IN SHORT

 

Pioneer DJ has launched the new HDJ-S7 on-ear headphones, a replacement for the HDJ-C70. The HDJ-S7 are fitted with 40 mm drivers, and according to Pioneer DJ’s press release, are the first on-ear headphones to be capable of faithfully reproducing high-resolution sound:

The HDJ-S7 headphones are equipped with our newly developed 40-mm HD drivers, making them the world’s first on-ear DJ headphones to reproduce high-resolution sound from 5Hz to 40 kHz – the same frequency range achieved by the flagship HDJ-X10 over-ear headphones. This ensures clear sound separation, from rich and tight bass to crystal-clear mid-to-high frequencies. As a result, the HDJ-S7 headphones deliver the immersive sound needed for precise monitoring in the loudest clubs.

The HDJ-S7 are very similar in design to the legendary Sennheiser HD-25  and should interest DJ’s that want lightweight yet durable and good sounding headphones.

They also feature a 45-degree swivel angle, for easy monitoring, a flexible headband and replaceable ear-cups and ear-pads.

The HDJ-S7 comes in black and in white.

Key Features

  • High-quality audio design: The HDJ-S7 headphones are equipped with our newly developed 40-mm HD drivers, making them the world’s first on-ear DJ headphones to reproduce high-resolution sound from 5Hz to 40 kHz – the same frequency range achieved by the flagship HDJ-X10 over-ear headphones. This ensures clear sound separation, from rich and tight bass to crystal-clear mid-to-high frequencies. As a result, the HDJ-S7 headphones deliver the immersive sound needed for precise monitoring in the loudest clubs.
  • 4-core twisted-structure cable: The independent ground wire in the 4-core twisted-structure cable provides superior left and right channel separation, improving sound quality.
  • Rigorously tested: Take the HDJ-S7 headphones on the road and feel confident they’ll handle severe conditions and heavy use. The headphones have cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test, as well as our own demanding stress testing.
  • Swivel mechanism for all monitoring styles: Using this feedback and the results of our analysis of many different styles of monitoring, we’ve made sure the HDJ-S7 headphones are comfortable to use for any monitoring style, especially when hanging them on your neck with the swivel angle fixed to 45 degrees forwards. What’s more, the outside of the housing is textured for enhanced grip, so you can quickly grab it and start listening.
  • Comfortable and flexible headband: To help you find the perfect fit, the HDJ-S7 headphones feature a flexible, durable headband. Passing stringent tests, including opening and closing 20,000 times, they’re built to withstand intense use
  • Comfortable ear pads: Improvements made to the ear pads (compared to those on the HDJ-C70 headphones) enable you to DJ in comfort for longer. We carefully selected high-quality urethane material that’s soft to the touch and provides cushioning, and we even paid attention to the positioning of the stitching to ensure you don’t feel it.
