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.
- 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.

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s Professional Sound and Visual Division continues to bring the most advanced DJ gear into the market, and today introduced the next generation of its flagship professional DJ headphones, the HDJ-2000MK2. The top-of-the-line model promises to deliver Pioneer DJ’s exceptional sound quality from a newly redesigned body that provides a sleek and modern cosmetic look. The HDJ-2000MK2 incorporates large 50mm drivers and features low-volume air chambers for noise isolation and high quality construction to achieve maximum audio performance. The new HDJ-2000MK2 will be available in two colors, silver and black.
“Much like its predecessor, the HDJ-2000MK2 is designed to endure harsh, loud environments so DJs can clearly hear even the most subtle changes in the music they’re mixing with,” said David Arevalo, marketing director, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “We made several improvements, both in sound quality and looks, to make this HDJ-2000MK2 the ‘go to’ headphone for true DJ professionals.”
Unmatched Sound Quality
The exceptional audio quality produced by the HDJ-2000MK2 comes from using large 50 mm drivers that can clearly and efficiently reproduce a wide spectrum of frequencies. The large drivers, combined with copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coils, rare-earth magnets and 38μm-thick diaphragms, generate sounds with great accuracy and control with increased output in the lower bass region. With the HDJ-2000MK2, users can easily distinguish between vocals and instruments, such as kick and snare drums, making beat matching easier with less effort even in noisy environments.
Sound Isolation Design
The HDJ-2000MK2 is designed with Pioneer’s innovative sound-isolation chamber as part of its bass reflex port, which isolates low and mid frequencies in the 300 Hz to 1,600 Hz by as much as seven decibels compared to the original model, resulting in more defined mid-bass/mid-range response.
Refined New Looks
Much like its predecessor, the new HDJ-2000MK2 offers cosmetics that complement Pioneer’s high quality and performance with a sleek yet simple design. The model incorporates large ultra-comfortable low-resilience urethane memory foam ear pads to create a tight seal around the ears and significantly reduce external sounds. The urethane memory pads are finished in long-lasting protein leather for great feel and extended comfort.
The HDJ-2000MK2 features a flexible headband and hinges made of strong yet lightweight magnesium alloy to withstand the rigors of extended professional use. Each earpiece swivels up to 90 degrees and can be flipped around 180 degrees for one ear listening applications. In addition, the headphones features a quick connect single-sided cable for ease of use and convenience.
- Foldable design for compact storage
- Included 1.2m single output curled cord and 1.6m straight woven sheathed cord with mini XLR connections
- Convenient low profile L-plug connector
- Adjustable headband
- Protective carrying case
Both color versions of the HDJ-2000MK2 will be available in February with a suggested price of $449.
