Two Inner-Ear Headphones from Pioneer DJ Are Ready to Be Heard
LONG BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.'s Professional Sound and Visual Division
today unveiled the DJE-2000
enclosed inner ear headphones, designed and sound-tuned for use by
today's advanced DJs. With the clear understanding that DJs have
specific audio characteristic requirements and traditionally listen to
music differently, paying closer attention to the particular beats of
music, Pioneer's new inner-ear headphones were made for both their
leisure music listening and for music preparation while on the go. Both
models have unique design features including large high quality 9.4
millimeter drivers, replaceable and detachable cables, and
interchangeable earphone tips that dampen external noise.

"Conventional DJ headphones are great for use when connected to a
system, but not always ideal when you're listening to music on a
portable device. Many DJs feel regular headphones are too big to carry
around while on the go, which is why we created these new in-ear
headphones. We want DJs to get the best of both worlds, obtaining the
same DJ quality sound found in our HDJ headphones but in a much smaller
form factor so portability isn't an issue," said David Arevalo, director
of marketing, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer
Electronics (USA) Inc. "Both the DJE-1500 and DJE-2000 offer great sound
quality that emphasizes on critical frequencies DJs look for, with mids
and highs more pronounced and easier to pick out."
Hybrid 2-Way Driver - The DJE-2000 is designed with a "hybrid"
2-way driver system for producing clear and more precise audio quality
throughout the entire frequency spectrum. With the use of rare and
powerful magnets for its speakers, the larger 9.4 mm driver located in
the back of the earphone produces low bass frequencies with impact,
while the front driver efficiently generates critical mid and high
frequencies so key instrumental sounds DJs pay close attention to,
such as snare drums and cymbals, are more pronounced.
Multiple Earphone Tips - The flagship model includes three
Comply™ foam earphone tips (S/M/L) to provide an extremely comfortable
fit as well as reduce unwanted external sounds from entering and
interfering with the original music. In addition, the model also
includes four silicone tips (XS/S/M/L) and one triple flanged silicone
tip to accommodate different sizes of ear canals.
Detachable Cable - Pioneer provides a detachable MMCX connector
for maximum versatility. The cable is applied with a special textile
coating that improves durability and reduces tangling and twisting.
Dynamic Driver - The DJE-1500 utilizes a large 9.4 mm driver
and CCAW voice coil reinforced by a powerful magnet for efficient
production of a wide frequency range for different types of music
listening. The diaphragm of the speaker is made of a ceramic powder
coating composite designed to reduce internal vibration that can cause
distortion to be induced into the original music content.
Adjustable Housing - The DJE-1500 is designed for over-the-ear
or conventional fitting utilizing a rotatable housing that can easily
be adjusted to the user's listening preference.
Earphone Tips - The unit also includes a medium sized Comply™
foam earphone tip for maximum comfort, fit and noise isolation, as
well as four silicone tips (XS/S/M/L) to accommodate different sizes
of ear canals.
Detachable Cable - Pioneer also designed the MMCX connector to
be detachable for increased versatility. In addition, several inches
of the cable that plugs into the earphone are made of memory-shape
resin material to help ensure the earphone stays in place when used in
The DJE-2000 and the DJE-1500 headphones are available in April with
suggested retail prices of $359 and $189 respectively.
