Pioneer has a long-standing and well-earned reputation with professional DJs thanks to their amazing build quality, beautifully designed and high quality products within their DJ range. It was only a matter of time to see them create headphones to sit along side their mixers and decks and they have not disappointed. However the popular HDJ-1000s and the flagship HDJ-2000s may be out the price range for budding DJs who want a taste of the high life. So now, with superior build quality and features that you can find on the HDJ-2000 but at a price that’s within grasp, you have the Pioneer HDJ-500 Headphones.
The Pioneer HDJ-500 Headphones have a beautifully uncomplicated visual design that most will find appealing and are available in a range of colours: black, white and red. The aesthetics of the headphones mirror their use, as although they are designed to be used primarily as DJ headphones, they are also great for use at home and on the move. With this in mind Pioneer have also included a 1-metre cable along with a 3-metre and a gold plated 6.3 mm adaptor. This keeps you covered no matter what circumstance your using them in.
Of course style and versatility are all very well but what do they sound like? Well being designed by Pioneer you would expect exceptional fidelity and great sound quality and the Pioneer HDJ-500 Headphones don’t fall short. With crystal clear audio reproduction and with particular attention paid to mid and low frequencies thanks to technology borrowed from the top of the range HDJ-2000, you are unlikely to find better at this price point.
Structurally the Pioneer HDJ-500 Headphones are the most lightweight in the series. They also offer close-fitting ear pads for improved isolation and a flexible headband for the best fit possible. The right ear cup rotates through 60 degrees to offer improved monitoring and comfort options.
