Especially when it comes to Pioneer DJ, we are the most preferred brand in the world of DJ’s, studios & clubs. Today sound quality and style are no longer reserved solely to the professional level DJs, but are now available to anyone who is passionate about music. Through the launch of Pioneer HDJ-500 , we are trying to encourage a new kind of audio connoisseurs, amateur DJ’s as we would like to call them, who like to listen and experiment with music. We have taken inputs from professional DJ’s who are associated with us in developing an affordable yet powerful solution for this new league of consumers.”
The HDJ-500 comes with a single sided replaceable cord that plugs into the left side of the headphone. There are two kinds of cord, a 1.2 meter coiled cord which can be extended up to 3 meter for DJ’ing and a 1 meter straight cord for personal listening. Pioneer HDJ-500 is sound engineered to strongly reproduce a rich low-range. There is an effective sound pressure increase by utilizing Pioneer’s newly developed 40 mm (diameter) driver unit and by narrowing the ear pad opening, reproducing a crystal clear sound.
