Hey I want to invest in a pair of new headphones. I just bought my first tables and I want to buy either the Technics RPDH 1200 or the Stanton Pro DJ 2000 or the new denons ( I dont have the model # right now)...

Which ones should I buy? I do care about weight and comfort besides sound ( from what i have read both of them are awesome) so which are more comfortable?

Also I believe the Technics are louder, but do the Stanton's do the job??

The 1000's of reviews online have confused me too much!! Help!!

I'd pick the technics any day. Though there's nothing useful to say other than opinion...all do the job just fine. Go to a store, try em on and see which feels best/most comfortable on your head.

It is hard to say on how comfortable a headphone is, because a lot of people have different shaped/size ears and heads. Your best bet is to go to a store, like what dustwave stated, and try them on.

Sound quality wise, the Technics and Stanton headphones are ok. They are both flat, but the technics has more bass. I can not say much about the denon's, because I never tried them. Denon's do make awesome audiophile headphones, such as the AH-D7000, but I hear their DJ line is not that great in sound.

If you plan to use your headphones for other things, besides djing, try checking out these headphones:
- Ultrasone DJ1 Pro
- Sennheiser HD25-1 II
- AKG K181DJ

Other than EDM, I listen to classical/jazz/acoustic and the technics (I use them for djing) do not cut it for me for those genres. haha.

Good luck on your headphone search.
