DJ heaphones for producing

Hello!

I've been spending all my available resources on gear lately and have made it to the point where i don't have any money to buy everything the way i'd like (it was never like this, but i still had money).

I'm trying to produce house music, i also DJ.

Basically what i'm looking for is a pair of headphones that will do two things - be punchy and isolated enough to hear them well while cuing (dj'ing) but also have a wide frequency response and be balanced enough to produce bassy sounds, mix my projects. One really important thing is that cans must rotate at least 90 degrees.

They need to be low impedance (Probably 32 OHM?) as i don't have the budget to buy amps and am gonna use Traktor Kontrol S4's built in pre-amps and audio card.

Not sure if anything exists that would do this. Tried googling, can't find anything that really fits, with the info provided on official pages.

Hoped that anyone is into DJ'ing and uses his cans for producing aswell..

P.S i understand that i ask a lot, but in case anyone does this, it would greatly appreciated that you shared the model..

The money i'm ready to spend is around 200-300 EUR.

Thank you!

I'll second the sony mdr's. The frequencey response has always been the best for the price. I cant say ive ever used anything else honestly.

Re: DJ heaphones for producing

If I were you, I would get separate headphones. I've been DJing in clubs with some great Audio Technica M40X headphones for a while, and they weren't expensive. The sound on them is clear and heavy.

I also use Sennhesier HD6 Mix headphones for production, and they've served me well so far.

You should definitely be able to get two pairs of headphones for your budget.

I'm now looking at the HD6 Mix, how much did you spend on them? They are 229 EUR in Latvia,
and look appealing for my needs, but i dont really want to buy two cheaper models atm as i will probably buy another quality ones later..

Have you tried these for DJing, are they well isolated and punchy enough?

Thanks to everyone else too! I'm looking through all these options. I actually tought that Sonys are restricted in EU due to their loudness, but i guess its a different model..

P.S i get it now, they dont rotate

Re: DJ heaphones for producing

I think I paid about 120, so your price in Latvia is a bit on the steep side. I got them from a store called GAK, who are very reliable. Have a look if you're still interested.

I haven't used them for DJing though. They give a flat frequency response, so the bass isn't boosted, unlike my other headphones I use for DJing.

I am using my Sennheiser HD25-1 for last 6 years, and am ok with them, but thinking it would be better to buy some studio headphones, Focals look great.

Yes Man! i actually purchased those because a local DJ recommended them and i am more than satisfied, punchy and actually really clean sound. The price/quality ratio is just incredible with these

AKG K240 are Ok, just watch out the device impedance for compatibility.
