TO EVOLVE WITH NEXT GENERATION HDJ-2000MK2

HDJ-2000MK2 Headphones Delivers Exceptional Audio Performance and Maximum Comfort

ANAHEIM, Calif. (January 22, 2015) – 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 38?m-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.

Additional Features:

  • 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.
