Pioneer has just introduced four new sets of headphones ranging in price from $59 to $89, these new headphones are DJ inspired style and supposedly offer very good sound. Pioneer also announced two new sets of ear buds in their Core Audio line priced at $19.99 and $24.99, along with a set of over-ear style headphones as well for $44.99.
The DJ-inspired line includes four distinct models, each featuring a sound tuning philosophy similarly found in Pioneer’s professional DJ headphone line. This unique tuning heightens the presentation and impact of high and low musical notes and is favored by DJs in order to make it easier to time and mix music tracks. All models feature high power and efficient performance via large 40 mm drivers as well as portability and high comfort for extended wear. Each model is aggressively styled in a variety of colors to match its performance level, and will be available for pre-orders beginning Friday, July 16, 2010 on Amazon.com and djinspired.pioneerelectronics.com, and at retail in August 2010.
