The 53mm speaker drivers deliver an extremely high performance, with an extended low-frequency response. The rotating earpieces with soft earpads allow comfortable one-ear monitoring, and the adjustable headband ensures excellent wearing comfort. A 3.5mm stereo plug and a 6.3mm adapter plug are provided.

A little over priced but great quality

By Noktrnal1

from SoCal

See all my reviews

I picked these up needing a pair to take back with me on a deployment after having a few other brands. They sound great, and they are loud. If it werent for feeling explosions I would of never heard it. They are kind of big and they are the heaviest pair I've ever owned. If you have a larger head and the Technics, Sony or Bose are to small. You might want to give these a try. I didn't notice it at first, but they are big. I dont even have to extend them, I actually wish I could have them a little shorter. Overall they are good quality phones. Just make sure the jack itself isn't getting pulled on to much. Mine is starting to bend after having it in a laptop for about 5 months.

Sounds great but sized for a giant

By Kevin Gamble

from LA & New York

Gread sounding headphones that are sized for an elephant.
The sound quality is amazing and they are really quite comfortable. I've been using the same pair of Technics RP-DJ1200's for years, they were starting to fall apart and my only complaint with them was that they literally bolted onto your head so tight that after a couple hours, you'd start to get a headache. Plus I wear glasses, so the super tight fit was just too much.

The XD-53's have a much bigger earcup, so they are more comfortable, but even at the smallest sizing, they things are still massive. I take a LARGE hat, I've got a pretty big head, but seriously, if you nod your head to the beat while you're mixing, the headphones fly off and tumble down your face (they did that FOUR times during my last set, and almost broke my glasses). Who did they build the protypes off of? Andre the Giant? Whereas the Technics were too tight - you could literally do aerobics while wearing those things - the XD-53's are just too bloody loose. I can't ever imagine a girl wearing these things, they'd never stay up. I wanted to get the matching headphones to complement my Xone controller and now I'm a little frustrated I did. Sound quality is AMAZING. Fit is GARBAGE.

If you have an impossibly sized giant cranium, your ship has come in. But WARNING - Do NOT buy these without trying them on at a store first.

Durable and Crisp

By Hosie

from El Paso TX

I have had these for about 2 months now and have no issues at all. The sides are reinforced with metal so you don't have to worry about them cracking. I have gone through Pioneer HDJ-1000's, Denon HP 1000's, Stanton DJ Pro 3000 headphones and I've got to say that overall these are my favorite. There are more durable and have an extrememly clear sound. They also can handle a ton of volume with no audible distortion highly recommend for DJ's and Studio producers.

Heavy, and rough

By Noktrnal1

from SoCal

See all my reviews

These are some heavy duty headphones. Also large in size, ear cup has much to be desired. The 1/8" jack is starting to bend from being in the computer to long. They get loud and can be thrown around quite a bit. NOT a studio headphone, at best a dj headphone. They are not comfortable to wear for long periods.

Awesome

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Got these yesterday and ive gotta say, it really did impress me alot, tho the construction feels a little flimsy compared to the other cans im used to...but u wont be disappointed by the sound quality, solid lows, crispy highs and well balanced mids(for my liking i.e). Id recommend it in a flash to any one!

Great for listening, not dj'ing

By John-RkAIU

from Mobile, AL

These headphones sound amazing! They have huge drivers for nice bass and great highs. They also have balanced and accurate sound reproduction, so they're great for the studio. They are just SO big!! Seriously, they're huge. I have an average to large size head and wear them on the smallest adjustment. While standing and djing they pretty much fall off if i don't keep them on a certain way which really (seriously) interferes with my mobility. Great headphones for listening, but if you move around alot do yourself a favor and get something more snug!

Excellent Quality, Great Value

By Robert Nefzger

from Fayetteville, AR

At first, I was skeptical about making the purchase on the Allen & Heath headphones because of the expensive cost. After using them, I am very satisfied that I spent the extra money for this brand. Allen & Heath handmake most of their mixing products, and that same precision has translated over to these headphones.
