The Beats by Dr. Dre headphone range includes all sorts of models ranging from over-the-ear active noise cancelling, to inner ear-buds that were created in conjunction with B-ball star Lebron James. The Beats headphone range as a whole has been given a bad rap amongst many DJ inner-circles, but here at DJbooth.net, we like to give all DJ gear a fair shake, no matter what name brand they come from. We’ve never reviewed any Beats headphones before, so we thought that the new DJ-inspired Mixr headphones would be the perfect place to start.
The new Urbanears headphone colors for the Fall and Winter 2013 season are now available for purchase everywhere Urbanears headphones are sold. The Urbanears line of headphones includes the Plattan (lightweight on the ear headphones), the Medis, and the recently reviewed Zinken (Professional DJ Grade headphones). Each of these headphones come in more than ten different colors, and now we can add the new three fall colors to the list; Cobalt, Clover, and Lilac.
Vestax has just announced the arrival of their new high-quality replaceable headphone cables that work well with their HMX-05 headphones or any other compatible DJ headphones called the HFC-1 cable. These cables are available in white, purple, green, or red and feature a matching flat cable that will never tangle. The HFC-1 will be available in October 2013 for only $10.
We reviewed the Vestax HMX-01 headphones in black and red a few months ago, and now Vestax has released the white and red edition to compliment the White and Red mixers and controllers in their lineup. The Vestax VCI-400DJ Serato DJ edition also dawns the white paint-job while the new Vestax VCI-380 is also available in white. Now these vestax controllers have a nice set of HMX-01 white headphones to match.

The Phiaton Bridge MS 500 headphones have an over-the-ear design and premium construction materials throughout including a solid aluminum body and genuine leather earcups and headband for added comfort and durability. Review is on the way.
The new Beats By Dr. Dre Mixr headphones are created in conjunction with superstar DJ David Guetta and as such these headphones are made for DJ use; both in and out of the DJ booth. The Mixr headphones have an "on-the-ear" design with a solid and swivel/fold construction, two non-tangle cables, and washable synthetic leather earcups all in a lightweight package. Review is on the way.
The new top-of-the-line Reloop RHP-30 Professional DJ headphones are now released to the public and available for purchase. The new RHP-30 headphones have full metal reinforcements, big oversized leather earpads/headband for comfort, and three different detachable cables to suit all DJ listening needs.
The Gibson Pro Audio group (Stanton, Cerwin Vega, and KRK) are also in the house at the Atlantic City DJ Expo and we are there to show you what they've got for us. First off, they had the Stanton CMP.800, the SCS.4DJ, the DJC.4, and so much more. Everything was on display ready to use for any who wish to do so. Also in the booth were the entire line of KRK Studio Monitors and the Cerwin Vega speaker and subwoofer line. DJ Premier rocked the house on Tuesday, and Biz Markie is stopping by later today!
