    meh, don't look too great. numark has turned around on the controller end but I'm not about to look at their headphones or consider wearing them.

    LOL... it looked like the only thing missing were some Tron boots or something.



    @Xonetacular
    Agreed on the controller end. Interested to hear more about the latest 4 trak, Post Namm.

    Why not? I'd at least give them a listen before just writing them off.

    Why? Sony and Sennheiser have been working for countless DJs for years. Just because something's new doesn't mean it doesn't suck, and while Numark used to have a very good reputation, a lot of their stuff for a long time has kinda sucked.

    3 decent products does not make them a real company again.

    Personally, if anything tears my HD-25s off my head, it'll be IEMs or maybe those awesome looking beyerdynamic headphones that skratchworx reviewed…realistically, though, it'll probably be death.

    this looks like it is made to be packaged with the new 4trak
    Setup:

    Traktor Pro 2 / S2 MK2 / X1 MK2 / Audio6 / Pioneer HDJ2000 / Westone UM3X / rMBP 13 inch 2014 (2.8 GHz) / Focal Alpha 50

    Fine you're absolutely right. I'lll never try anything new again. I will stick to my Sony MDR forever and ever.

    Perhaps. Numark isn't known for its headphones. I think the last reply summed it up best in that it looks to be packaged with the 4trak.

    Are these the Beyerdynamics you were referring to? LINK

    No love for these? AIAIAI TMA-1
