    Default New headphones - VModa Crossfade LP/LP2 or Pioneer HDJ1500?

    Does anyone have any personal experience of either of these? Having just got a vci400se I need to upgrade my 10yo Numark cans!

    get the hdj 2000 if u can, way better than hdj 1500. otherwise tma-1 is good in that pricebracket.
    if u have a shop nearby i suggest you try them all out!

    Man, for real DJing headphones. Nothing in my books compare to the HDJ-2000's. I have HDJ 2000's, had TMA-AI-1's, have Beats Pro, and have used a bunch of other one's too. I love the HDJ's hands down, & would recommend the 2000's 100% of the time.

    I had HDJ 2000's and currently use VModa Crossfades, I also gave a some Son 7506's. While I agree the 2000's are the best headphones out, the VModa's a definitely a great pair and I dont think for the price the HDJ's are that much better. I beat those things up and have turned out great.

    If you want to be cool:
    1. technics rp-dj1210
    2. crossfade lp (what I have, bought them before I even started DJing tho)
    3. aiaiai TMA1

    All of them are quality actually. I think it comes down to personal preference.

    Sorry to like half of the forum but I really dislike the pioneers, but I just really dislike pioneer as a brand. Again, sorry for having unpopular opionions.

    OK so TMA1 are out - prefer over ear to on ear. HDJ2000 are a little out of reach, as I found LP2s for 120. Technics, hmmm...?

    Using the hdj 2000 right now on my head, probably the most sleek over-ear headphone around..
    I like headphones and trying them out so have quite a few lying around.. beyerdynamics dt 770 are probably the best over-ear headphone
    that exist in the pricebracket (about 160 euro i think).
    You should check them out if you want bang for the buck (but design is perhaps not the most beatiful).

    Tried all the above except could not find beyerdynamic, seduced by LP2's from eBay at 100. Love them!
