    Default What do you look for in...headphones

    Hello everyone on Djtechtools, I was wondering,
    what do you guys look for in DJ headphones?
    what is the true difference between headphones that cost 50 bucks, and headphones that cost 250?

    I have Sennheiser HD 205's that cost me around 40 dollars/50, would you upgrade to some other headphones? (headphones that would be used in a club environment, not just bedroom)

    I agree with him as well. The sound reproduction is a huge part of it for me. I use HDJ 2000s for DJing, and AKG K702s for production. I think it's definitely worth saving up for a good pair of cans.

    sound isolation, size and durability are important in my book.
