Essential Audio: Introducing the HDJ-CX professional on-ear DJ headphones

Lightweight headphones designed for absolute comfort and tuned to deliver tight audio

AlphaTheta Corporation has today announced the release of the brand new professional on-ear DJ headphone from its Pioneer DJ brand: the HDJ-CX. HDJ-CX is so lightweight you might forget you’re wearing them. Specially designed for absolute comfort and tuned to deliver tight audio with a wide range for mixing and monitoring music in any environment, the new headphones also feature a high level of sound insulation and are built to last.

You can wear the HDJ-CX headphones for several hours and hardly feel their presence. This supreme level of comfort comes from the brand-new lightweight, ergonomic design. Every tiny detail has been considered, including the wiring in the cable which has been slimmed down to reduce weight, and even the positioning of the curl on the coiled cable which has been moved closer to the plug for greater balance. It’s easy to find a perfect fit thanks to all this, plus a high level of flex in the sturdy, stainless steel headband and adjustable earcups.

Once you’ve got them on, you might be surprised by the range of sound produced by such a lightweight pair of headphones. Mids and highs are clear and precise while lows are fat and powerful thanks to the new PEEK-PU-PEEK composite film diaphragm1. Bass reflex chambers in the housings improve the low frequency response even more and the sound insulators bring a higher level of audio insulation, so you’ll hear every nuance of the music.

Lightweight and flexible design

You can wear the HDJ-CX comfortably from your first mix to your last. Weighing just 136 g without the cable, they’re also ergonomically designed to minimize any stress to your head, neck, or shoulders. What’s more, the stainless steel headband features a ladder-like structure for extra flexibility and stress resistance so you can easily find your perfect fit.

Tight, wide-ranging sound and superior insulation

The new PEEK-PU-PEEK composite film diaphragm provides tight sound with a frequency response of 5 Hz to 30 kHz. This means you can clearly hear the kicks, snare drums, and hi-hats for precise monitoring and mixing in any environment. The φ35 mm driver units realize the input power to reach 2,000 mW. The bass reflex chambers in the housings improve low frequency response even further while the sound insulators create a higher level of audio insulation, so you’ll hear the full bass sound along with every nuance in the music.

Highly robust construction

Don’t let the lightweight feel of these headphones fool you – they’re rugged and built to last. All the components are extra tough, including the steel core of the headband. Made to withstand the rigors of constant use on the road, they’ve passed demanding tests that other professional Pioneer DJ headphones are subjected to, as well as the stringent US Military Standard MIL-STD-810H Shock test.

Interchangeable cables and accessories

Set your headphones up the way you like by choosing from the 2 supplied cables – straight or coiled. To make sure you never lose your 1/4" plug adapter, clip the adapter holder neatly onto your cable so it’s always at hand. A pair of replacement ear pads are also included, and you can expect them to come in handy eventually because these headphones should serve you well for a long time.
