    Hello,
    I'll need quite urgently to buy a low budget set for Dj monitoring.
    I won't expect high quality.
    But, in your experience, which headphones set have you tried and will you recommend?
    Price will be from £20/25 and below.

    AKG K518LE if you can still get them.

    They were exclusive to hard to find records at the time, did HTFR go down a few months ago?

    regardless, I bagged mine for £25 from HTFR on sale, literally THE best headphones for that money. They kick the living shit out of my reloops that cost over twice that.

    Its that old saying buy once never buy again.
    Sennheiser HD 25 II. Nothing else cuts the mustard.

    I've been very lucky for Xmas however and will be bagging the Adidas Senny's as i've had my black Senny's for a long long time.

    Don't worry Dubsta, I'm definetely not going to use any DJ headphones for production. I've got my Beyerdynamic for that.
    I had the pioneer hdj1000 for years, but really pissed off when, after blowing the membrane, I discovered I cannot replace it...
    Also blowed AKG.
    So, no more investing for cue monitor.
    I preferre spending for studio.

    I'll try the Sony.
