Pioneer DJ is releasing the HDJ-700s, stylish headphones that look good and sound superb. The robust, fully enclosed HDJ-700s are fine-tuned to reproduce rich, clear mid to low frequencies for monitoring dance music, and they have a simple, sleek design with colour options to suit every style.
This latest addition takes inspiration from Pioneer DJ’s top-flight headphones – the rotating ear cup with rubber grips enables easy one-ear monitoring, while the replaceable cable prolongs the life of the headphones. DJs’ comfort is ensured by soft, snug-fitting ear pads, and a sturdy, lightweight headband keeps the headphones securely in place.
Available in four designs – matt black, matt black with a gold or red stripe, and cool white – the HDJ-700s have a distinctive style of their own. They’re available from October 2015, at an SRP of €139, including VAT.
KEY FEATURES OF THE HDJ-700 SERIES
1. Fine-tuned for clear mid to low frequencies and accurate monitoring
The HDJ-700s’ audio circuitry is optimised for monitoring dance music. Narrow ear pads and 40 mm driver units with rare earth magnets ensure a powerful bass sound, while a thicker than usual (19 micrometre) diaphragm and a copper-clad aluminium wire (CCAW) voice coil accurately reproduce kicks and snares.
2. Tough, durable build and replaceable cables
The HDJ-700s inherit a rugged, stainless steel headband from the HDJ-1500s to ensure a long life of service. The headphones come with two interchangeable side-mount cords: a 1.2-metre coiled cord – which extends to around 3 metres – and a 1-metre straight cord.
3. Soft ear cups for a snug, comfortable fit
Soft, textured polyurethane ear cups fit the ear snugly and ensure the DJ’s comfort over long periods of use.
4. Design and rotatable ear cups inspired by the top-flight HDJ-2000MK2s
Spin-finished aluminium hinges, a lightweight build and the sleek, stylish design are all inspired by Pioneer DJ’s ever-popular flagship headphones. Plus the HDJ-700s’ right earpiece can be rotated forwards or backwards by up to 60 degrees to enable one-ear monitoring, while the handy rubber grip makes it quick and easy to put the cup back in position.
