Sonic Style: Pioneer DJ releases the HDJ-700 headphones with optimized sound reproduction


September 8, 2015: Pioneer DJ is proud to introduce a new pair of stylish headphones that look great and sound superb – the HDJ-700. The robust, fully enclosed HDJ-700 is fine-tuned to reproduce rich, clear mid-to-low frequencies for monitoring dance music, and has a simple, sleek design with color options to suit every style. 

This latest addition takes inspiration from Pioneer DJ’s top-flight headphones – the rotating ear cup with rubber grips enables easy one-ear monitoring, while the replaceable cable prolongs the life of the headphones. With soft, snug-fitting ear pads, and a sturdy, lightweight headband, DJs receive a comfortable fit as well as peace of mind that their headphones will stay in place.

Available in four designs – matte black, matte black with a gold or red stripe, and cool white – the HDJ-700 has a distinctive style of its own.


  1. Fine-tuned for clear mid-to-low frequencies and accurate monitoring

The HDJ-700’s audio circuitry is optimized for monitoring dance music. Narrow ear pads and 40 mm driver units with rare earth magnets ensure a powerful bass sound, while a thicker than usual (19 micrometer) diaphragm and a copper-clad aluminium wire (CCAW) voice coil accurately reproduce kicks and snares. 

  1. Tough, durable build and replaceable cables

The HDJ-700 inherits a rugged, stainless steel headband from the HDJ-1500 to ensure a long life of service. The headphones come with two interchangeable side-mount cords: a 1.2m coiled cord – which extends to around 3m – and a 1m straight cord.

  1. Soft ear cups for a snug, comfortable fit

Soft, textured polyurethane ear cups fit the ear snugly and ensure the DJ’s comfort over long periods of use.

  1. Design and rotatable ear cups inspired by the top-flight HDJ-2000MK2

Spin-finished aluminium hinges, a lightweight build and the sleek, stylish design are all inspired by Pioneer DJ’s ever-popular flagship headphones. Plus, the HDJ-700’s right earpiece can be rotated forwards or backwards by up to 60 degrees to enable one-ear monitoring, while the handy rubber grip makes it quick and easy to put the cup back in position.
