Dr. Dre Beats to Pioneer: Headphones for the Music Buff

Comfort is key when it comes to choosing the right pair of headphones. Of course you have to really weigh your wants and needs because a lot of the top of the line headphones are fairly similar in specs. Sometimes that additional 10,000hz of frequency can make all the difference.

Dr. Dre Studio Headphones, $349.95 When I first heard about these headphones I didn't think I'd be impressed. I figured I was due for a new pair of headphones (I recently started DJing again) and this was love at first try-on. These are one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever tried on and the music quality is just as impressive, as well as the noise canceling feature. They fold up and come with a carrying case for easy transport to and from shows. I love the simplistic, no fuss design, you certainly don't want to worry about how you and your headphones look while trying to concentrate on the music.

Sony MDR V700 Headphones, $100.91 These headphones are professional DJ quality for a substantially lower price than the average pro headphones. The features include swivel, auto return swivel and reversible earcups, 10 foot expanding cord and a frequency range of 20-20,000Hz.

Pioneer HDJ-2000 Professional DJ Headphones, $249.00 Are in the middle price range compared to the other two. These headphones have the ability to fold, swivel and are noise canceling like the others, but the frequency range is slightly better than the Sony headphones at 5Hz - 30kHz.
