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