The sound, fit, and function is perfect for DJing. Exceptionally tight bass that poo poos all over anything by Sony (700, V6/7506, 7509), Koss, or Ixos, and the mids and highs are nicely balanced. There's a slight (and I do mean slight) excess of bass, but it's in a way that lends itself to mixing and is never muddy and muffled. Etymotic's high end in-ear stuff obviously does better on the bass (as well as everywhere else) but that's a different beast. Unfortunately, the 1000's break. First thing to go is usually the slide joint. You'll notice they keep slipping on one side (left usually) and tightening the screw will eventually strip it. The solution is to superglue the sliders (open them up completely) then tape the outside with scotch tape, which is nearly invisible. A perfect solution, assuming you won't ever get to adjust the size again to anyone else's head. However, that's not the biggest problem. The plastic between the ball joint and the horseshoe shaped piece that contacts the driver housing will eventually crack and break completely. This usually occurs on the right side more, though by that time you'll see cracking on the left, too. It can happen out of nowhere one day and is catastrophic. For the price, this is totally unacceptable construction on Pioneer's part. They have been replacing them like gangbusters to people who have the problem, but you pay the shipping cost and there's no end to the number of headphones you'll go through. As far as I know, they haven't fixed it. Mine just went after only about 6 months. There are people on the Pioneer forum on their 5th one. They sound that good and work that well for DJing, but at this point I'm about ready to try the Senn 25. I've been to Numark hell and back about 11 times, and I don't want to start another cycle with a different product.

i am a dj and i always baby my equipment. I have had 3 pairs of these head phones and I think I will finally stop buying this head phone because it isnt really sturdy. All 3 times the head phone seemed to break at the swivel joint after a couple of months of use. Dont get me wrong the quality of the head phones is superior in my opinion just the cheap plastic parts that seem to break at the same spots is what bothers me. So far ive invested about 450 dollars in 3 headphones and that is why i am going to look for another headphone

The reviewer before summed up these headphones and their shortcomings wonderfully so I simply want to add my voice to his comments. They DO BREAK; I guess I'm lucky in that mine lasted for just over a year. They sound FANTASTIC, the best I've used, but I've just written Pioneer to try and have them replaced. For $120 pair of phones I should be listening to these 10 years from now, not looking for gobs of tape and super glue just to listen to them only 1 year later. I havea feeling that if you reinforced that area with some tape they'd not break, or at least not for quite a while... kind of silly, but yeah, they sound GREAT.

-----EDIT BELOW-----
First off, I like these headphones enough to have had several pairs over the years despite their foibles. The main reason is the excellent sound. The highs are very clear but are never tinny, the low end is full and tight, never muddy, and mid range sounds including human voice and many instruments are well reproduced and have substantial body. The frequency response of these headphones is greater than that of many peoples hearing, so you can be sure the headphones will generate any sound you can pick up, that is they wont drop very hi or low frequency sounds. This frequency response coupled with a good efficiency (dB) makes for a superb listening experience; you'll be amazed at how much more of your music there is to hear. A handy small feature is that the cord is user replaceable, so no need to replace the headphones if the plug or cord is damaged.
On the downside, they are made out of rather cheap feeling plastic which seems apt to snap under tension, though the padding is comfortable, and the folding and swiveling earpieces make various listening styles easy including DJing which they are largely made for. Additionally, I have found that these are uncomfortable after an hour or two of use, because they seem to compress your ears/head, that the tension in the band piece going over your head is too stiff. The pads of the earpieces themselves are soft and accommodate most ears well though and are resistant to sweat and stain. These are slightly heavy but only due to the quality/heft of the drivers.
Overall, these are an excellent pair of headphones, and to me provide the highest quality of listening experience for my music, if not always the best comfort.

The Pros: Fantastic quality of sound. Very sturdy, reliable. Those who say they break easily, apparently have failed to understand how to and what for to use them. No, they are not you pillow. Not your seat cushion either. I've had them for about two years now and they look, feel and sound like new.

Very nice looking headphones, too.

The Cons. Somewhat heavy, not very comfy (The Sennheiser HD555 are the most comfortable cans I've ever owned, but the Pioneers sound better). As it is common to all the closed type headphones, on rare occasions, when playing some abnormally low and powerful bass, the sound waves get trapped inside the cups and cause bad distortion. It happens very rarely, though. Overall excellent product.
