Ok, ok, ok; we already know all that the Sennheiser HD-25SP is the strongest and most durable DJ headphone. The Technics HP-DJ1200 is maybe on the second place.

But do you think there are more strong, (meaning it will stand bends and twists), and durable, (meaning it will last a very long time),?DJ headphones on the market.

The rules are as follows:
Must have drivers larger than 40 mm.
No new headphones -?must be released?more than 1 year ago by the manufacturer.
Must have at least 1 extra movement possibility?compared to?normal consumer models (for instance?rotateble or swivel earcups).

i tried also the hd25 from senheisser but i think that the earcups are too small(but building-quility of this hp is really good), cuz i want those big earcups. thats why i choose for the RP-DH1200 from technics, that thing feels as solid like a rock...and has the big earcups.....

There goes the HD25.... no swivelcups. That, along with the fact that i agree with barthawk that the cups are too small, is the only thing that stops me from going out and buying myself a pair. The main advantave of the HD25 is that all parts are sold seperately, so if you do manage to bust something (which you'd have to try seriously hard for, or be a complete idiot) you can replace it instead of having to go out and buy yourself a new HP.

AKG headphones are generally quite strong as well, although i've never tested their new K181 DJ Headphones...

One of the HD25 you can rotate the cups to the back, just like the Technics RP-DJ1200.

I also got the Technics RP-DH1200, which seems to be strong. This may be the strongest headphone with drivers of 50 mm?

everybody knows al these headphones already, and knows exactly what to expect, what i want to hear is opinions and revieuws about the newcomers : Akg, Audio technica, Ultrasone,Denon etc.

Camino    posted on 28-10-2006 15:55
The denons look quite a lot like the technics, so i presume those are quite strong too...

Great topic guys, I am on the market for new headphones, and have written off Sony or Pioneer as I hear they break easily.. HD25s are too small for my liking and no swivel action.  Therefore I am going to buy Technics RPDH1200 as they seem like the best compromise for me!

The most durable headphone up to date, are Technics Dj 1200/1210, but maybe not the best sound.

They are built like a tank, easy and small to carry with you everywhere!

I've got many different sets of phones both Sony, Technics, Pioneer.

And i must say that the Techs kicks A** bigtime!

I don't know wich is more durable: The Sennheiser HD-25 or the Technics DJ 1200, but one thing is for sure: The HD-25 can even be bought in pieces, the availability for broken parts is very good.

what is everyone talkin about that the HD 25 has no swivel action,. i have them right in front of me, and trust me!! they do swivel. HD25 has small cups because they are on ear, not over ear. Once you get used to them you would not want anything else.

the HD-25 has to be the strongest..

but the older Pioneer Se-450 is a very strong piece to!!

Ok so the cups do rotate, but i wouldn't exactly call them swivel cups. When i think of swivel cups i'm thinking more along the lines of Sony or Technics... And once again, the choice of on- or over- ear is a matter of personal preference. I guess the HD25 doesn't cut it for me for those two reasons and the lack of a coiled cable, as much as i admire Sennheiser for making those amazing headphones. If it were just for listening to music I'd definitely get a pair!

The coiled cable is available... But you do need to search for it Winking my eye
Camino    posted on 24-02-2007 14:34
Really? They must be very rare because i've never seen one . Good to know!
HouseArrest    posted on 24-02-2007 22:11
definitely the hd-25! Happy, laughing

I've made the switch from a technics rpdh 1200 to a hd 25 and believe me.
its quite an improvement.
The HD25 has more comfort for long periods and it has a better sound quality.

No doubt, Technics Rpdj!!!!

Ik would also go for the HD-25. It is a robust headphone that has some flexibility in the material so it doesn't break fast.

i think the SE DJ 5000 van pioneer is one of the most strong and durable headphones

Well, couldn't find the official coiled cable for my hd25, so I made one myself. Just bought an extension coiled cable with on each side a male, and on the other side a female jack. Cut of the female jack and soldered it to the hp. Used a shrinkwrap for the solder.

definetely not the hdj1000

Pioneer SE-450 is definitly the most durable and reliable set of headphones. I used 1 pair (allthough modified) for over 6 years and only replaced the coushens once !

And even now, over 14 years after purchase I sometime use it, just for 'old times sake' :D


Let the BASS be louder
