My first Closed headphones

31.12.2015
First of all, let's make 1 thing very clear. I am no professional, no audiophile, and no expert. OK, with that out of way, let's talk headphones.

I'm a PC gamer, audio enthusiast and generally love and appreciate good and quality sound and audio gear.

I have a pair of Sennheiser HD555's and numerous earbuds, and now I got myself the HD8 DJ's.
I use a Fiio E11K (Kiliamnjaro) headphone AMP to run these two headphones.
Although it's not needed for the HD555's it is a great tool to have no matter what headphones I use.

My audio device is my PC and my smartphone (Sony Z3C) + Fiio.

I will compare the DJ's only to the 555's as best as I can.

So, as 555's are an open pair you know that they have a MUCH wider sound stage than the DJ's, and that is evident in Game's and Movie's, but in music not so much as one would think (me for ex.).
I was so afraid of the BASS that everyone was talking about, because, although I love BASS, I have tried some other headphones that just plain suck because of bass bleed in mid and sometimes in highs as well.
Not the case here, the DJ's have BASS, and plenty of it, but it's so well controlled and produced that you actually appreciate it even more.
Sound isolation when the music is on is something I have not experienced yet with any other headphone (tried numerous gaming headsets), and you don't have to crank the volume high to achieve shit.
One thing I noticed in all sound isolating headphones is that you can hear your heartbeat and that is sometimes weird (not present when music is on). You don't get that in OPEN style headphones.

Anyway, back to the DJ's.
They are built like a TANK, they are smaller than my HD555's by quite a bit, especially the ear cups. But, having said that, the ear cups are more than big enough to fit around your ear, unless you have elephant earlobes :)

They clamp quite a bit, but are not uncomfortable at all, and me being used to velour ear cups thought my ears would burn up in these FO-leather ones, but they didn't.
Matter of fact, I like them better than the velour ones.

The included items are AWESOME. Thomann's service is something every shop should strive for.

I'm one happy customer, and I can definitely recommend these headphones to anyone who listens to any kind of music except for maybe classical and some vocal only music (opera I guess :)).
Everything else just sounds so great that you will enjoy it all over again!

Money well spent on these, and not to mention that at the moment of purchase Thomann has the lowest price in the world for these cans.

As a DJ I've tried many headphones, this one ticks all the marks

Djaypee, 27.02.2018
I want my headphones to completely cover my ears so that I have the best insulation from the club's speakers. I want my headphones to have a clean sound, with very clear kick and bass and not tiring in the mid-highs and highs. I want them to be comfortable and solid. I've got all of this with the HD-8 DJs, and I've been happily using it in many clubs and bars.
