This rare picture shows Tom Jenkinson actually DJing. His headphones appear to be the Beyerdynamic DT-100, especially when compared to [this picture](http://europe.beyerdynamic.com/fileadmin/_migrated/pics/DT100_09_web.jpg), which shows the item with a cable connection pretty similar to the one seen in the source picture.more
Many controversial things has been said about 'em, this white ubiquity of old professional recording studios, this little brother-in-law of Yamaha NT-10, etc. Found them large and heavy at first, but unexpectedly light and comfortable later, brutally honest, excellent sound isolation, somewhat masochistic for music listening, but nearly perfect for mastering needs, maybe with a little old-fashioned absence of extra presence and bass, but that is matter of taste really. And after endless hours of raw oscillator noise my ears and head are fine with them. Danke schön!
I use this set of headphones mainly for recording vocals and for practice with my keyboard, as they are closed back its harder for people to distract me while doing my thing!
