Pioneer hdj 1000..best headphones I've ever had, sturdy as fuck .. big long lead.....crystal clear sound...gone through so many sonys & it's always the same problem..one ear comes off...not mine mind but the headphones..sennheis ers are definately the most comfortable but they're not loud enough for my deaf ears

i use the black sony's, MDR-V500s and have for the past few years. i think they're designed better since they have smaller earpieces than the massive silver jobs, which usually break at the swivel point on the ear. my black sonys only have electrical tape on the jack, as a prevative measure since the jack casing was starting to break.

that said, i think sennheisers are better. and they sell spare parts.

One drawback with the HD25s is the cable is very short, didn't realise it until they arrived ![/QUOTE]

Thats true but, they have fork clips into the headphone from the cable and if you stand on them they just pop out! I could mix all night, and have mixed all night with the sennheiser light comfortable, you can throw them around your neck and listen to them on your shoulder and they dont cut off the blood circulation to your head! They have a solid bassy punch, but have very good high frequency response, its mid range isnt great but mid frequency sounds shit anyway!

I prefer the supraaural ear coupling (worn on the external ear) of the Sennheiser
to the circumaural ear coupling (surrounding the whole ear) of the sony because you get a more direct sound too your ear with Senns whereas its a broader sound with the sony a little bit vague!

I think that the sony are way too loud and that its more like two speakers on your head than a set of headphones. I think that you lose alot of sound definition this way!
thats my 10 cents anywho! all in all sonys are for djs who have damaged their hearing and need loud cans to play in clubs, and sennheisers are just sweet as!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.sonystyle.com/intershopro...HQS=headphones

even sonys website is a pain in the hole!

PS i have used both these headphones equally for a couple of years and they are both good headphones just took me this long to pick one!

Nah, that would definitely partly explain my preference.
