    Beats pro's are a far call from regular 'ol run of the mill beats. But yes far overpriced for what you get (like everything monster or previously monster).

    OP You'll see lots of headphones mentioned, everyone has their preference for gigging, most will not be Beats however - Start by googling for best DJ headphones and refine by the ones you see mentioned the most often.

    Don't touch wireless no matter what for DJ headphones (important)

    You can pick up some serious bargains at sometimes less than 1/2 price on headphones on Ebay for factory refurbished headphones in retail packaging e.g. today I see Factory refurbished Beyerdynamic t51's for $119 ... thats nearly $100 less than the retail price.

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT I think you mention this model because there is another Audio-Technica M50 https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/h...6b1/index.html

    Sennhiser hd25-ii best £125 ever spent, every part of them are replaceable so if something gets broke you donít have to buy a new set! Was recommended buy a dj friend of mine who plays along side some of the biggest names in trance

    I expect to get flamed for this, but here goes.

    I bought a pair of these gaming headphones (stop laughing) and was so impressed with them I've stopped using my Sennheisers. They are ridiculously comfortable and the sound is pretty awesome. They're cheap too, just remember to unplug the stupid mic at the front.

    If they work for you and you aren't using them for mix-downs while producing, no one should ever give you grief for it.

    I currently use Pioneer HDJ-2000 and Sony MDR-7506 (with upgraded Wicked Cushions), but what I really would like is greater noise isolation so I can easily preview songs, without having to crank up the headphone volume. How are these Cougar's in that respect? I notice they come with two different ear cushions.

    Do your research and compare as many pairs of headphones as you can, then buy some Sennheiser HD25's while realising you could've been doing something else.
    Live rig: Denon Prime (5000M's)
    Retired: Denon x1700, Denon SC3900's, Traktor, Technics SL1200's, my vinyl
    Wish list: Some Roland Aira stuff.
