World famous DJ Armin van Buuren has teamed up with top electronics manufacturer Philips to create some new professional DJ headphones. The new A5-PRO DJ headphones have large 50mm drivers, genuine leather headband/cushions, detachable cables, and a closed-back folding and swivel design for easy storage and transport. The A5-PRO also comes with two different sized ear cushions for either an over-the-ear or on-the-ear style fit. These new headphones look like they will be great for professional DJ's, but without actually feeling the materials and the construction qualities, it may be a bit difficult to judge. We'll try to get a set in the lab for a full out video and written review... Until then, check out the official Armin van Buuren video on the new A5-PRO headphones.
[Video] Beats By Dr. Dre Beats Pro Headphones Unboxing & First Impressions
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.
