DJs look for more than just sound quality and noise isolation when shopping for headphones. They need a pair that are durable enough to stand up to the rigors of life in the club. The Sennheiser HD8 DJ headphones are rock solid, with a metal frame and hinges, along with strong reinforcements to handle consistent wear and tear. Based on their DJ-favorite HD 25 headphones, Sennheiser created a new design with larger, swiveling circumaural earcups for single- or double-ear monitoring in noisy clubs. Just because these headphones are tough, doesn't mean they aren't comfortable. Thick padding on the earcups and headband offer a relaxed fit throughout long sets and deep into the night. All this plus powerful sound make the HD8 DJ an ideal go-to headphone for working DJs.
DJ headphones benefit from a particular sound signature, which the HD8 DJ headphones deliver with power and punch. Powerful bass response and lots of high-frequency detail allow the music in the headphones to cut through the background noise of the club. These headphones also get plenty loud enough to make sure you can hear your monitor track. However, with the HD8 DJ's passive noise attenuation capability, you won't have to crank up the music to ear-damaging levels.
Choose from straight and coiled cables when connecting the HD8 to your DJ rig, mixing board, or headphone amp. Each cable extends to an extra-long 118 inches and can be plugged into either the left or right earcup. This gives you increased setup flexibility while you spin, so you can move easily between turntables and record crates. Also included are a rugged carrying case and an extra set of earpads, just in case you wear out the first pair.
