    Also, post your budget. Generally though, you get what you pay for. I highly recommend something that

    -Is crisp, warm, and not too heavy either bass, mids, or highs. The sound systems in the club will probably be bass heavy anway
    -Noise cancels to protect your ears
    -Is comfortable

    I have the numark redwave headphones and they are outstanding. For roughly 60 dollars you get foldable, swivel-able, bass heavy headphones that's internally constructed with metal. They're perfect for the price point

    Buy once-cry once. Get Sennheiser HD25's or Pioneer HDJ2000's or some other high-end pair (Except beats by Dre or any other X by X type headphones), then never buy headphones ever again. You'll thank me later when you realize that your headphones have lasted 5+ years and you still have use of your ears when you are 50. You'll realize that $2-300 you spent once was well worth it. Or you can get cheapo headphones, have them break after repeated use, and then have to spend more money after that happens. It's up to you.

    in my opinion there are only two headphones to choose from.

    Sennheiser HD25 or Aiaiai TMA-1

    which suites better for you is something that nobody about you can tell you

    I would agree with racoon. I'm loving my TMA-1's right now but I've also heard great things about the HD25's and Pioneer HDJ 2000's as well. Just gotta give em a listen and see what you prefer
