PIONEER DJ UNVEILS NEW PROFESSIONAL STUDIO HEADPHONES

HRM-7_angleB_low_0115.jpg

HRM-7 Studio Headphones Built for Sound and Comfort

LONG BEACH, Calif. (January 21, 2015) – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s Professional Sound and Visual Division today introduced the HRM-7 studio headphones intended for home and private studio listening, providing excellent audio reproduction with maximum comfort.  Pioneer’s latest headphones incorporate a newly developed HD driver suited for high-resolution audio sources and capable of reproducing frequencies up to 40 kHz.  Its “dual chamber” bass reflex enclosure also helps produce lower bass response as well as provide better control for increased audio accuracy.  The incorporated hybrid memory-foam ear pads provide a snug fit around the ears and maximum comfort when worn for extended listening sessions. 

“We wanted to design studio headphones that feel as good as they sound,” said David Arevalo, director, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The HRM-7 delivers rich and powerful sound ideal for a professional type of listening, whether at home or in a studio.  These headphones have a natural response ideal for all types of music listening including high resolution audio. ”   

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 Pioneer HRM-7 will be available in March with a suggested retail price of $239 USD.

XDJ-RX_img1_angle.jpg

XDJ-RX Mixes Together Two Players, a Mixer, and Large Monitor for Use with rekordbox™

LONG BEACH, Calif. (January 20, 2015) – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division today introduced the XDJ-RX, an all-in-one DJ console that incorporates two separate digital players, a mixer, and a built-in monitor.  The uniquely designed DJ system is intended for users of the popular Pioneer rekordbox™ music management software, which enables DJs to quickly play prepared music stored on a USB device, eliminating the need to connect or carry a separate computer for use as a music source.  The XDJ-RX’s featured 7-inch LCD screen provides a window of information including simultaneous display of music waveforms from each integrated player.  The unit also emulates Pioneer’s well-known professional players with built-in key performance functions including HOT CUE, BEAT EFFECTS, SOUND COLOR FX and a new LOOP SLICE feature.

 “Pioneer’s XDJ-RX can stand on its own as a full-blown yet portable DJ system without the need for a separate computer, and with the built-in monitor, all you need is a USB device filled with your music,” said David Arevalo, marketing director, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.  “Best of all, you can prepare your music in our rekordbox software so all you need to do is plug in the console to an existing audio setup and you’re off and playing.”


Large LCD Color Display

The XDJ-RX features a high-resolution 7-inch LCD color monitor located on the top center of the console to display an array of music information. 

  • Browse Screen – Displays music information stored on a connected USB device by playlist, artist, album, track, history and folder. 
  • Wave and Wave Zoom – During music playback, the entire waveform of the music from each deck can be viewed simultaneously on the screen.  Users can also change the resolution of the waveforms with a turn of the rotary knob, providing five levels of Wave Zoom to show the details of the music transitions.
  • Beat Count – Accurately displays the number of beats until a set point.

 

Performance Functions

The XDJ-RX follows a similar layout as Pioneer’s flagship models and offers similar functions and operability. 

  • Beat Sync – The feature let users instantly match tempo and beat location of songs.
  • Quantize– Utilizing the Quantize feature, cue points and loops can be set perfectly on beat. The Quantize feature ensures cue points are set accurately and automatically, correcting and synching beats during manual looping or real-time cueing to reduce off-beat mistakes.
  • Slip Mode – When activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a loop, reverse or scratch and continues audible playback at the exact time when the loop, reverse or scratch is ended, resulting in smoother transitions.
  • Beat Effects and Sound Color FX – The Beat Effects function offers eight different effects (Delay, Echo, Spiral, Reverb, Trans, Flanger, Pitch and Roll) for additional creative audio performances. The console also includes four Sound Color FX functions (Noise, Gate/Comp, Crush and Filter), which add numerous audio effect combinations and arrangements to currently playing music with the simple twist of a knob. 
  • Loop Slice (new) – Separates the loop range into four parts and enables repeated playback of the separated sections.
  • Hot Cue – Enables instant playback of a set point in the music.  Each player can set four Hot Cue points.
  • Auto Beat Loop – Performs a loop play by automatically setting loop-out points from the BPM of the music 


rekordbox Music Management

The XDJ-RX includes Pioneer’s rekordbox music management software for advanced preparation of music.  Available in versions for Mac® and PC, users can configure, edit, and save a history of music sets.  For added convenience, Pioneer also offers the rekordbox App, which enables users to prepare and manage music stored on their portable devices as well as analyze music via Wave Zoom, key, wave, beat grid, BPM, and ID3 Tag, create playlists, active loops, cue/loop points and beat location settings, and save playback logs of music. The App is compatible with iOS and Android™ devices and is available at no charge in the App Store or Google Play. 

Versatility

The XDJ-RX features two built-in USB ports for connection of multiple music sources.  In addition, the unit can record music sessions onto a connected USB device, saved in WAV format for future playback. For maximum versatility, the mixer section can be used as a standalone 2-channel mixer for use with external players and turntables.   

Additional Features

  • DJ Software MIDI Control
  • My Settings – The function settings of a player can be saved to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or USB storage device.  For additional convenience, the settings can also be made on the rekordbox App or software, giving users the ability to switch to their settings when connecting to a CDJ-900NXS or CDJ-2000NXS 
  • Traffic Light – Utilizing a multi-player PRO DJ LINK connection, a green light indicates that music will sound harmonious with the key of the music being played
  • Active Loop – Automatically starts loops when playback begins from a specified point
  • Auto Standby – Automatically senses active operation and the presence of input signals, switching to standby mode when inputs are not detected for a long period
  • Compatibility with Native Instruments TRAKTOR® PRO2 DJ Software 

 

 

The XDJ-RX rekordbox DJ system will be available in March with a suggested retail price of $1,799 USD.
