Sony MDR-V500

 

DJ Headphones with plenty of flexibility

The earcups are mounted on three joints, so the headphones can swivel all over and remain comfortable on your head. They're very light for full-enclosure phones and they're comfortable. The headband also has a wide adjust range for DJs with huge heads

These phones are not particularly loud, which is fine for a quiet room, but may be a different story at the club, once you push the faders and cue the drunk people. They also lack depth on the lower end of the frequency spectrum

For under $80, these will get the job done. They make a great backup set for traveling DJs, soundmen or engineers. They are also very versatile for studio applications.

Great for the price

 

I bought these originally 6 years ago when they were very expensive. They held out all 6 years and then the arm of the earpiece broke. I took a look at the other options but at this price and for this quality, they can't be beat.

Get a Head

 

It's lightweight and very clear. However, the adjustments don't allow for small heads. My head is barely at the borderline. It would be nice if I could adjust it so that it would fit a little tighter.

Good sound, but uncomfortable

 

The sound quality is excellent, bass is great. It's also compact because of it's ability to fold. But my biggest gripe is the fact that there uncomfortable, the cups are tight and after long sessions, your ears hurt. Other than that, the headphones are...
