Full Size Cans: Pioneer HDJ-1000

Well what can I say about the Pioneer HDJ-1000 full sized cans, they have unbeatable sound, great comfort maybe not, lightweight no/foldable for storage/travel yes. The phones were designed for professional DJ use. The price range is around US$150 to US$170 for a pair so you need to really shop around and get the best price.

Apart from the great ambiance, sound stage, air and timbre recreated by these cans, the full impact of the music can be rendered like recreating a masterpiece painting in your ears and not before your eyes. The down size is that I consider them bulky and uncomfortable for protracted periods of listening. They do win hands down on the sound isolation department and cut out outside noise. I do use these for mixing and burning of CD tracks. These belong in the winners arena.

Out of a 5 I will give these cans 4.7 rating, deductions for not being comfortable for long durations. The bass impact is incredible on these headphones sinking in deep into the lower registers and holding tight all the way without feeling muddy. A real sonic experience, the mid range is so utterly sweet and refined.
