If you're a DJ and you're puzzling over which cans to buy, then look no further than these beauties. They have volume, comfort and sound quality all sewn up, and they are less than half the price of Denon, Pioneer, etc.
Yes, they have been known to break at the swivel point in the past, but Sony have at least addressed the problem as best they can. I've been a pro DJ and equipment retailer for over 20 years and I've had 4 pairs of these (2 broke after 2/3 years service and one pair was stolen) and I swear by them. Look after them, don't chuck em about and they'll give great service. No way are the competition's headphones worth twice as much as these, so grab a pair soon. And don't buy from auction sites....lots of fake Chinese copies on the market.
