Monster Beats Pro Headphones are a must for DJs

Monster Cable Beats Pro By Dr. Dre Headphones

Having the right tools for the job is always one of the most important aspects of any job. If you have ever tried to install some new car speakers without the appropriate tools, the job seems almost impossible to complete. On the reverse end of that, when the installer has the appropriate tools the job becomes quick and easy. The correct tools will always make the task at hand easier and get done faster. Just like tools, the correct equipment can ensure that the work gets done properly and to the expectations. For DJs, this equipment comes in the form of mixers, turntables, loudspeakers, and headphones.

Headphones are one of the most over looked (and underestimated) pieces of equipment for a DJ. The headphones are the first stop as the music leaves the turntable. Before the crowd hears it, the DJ listens closely to the music to ensure it is exactly what he wants. That’s were the Monster Beats Pro by Dr. Dre headphones come into play. These headphones quickly become the DJs best friend. They have large oversized ear cushions that are not only comfortable, but also washable. That means that after several shows and getting sweaty behind the turntable you can still keep the headphones clean, sanitary, and looking new. The swivel ear cup serves a few different purposes. The swivel allows for the DJ to keep a secure headphone fit, while being able to hear what is going on around him. However, the swivel also has a secondary function. When one cup is removed from the ear, the other ear cup that remains on the ear switches to a mono speaker. That means that both the right and left channels of audio are going to one ear cup. Since the DJ only has the one ear listening to the music, this means that they will not miss any part of the music and can continue to mix accurately.

Overall the construction of the Monster Cable Beats Pro is very solid and durable. They will easily be able to take anything that the professional DJ has in store for it. While the standard headphone is black, Monster is offering two colors: Black and White Monster Beat Pro. Don’t miss out any longer. If you are a professional and headphones are important to you, these are not a pair you want to pass up.
