  NAMM 2015: HRM-7 Headphones, Pioneer Enters The Studio Monitoring Game

No Comments DJ TECH

Coming up just 24 hours after of their much-talked-about XDJ-RX annoucement, Pioneer DJhas another new surprise for the industry, a new set of headphones, the HRM-7s. These are professional studio monitoring headphones with producers in mind a bit of a departure for Pioneer from their traditional fare which mostly caters to DJ applications.

Check out the introduction video below, and additional specs beyond that.

 

Large HD Driver

The large 40 millimeter HD driver combined with a copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coil and neodymium magnets built into the HRM-7 produce outstanding audio playback and great sound localization. The new HD driver along with its strong magnet structure can reproduce a very wide frequency response from 5 Hz to 40 kHz, ideal for all types of music listening including high-resolution audio files.

Dual Chamber Bass Reflex Enclosure

Pioneer developed a dual chamber bass reflex enclosure to enable the headphones to generate lower bass frequencies while still maintaining great control of the HD driver for increased audio accuracy. The sound isolating dual chamber (air chamber) prevents outside noise from affecting the enclosure, essentially increasing bass response while the integrated ports enhance the efficiency of the driver. The housing (enclosure) is further reinforced by a 3-layer damping structure, suppressing vibrations and unwanted resonance, resulting in improved audio response out of the HD driver.

Large Housing and Comfortable Ear pads

The housing of the HRM-7 creates a large listening chamber to produce a wide sound field for better sound localization. Wrapped around the housings are full-sized hybrid memory foam ear pads, that feel extremely comfortable, even when worn for long periods of time. Furthermore, the memory foam ear pads are covered with soft velour that contours around the ears to help reduce exterior sounds entering the listening chamber.

Designed to Fit

The 3D ergonomic design further optimizes the angled fit of the ear pads around the head while the free adjust head cushion helps produce a snug fit across the entire head without creating uncomfortable force.

Additional Features:

  • Detachable 1.2 m curled and 3 m straight cables using Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) litz wire.

  • Replacement velour ear pads

  • Gold-plated 6.3 mm stereo plug adapter.

The HRM-7 headphones are due to launch in stores in March, 2015
