Dubai DJ launches luxury headphone range

DJ Habibi 2000 unveils the DJH2Ks, which come with embedded with 1kg of Swarovski crystals

DUBAI: One of the most renowned DJs and musicians in Dubai has joined the ranks of Dr Dre, 50 Cent and Bob Marley, having put his name to a pair of designer headphones.

The DJH2Ks, which were unveiled last night by DJ Habibi 2000, are – according to the man himself – headphones like no others.

Critics have suggested the DJH2Ks are "too heavy" for practical use

“The DJH2Ks basically represent exactly what Habibi 2000 is about,” said the Beirut-born DJ at the launch party in Dubai’s exclusive Club Smug. “They’re luxury, they’re 5-star, and their the only headphones to come with an official ‘VVVIP’ rating.”

The headphones, which will land on shelves next week, come in two ‘flavas’; Designer Luxury in gold, and Exclusive Smooth in platinum. Each come with a recommended retail price of AED10,000, which includes a free bottle of ‘imported’ water at Club Smug. Both varieties are encrusted with over 1kg of Swarovski crystals.

“I basically tried to establish exactly what it was that my old headphones weren’t giving me,” said the DJ. “And then one night, while spinning a selection of urban grooves to a packed room of beautiful people, it struck me – I needed precious metals and crystals. Having spoken to a lot of my DJ friends across Dubai, it’s something they urgently needed too.”

Early reviews, however, have not been favourable, with several critics suggesting the DJH2Ks were too heavy for practical use and struggled with musical varieties beyond chart house.

But this hasn’t stopped cheap fake already flooding the market in Dubai’s busy neighbourhood of Karama. This morning, a pair of DJH3Ks could be bought for around $20.

    this is the most retarded thing I’ve ever seen, read or heard of. 1st off a dj or producer only has headphones when there is something unique about them, to be specific its the sound quality. This doesn’t look anything new looks like the American Audio Dj Headphones with Swarovski and for 10k, id take my chances buying real headphones like Audio Technica, Areal7, Reloop, Denon, Berodynamic, Alien&Health, Pioneer, Shure, Ultrasone, KRK, Monster, Samson and this list can keep going… and putting the crystals on myself. but then again its the dj that has to impress people with his skills on the decks not Swarovski headphones. and plus Habibi 2000 really thts the best u could come up with I’ve been in dubai for 17yrs and doin events for 7yrs in most clubs and until few days ago i read bout this habibi 2000 in an infusion magazine where he was caught talking bullshit about wining (INFUSION one to watch out for) i think this guys a joke urban groove music lol
