Get a different set of cans. I had these and they were meh at best. Very heavy and if you're wearing them for any length of time I recommend against them.

$220 is a good deal, that's about what I got mine for. In my opinion they're great headphones, used by a lot of DJs and have a great build quality. They also look damn good compared to other headphones. I disagree that they're too heavy, I really never noticed their weight while DJing at all.

^^^ seriously?!?

I switched from the 2000s to Senn HD-25 II and it was night and day difference. I can actually wear them for two hours easily with no issues and the isolation is much better. The HDJs just fatigued me and drove me up a wall. Granted, they aren't the prettiest looking cans but I felt like it was night and day difference. Different strokes for different folks :shrug:

I've actually never used HD25s because they are ugly as sin and make my eyes bleed :P

I don't wear the headphones except when I'm actually mixing or playing out, and it's usually for a minute or two at a time while beatmatching and filtering. I don't want to derail the thread, because opinions about the HDJ-2000s have nothing to do with the thread. HDJs are a good choice, I wear the 1000s on my laptop for 1-5 hours a day and they're fine. The 2000s are slightly heavier but more comfortable in my opinion.

Wierd, audio equipment should be bought only based on its audio performance. The same way that women should be chosen by the size of their cans. :P
I don't worry about how headphones look on my ears, any more than I care what noise the missus makes on my d!ck.

As for the OP, I'm not a fan of Pioneer headphones. Better to get some headphones, from like, a headphone specialist company. So I'd pass on this.

I think opinions on a set of cans is quite relevant to the thread. If I was looking at buying something and asked if something was a good deal, I would want people to chime in with opinions on their thoughts. Could just be me though.

Poor analogy. The correct analogy would be an ugly missus on your dick that does a great job, versus a goodlooking missus on your dick that does a good job. Headphones should be a big choice for when you play out, because people are looking up at your face and that's where your headphones usually are. I could care less about the visual designs of the rest of my equipment, because they aren't a showcased part of the rig like something you're wearing around your head/neck. HDJ-2000s are really awesome if you can afford throwing the money down on them, and a lot of people use them and can attest to them. I don't wear mine for extended periods so they really don't feel uncomfortable. The HDJ-1000s get every-day laptop duty and they're just fine. "Not to mention, dey chrome broh!"
