    Default Best headphones offering style. comfort and durability?

    wanting to purchase some headphones, i have read loads of reviews like "top dj headphones 2013" , "best headphones to buy in 2013" etc , but still unsure on what headphones I want.

    I have considered the ultrasone dj 1 pro, hdj2000 k, v-moda crossfader m 100 and the Audio Technica ATH-M50 or newer models etc. I have ruled out the Sennheiser HD25 and the Aiaiai TM 1 because I don't like the look of them, I am not a fashion crazy sort of person but compared to other headphones, they don't look the business, but that's what I think and I am buying headphones for myself, so I want to satisfied.

    I don't have a budget, but I would like to spend more and get something worth keeping for years, than something that will just do for the meantime, so am I looking at the high end of the market.

    I am wanting headphones with a balance sound, nice bass but not too over powering, swirling headcup's ( if thats what you call it? ), removable cable if possible, must come with a case to protect them when not in use, I want these headphones to last me and not easily break, although I pretty much look after my stuff anyway, noise canceling, comfortable enough to wear for 3 - 4 hours on end, I don't think I have missed anything, but if I have please mention.

    You should check out this headphone review from DJ Ravine. He reviews about 9 of the popular models and goes over the pros and cons over each one. Worth a view.

    Mate - your phones MUST be comfortable.

    For me, everything else is secondary. Sound quality, durability, strength, etc..., are all unimportant if you can only wear 'em for 10 minutes before you have to take 'em off.

    I have worn my tma-1's for up to 8 hours at a time.

    I once used a pair as my computer system audio and since I work on a computer it meant I was basically wearing them for 10 hours a day 7 days a week.

    I honestly think they are the bees knees

    I friend of mine recently went from HDJ2000 to Beats Mixr.
    I know that Beats isn't the most popular pair of headphones among DJs and i agree, that most of them really sucks, BUT i actually like these Mixr headphones. Stylish, comfortable and sound almost on pair with HDJ2000.
    Own HDJ2000 myself, but there life is coming to an end (parts falling off etc.) and i am very much considering going the Beats way (there are reviews both here on DJTT and on DJWorx.com)

    Btw: Note that HDJ2000 doesn't come with a case to protect them. That is extra cost.

    Me and around 12 of my mates all swear by Sennheiser HD25s. 4 of these mates have had there headphones for over 12 years.

    I have a few mates that love the HDJ2000s and had one mate who loves the HDJ2000 but moved to the HD25s due to comfort, lightness and other factors.

    Except that he specifically said he doesn't like how they look.
