Professional DJ headphones built for beatmatching.
The HDJ-500 DJ headphones adapt the styling and performance cues of Pioneer’s top-of-the-line HDJ-2000 headphones. Designed with maximum comfort and durability in mind, the HDJ-500 uses urethane pads that allow the ear pads to mold around your head and ears for a snug, slip-resistant fit. Additionally, the urethane pads are wrapped in high-quality leather, providing greater comfort. The main structure of the headphones is crafted with a magnesium alloy for durability and light weight, making them great for travel and long periods of use.
The HDJ-500’s stylish design is matched by its professional sound quality. They provide clear audio reproduction, especially in the critical low and midrange frequencies—key for remixing. The HDJ-500s efficiently reproduce the low-frequency range by combining 40 mm diameter drivers with a thick 19um (micrometers) diaphragm, and copper-clad, aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coil. Snare and kick drum sounds are clearer, making beatmatching even easier for DJs.
Rotating Arm Structure
For maximum flexibility during performances, the HDJ-500 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.
Two Interchangeable Cords
The headphones include two interchangeable cords providing freedom of movement during performances. The traditional 1.2 meter coiled cord (extends to 3m) is perfect for regular DJ performances, while the 1-meter straight cord is ideal for leisure listening
