Pioneer HDJ-1500 DJ Headphones Announced

Pioneer Electronics introduced the HDJ-1500 professional DJ headphones, which are constructed with high-quality components, large drivers and a new sound isolation technology to achieve exceptional performance in demanding environments.

Pioneer claims these DJ headphones deliver perfectly balanced sound across the entire frequency spectrum. The combination of large 50mm drivers, copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coils, rare-earth magnets and 38µm-thick diaphragms, significantly improve control of the drivers and produce better bass response. Users will hear pronounced vocals, hard hitting kick drums and snappy snare drums that make matching tempos between tracks effortless.

The newly developed design also greatly reduces background noise. Pioneer has created an innovative sound-isolation chamber as part of its bass reflex port that isolates low and mid frequencies in the 300 Hz to 1,300 Hz by as much as 4 decibels from the previous Pioneer headphone, resulting in cleaner, better defined mid bass/mid range sounds.

The HDJ-1500 exemplifies the look and feel of pro-style headphones designed with large over-the-ears cups that not only look sleek but also contribute to their excellent performance. The model incorporates ultra-comfortable narrow low-resilience urethane memory foam ear pads to create a tight seal around the ears and significantly reduce external sounds. The urethane memory pads are also finished in durable leather for great feel and extended comfort. For additional convenience and DJ preference, the included ear pads can also be replaced with Pioneer's optional HDJ-EP01 open-cup protein leather ear pads which sit around the ears.

The HDJ-1500 features a moving headband and hinges composed of rugged yet lightweight magnesium alloy to withstand the rigors of extended professional use. Each earpiece swivels up to 45 degrees and can be flipped around 180 degrees for one ear listening. Furthermore, the included single-sided cable is detachable and can easily be replaced if damaged.

The headphones also include a compact carrying pouch for protection and convenience. For DJs who want extra headphone protection, Pioneer offers the optional HDJ-HC01 lightweight carrying case.
