I have just cancelled an order for some Technics rp-dh1200...now I'm am reconsidering the pioneer hdj-1000.

The only real difference I see is that the technics has a removable cable on the outside of the headphone (which seems to be very convenient) and the Pioneer has it on the inside.

Anyone had any experience with both of these headphones?

Any other headphones to consider?

I only have experience with the pioneer, i liked it.
But a headphone is a very personal choise, try both headphones before buying.

The new Pioneers will probably be in stores withing 14 days now. Only in the Dutch region btw... I don't think they will be available globally...

I cancelled my dh1200 order because it had been 2 weeks since I ordered and they didn't ship them yet....but I found a local shop that would match the online price so I was able to pick them up today. 

They seem to have excellent clarity of sound.  I think i'll be happy with these.

Nice headphone, You've got to have a good headphone amp on your mixer because the Se-M10R needs a good amp!

Thank you for the pics Lead Winking my eye, have you had the opportunity to try this headphones?

Lead    posted on 19-07-2005 08:46
Yeah I own it :D

It's very nice, futuristic looking and gives a good audio quality, colouring just a little of high-mid and low-tops so you hear the accents of the audio right. It's just misses a little but of output power in comparisson to the HDJ-1000.

I had a pair of pioneer's break on me after 5 months of use.  This seems to be a frequent problem with them.  I bought the technics after they broke and they have been going strong ever since.  I would say Technics no doubt.

Pioneer have warrenty, go back ot the store with the invoice and they should be able to settle this... If you haven't been doing some crazy stuff... Confused

I know that pioneer has a warrenty, but at the moment it seems they are having alot of trouble with this product.  If you look in the pioneer forum's, it seems to be a frequent issue.  I am not saying the pioneer's are not a good product.  I just want to buy a product that doesn't seem to have this problem.  I was also a owner of the sony 700's as well.  This was also an issue before sony resolved it but most people already left them for the pioneer.  I want nothing more to own a complete pioneer system, but I feel their headphones at the moment do not make the grade.  I do not know about other DJ's but when my #1 headphones are out of commission or taped so I can use them it affects my mixing. My entire attitude behind the decks as a matter a fact.  I am not tying to discourage people from pioneer products.  I just wanted to save someone else the heartache.  Am I alone?
Has anyone else had the same problem?

I'll go for the Technics any day, why ?, because of the build/sound/design quality!

Your not alone. I recently just broke a brand new Stanton PRO3000 .

Seems that all the different brands don't seem to understand that DJ's who make a well-considerate choice for the DJ headphones with swivel feature , generally use it in a pretty violent way. Not because they are not carefull, but because the swivel enables a certain style of working. Good advise is to always have a cheap spare pair of headphones.

In order of importance of features I would now select a headphone with swivel in following order: soundquality, durability, large ear cups, loudness, price, looks, comfort (better make it all heavy metal than cheap plastic that degrades with time).

Maybe this Test from 2004 is of any use on this topic?

Thanks. Nice information on your link Emotion.

Problem is you can't see or appraise the strenght in plastic when its still new. Lots of info on sound quality, but never of the kind of plastics they use. You got to believe the manufacturer and reviews and those or not the most reliable.

Now I'll try to look at DJ's still wearing older models of at least 3 years. Probably those are of strong built. The Stanton PRO2000 seems to be one of those. Also the ones of Technics without swivel, but I need the swivel feature.

The Pioneer of above seems to be strong with all the metal, but if the headband is of a cheap plastic, it will break right there at the joint with the metal part.

The longest used Headphone and probably the strongest: Sennheiser HD25

@ DJ Emotion
How long? Doesn't meet my requirements (see above): frequency range inadequate, no swivel, small earcups. But good as spare.

But I think you're right about the strenght. Can someone please figure out what kind of plastic they've used, so we can know what to look for in high end models. Of course we should know the fabric of the other models as well in order to compare.
