Ok first of all I want to say I don't really have any basis for comparison here. I was looking around for DJ headphones for a while, reading reviews, comparing prices. Lets cut a long story short; it came to two options in the end which were the "Sony MRD-V700" or "Ultrasone DJ1". Similar price range, both designed for DJing applications but can be used with anything (I use mine with my Walkman a lot).

So after researching both models I decided to go for the Ultrasone DJ1s, and all I can say is that the sound is so amazing and real! I would advise to research these on YouTube and have a look on Ultrasone's website too. Explains a lot.

*Really good isolation
*Patented S-Logic Plus Technology
*Offset driver reduces hearing damage (very impressive)
*Natural Surround

I cannot recommend these enough, specially if you mix or listen to Trance like me!!

The only reason I gave 4 stars is because they get a bit heavy after long listening sessions. Maybe I just have a really weird shaped head. I dont know.

Ultrasone is known as the best brand of headphone for electronic music mainly because it has the fattest bass of all the headphones. If you are a basshead, then this headphone is for you. You simply will not get more quality bass from any other headphone at this price point.

The quality alternatives are Sony XB700, DT 700 Pro 80, the Denon D2000 and M50. But strictly in terms of Bass, this Ultrasone 580/DJ1 sits at the top of the pile.

This model is also considered the most popular model out of the HFI series and have the most bass. (DJ1 = HFI 580 but with coiled cord and DJ1 Pro = Pro 550)

The HFI 680 is harder to drive and have the least bass out of the HFI series. Frankly if you aren't into fat bass then the Denon would be better and more rounded headphone beating the 680 in every way.

The HFI 780 is more balance and more detailed sounding than HFI 580. However, the highs might come across as too much for some people and there is slightly less bass than HFI 580. Also, this headphone seem to have comfort issues for a few people. Although the sound quality is a tad better compared to HFI 580, it is just not as fun a headphone to listen to but there are quite a lot of people buying this model as well.

The Pro series of Ultrasone would require amping and the only models worth looking at are Pro 750 and Pro 900. Personally, if you were to go the Ultrasone route, it would be best to buy HFI 580/DJ1 then Pro 900 + amp and miss the middle models.

The S-Logic technology is where the music is suppose to be directed around your ears so you don't get it going directing into your ears. This should create an effect of a larger soundstage even for a close headphone. Some people say it might take time to get use to it..

You won't be disappointed 16 July 2007
By Altair - Published on Amazon.com
I was a little skeptical of these headphones when I first looked at them but after reading sparkling reviews of them on a few audio sites I decided to give them a try. They came with a CD that had some sample songs on it, apparently to "test drive" the headphones with. I plugged them in, popped in the CD and took them off almost immediately I was so surprised.

It's a little disconcerting the first time you hear them, you'd swear the artist is performing in the very room you're in until you take them off. Every set of headphones I've listened to, including my friends' Bose Quietcomfort 2's and Sennheiser HD280 Pros, still sound like you're listening to headphones. By that I mean the music is coming from right next to your head and you can tell by the sound of it. With these it's closer to being in a room with a high quality surround setup, it's not perfect but it's amazingly good.

The sound quality of these is nothing short of stellar, I listened to most of the Ultrasone sample CD (not really my style of music but it still sounded amazing) then figured that they probably included the CD just to make you go "Wow!" and that they would sound more like everyday headphones with regular music. After going through various MP3's in my collection and even trying them with Pandora streaming radio they still impress.

The highs are perfect, everything is clear and sounds natural without overpowering the rest of the music. Without adjusting any EQ's on my media player the sound is very accurate and perfectly balanced. The bass is once again very tight and accurate without obstructing the rest of the music. That being said I like a little extra bass sometimes, turn up the bass on your EQ and you won't be disappointed. I'm not an audiophile and I don't have a degree in audio engineering but I love music. If I'm near anything that can play back songs I'm listening to music, I've never heard it sound better than with these Ultrasone's

OUTSTANDING!!! 22 Feb 2008
By Mikey - Published on Amazon.com
These by far are the best headphones out there. You will be impressed with the sound, the fit and the price. I'm not a DJ or someone in the music industry, I'm simply a person with an ipod and an ear for quality sound. I got a pair for my birthday last year from my wife. About 10 months later, I made the mistake of leaving them around my 6yrs old son who loves to pull on things.
Now that my birthday is here again, I've decided to get myself another pair. Trust me, once you listen to your music with these, ALL other headphones just doesn't cut it. They're perfect for DVD's, Ipods and devices that support Surround Sound.
My next pair WILL BE the HFI 780, I consider those to be the 'upgrade'.

Quality Headphones. Consider greatly for budgets under 150. 6 Oct 2011
By PKayy - Published on Amazon.com

If you're looking for headphones around 100-150 dollars and looking to get the best deal like I was, this is the review for you.

There are many aspects of this pair of headphones that make it stand out.

Sound Quality: With an unique sound-stage, comparably different from other headphones such as Sennheisers, it's a quality of sound that I prefer over other headphones. These headphones are ideal for people who enjoy rock, hip hop, and electronic music. (I cannot attest for the others because there are many genres I have not heard on these headphones.) It has great bass, a perfect amount for your music listening needs (doesn't thump, not too murky). Bass and sound quality becomes more defined and clear as more hours are spent on the headphones. (You can just leave them playing for hours at a time -- This is called the burn in period.) These headphones require a large amount of burn-in time/use to improve sound quality.

Sound Isolation/Leakage: I find that these headphones don't leak sound at all at reasonable/slightly high volumes. I don't listen to incredibly loud music so I'm not sure if it leaks sound. I haven't had a single complaint. (I would hope so, since it's a closed pair of headphones) A decent volume on the headphones drown out all sound around you, perfect for that office worker or that college student looking to listen to music while doing work.

Size/Portability: These headphones are of a medium size, not incredibly large, but not very portable. If you're looking for portability, you probably have better options than the DJ1's. The DJ1's come with a little carrying bag with the Ultrasone logo. If you're looking to carry around the headphones, it's a decent accessory to have. The bag offers no protection unfortunately, (unlike the DJ1 Pro's, a step-up, that comes with a carrying case) so I'd be careful just in case.

Style: They're a nice white color but for those of you who don't know, the DJ1's has a twin, the HFI-580. It is reportedly the same pair of headphones, except with a silver finish and with a straight cable. You have two good choices of style, same quality headphones, and I'm sure you'll like one or the other.

Comfort: This is the biggest drawback of the headphones. The headphones are awkwardly padded with leather cushion on the top of the headphones. At first I found it painful to wear after about an hour or so. I may just have a big head but other people also report some comfort issues with the headphones. I find that after some use, the padding loosens up a bit to make it a bit more bearable. I can now wear it for about 3 hours non-stop before I take it off from some discomfort and sweaty ears. (Sweaty ears are pretty common for closed headphones.) If you're looking for headphones to wear for hours without end, look elsewhere because these are probably not the best choice. (Again, I'm not sure if people with smaller heads have a better time with comfort but these reviews are all based on personal experience.)

Value: All in all, this is a great bang for your buck. The price apparently fluctuates (It was priced at 125 at the time of my purchase, and it is currently around 150 USD. If you can get a good deal on these headphones, it is definitely worth your time.

Great Sound Quality... At A Price 16 Jan 2012
By BawksyBrown - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Ultrasone DJ1 is a great entry-level audiophile's headphone. Musical reproduction is accurate enough, although the phone sides on the warmer side compared to my cold, analytical Etymotics. This leads music to feel more fun (especially electronic/hip-hop), which is a tradeoff I felt worth taking over 100% clean reproduction. The real problem is the comfort, which I'll address below.

Breaking it down:

-Fun, high quality headphones at a good price.
-S-Logic isn't groundbreaking, but listeners will notice a difference. It's a nice change to in-ear buds, or smaller soundscapes like the Audio Technia MTH-50s. For me, the most noticeable aspect of S-Logic is the bass, which seems to play on the "floor" of the soundscape. It packs a great thump without becoming overpowering.
-Acceptable in all genres, and actually seems to modify the bass level depending on genre played.
-Sturdy build quality.

-They are pretty bulky, and don't look as sleek as some of the more "designer" headphones.
-The top band is initially uncomfortable and must be stretched with textbooks for at least a week. Also the headband padding is too hard, it needs to be replaced with a softer foam. PLEASE take note of this, because it is a very divisive issue on buying these cans. If you can't stand the comfort, its really not worth it.

HFI-580s but in black n white 30 July 2011
By Dsnuts - Published on Amazon.com

These have been confirmed from Ultrasone that they are the exact same phones as the HFI-580s.
Made for DJ use they have the screw on adapter and a coiled line. Good fit and become more comfy as you use em.

For the asking price these sound awesome for Bass heavy music. Bass is actually great on the cans.. I also own the HFI-780s and compared to them... The highs and the mids are a bit more in your face on the DJ1s while also adding a tad more Bass. This makes em an easy recommendation for hip hop and electronica/ Trance..I find the Bass on the DJ1s to have an authoritative punch and detail with extension even in the sub bass that does Bass heavy music justice..It is a fun can to listen to hip hop. As nothing pisses me off more than Bass that is muddy or congested. These have the right amount of big punch and definition in the over all sound signature that makes you bob your head to the tunes..I find the sound staging ample but a bit smaller than the HFi-780s and the clarity and highs are a tad better on the HFI-780s as well so therefor the price difference reflects the sound qualities accordingly.

However..Given the big bass sounds on the DJ1s the smaller sound staging actually helps balance out the cans.. So far I am very impressed with Both and will whole heartedly recommend both cans from Ultrasone.... Both are fantastic!! Trance is better on the HFI780s but the DJ1s are better for Hip hop. But that is just nit picking really as both do justice for both genres. If you listen to more than just Bass heavy music I would recommend the HFI-780 over the HFI-580/DJ1s..

Very well made and the sounds they produce are very kick ass..No need to spend hundreds on big quality sound.. Try these cans.. You will get your monies worth.. Djing or not.
