New Colors for the Pioneer HDJ-1000
Pioneer introduced an updated version of the HDJ-1000 DJ headphones in two new colours.
The HDJ-1000 Limited offer "lightweight design and futuristic look" of the HDJ-1000.
- Designed for low-range listening and responsiveness
The new headphones feature a thicker diaphragm (38 micrometers) and longer voice coil (1.5mm), to enable playback of low and heavy sounds. Plus, the protection resistance value in the MONO/STEREO switch has been halved, making beats and other sounds in the mid-range even easier to hear, according to Pioneer.
- Fit and sound insulation
Low-rebound urethane on the ear pads makes for a better fit. As with its predecessor, the 50mm dome driver is designed to "reproduce the best possible sound clarity."
- New colour variations
The black earphones and grip band of the original model remain but now in black and gold versions on the arms and hinges.
Other features include the swivel mechanism with 90-degree housing rotation to support various monitoring styles, a MONO/STEREO switch for single ear use and exchangeable cables and ear pads.
Price is set at Euro 159.
