I'm sure this poll will result with the winner: HDJ-1000
Most people here are Pioneer users, and will tell you the HDJ is the best.
I don't think u can compare the Stanton with the rest of them. Popularity isn't the problem, but it just can't compeat with the rest.
The HD 25 is a nice headphone 2, looking good, sounding good, but is (as you mentioned) very expensive.
The technics is nice 2, it won't break that fast.
But the pioneer looks soooo good
