    They snap, I've been through 2 pairs and they break at a silly thin bit of plastic on the hinge. Bastards, sound fairly nice but not worth it.

    I went for the 2000's, mainly because I got the money off because of my 1000's breaking again. Theyre a lot more comfortable, and sound pretty good still, and being metal and all that jazz they shouldnt break as easy, the hinges look and feel a lot more solid.

    I'd go somewhere where you can try a few different pairs, see what you like best, if your using something a fair amount you want to make sure your happy with it.

    £140 but they are the most robust and best sounding DJ headphones out there. I've had mine for 6 years and only had to replace the earpads.

    Don't confuse them with the HD-25SP which are half the price and not as robust.

    What Gloxxy said. Except no subsitutes.

    Managed to get a second hand pair for £60 off ebay in decent condition about 3 years and still have no problems with them.

    They're the best for the reason, sturdy pieces of kit with outstanding sound output. Highly recommended as I'm sure you've heard before.
