(Monitor Headphones Review) Behringer HPX2000: Practical monitors optimized for use in the DJ field. Texture expression in the mid-range is very impressive. However, for normal music appreciation, range feel is poor and they sound cheap

Sound quality

The Behringer HPX2000 has a flat sound, leaning toward the midrange, which sounds midrange-centric. The midrange is very neutral, so vocals sound clean, but the soundstage is narrow. The sound is not very open, even though it is open.


The following review was tested with a FiiO M15.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: B+
  • Personal preference: B+


The Behringer HPX2000 is an excellent headphones for DJ performers to use on site. They are practical headphones that faithfully transmit the atmosphere of a hot venue while accurately emphasizing and transmitting the central midrange so that the music is not buried in it.

In everyday music listening situations, they may be suitable for those who want to focus especially on the vocal area, or for those who want to enjoy chamber music or small JAZZ in a compact space, but in general, they are hard to recommend.

General comment

The Behringer HPX2000 is a highly practical DJ monitor headphones optimized for DJ performers to hear what they need to hear while becoming one with the frenzy around them in the field. They are not really suited for music appreciation, but their very good midrange texture expression is surprisingly good for their low price.
