The HDJ-500T-K are new DJ headphones that can be used for DJing, leisure music listening and now hands-free calling.
They have two interchangeable cords: a coiled cord for DJ purposes and a 1.2 meter straight cord with an integrated microphone and phone answer button which lets you answer incoming calls when connected to a smartphone.
For maximum flexibility during performances, the HDJ-500T-K features a rotating arm structure that allows the user to rotate the right earpiece forward and back by as much as 60 degrees. At that position, the flexible headband maintains enough side pressure to allow the DJ to listen to audio on just one side of the headphones.
The HDJ-500T-K adapts the same great sound quality found in Pioneer’s current HDJ-500 line of headphones. It provides clear audio reproduction, enhancing the critical low and mid frequency ranges that are essential for remixing. With a 40 mm diameter driver, thick 19 mm (micrometers) diaphragm and a copper clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coil, the headphone can efficiently reproduce the lower frequency audio range such as snare and kick drum sounds, which can be easily distinguished to make matching the tempo of tracks easier, even for novice DJs.
They have comfortable urethane pads for the ears that allow the headphones to mold around the your head and ears for a snug and slip-resistant fit. Furthermore, the urethane pads are wrapped in high quality leather, providing greater comfort and extended wear. The main structure of the headphones is crafted with magnesium alloy for light weight and durability, making them ideal for travel and long periods of use.
The black HDJ-500T-K DJ headphones will be available in May at a manufacturer suggested retail price of $145.00.
