Top 5 Professional Headphones for DJs

If you’re an aspiring artist, particularly a DJ, here are the top 5 professional headphones you should invest in today or sometime before you’re next big gig.

1. Sony MDR7506

Sony MDR7506 provides great audio fidelity and delivers amazing sound on a wide range of frequencies (10 Hz to 20 kHz). The headphones are lightweight and comfortable, providing remarkable length (9.8 ft), where the cord is long enough to move around without removing the headphones. Lastly, the headphones come with a great compact unit, ultimately making it portable, which is always a plus when you’re BOOK AND BUSY (Rickey Thompson voice).

2. Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro Over-Ear Studio

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, unlike Sony MDR7506, are flexible and sturdy, have superior sound quality, and are comfortable to wear for long durations. If you’re looking forward to being at venues during the weekend, then you should look into these pair of headphones due to their amazing sound quality, which is available in 3 models with varying impedance (32 ohm, 80 ohm, and 250 ohm).

As for mixing, pick the 250 ohm, which provides high sensitivity, frequency response, and dynamics. Because the sound is fantastic, regardless of low or high frequencies, you’re guaranteed a natural sound. Also, according to LoudBeats, “the ear cups are soft and padded generously. It is comfortable to wear for longer durations without any strain or pressure on the head or ears.” Basically, these headphones are for people who take the sound of music very seriously.

3. V-MODA Crossfade

Now, if you’re not interested in a pair of headphones equipped with a cord, check out the wireless V-MODA Crossfade Headphones. The headphones also give you the chance to move as far as 33 feet away from your Bluetooth device. And it gets better: you can quick charge them in 30 mins, but once they’re fully charged, guess what, they could last up to 12 hours! Damn, that’s pretty impressive.

4. Sennheiser HD 280PRO

Out of the first three headphones, Sennhesier HD 280PRO are the best professional headphones on the market. The headphones have optimum impedance of 64 ohms and a sound pressure level of 113 dB. On top of that, these headphones are perfect for clubs or events because their sound frequency ranges from 8-2500 Hz. Not to mention the sound isolation is great with up to 32 dB attenuation. Lastly, the headphones are lightweight and flexible, where you can rotate the ear cups without any trouble.

5. Shure SRH440 Professional Studio

Looking for a clean frequency with no shrill involved, take a look at the Shure SRH440 Professional Studio. These headphones would not disappoint you, as they provide a rich bass, great for classical or metal music. They come with a detachable cord (9.8 inch). However, the downfall is that they’re pretty heavy, which might cause some discomfort. Other than that, I don’t see anything wrong with them.
