I've had a few sets of headphones, but these have the best sound quality of any pair I've ever owned. Mids and Highs are really crispy and let you hear all the nuances of the music. Bass is well balanced, not booming so if you're looking for that these may not be for you...no Beats boom in your ear, which I thought I'd miss but its a fair trade for a more balanced sound. These are really comfortable headphones. The ear cups are soft, but form a great barrier on the ear to isolate the music from the outside sounds. The headband is has a generous amount of cushioning. I've worn these to about 4 gigs all of which were about 4 hours and didn't have any fatigue from my ears etc. Comes with great right angle cables 1 coiled and 1 braided, both of which are great cables. Also the foot print is small as the headphones fold up really compactly which being a mobile DJ is appreciated considering the space sometimes comes at a premium.
Only 2 gripes about the headphones in general. I love the XLR cable connection it's really solid, but its only on the left ear cup. On my mixer the jack is on the right so I have to have the cable come across me in the front since I usually monitor with my left ear, minor again but for the price I'd like to have the option to connect it to either ear cup.
2. The price is a little high in my opinion. I know you have to pay to play. Also with the specs and durability, hopefully I won't need a new set of headphones for quite some time. They also have cheaper option such as the X7- which to my knowledge is the replacement for the 2000MKII. So price doesn't have to be an issue.
I trust pioneer products so I trust that these will last for some years.
All in all I've loved my MKII and I gifted them to a friend and bought these. These are an upgrade so if you've been a fan you'll be even more of a fan.
