    Really great option for the price


    For the price these are great for the price. I got these to compare to my discontinued PRO500's that I currently use for DJing. I love how clean the PRO5's are, and they take advantage of Dolby Atmos separation [currently testing them with my PC]. The upper frequencies stay clean and don't get screechy with increased volume, and the lower frequencies are present, but not as immersive as the PRO500's, but more than the M50x's. There's a lot "phatness" missing, but it's still very enjoyable. I can't wait to see how they hold up in club environments, but I'm not ready to retire my PRO500's just yet. Clean sound, very comfy compared to the PRO500's, very balanced, and for the price there's not going to be much in the market that can beat them overall. Very happy to have them in the arsenal.

  • Q & A

    Where can I buy a replacement audio cable for these headphones?


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    I am looking for a compatible 2.5mm to 3.5mm MIC cable I could use with these cans. Is this a 2.5 mm standard stereo plug or a special locking terminal ?


    Thank you for you inquiry. This is a locking 2.5 MM connector.


    Does it come with a case?


    Thank you for your inquiry. No they do not come with a case or soft pouch.
