Many of the best headphones for DJs and non-DJs are very reasonably priced. Keep in mind that if you already own a set of good headphones you may not need to buy new headphones. Having said that, I think a good bang for your buck for headphones are the Audio-Technica ATH-M20x headphones. . The ATH-M50x sounds even better because it can handle lower bass frequencies and higher high frequencies.
I use the Sony MDR7506 headphones, which is also a great bang for your buck because they have even better bass and frequency range. They are great for mixing and beat matching. If you’re familiar with Pioneer products, then it should not surprise you to see Pioneer headphones on this list. Pioneer makes great products and headphones are no exception. Having said that, don’t just buy ANY Pioneer headphone, check the reviews first. I’ve use the Pioneer HDJ-2000MK2-s and they sound awesome. If you’re familiar with sound frequencies – then you’ll appreciate the fact that the HDJs can pick up bass frequencies as low as 5 Hz. I haven’t seen headphones go that low. I always assumed that’s a frequency only dogs can hear. I guess if dogs ever learn to DJ, they would probably use Pioneer HDJ headphones 🙂
