    For a more complete comparison you may want to include the Ultrasone brand of headphones as well.

    Ultrasone PRO 750's or PRO 900's should be included in Producing.
    Ultrasone DJ1's and/or DJ1 PRO's should be included in DJ Headphones.

    will do, ill have to check prices to make sure ive covereed a decent rang as well.

    Im thinking testing them through a laptop and also through an ipod,

    not sure if i should use a headphone amp or a better mp3 player like a cowon. perhaps at the end ill suggest getting an amp or better DAP

    some of these headphones sound totally different when driven with a proper amp apparently.

    Imo, a good pair of DJing headphones should not require an amp. It's yet another piece of gear you have to carry around.
    Traktor Pro, VCM 600, Custom Midi Fighter, Presonus Firebox, Ultrasone DJ1 Pro
