Information About DJ Headphones

Dj Headphones are an extremely important to any DJ or recording musician. They are the gateway to the music you are performing with, and they look cool too.

When it comes to getting your next set of Headphones, here are a few things to think about.

Sound Quality

Are you looking to buy a pair of headphones that are louder than the club so you can hear your mixes? Or are you looking for headphones that are pristine and crystal clear for when you're layering tracks in the studio? These two questions should be the determining factor in your next purchase. Headphones that are obscenely loud might be great for the club, but they are too 'crunchy' and 'fuzzy' when you try to use them for home recording.

When you're in your studio, you'll want a set of headphones that are clean and strong. They need to be able to play music at a comfortable level and still show you any flaws or track levels that need to be adjusted. You can't really use studio headphones in a club. They will play that music perfectly, but you won't be able to hear the music.

You can check the sound quality of the pair you are looking at by either reading reviews, or by check them yourself. Just turn them up and test them out. Try them in a quite setting where your more or less just listening to them, and see how 'clear' they are. Then try them in a loud setting where there is loud music playing outside the headphones as well as inside.


If there is one thing I can tell you that will make the biggest difference. Don't buy cheap crap! In the world of DJ headphones, you don't want a set that will fall apart. This doesn't mean that you have to buy the most expensive pair, but you don't want to buy a pair of penny pinchers either. Buy a pair that suits your needs at a modest cost.


I have seen even the best set of DJ headphone go to the dogs in a small amount of time. Whether your at home or on the road, make sure you check and see if your headphones come with a warranty. That way, even if you just don't like the way they feel or sound, you can still return them.
