Pioneer DJ debuts new HDJ-X5BT over-ear headphones

Pioneer DJ has unveiled its new HDJ-X5BT Bluetooth wireless headphones.

The new over-ear DJ headphones, designed for DJing in the club and monitoring tracks on the move, have a built in microphone and a three-hour charge providing around 20 hours of playback.

They are available in three colours: HDJ-X5BT-K (metallic black), HDJ-X5BT-R (metallic red) and HDJ-X5BT-W (gloss white).

High-resolution, well-balanced tuning and bass reflex chambers in the housings allow the airflow to deliver high quality bass response and sound insulation. The Qualcomm aptX audio codec is supported as well as AAC and SBC for high-quality sound, even when listening wirelessly.

Users are able to connect the included 1.2m coiled cable to automatically disable Bluetooth and all other buttons. The headphones inherit the same housing design, swivel mechanism and flexible headband from the HDJ-X series.

The HDJ-X5BT headphones will be available from early November at a MAP of $149.
