Pioneer has designed a new range of DJ headphones to create the HDJ-X10, HDJ-X7 and HDJ-X5, offering brand-new headphone experiences to suit every DJ.

The new flagship HDJ-X10 headphones are designed for professional DJs to use at clubs and festivals. Built to withstand the rigors of the road, they’re comfortable to wear for long sets and allow DJs to hear frequencies.

Thanks to their HD drivers, the HDJ-X10 headphones are the world’s first DJ headphones to produce high-resolution sound ranging from 5Hz to 40kHz. When connected to Pioneer’s TOUR1 set-up or the NXS2 set-up, you can experience up to 96kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio reproduction with superb clarity and sound separation. And in another world first for DJ headphones, the ear pads and headband on the HDJ-X10 model are protected from sweat and dirt by water repellent nano coating. This means you can keep your headphones looking fresh and easily prolong their lifespan with regular cleaning.

The HDJ-X7 headphones are based on their previous flagship model, the HDJ-2000MK2, and are equipped with newly developed drivers, while the HDJ-X5 headphones inherit high-quality audio design from the model above, giving you clean monitoring even at high volumes.

Whichever way you prefer to wear your headphones, you can comfortably use any HDJ-X model for long periods of time thanks to the flexible swivel mechanism and housing that have been designed with input from professional DJs. They’re built to be highly robust, too, with all models having cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test, as well as our stringent in-house durability tests

The new headphones will be available from early October.
