Sony MDR-V700DJ Headphones

Not to rain on your parade. I have yet to find a working DJ who hasn't had their Sony 700s break within 6 months of getting them.

That said ... I still want to buy a pair. :)

Not to rain on YOUR parade but I've had mine about a year and a half and they're still fine.

But then again, I'm not a working DJ
AWWWWWW :(

My pride & joy. Have had it for a couple years now. My only complaint is that the headphones aren't as big as the Sony's, so those of you who have big ears will hate it.

A friend of mine has the Pioneer DJM 5000 and they're awesome. They filter out background noise very nicely, and seem to be very durrable.

Can't remember how much I spent but I got my sony 600s at Bay Bloor Radio. Why there? Sure it's pricier than those cheap shops on yonge but I had one of the speakers inside the earphone fall off from the body and bay/bloor fixed it for free without even sending it to sony.

The best part? They said if anything happens to them ever I can bring them back and they'll fix 'em for free.

Being a guy who cranks his headphones and treats them like garbage, I though bay/bloor was a good deal in the end

P.S. I think the 700s are slightly louder but I'm not positive. I think the other difference is that the cord for the headphones is straight and not twisted which is great.

Otherwise save your money and go for the 600s. I think the drivers are exactly the same.

600's don't compare there are subtle differences that have a big impact... my 700's are wicked and I Matt, will appologize for raining on your parade but they work fine and i've had no problems.

My 700's and a friends both cracked in the same place in just under a year of use. I'm not hard on my headphones either. They're wicked headphones but I would think that Sony would be smart enought not to put plastic were metal should be, especially considering that the cracks are were the most pressure on the headphones are.

I think that I would buy them again though(Actually my girlfriend bought them for my birthday! :) )

i got mine at bay-bloor for 230. i had a bunch of gift certificates so thatt's why. also i would suggest bay bloor since they have the best service departement in the city. you don't stay in business that long without something to back it up!

it's a little more expensive but well worth it.
