5 Things About the Technics EAH-DJ1200 That Make It Suitable for Beginner and Professional DJs Alike

Updated: Dec 19, 2023

Whether you’re an established DJ or someone looking to start, there’s one thing (aside from your controllers and mixers, of course) that everybody needs: A pair of good headphones. And not just any headphones too, since you’ll most likely want some features that aren’t present on regular headphones.


Here are five features the Technics EAH-DJ1200 headphones have that make it a good option for DJing or general audiophile usage.

Detailed, Balanced Sound Even in High Volume Surroundings

Thanks to the newly developed 40mm driver inside and a maximum input level of 2,500mW, the headphones can handle loud music without distortion while still achieving a balanced sound. This is definitely important for DJs who need to monitor the mix while working in loud, noisy environments.


We had the opportunity to try out the headphones and we were suitably impressed by the balanced sound that struck the right balance between deep, impactful bass, clear mids and energetic, bright treble. With the on-ear design and a good amount of clamping force, the headphones do help block out background noise relatively well. The soundstage and left/right directionality are decent, and the headphones have a more neutral timbre with a slight touch of warmth and smoothness in the mids.


Overall, the EAH-DJ1200 is a fantastic pair of headphones for both DJing and audiophiles alike, hitting all the criteria for mixing music and analytical listening.


Lockable 270° Swing Arm Mechanism

Ever seen a DJ holding just one earcup of their headphones to their ears while mixing? That’s because they need to check the house levels and overall mix that the guests are listening to through the actual speaker systems. While it’s fine if you’re just doing it for a few moments, having to hold the headphones to your ear for long periods of time does get a bit tiring. The EAH-DJ1200 has a lockable swivel mechanism for the earcups to allow for different styles of monitoring, whether you prefer keeping your left or right ear free, or whether you want to keep both earcups on.


High Durability

Modelled after the RP-DJ1200, these headphones come in a black colour scheme that’s resistant to knocks and scratches thanks to the durable materials. With an operating temperature range of zero to 40 degrees celsius, the EAH-DJ1200 will be able to hold up to even the warmest underground venues.


Lockable Detachable Cord Mechanism

DJing is a pretty high-energy activity, and there have certainly been times when cables have detached from headphones from jumping about, or if the cable accidentally gets caught on something and is yanked out. The EAH-DJ1200 comes with lockable cables to prevent this from happening, and you get both a 1.2m straight cable as well as a 1.5m coiled cable in the box for extra range if needed.

Earpads and Headband Designed for Maximum Comfort

The faux leather earpads and headband are not only sweat-repellent, which is incredibly important for DJs, but they’re extremely comfortable as well. For DJs working on end for a few hours, having comfortable headphones that fit well is important. With the sweat-repellent material, the earpads and headband will last longer without that dreaded flaking and peeling of the faux leather.
