    If you follow the link to the hifibitz.co.uk site, then it describes the phones as...

    "The HD 25 SP-1 is a pair of closed dynamic headphones for persons with severe hearing impairment."

    I think that encompasses most "DJ's" that I have come across! But I think these are definitely for more sensible listening as well!

    Hi

    Thay are intended for DJ/Studio work - But being closed back they are great for cutting out external noises (just what you need if you are a DJ or a home Cinema nut)

    I'm not sure about Hi-Fi Bitz marketing strategy of "The HD 25 SP-1 is a pair of closed dynamic headphones for persons with severe hearing impairment" - This statement could be a bit off-putting

    Look on the Sennheiser website for a bit more info

    Many thanks

    Hi

    As another option (i realise my last post was just more a dig at dj's than a sensible post), I would suggest the Beyer dt231's which I myself own. They are a closed back headphone, ideal for watching films without waking up the missus.

    I have had these for a couple of years now, and they sound cracking with whatever I listen to, and are comfy enough, with their soft foam pads, that you can wear them all day.

    For less that £40, a very reasonable alternative.

    Stew (being helpful for a change... ish)
