Pioneer HDJ-500 headphones entry with substance

Pioneer today revealed its new HDJ-500 entry-level DJ headphones. Designed with comfort and longevity in mind, it uses leather-wrapped urethane pads to provide a more comfortable user experience that is also hard-wearing. The main structure of the headphones is made of magnesium alloy, which is both strong and lightweight. As with with many DJ-style headphones, the HDJ-500 includes a rotating arm structure that allows the user to twist the right earpiece forwards or backwards by as much as 60 degrees to keep one ear open for a crowd.

To assist new DJs in learning the art form, the headphones are tuned for the mixing process by boosting the low- and mid-range frequencies. Sound is delivered by 40mm diameter drivers, a thick 19 μm (micrometers) diaphragm and a copper-clad aluminum wire voice coil. The frequency range is 5Hz-28KHz with a maximum output sound level of 105dB.

The red HDJ-500-R and the black HDJ-500-K will be available in November 2010 for $125. A white model will become available in early January 2011.
