Press Release October 18, 2012
Pioneer will launch new matte white color “HDJ-2000-W” and “HDJ-1500-W” models of its professional DJ headphones “[easyazon-link asin=”B007KTQU26″ locale=”us”]HDJ-2000[/easyazon-link]” and “[easyazon-link asin=”B007TCFJD0″ locale=”us”]HDJ-1500[/easyazon-link]”.
The “HDJ-2000” is highly popular for being a flagship DJ headphone model that delivers the high quality audio, excellent comfort and durability demanded by top DJs, while the “HDJ-1500” is likewise highly popular as having rich bass sound and clear beat definition together with a high level of sound insulation and durability.
By adding matte white models that look great in various scenes, such as inside DJ booths, to both of these lineups alongside the existing silver and black chrome models, users will be able to choose colors that match their own sense of style and fashion.
Main specifications of HDJ-2000-W
1) Excellent sound quality
Exceptional sound quality has been achieved by featuring a 38ìm (micrometer) diaphragm to deliver more bass, a large 50mm driver, and a rolled voice coil for a linear output from bass to treble. The headphones also use an airtight sewing and damper for the ear pads that helps to improve sound quality, especially in the mid-to-high frequency ranges.
2) Snug fit for comfortable wear
The main structure of the headphones is made with lightweight magnesium alloy, and the ear pads and head pad utilize synthetic protein leather and low-reaction urethane foam for a snug and comfortable fit.
3) Built for durability
Key parts, such as the headphone plug and connecting cable to the main unit have been designed to withstand continual use. The headphones also employ a removable Mini XLR connector for compatibility with professional audio equipment.
Main specifications of HDJ-1500-W
1) Superb sound quality
With high-quality components, the HDJ-1500s deliver perfectly balanced sound across all frequencies. The headphones feature copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, large 50 mm driver units, rare earth magnets and 38μm-thick diaphragms, guaranteeing accurate reproduction of deep base notes and clear delivery of other low to medium frequencies, such as kicks and snares.
2) Groundbreaking soundproofing component
Monitoring tracks on a heaving dance floor is a breeze with the HDJ-1500s, no matter how rowdy the party gets. Sound insulation around low and medium frequencies (300 Hz to 1,300 Hz) has improved by an impressive 4 dB compared to the HDJ-1000s thanks to the innovative sound-isolation chamber on the bass reflex port, which eliminates background noise.
3) Highly durable and lightweight
The HDJ-1500s’ moving headband and hinges are composed of rugged yet lightweight magnesium alloy to withstand the rigors of professional use. Plus, the single-sided cable can be easily replaced if it gets damaged, further prolonging the life of the headphones.
4) Supreme comfort
The narrow ear cup design creates a tight seal on your ear to block out external sound, while the low-resilience urethane memory foam ear pads make sure the HDJ-1500s are easy on the ears even during prolonged use.
