Let’s be honest here. If you are serious about your DJ career, you are not settling for mediocre headphones. You want top-notch headphones that offer performance and will not break the bank.
This is where the OneOdio Pro-10 Studio headphones come into play. These closed-back over-ear beauties may be ludicrously cheap, but where these are concerned, you don’t get what you pay for – you get far, far more than that.
Let’s take a closer look at why the OneOdio Pro-10s stand out a mile in the crowded field of budget studio headphones.
You can’t help but be impressed by the thought that’s gone into the design.
The first thing I noticed was the smart red stitching on either side of the headband, giving them a small but crucial bit of individuality over so many other headphones in a similar price range. They also feature cool glossy finish trims and black matte plastic, adding to a feeling of quality.
However, it’s in their functionality where the design really comes into its own.
Firstly, they’re foldable, so they won’t take up much room if you’re traveling with them or putting them in storage. Just pop them flat in their pouch and off you go.
Meanwhile, the round ear cups rotate 180 degrees left and right, so they’re less likely to slip when you swivel them for single-ear monitoring.
The ear cushions have plenty of soft leatherette and memory foam padding, too, so irritation should be at a minimum while keeping comfort levels satisfyingly luxurious.
The headphones also come with an adjustable band so you can get just the right level of snugness across your head.
The OneOdio Pro-10 has a 50mm neodymium driver, which is at the high-end of the 30-53mm diameter standard studio headphone range.
Meanwhile, the frequency response covers 20Hz-20KHz, which is ample for anyone.
The two detachable spring cables that come with the headphones offer a generous 10 feet of cable, too, so when you involuntarily (and inevitably) begin hurling yourself around when you spin the latest banger, you’ll at least have plenty of leeways before there’s any danger of either the 3.5mm or 6.5mm gold-plated plug popping out.
Last, SharePort tech means you can connect headphones without a splitter switch – and therefore, without losing crucial volume.
OK, so the OneOdio Pro-10 looks great, is versatile, comfortable to wear, and has excellent specs. But does the sound cut it? The answer is a resounding, “yes.”
To be honest, unless you’ve got a keen sense of hearing, you’re not likely to notice much difference between the OneOdio Pro-10 and almost any high-end set of studio cans you care to mention.
These headphones boast loads of deep bass, but it strikes a nice balance to allow the mids and trebles to come through beautifully. The only thing they might struggle slightly with is in the definition of very high notes, but this is a minor quibble.
Another advantage is that if you’re using them around others in quieter environments, you’ll avoid the tuts and disapproving glances as the closed-back design means the noise won’t travel far externally.
