Sennheiser HD 212 DJ Headphones

 

Reliable DJ Headphones that provide excellent sound quality

This headphone set gives great bass sound with definition and clarity. The comfortable earpieces make it easy to wear for long periods. The headband is not too tight, adding to comfort

The bass almost always cuts out the mid and treble ranges of these headphones. The wired nature of the headphones can get in the way of serious Disk Jockeys

This is a headphone built solely with the aim of providing a great headphone for Disk Jockeys in mind. As such, the headphones provide great bass that can really blow you away. The bass thump on this piece of equipment is truly a revelation. Another...

Sennheiser HD 212 Pro and HD 270 headphones

 

The ideal listening environment is, except for the music, quiet

That said, though, I think the HD 212 Pros really are excellent, particularly at this price. Highly recommended

Good seal of noise, lightweight, beautiful design, long cord, powerful bass, incredible comfort for hours-long listening, user-replaceable parts, easy to drive without amplifier and sounds great even from a music mobile phone

Won't produce a clear, sharp soundstage image, bass may be overwhelming at times, midrange is fuzzy and the upper range sounds cropped or compressed

If you're looking for bassy, comfortable overear headphones with a great price, I would reccomend trying these

Super bassy (which I love), sound quality is good, much less expensive than other headphones they compare to, very comfortable, decent sound insulation

Cord is pretty long and therefore not really the kind of headphones you use with an iPod, very bulky and unportable

great for a stereo, but not so much mobile use. but i can't say they're bad for mobile use, just not as good as a stereo with a fat (6.5mm, i think) jack, which provides more power/bass. look out for the 10ft cord, i just bunch it up with a rubber...

great bass with a stereo system with a 6.5mm plug (whatever the fat one is), comfortable, they cover your ears while keeping them from not sweating

cord is long for mobile use (10ft), and bass is not as good with an mp3 player or even any 3.5mm plug, but it works for me with eq adjustment(s), and hey an mp3 player isn't meant for lots of power either

Excellent cans for anyone who loves deep, powerful bass and may benefit from noise blocking and a long cord, on a budget. It's not the option for the audiophile, but excellent for almost anyone else. I use these on the iPhone, on the MacBook and on the...

I've also bought the HD 201 for a couple of close people for Christmas.

Just bought myself these for 45 euros and I couldn't be happier

They are closed headphones. For me it's a plus because I really want to cancel out noises from outside, but I'm conscious that closed headphones won't help me provide the very best sound quality

I am a producer, not a dj in any way and I have been using the HD 212 headphones for well over a year now. They are really dependable headphones and will hold up for a long time..The only problem I have with them is the focus they have towards bass. If...

Great For Movies, Listening To Music

Would Not Recommend For Producing Music, Engineering

I did not buy these, my uncle gave me the pair, since he bought some insane pair from the same company. Overall, these headphones are worth the money.

The sound is good, coupled with good sound cards or software, the sound gets awesome. Fits nicely, light (I think so)

The cord is pretty lengthy. Would be nice if they were a bit louder (that's just me with the noise though) ; At the bottom of it, no real cons
