‘You’re a DJ, you must know a thing or two about headphones. What’s good?’
Headphones are a personal thing, especially for musicians and DJs. Most consumers wants the best product for the least cost. Even if you merely want a quality pair of headphones for personal use we recommend professional headphones – they offer allot more average value than the retail market. Entry level pro headphones cost less than a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre. We recommend going to a music store such as Axe Music, Music Centre Canada or Long and McQuade to purchase a quality pair of headphones, they usually have some wonderful headphone demos setup where you can listen before buying. If you want headphones that are accurate and comfortable go for a studio set, if you want enhanced bassy goodness you want a DJ set.
What’s fully enclosed vs. semi-open?
Enclosed headphones block out most external noise and offer a great listening experience. They are a good choice for DJs as they can help protect your hearing from the main PA. They are not a good choice if you are on the go walking near traffic. Semi-enclosed still offer a good listening experience without shutting out the rest of the world.
Here are a few of our favorites headphones, we thought these had some of the best value so we bought them.
