The latest product to be added to the Pioneer DJ line is aimed at DJs, but can be used by anyone and is a special edition of the HDJ-1000 DJ headphones. The headphones have previously been spied in a chrome finish, the new gold version is metallic looking, and a new black version is available as well and shares the same specifications. The headphones are designed to fold away for portability and storage and have a mono or stereo selector switch.
The headphones are designed to be comfortable during long performances with low rebound urethane ear pads for a better fit and increased comfort. The ear pads also provide sound isolation. The headphones ship with a carry pouch and the black or gold versions will ship in December for $209. Specifications include 50mm dome type drivers, a frequency range of 5Hz to 30kHz, 36 ohms impedance, and a 3.5mm plug with a 3P gold plated adapter. The headphones weigh 9.52 ounces without the cord.
