Pioneer DJ has today announced the HDJ-CX DJ headphones, with a very lightweight, on-ear design reminiscent of the popular Sennheiser HD-25 model.

“Specially designed for absolute comfort and tuned to deliver tight audio with a wide range for mixing and monitoring music in any environment, the new headphones also feature a high level of sound insulation and are built to last.” says the company.

The Pioneer DJ HDJ-CX are an on-ear design, with design elements that recall both Sennheiser’s HD-25 and AIAIAI’s modular headphones.

Pioneer DJ is also pushing their durability, stating that: “As well as passing demanding tests like the other professional headphones in the Pioneer DJ range, the HDJ-CX model has passed the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810H Shock test.”
