take the money and buy actual DJ headphones.

    I was definitely going for the the HDJ-2000s or xd-53. It's not that I have money to splurge with rather than just looking for something that'll last for more than a year. I was considering the MDR-V700 until my friend broke them, in the same week he got them, moments before our set.

    Honestly though, if they're anything comparable to the Dr. Dre's, I would definitely not buy them in terms of audio quality and durability (However they're still pretty cool looking to me). And I am actually basing this off of actually handling them myself.

    But also, I was thinking of ripping out the drivers in my current headphones to see if I can fit them into some Howard Leight Leightning L0F.

    I'd pass on those mate. They look snazzy sure but they are bloody expensive and probabbly not too flash for dj work. Get some sennheiser hd215's and spend the change on whiskey and dancing girls.
