What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Pioneer HDJ-X5-S Professional DJ Headphone, SILVER
  • They are very light, comfortable, can handle the volume, and most important, sound super.
  • Very pleased. Went from some big heavy clunky razer tiamat 7.1s to these. They are light, comfortable, and deliver great sound.
  • Light weight, you can wear them for hours without any noticeable head fatigue.
  • They are super lightweight and comfortable, they don't make you feel like you're in a pressure chamber.
  • Very lightweight and comfortable on your head. I have a large head and this fits no problem.
Sennheiser HD 25
  • Compact, light, great frequency response, convenient swiveling on the earpieces, all in all, excellent headphones for DJs!
  • I use them everyday (music production) and they're light-weight and this is a brand who cares about sound so much.
  • Lightweight, comfortable, and versatile make these perfect for run and gun video/film style.
  • Nice sound and not too heavy to wear. The coiled cable is much heavier than strait so you can make them more lighter.
  • Sounds good, easy to repair, light and comfortable. This is obviously a reliable workhorse set of headphones.

What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer HDJ-X5-S Professional DJ Headphone, SILVER
  • I like the sound quality, i suggests setting a custom equalizer , bass is good (i got a 1200 rms subwoofer in my car, so i heard bass before ). It’s functional for traveling.
  • I really like the comfort and sound of these headphones. The lows are excellent for hip hop.
  • Booming bass, suppressed mids and scratchy highs. These headphones lend their own characteristics to your music above all else.
  • These are not loud enough in high noise situations like a nightclub.
  • They have to much pressure on the ear, and the ear cups are small. Great sound but not worth the pain.
Sennheiser HD 25
  • The range of the HD 25's is very good; I feel the bass is rich and and mids/highs are crisp.
  • Sennheiser has found a good balance between low and high range frequencies. I cranked my volume pretty high and I did not hear any clipping or distortion.
  • These headphones have very good sound clarity with minimal false coloring across all frequencies and provide a noticeable depth of sound stage.
  • Great volume, articulate bass and clean frequency response.
  • The only thing I would change is adding the option for a cord with mic and volume control and for them to go just a tad louder.
