What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer HDJ-500 BLACK DJ headphones
  • The pads are memory foam encased in leather and are extremely comfortable.
  • They look pretty slick, complete with some neat creature features.
  • The quality is absolutely first rate, with the headphones being re enforced with magnesium, the earcups being covered in real leather.
  • These headphones do not fold up and that may be their only drawback in my eyes.
  • Not exactly the most durable pair of headphones, the plastic feels quite cheap and they snapped on both sides after a few months.
Pioneer HDJ-1500 Traditional Headphones
  • They felt like one of the more comfortable pairs of headphones on display and didn't produce the slight echo-shell effect.
  • These headphones are literally superb, they are very well built and have a cold metal feel with a well engineered heavy touch to them.
  • They sit very comfortably, pleasant embrasures, good quality detachable twisted cable.
  • I do not like the shape of the darling - it looks like it was stretched up.
  • Over time, the part connecting the speaker frame and the arm began to crumble.
