Of the many DJ companies who are trying their hardest to earn your attention, there are few that have done it as fast as Reloop. Most of these companies will start out by making just one line of products. It might be mixers, controllers, or even headphones. By the time they have a little bit of a grab on one part of the market – they now have room to start expanding into other areas. They have some space to take a risk. This is not what Reloop has done. They literally expanded as soon as they could, making everything from mixers to headphones – and they have done it with style.
Their use of product placement and celebrity ads has actually helped them build their brand and their image. Now for the part that most people don’t want to hear. When you build your company this fast, it makes …

Vestax is not a company that iterates a specific style of headphones over and over again – that kind of job is left to Reloop or perhaps Pioneer. However, when Vestax does produce an item that is out of their comfort zone it leads many intrigued as to what went in to making it. What were the reasons they decided to make such a product. Vestax has a new pair of headphones, the HMX-05’s and the design seems similar to the famous Beats By Dre. Design which has been copied by many with a similar degree of success. On looks alone, they share the modern one piece design, which actually hides the fact that they are foldable for easy transportation.
The cups themselves don’t appear to be molded into the headbands and they look as if they are just floating there – a real nice touch if you ask me. …

I already understand that vinyl turntables and vinyl produced music isn’t as popular these days as it once was, but I don’t think that it will disappear altogether. In fact, if you look at this year’s Coachella festival, you’ll notice that this type of music is coming back around; as it always does. DJing went from mixing music, to creating music, to creating music as part of a band with other musicians. For the turntablist who has held on to his medium for all this time – it brings me joy to see it being used in music creation once again. Manufacturers aren’t giving up on the turntable either; in fact, they’ve made attempts to modernize it.
Reloop has been making their rounds creating everything from DVS to mixers, and now they’ve even pulled out all the stops on branding a new turntable. Their RP-6000 shares the design of the …

Headphone designers are getting closer and closer to creating the perfect set of head cans – but they are not there quite yet. First, there is the issue of trying to please everyone who puts them on. It isn’t going to happen. If only we are all born with the same size ears and the same shape head, but we aren’t. So there is no one-size fits all solution – but we are getting pretty close. The other end of the deal is the price, and this is the real deal breaker. We know that we can find the perfect set of headphones that has everything we would possibly need, as long as we pay top dollar for it. This is the platform that Pioneer has setup for themselves – but there are other avenues to explore.
Reloop has made a name for itself by expanding horizontally within the industry. …
