Headphone Reviews: Panasonic Technics RP-DH1250

http://cdn.panasonic.com/dotAsset/9e8c392c-f872-484f-873e-b191d4d8ccd5.jpg

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.

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation. Some other key-compatible tracks: Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes
