We all know the convergence of audio + smartphone features is next big thing for the headphone world, so here comes R&D behemoth Pioneer Audio leading the way with the Pioneer HDJ-500T model. Combining the deep sound of the standard-bearer Pioneer HDJ-2000 series professional DJ headphones with the modern convenience of microphone and iPhone/iPod controller on cord, this killer can delivers the best of both worlds for producers and music lovers intent on not missing that next important call. For the digital listener on the move, Pioneer's 40mm drivers inside the HDJ-500T presents deep, big-sounding bass with excellent definition of electronic low-end timbres underneath clean vocal mids and non-scratchy uppermost highs. The HDJ-500 focus is on clearly reproduced midranges and low-mids required by DJs needing precisely defined snare and kick drum tones for their work. The HDJ-500T well-engineered build construction provides excellent long-term / long-session wearing comfort along with strong ambient noise isolation from the padded closed-back earcups. The HDJ-500 classic design DNA comes directly from the category-leading Pioneer 'HDJ' headphone series for ultimate acoustic performance plus full telephony features / Apple control, so rest assured your overall "bang-for-the-headphone-dollar" remains very high with these versatile cans.

The Pioneer HDJ-500T includes two detachable headphone cables in the package; one 3 meter coiled cord long enough to reach the decks for studio or club work and a shorter 1 meter length perfect for tangle-free mobile / portable personal listening uses. The 1 meter cord also contains a built-in microphone housing and controller. The analog built-in Apple-ready Pioneer mic system delivers great call clarity for your iPhone 3G/3GS/4 telephone conversations. Both cords attach via a single-sided connection system that avoids dreaded 'Y-cord' tangling issues. The Pioneer HDJ-500 headband does not collapse or fold down for travel or storage but the left earcup does rotate away approximately 60 degrees for one-ear DJ mixing styles. As with most Pioneer headphones, the HDJ-500T headband design is tough, flexible and ready to take a tough night out at the club or rockin' the skate park.
