Pioneer’s new HDJ-500 Headphones add Sexy to the DJ
Audio equipment giant, Pioneer, introduced the sleek and sexy HDJ-500 headphones in India. The headphones look attractive and are targeted towards professionals such as DJs and folks who just want great headphones for their tunes.
The right ear housing of the HDJ-500 can swivel by 60 degrees. This, along with the flexible headbands, will make it easy for the DJs to check on the monitors with ease. The company claims that even for an everyday user, the headphones can recreate the club experience, minus the unwanted second-hand smoke of course.
For the sound aspect of the headphones, the cans increase the effective sound pressure by utilising Pioneer’s newly developed 40 mm (diameter) driver unit. The HDJ-500 are sound engineered to reproduce a rich low-range. Pioneer has also narrowed the ear pad opening, to reproduce clear sound.
The headphones come with a single-sided replaceable cord that plugs into the left side. The cans are available with two types of cords, a 1.2 meter coiled cord which can be extended up to 3 metres for DJ’ing and a 1 metre straight cord for personal listening.
The Pioneer HDJ-500 are available at a price tag of Rs. 8,590. They look like a good option for people who want a professional pair of headphones or someone who just wants the best out of their music.
