Yeah. But these are seriously style over substance.
They are technically HD25 1 II 's. But with blue cups and an adidas logo on it. Wow.

Just get the plain black version and you'll look more of a pro and less like a fashionista.
They are great headphones and I use them on tour and at gigs all the time but I'd never pay an extra few quid to have day-glo blue cups and a big branded logo on them.

Cheap black version here:

Well worth the money for audiophiles and disque jockeys.

I agree, I have a pair of the black ones and wouldnt pay the extra, i thought this version might appeal to people more on here, especially with such a saving on the normal price. I have mentioned that play are doing the black ones, with the different cable lengths, all for £127.99, cheaper than the usual £139.99.

Although a classic piece of DJ hardware, is it just me that thinks the HD's are begining to show their age now?

In what way? In quality, no. In looks, only when compared to all the fancy stuff on the market. Perhaps thats why they've released the adidas versions.

Don't get me wrong, I've owned a pair for the best part of 20 years (In fact mine originally came with a british airways headband...oO) and they still sound very sharp, but I tried a pair of HDJ2000's the other day and they just sounded better at reproducing low frequencies and Muuuuuch louder.

btw: I always stood by my HD's and they were never popular amongst the fashionista's. They are a definate trainspotters piece of hardware. :D

I guess it depends what you use them for. I don't disagree, there are probably many pairs out there that sound better. For normal listning these aren't the best, for djing/sound monitoring they are extrememly good. For what I use them for I think the purchase of these would just swing it over any others by the fact that if something breaks the part can be replaced. If any other headphones break youre looking at a new pair.
#8
True. I've been through a few sets of ear pads and cables.
#9
Good deal for very versatile headphones. Allegedly better than most full-size at price for rock music whatever that is :) Not too big and excellent isolation so can double as portables.
Who knows, the fancy colours might attract some folk away from certain less worthy products...

Might be better link :

After something a bit more "upmarket" perhaps. Check "well known auction site" for Sennheiser Orpheus oO

It's worth pointing out that there's no guarantee that Dr Dre headphones purchased on "well known auction site" will have genuine Dr Dre quality. Expect there are other advantages too...

You know what it's like when you look over the fence...The grass is always greener ... ;)
The'll still have to prize my HD's out of my dead hands come judgement day, but damn those HDJ2000 have some kick.

Edit:

Actually on thinking about it, perhaps I've gone a bit mutton in my old age and the HDJ's are just louder....:)

and Teeheehee at Dr Dre's....lol yeah right..

I feel a bit guilty now for putting a downer on your deal at the start of the day.

They are a CRACKING set of headphones for DJing. Undoubtably.
I was a stalwart for using Sony MDV 700's for about 7 years - thinking that there was nothing better.

Last year, my second set had their day and it was time to use another set. I 'borrowed' Busy P's once during a set as he had left them on the CDJs after his set - and since then, I knew I'd never want to DJ with anything else.

They are lightweight, durable and very good for attenuation of baselines and trebles. Probably the only things you ever need to do DJing.

Not attractive by any stretch of the mark - but thats not really the point. They are for sound orientated people who prefer their technology to the job rather than to show off.

If you want to show off - get some rip off Dr Dres or WESC Oboes.

For iPhone use I personally use Sennheiser MN 450's. Pricey - but the quality is always top notch with Sennheiser rather than fancy logos and colours. If you want that - buy a bloody t-shirt!

Busy P was at Bang the Box in Shorditch a few weeks back. Rocked the joint apparently? Been meaning to get down there.
