Best DJ Headphones for Professional Studio Sound in 2020

The best DJ headphones are an essential bit of kit, whether you are an up and coming DJ or you’ve already made it and are looking for new toys to play with. This is a list of the best headphones of 2020 so far. For a DJ, the quality of your headphones can make the difference between the next hit and just another track in the millions being made every year.

Top DJ Headphones of 2020

Pioneer Pro DJ HDJ-2000MK2-K DJ Headphones

These headphones are well-rounded in what they are able to deliver. Astonishing clarity, high-quality sound separation, and enough sound insulation when performing. They also boast a great level of comfort, which is definitely useful for when you’re playing those long sets and a cheap pair of headphones would cause discomfort.

Although beautiful and high quality, the general consensus is mixed here. It’ll definitely fall down to your preference simply due to the number of other headphones on the market and what you find valuable in a good pair of headphones. If you’re looking for high-quality sound, separation, and insulation with an ample amount of comfort, these are a good choice. There may well be better value headphones on the market with better durability but comfort is something that Pioneer has definitely strived for with the Pro DJ MK2.

+ Lovely banding that allows for a snug fit, which complements the sound insulation.
+ High-quality sound.
+ The newer ones have metal parts for incredible durability.

Why We Liked It – Snug, comfortable, and high quality-sound are definitely apparent here but the value for money may not be quite right, depending on what you’re looking for.

Sennheiser HD 25 Professional DJ Headphones

The first thing most people notice when they look at the HD 25 Pro from Sennheiser is the curious structure of the headband. This odd structure is what will make the Sennheiser headphones stand out from the crowd. The Sennheiser HD 25 model hasn’t changed at all in recent years, with the motto “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” being at the heart of the structure. Although it looks funky it doesn’t really provide any benefits to durability.

Unfortunately, these headphones aren’t really different when it comes to the materials used for the ear pads, making them very uncomfortable when using them for prolonged periods of time. Sennheiser prefers to focus purely on audio quality rather than making it look fancy and comfortable. They come with a 2-year manufacturer warranty. This is useful if you’re a resident DJ because unless you are performing somewhere that pays obscenely well, and unless you’re among the likes of Martin Garrix, then you will definitely be thankful that you have that warranty.

+ The different headband structure definitely makes for an interesting, unique look.
+ High-quality sound packed into lightweight, compact pair of headphones.
+ The HD 25 Pro is renowned for sound quality even at higher pressure levels.

Why We Liked It – The general consensus is that these headphones are incredible. With their amazing sound quality, these are definitely a smart purchase with a huge value for money attached.
