    i think duplicate reviews are fine.

    I think you should change the title of the topic to something like "Official DJF headphone reviews" or something like that so people can just click on that link

    Also, reviews of the same headphone should be fine since we all have difference tastes and opinion

    Great review Jason. I've been a Sennheiser user since 1999. HD25SP, e2200 and my first pair of HD280Pro from 2003-2009 and bought a second pair because the headband of the first one finally broke. Although just recently, I tried the new AIAIAI TMA-1 headphones and I liked it too. Very light and feels like there's nothing on your head. The isolation is good too and the sound quality is fantastic. The build looks sturdy as well.

    The topic of the published review thread has been changed. This thread cannot be renamed.

    this topic grew to something larger than i expected. to keep things simple the official thread will contain just dj headphones. if you want to review those two items, go for it, but you will need to make a separate review.

    Technics RP-DJ 1210

    Specs
    Driver units: 41mm (1 5/8in.) diameter
    Frequency response: 5Hz - 30kHz
    Dimensions (H x W x D) 10.2" x 11.0" x 22.4"
    Weight 4.5 lbs

    Sound: 5/5 The sound quality is great with very clear highs and mids and plenty of bass. You will have no problems mixing with these. Had the chance to compare them to TMA-1s just yesterday and they sound brighter than the TMA-1s (which are know for having a warmer sound) but no difference in the quality of the sound. Id definitely recommend these if you are mixing genres with prominent highs and mids. I should point out i am basing the sound quality grade on my experience with MDR-700, TMA-1, Shure 750, HD-205.
    Sound Isolation 3/5 In my experience isolation is not bad but not great. There is some leaking from the outside but it's nothing that would terminally affect your mixing. Keep in mind these are over the ear so sound isolation was never going to be optimal.
    Durability 5/5 Yes the cord is not detachable but in 2 years of use since i got them from the previous owner i have never had an issue with it and havent heard of anyone else complain. The cord is coiled and pretty thick so it definitely can take serious punishment. I gig almost every week and in 2 years these have taken some decent abuse and never faltered. The swivel cup system is very durable compared to other methods used and cant think of a way id break it unless i intentionally forced it.
    Comfort 3/5 My vote for DJing would be 5/5 because you plain do not notice you even have these on in the constant commotion. However for just listening at home, in my case, they get very uncomfortable (tight) on my ears very quickly to the point that i have to take them off and rest a bit before going back into it. I also have a big head and big ears so this issue might be specific to me. If you are going to use them exclusively while DJing though you wont have any problems.
    One of the reasons i got these is because my previous pair of Shure 750s kept slipping off my head when i was beatmatching with 1 cup. With these i have never had that problem. Moreover, the swivel cups are just awesome since you can just rest headphones on your shoulders and prop up one of the cups 90 degrees and use it that way. Or you can leave them on your head and just push back one cup without moving the actual headband and hence having the issue of the whole thing sliding off your head. The swivel cup and its lock system definitely are great features that you might get very attached to (i know i am). Changing the cup arm length (tightening or loosening) is very easy so no problems there. The headband sits on you very comfortably, you wont even notice its there.
    Size 5/5 I bought these because my Shure 750s were just too big. I have a big head and adding big headphones to it made me look a bit ridiculous. These are the perfect size and i like the simple streamlined look with no unnecessary aesthetic features. They fold nicely and take very little space.

    Overall value 4/5 Would i buy these again for DJing? In a heartbeat. For the price you really cant beat them. However, since i plan to also use them as listening headphones I will probably be looking into the HD-25s if these ever break (so far unlikely).

    If I recall they are the same as the DJ1 Pro's. Same as the DJ1s are the HFI 580s.
