Given enough time everything will break or stop working properly. The only headphones that didn't break yet are the ones which are very new or very strong. And I know these. And of course its a pity that those are not mentioned yet.

For now I'm just interested in the weakest parts of DJ headphones. For now it seems that most of the brands have stronger swivel joints, but the headband is the weakest part. But surprisingly many headphones survived more then 2 years.

But I plan to add a new topic with the strongest DJ headphones the next week or so. Also the Rookie info and tips on headphones. First I want to complete my research and write a good article.

The only headphone that realy won't break is the Senheiser HD25. The rest wil break if you totally wear them out.

Oh and the good old Pioneer SE450 and the newer SE5000 are very strong. Sound quality isn't impressive (both models) but you only asked which headphone's won't break. Winking my eye

My experience with the sennheisers is that the padding on the headphones wears down quite quickly... as does that of the MDR-v500. However, if i were to go on the road every day i would go for the HD25's... they're durable as hell, have a great sound, and most importantly: you can replace every part individually. However, it is lacking in rotating cups (which i find treacherous to work without) and i also find the double cord rather annoying...

If durability is what you are looking for; sennheiser is the way to go

No I didn't ask that. I only want to know what the weakest parts are, also from the strongest headphones.

First I had a ProDjUser SPL 127 MK II, a good quality headphone that doesn't cost much, but after about a year one of the earparts fell of. I had to click it back in the side, but that's quite hard when you are playing at a party...
