  • Shure SRH840, SRH440 & SRH240 Closed Back Studio Headphones

    Shure have just launched a brand new range of closed back studio and DJ headphones that have already been getting quite a bit of interest since news of the pricing was leaked on Head-Fi.org.

    Full size headphones is a new departure for Shure, as they are known best for their in-ear sound isolating earphones.  Initial user reviews suggest that the Shure SRH840 sound like a 'Shure SE530 with sparklier treble', which can only be a good thing.

    Those lucky enough to get their hands on review samples of the Shure SRH840 have commented on the huge soundstage considering that this headphone is a closed back design.  Read one Head-fi members review of the Shure SRH840.

    We're really excited about this range of headphones and itching to get out hands on initial stock to give them a proper review.

  • New WeSC Sitar & Bag Pipe Headphones - bright colours and high quality sound

    WeSC Sitar Folding Headphones

    WeSC Sitar
    We have just taken delivery of the brand new WeSC Sitar headphones.  The Sitar headphones comes in a range of cool colours and a stylish design that should satisfy the most fashion conscious listener.

    The Sitar is a surprisingly lightweight headphone and has handy rotating ear pieces, making it possible to use them for DJ monitoring.  The sound quality is superb, with plenty of bass and good reproduction of higher frequencies.

    The Sitar's earpads sit on the top of the ears, rather than enclosing them completely, so while they seal out some noise they do let some external sound in.

    Over the last year WeSC have been consistently releasing headphones with funky designs and compared with some of the other 'trendy' headphones on offer we have been very impressed with the sound quality of WeSC's headphones.

    If you are looking for stylish DJ headphones in cool colours then another option is the WeSC Bag Pipe. The WeSC Bag Pipe has larger ear pieces than the Sitar, which means they are better at isolating you from external noise than the Sitar.

    The sound quality with the WeSC Bag Pipe is equally as good as the Sitar, but in our opinion a bit better suited to DJ use as there seems to be less emphasis on the bass and more on the mids/highs.  This makes the Bag Pipe a little better for cueing up the next tune as you can discern more of the detail in the mix.

  • DJ Headphones - Choosing the best DJ headphones

    Technics DJ HeadphonesChoosing the best DJ headphones can be difficult - it's a big decision.  If you're a DJ then you will no doubt be very careful about the headphones you choose for monitoring.  While it's possible to DJ with a pair of ordinary Hi-Fi headphones, you will likely not be very happy with the result.

    DJ monitoring has some very specific requirements, which are quite different to other types of listening.  This article is meant to offer some advice with choosing the best pair of DJ headphone.  DJing presents a tough listening environment and you will need to ensure you have the right equipment to be successful and get the most out of it.

    Below are a few key points to think about when choosing DJ headphones.

    Good isolation from external sound

    While you cue up the next track you need to be able to monitor without interference from the sound being played over the speakers, so headphones with good sound isolation are a must

    Good DJ headphones are nearly always of the closed back (or sealed) design, which means you can focus on getting the beats matched perfectly without any external distractions.

    Swivel earcups

    When you think you got the beat match spot on you will want to compare the beats of your new tune with the sound coming out of the speakers.  Swivel earcups are a convenient way of monitoring the audio coming through the speakers. You just rotate one earcup and hey presto you can hear your new track and the existing track.  Also convenient for chatting with friends nearby while you mix!

    For example the Sennheiser HD25 DJ headphones have rotating earcups and also conveniently have a headphone cable that comes from a single earcup, meaning you are less likely to get tangled up in the cord when you are jumping up and down behind the decks.

    Clarity at high volume levels

    The listening environment while DJing is often very noisy, even if it's just at home with the speakers turned up loud.  You will need your DJ headphones to be able to cut through the external noise and this may mean turning them up loud for short periods.  A good quality pair of DJ headphones are able to be driven at high volumes without distortion.

    Some DJ headphones may even sound a little biased towards mids and treble, which is to help you distinguish audio cues in the music.

    Long term listening comfort

    As a DJ you may have to wear your headphones for hours at a time, so headphone fit and comfort are vital.  Ears that are hurting will not help your mixing skills.  The best DJ headphones have comfortable earpads and are lightweight.
