The best 5 DJ headphones 2019


1. Pioneer DJ HDJ-X10

The Pioneer DJ HDJ-X10 is the newest pair of headphones in this list, and it’s one of the best out there. The overall comfort and noise isolation provided by the cushy ear pads are second to none, and we love the deep bass and clear highs that the onboard speaker drivers deliver.

Pioneer DJ markets these as “high-definition” headphones capable of playing Hi-Res audio files, but even if you just spin with normal MP3 files you’ll appreciate the clarity and tight sound of these phones. The only downside is that they’re on the chunky, bulky side, so you might skip these if you prefer a smaller fit.

2.Sennheiser  HD 25-1 II

Debuting in 1988, the iconic Sennheiser HD 25 is the oldest out of all the headphones on this list, but it’s a model that continues to be favoured by professional DJs all over the world. It’s revered for its lightweight build, making it ideal for extended DJ use.

Tweaks have been made over the years, and today’s HD 25-1 II model features a split headband that can be adjusted for comfort without adding significant size and weight to the headphone. Of course, the sound is as good as ever, with a tight bass signature that punches above its speaker driver size class. This is the headphone of choice for many travelling techno and house DJs, and one that won’t go out of style anytime soon (or ever).

The modular TMA-2 from Danish company AIAIAI continues to improve on the original, adding different speaker driver models and ear cup sizes that you can pick from when building your own pair. The latest innovation includes a Bluetooth headband that gives any TMA-2 headphone model the ability to be used wireless with smartphones and tablets. You can still used them with a cable since each speaker driver has a jack for wired connections. A digital DJ favourite that’s well-loved by music producers and clued-up listeners too.

4. V-Moda Crossfade M-100

V-Moda has been quiet on the DJ front these past few years, but we think it’s because the company still sells its Crossfade M-100 headphones in droves. The V-Moda M-100 has a unique hexagon ear cup design that helps it stand out from all the other DJ headphones. Though it’s pushing six years since its introduction into the DJ world, it’s still worn and used by EDM and big room DJs because of its low-end response and sleek looks. You can even 3D print or have your logo laser etched on the ear cup shields for added branding.
