Headphone Reviews: Panasonic Technics RP-DH1250

If there's one thing about the Panasonic Technics RP-DH1250 that catches my eye, it's those ear covers that look like turntable platters. Reminds me of those Technics vinyl decks that were fun to play back in the day. But do these headphones sound as good as they look? Some online reviews are up, and the feedback is solid.

'If you've got the budget for it, and you're in need of a good pair of professional headphones, these would definitely be a great fit for a studio or DJing gig. The sound quality is nothing short of spectacular...' - gizmag

'The RP-DH1250's are a high-end set of DJ-oriented headphones, which create a sonic landscape that eclipses that of many of its competitors.' - digital trends

The sticking point here? As the reviews suggest, it's the price tag. MSRP is $270, although you can most likely find it cheaper if you shop around a bit (see below). Personally though, I think headphones can be a fashion statement, especially in the age of social media where every dj is posting photos of themselves at a club or private gig. And if your headphones sound good and look good, it's hard to ask for much more.

Of course, this is all coming from a guy who used the same pair of ripped up $90 black Sony headphones for years. But seriously - go check out random dj Facebook fan pages. You'll see what I mean.

If you have a pair of these already, feel free post your own review in the comments section below.

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com
