    Default best dj headphones for under 100$?

    hey i'm looking for the best pair of dj headphones i can get for under 100$. I'd like some good sound isolation so that I can protect my ears when volumes from the master get relatively high. Portability is always a plus and durability is nice too any suggestions?

    If you can find V-Moda's on sale they sound great. If not Sony 7506.

    i had a pair made by KOSS for 9 years. There were around $45 back in the day.
    You can still find their brand.
    And they still do carry a lifetime warranty on the cans.
    If the black layer over the foam breaks down or the foam starts to come off,
    the replacement is free. They just sent you the parts.
    awesome.
    I used them for gigs for 9 years, and beat the HELL out of them.

    Also, my fav part is when they say "Around the ear" they mean it
    There is nothing touching your ear at all when wearing them

    The one thing that drove me to them is all the others said same thing but you can feel them pressing
    against the earlobe or cartilage. These dont

    i've heard they're really tight and are not very good for djing a gig (especially doing the one ear on one ear off style [constantly falling off]) is what i've read

    You can't have isolation with 1 ear off.
