The Denon Dn-HP500 are a very low priced pair of DJ headphones. The design of them is very clean and modern. They have a nice weight to them that you can tell they are well made, but they are not too big and bulky that they would be uncomfortable. You can rotate them up to 90 degrees for one ear action. The special thing about the Denon DN-HP500 are that you can really turn them up to the max (not that I recommend doing that for your ears sake) and still get a clean sound. These are a very good pair of headphones for a newer DJ or a first time DJ that needs an affordable pair of headphones for the first set up they purchase or first show they do.
After you can afford to get a different pair or an upgrade from the HP500 I really suggest going to the HP1000, they have a better sound. They cost more yes, but the sound is worth it once you hear them. I was using the HP 500’s for a good while before I moved on from them. I used them for months back in 2010 and they worked great. The Denon DN-HP500’s are a great value for the price they cost which is less than 100 dollars. I have used the HP 700 and HP 1000. The HP 700’s sound doesn’t different much from the HP 500. But there is a big difference in sound from the HP500 to the HP 1000. So if you start to get more serious about being a DJ then the 1000 is what you will probably end up going to after the HP 500.
I am happy to say that I used the HP 500, they are affordable and work well. You can fold them up and take them with you where every you go and not have to worry about them getting damaged because they are pretty durable.
* For how long have you been using it?
Since only a few days after blowing up my headphone numark PHX, which was hanging by a piece of tape over the past few months.
* What thing do you like most/least about it?
Its size, it is quite small, changing from the old, but the sound is very good after a few hours of mix, my ears do not whistle, whereas before it was a habit, the bass is very present and very good, I find the sound very good in general (to mix course for mastering or dial, it is not neutral, it will get used to it), another big avantange: it does not serve the head! when it is removed, it did not completely flattened ears and that's great! Last thing, the cable, there's only one that came with the headphone, but it is enough, "corkscrew" on half of its length, it does not interfere at all.
* Did you try many other models before getting this one?
The Numark PHX, Stanton headphones and a ...
* What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Bought from sonovente to 59euro (musikia alignment with the site), I hesitated a pioneer, but wanting to watch my budget, I chose the denon, and I'm happy (of course, I think the Pioneer was above the level of quality ... but why spend more if you're happy with what we have)
* Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
For the same budget so, in this price range, it is THE headset to have, others do not hold for long, however, other transportation, I do not torture, the denon sound in air I hope he proves me
