These headphoens are large and offer impressive sound quality for the price


I would like to tell you the specifics of the Subjekt X! DJ Headphones at this point, but Subjekt's website has nothing about the headphones. All I can tell you is that they have a 3.5mm headphone jack, sell for $39.99, and are tuned for bass. Three colors are available.

In Use

When I received the big box of stuff from the people peddling the Subjekt X! DJ Headphones I noticed right away that a couple of the large sets of headphones were not in a box. Such is the case with the Subjekt X! DJ Headphones I am looking at today. Typically, I can get some info about the performance of the headphones off the box in the form of specifications. I'm not sure if my samples are early production, or if these things normally come in a plastic bag.

The headphones I am reviewing are the multi color version that is mostly blue. They are wild looking with light blue, red, and yellow colors on them and large black ear pads. The cables the headphones use are flat like a phone cord rather than being rounded like most headphones. The cable running from the left ear cup is blue, the right ear cup has a red cable, and when the cables meet, it is yellow.

I had no problems with using the Subjekt X! DJ Headphones on my iPhone 3GS for listening to digital music. The 3.5mm headphone jack fit snugly and worked fine. The headphone lacks a mic or any controls in line for tracks. The ear pads are very large in an effort to resemble the big headphones DJs wear when they perform. Despite all the padding, the openings for your ears are rather small and put pressure on the tops of my ears.

My ears aren't Ross Perot big; I would say medium size, so if you have big ears comfort for extended periods could be an issue. The padding does a good job of keeping the sounds from your tunes in and blocks some of the outside sounds. I would not call these noise blocking earphones, the simply aren’t tight enough for that.

The sound quality of the Subjekt X! DJ Headphones is very good. The things are tuned for bass and have impressive bass on tracks like my test tune How Low from Ludacris. I also found that on tracks where there is no heavy bass the overall sound quality is actually very good. The mids and highs are crisp and sharp making guitars sound good and vocals are clear and easy to hear.

The sound quality is really what most of us are looking for and while the Subjekt X! DJ Headphones aren’t the bet for sound I have heard but the cheap price will make these very appealing for many users. The normal MSRP according to the Subjekt website is $79.99 and they are 50% off right now making them $39.99. I saw them online at Amazon and other etailers for $39.99 as well. If I were buying I would stay away from the multi colored sets, they are far too wild looking for my tastes. The black and white version is much better looking to my eyes.



  • Good bass
  • Good overall sound


  • Specs are a mystery
  • Multi colored sets are a throwback to the 80's


The Subjekt X! DJ Headphones may lack packaging and information, but they sound very good and the price is right making these worth consideration.
