Pioneer DJ just announced the HRM-5 and HRM-6 studio monitor headphones here at Musikmesse 2016. Meant for music production monitoring, both headphones feature adjustable headbands, detachable cables, and swivel earcups with isolation thanks to their memory foam ear pads. The HRM-5 has 40mm drivers, while the HRM-6 has 40mm HD drivers which aim to bring greater sound clarity in the high frequencies.
More electronic music is being made at home and on the road, which means you need a decent pair of cans to monitor your productions. It also helps to have headphones that don’t possess the same low-end bump / bass boost that we sometimes love about our DJ cans.
The HRM-5 and HRM-6 are already on our review list. Expect our hands-on coverage of them from the Musikmesse floor in the coming days.
Check out the promo video and photo gallery below.
• The Pioneer DJ HRM-5 and HRM-6 headphones will be available from June 2016 at €109 and €169 respectively. Check out the Pioneer DJ website for more details.
