Sennheiser has launched a line of dedicated DJ headsets (the original Sennheiser HD 25 has by chance become a classic DJ, as it must have been versatile headphones). HD8 DJ is its flagship model and shows: its mostly metallic construction is quite compact, its excellent sound and the right amount of high-end accessories for the DJ that sounds.
Revised by DJs as the two sound engineers, the original HD 25 from Sennheiser has been the perfect headset for decades. The Sennheiser HD 25 Plus is an improved version of the classic, and comes with extra velvet pads, taking a right angle, a carrying bag, and an extra spiral cord to avoid inconvenience to the DJ booth.
The Pioneer DJ HDJ headset series is a true workaholic: the HDJ-1000 and HDJ-1500 are popular models for beginner and intermediate DJs.

It’s sleek, incredibly sturdy and comes with a high-quality trim that is expected from a top plate model, which includes a zippered case and detachable headphone cables. The sound insulation of the HDJ-2000MK2 is one of the best we’ve heard regarding DJ headphones, making it ideal for DJ, even in the most extravagant club environments.
