The Latest Headphone Addition to Pioneer DJ, Featuring Minimalist Design, Tight Sound and Long-Wear Comfort

AlphaTheta Music Americas, Inc. announces the release of the HDJ-CX from its Pioneer DJ brand – a brand-new model of lightweight professional on-ear DJ headphones. Specially engineered to deliver premier comfort and tight audio with a wide range for mixing and monitoring music in any environment, the HDJ-CX headphones feature a high level of sound insulation and are designed to last.

The all-new HDJ-CX headphones can be worn for several hours with artists hardly feeling the headphone’s presence. This supreme comfort level roots in the headphone’s new lightweight, ergonomic design. Every tiny design detail was considered, including a slimmer cable wiring to reduce weight, the coiled cable curl positioning sitting closer to the plug for greater balance, high flex in the sturdy, stainless steel headband and adjustable earcups.

Aside from comfort, the headphones outperform its weight with its range of sound production. Mids and highs are clear and precise while lows are fat and powerful with the new PEEK-PU-PEEK composite film diaphragm1. Bass reflex chambers in the housings improve the low frequency response and the sound insulators offer a higher level of audio insulation—enabling artists to hear every music nuance.

In addition to passing demanding tests similar to other professional headphones in the Pioneer DJ range, the HDJ-CX headphone model also passes the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810H Shock Test—proving its durability and resilience against physical impact.

Lightweight and Flexible Design
Comfort is key with the HDJ-CX headphones. Aside from being incredibly light – weighing less than a third of a pound without the cable (136g) – the headphones feature an ergonomic design to minimize head, neck and shoulder stress. The headband and the earcup weight distribution, along with the headband cushion width are carefully adjusted for optimal balance. The wire inside the included cables features a reduced diameter, and the position of the spiral on the coiled cable is closer to the plug connecting to the artist’s mixer, for a better balance with the straight part of the cable. The stainless steel headband on the HDJ-CX features a ladder-like structure for added flexibility and stress resistance so the artist can easily find their perfect fit.

Tight, Wide-Ranging Sound and Superior Insulation for Precise Monitoring In Any Environment
The HDJ-CX headphones come equipped with a brand-new driver unit and special tuning to deliver crystal-clear audio. The new PEEK-PU-PEEK composite film diaphragm2 delivers tight sound with a frequency response of 5 Hz to 30 kHz—allowing artists to clearly hear the kicks, snare drums, and hi-hats for precise monitoring and mixing in any environment. Theφ35 mm driver units realize the input power to reach 2,000 mW while minimizing distortion, even at high volume. In addition, the bass reflex chambers in the housings improve low frequency response, while the sound insulators craft a high level of audio insulation—allowing artists to hear the full bass sound along with every nuance in the music.

Highly Robust Construction
Even though the HDJ-CX headphones are lightweight, they are rugged and built to last with extra tough components, including the headband’s steel core. Designed to withstand the rigors of constant use on the road, the headphones pass demanding tests that other professional Pioneer DJ headphones are subjected to, as well as the stringent US Military Standard MIL-STD-810H Shock Test.

Interchangeable Cables and Accessories
Artists can choose from 2 supplied cables – straight or coiled. To ensure artists never lose their 1/4″ plug adapter, the adapter holder clips neatly onto the cable so it’s always on hand. A pair of replacement ear pads are also included.
