Overview of DJ Headphones

That’s what makes good DJ headphones
The magic acronym “DJ” has obviously become the favorite prefix of all marketing departments in recent years. And every headphone that isn’t at three on the tree – or on the listener’s head – is suddenly declared a DJ headphone. Not everything with “DJ” on it is really a sovereign work tool for tough club use. On the other hand, it’s actually not that difficult to be “good” DJ headphones.

Three things make good DJ headphones – the obligation…

1. Proper isolation from ambient noise so that the record player can control his rhythmic activity as precisely as possible.
2. A clearly defined sound with plenty of volume reserves (important: the right impedance ). It may well have a little more boost in the bass range and have a little more character than studio headphones , for example .
3. A seat that is as comfortable as it is secure on the head of the record player (ideally with rotating ear cups). And of course, the near-ear sound system has to be really robust, because no other type of headphone is expected to do so much thermally and mechanically.

…and the freestyle

Features such as replaceable connection cables and ear pads or a mechanism for folding the work device during transport are then optional.
You’ll notice that in some areas it’s not that different from what studio or hi-fi headphones , for example, are supposed to be able to do. The first DJ headphones were often studio models that DJs simply misused. Accordingly, there is a whole range of headphones that do not have a “DJ” in their name and are nevertheless ideal for use in the DJ booth and have often even become a standard.
