Long Beach, Calif. - Pioneer
Electronics took the wraps off a pair of DJ headphones intended for the pro
market.

The HDJ-1500 will be available in May.The over-ear HDJ-1500,
which will be available in May for $209, feature 50mm drivers and copper-clad
aluminum wire voice coils, a frequency range of 5Hz to 30kHz, impedance of 32
ohms, and a maximum input of 3,500mW.

The leather-covered ear
pads are made of urethane memory-foam, and they can swapped with Pioneer's
HDJ-EP01 open-cup protein leather ear pads that sit around the ears. Both the
left and the right cups can swivel 45 degrees or flipped around 180 degrees for
one-ear listening.

The headband and hinges
are made of magnesium-alloy, and the coil cord can be removed and replaced if
necessary.

Two color options are
offered: Deep Silver and Black Chrome. A carrying pouch is included.
