Technics just announced the EAH-DJ1200, a new pair of on-ear headphones. Based on the long-running RP-DJ1200 headphones, the new EAH-DJ1200 features 40mm speaker drivers and swivelling ear cups that sit on top of your ear while still providing noise isolation. It comes with a detachable lead and folds into a compact shape for easy transport.
It’s been a while since Technics released a pair of headphones: the aforementioned RP-DJ1200 was released in 1996, and the “newer” RP-DH1200 released in the 2000s. These new cans have a sleeker design for a more muted, contemporary look, and while we haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet, they’ll probably be a great alternative to the usual Pioneer DJ and Sennheiser headphones if they sound as good (or better) than the RP-DJ1200.
• The Technics EAH-DJ1200 is coming in fall 2019, with price forthcoming. Check the Technics site for more details.
