Pioneer DJ to Release New HDJ-2000MK2 Headphones
Pioneer DJ will release the HDJ-2000MK2 headphones – a new version of its flagship HDJ-2000s – in late February, after being showcased to visitors at the NAMM 2015 tradeshow in California earlier this month (January).
Designed after listening to years of feedback from DJs, Pioneer has ensured that the HDJ-2000MK2s provide optimised audio quality and sound isolation, greater comfort and a robust build – ideal for mobile DJs who need headphones that will withstand the wear and tear of life on the road.
Available in black or silver, the HDJ-2000MK2s maintain the classic look and quality build of Pioneer’s original HDJ-2000s. However, the company has improved the sound quality and comfort of the headphones, offering limited distortion, deep bass and clear treble, memory foam ear pads and a lightweight magnesium alloy headband.
With a 38µm-thick diaphragm, 50mm drivers and a precision-rolled voice coil, the HDJ-2000MK2s ensure resolution and a high-fidelity frequency response of 5Hz to 30,000Hz. Furthermore, external noise has been reduced in the mid-to-low frequencies, by 7dB compared to the HDJ-2000s, thanks to Pioneer’s use of low-volume air chambers.
The foldable headphones also come with a hard carry case and two detachable cords (coiled and straight), making them compact, durable and portable enough for the travel needs and extensive usage of the mobile DJ. The HDJ-2000MK2s’ cables feature detachable mini-XLR and L-type mini-jack connectors, the latter of which prevents the headphones being pulled out unwantedly.
The Pioneer DJ HDJ-2000MK2 headphones will be available from late February 2015.
