Reproduces a rich low-range and increases the sound pressure by utilizing our newly developed 40 mm diameter driver unit, which uses a rare-earth super magnet and by narrowing the ear pad opening. Further, by adopting the thickest diaphragm ever at 19 mm (micrometers) and a copper clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coil, the headphones reproduce the clear lowmid range sounds necessary for DJ mixing, such as snare and kick drum sounds, which allows even entry level DJs to readily pick out the tempo of the music.
Compatible with various DJ monitoring styles
The headphones allow for various DJ monitoring style by employing a rotating arm structure that allows it to slide to about 60 degrees to the right housing and via the flexible headband we created that maintains side pressure, allowing the DJ to listen with just one ear.
Uses an interchangeable side-mount cord that doesnt hinder DJ movement
The headphones adopted an interchangeable cord that plugs into one side of the headphones so it doesnt hinder the movement of the DJ. The headphones come with a 1.2 m coiled cord (extends to about 3 m) and a 1 m straight cord, which can be used for different purposes and scenes - whether listening to music out on the town or while DJing.
