I should probably have left this announcement for our resident DJ Duncan, but as an aspiring one (and resident trumpeter) I’ll bring you the news that Pioneer has just announced its HDJ-2000 professional DJ headphones.
Let’s take a look at the specs:
These fully-enclosed dynamic headphones have a decent frequency response of 5Hz-30kHz, 36Ω impedance, 107dB sensitivity, and 3,500mW maximum power input. They are constructed with 50mm dome type drive units and come with a 1.2m-long coiled type connecting lead which connects via mini-XLR.
The swivel/fold mechanism is constructed from lightweight magnesium and the padding is constructed from urethane-foam (memory-foam) and protein leather for extra comfort.
Each ear-cup can be swivelled 90 degrees and features auto-return thanks to Pioneer’s new i-hinge, and there’s a switch for selecting stereo or mono input.
Available from “late 2008” for £199.
