          I've had these headphones for...well at least 6 months. the set of sony MDR-V700's completely broke after about 6 months...and I could see a crack that kept getting worse in the few months leading up to it. Also, the MDR-V700 headphones would make rather disconcerting noises when you swiveled the headphones...like they were going to break. So far these Denon DJ headphones seem extremely solid---no cracks, no scary noises (that sound like they're about to break). They're louder than my old sony headphones, and they sound way better. I plug these babies into my laptop & use them as speakers & just crank it---they sound so much better than my laptop's built in speakers, if I want someone to be able to hear the audio with good quailty, I use these bad boys. Every person I've showed them off to has been amazed!

          For the price and name I expected WAY more then what I got. My pair lasted just under a year before the right side started going in and out, as in out of sound. At first I was very happy with the fit and sound but then in noisy environments like at the club or wedding or other event I found myself pressing the cups against my head just to hear the cue sound quality is good better than good even but just lack the punch and volume to be a great or even good pair of REAL WORLD preforming DJ headphones. Not the most comfy especially after an hour of having them on your head. I do 3 to 4 hour sets every weekend so they get ALOTT of use but I take exceptional care of my gear, In fact it is a common comment I hear when I arrive for load ins at gigs "wow you take really good care of your gear" everything has a padded Hard case, EVERYTHING and nothing gets "tossed" into a case Kinda obsessed about that but that is key for the next load in and is what keeps setups at a minimal time frame. Overall construction is good solid even but what good is solid construction with poor sound performance? or no sound at all. Over all at this price point GET SOMETHING ELSE. I have used $cheep phones that lasted longer and were more comfy. I have a hard time paying more than two hundred for a pair. Most phones I have used over the years take a beating as I use them allot in the studio and on gigs. That said I tend to go through a few pairs this will not be a re purchase. Don't ask me what I would recommend as I have yet to find a head phone in the $kinda cheep to $mid zone that really blew me away. I did like these more than most I have tried but at this price I cant recommend them at all not when the cheep bringers are still getting use and sound good enough and I had them for 3 years even at minimal use they are more comfy and dependable as a back up in the road case and in the studio.

                Sometime when you plug it into another device, You have to adjust the depth to which you plug in the audio jack. Not sure exactly why. There is a sweet spot where you get even R and L sound.

                I would buy these headphones!

                may just take a few seconds of adjusting if necessary

                For the price, it is a steal! :-D

                These headphones sound great, look great, and feel great but they are poorly made. They use cheap plastic to connect the head band with the ear pieces which do not hold up over time. I've used them for about 25 events now and both sides have cracked to the point where they can not be used any more. If you are a professional that needs reliable equipment avoid these headphones. They're built like cheap toys.

                    Comments about Denon DN-HP1000 Professional DJ Headphones:

                    These headphones are awesome for practicing bass guitar. I've tried a few other higher end brands over the years, but until now they've all let me down. These are my first headphones to sound as good as my Eden cabs. They've also been great for listening to records and playing games. They produce strong, accurate bass, and at just about any volume you'd want short of hearing damage. Based on my past experience, I sort of expected to be disappointed with this purchase, but I am now a believer in Denon quality. I haven't beaten them up, but don't forsee any issues with build quality either. I wouldn't think twice about buying these again.

                    The best DJ phones

                    Comments about Denon DN-HP1000 Professional DJ Headphones:

                    I am a big fan of Denon products and these are no exception. No distortion, louder than I even imagined a headphone could be, very clear sound, and best of all they color the sound similarly to what your main PA will be playing out. I use these to DJ house and trance, they are great for both generes. If you mix sounds a bit harsh on the high end in these phones that because it is, Use your EQ!All headphones will eventually break at the arms when used for DJing, these are no exception. I recomend the warranty, I have used it once already after about a year of spinning with these phones. Overall outstanding and the best choice for a serious electronic DJ.

                    I've had these headphones for...well at least 6 months. the set of sony MDR-V700's completely broke after about 6 months...and I could see a crack that kept getting worse in the few months leading up to it. Also, the MDR-V700 headphones would make rather disconcerting noises when you swiveled the headphones...like they were going to break.

                    Comments about Denon DN-HP1000 Professional DJ Headphones:

                    I purchased these headphones in January 08 and they have seen very moderate use, bordering on infrequent, an the headphones worked spectacularly in the beginning (good sound, great comfort). As of my last gig one headphone has completely snapped of and the other is no far behind. It appears there is a weak point about an inch to half inch up the telescoping section on both sides. The headphones were always put back in the bag, never sat on or abused in anyway, like I said barely moderate use. I haven't tried to see if I could get warranty because I am traveling abroad. I'm hoping they do the right thing and replace them.

                    Comments about Denon DN-HP1000 Professional DJ Headphones:

                    I purchased these headphones because I've been unable to be at home where I can enjoy my Klipsch F-2s, since I've received them I have rediscovered the power of a quality pair of headphones. The resolution on these things are impeccable, the bass is clear, consistent, and not overpowered. The sensitivity on them allows for terrific volume without blowing out your eardrums too badly, also bringing the sheer energy of that special song to it's very peak. They handle all the power you can throw at them and then some with zero distortion. These babies can produce clear sound as small portable speakers that have the ability to even project their crisp bass across the room. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking to bring the concert with them anywhere they go. The value is absolutely unbeatable and the features of these headphones are unrivaled for the price range. These will last you for hundreds of hours of enjoyment to come.

                    I bought these about 6 months ago and they haven't given me any trouble what so ever. The clarity is pretty good, though the mids and lows are pretty strong. I've used these for a variety of purposes, from DJing to studio to pleasure listening. I've tried others from Technics and Sony and always come back to my Denons. The build quality is top notch and they are pretty adjustable to fit "just right." Highly Recommended.
