We recently reviewed the new Beats By Dr. Dre Mixr Professional DJ headphones and we were impressed with the build quality, the sound signature, and all the other features that worked well inside the DJ booth. The Beats Pro headphones have a completely solid steel/aluminum construction, an over-the-ear design for good isolation, and a folding-swivel construction for one-ear monitoring and storage. Watch the complete review video to see how they hold up through the tests.
Akai, the legendary studio production station company, has announced the release of two new Studio reference monitors called the RPM500 (with a 5-inch woofer) and the RPM800 (with an 8-inch woofer). These new powered monitors boast great balance, sound, and build quality at a competitive price point. Each of these RPM monitors also have High Frequency Trim, Mid-Range Boost, and Low Frequency cutoff controls along with XLR, TRS, and RCA inputs on the back. Check out the full press release and pricing in the announcement.
My favorite headphones in the whole wide world are also the favorites of the many DJ's who were polled for the DJ Magazine's Tech Award for Headphone Of The Year. The 2013 DJ Magazine HOTY is none other than the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Professional DJ Headphones. These headphones have phenomenal build quality, a folding hinge design, great sound quality, and customizable/removable shields for the earcups.
The new Pioneer DJM-750 Four-channel Professional DJ Mixer is finally in the DJbooth.net Lab for a full out video and written review.

The review of the DJM-750 should be completed shortly, but check out the unboxing and first impressions video in the meantime to see what comes in the box.
A couple of months ago, we reviewed the new Beats By Dr. Dre Mixr Professional DJ headphones and we were impressed with the build quality, the sound signature, and all the other features that worked well for DJ use inside the DJ booth. Our good friend ProfessorBX over at the Beats office felt it was only right that we also take a look at the top-of-the-line Beats Pro headphones to put them through the same tests. The Beats Pro headphones have a completely solid steel/aluminum construction, an over-the-ear design for good isolation, and a folding-swivel construction for one-ear monitoring and storage. The full review will be completed within two weeks, but check out our unboxing & first impressions video to see what comes in the box.
Last month at the 2013 Atlantic City DJ Expo at the Trump Taj Mahal we were treated to DJ royalty at the Stanton, KRK, and Cerwin Vega booth (AKA Gibson Pro Audio) with both DJ Premier and Biz Markie showing everyone some turntable and mixing skills we won't soon forget. Premier and Biz appeared at the DJ Expo on separate days, but they both performed at the Gibson Pro Audio booth and we all had a blast. Check out the video performances if you weren't able to make it out in person.
Phiaton is a relatively new audio company that produces some good quality headphones for all types of users. 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. We've completed this review to see just how they hold up in the DJ booth.
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.
