New From Pioneer – HDJ-S7 On-Ear DJ Headphones
Some months ago we covered the launch of the Pioneer HDJ-X10, HDJ-X7 and HDJ-X5 over-ear DJ headphones. Following that launch, today the Japanese company has announced the release of the new HDJ-S7 professional on-ear DJ headphones.
According to Pioneer, the HDJ-S7 offers outstanding audio quality, superior durability and improved functionality for comfortable DJing.
Available in black or white, designed and built to be highly robust, they’ve cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test3, as well as stringent in-house durability tests.
High-quality audio design
The HDJ-S7 headphones are equipped with our newly developed 40-mm HD drivers, making them the world’s first on-ear DJ headphones to reproduce high-resolution sound from 5Hz to 40 kHz – the same frequency range achieved by the flagship HDJ-X10 over-ear headphones. This ensures clear sound separation, from rich and tight bass to crystal-clear mid-to-high frequencies. As a result, the HDJ-S7 headphones deliver the immersive sound needed for precise monitoring in the loudest clubs.
4-core twisted-structure cable
The independent ground wire in the 4-core twisted-structure cable provides superior left and right channel separation, improving sound quality.
Bass reflex chamber
The bass reflex chamber in the upper housing ensures excellent bass response and sound insulation.
Take the HDJ-S7 headphones on the road and feel confident they’ll handle severe conditions and heavy use. The headphones have cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test, as well demanding stress testing.
Highly durable materials and construction
To make the HDJ-S7 headphones highly durable and lightweight at the same time, metal components are used in parts that are tested in high stress environments to create a strong construction for professional use.
Swivel mechanism for all monitoring styles
When developing any new product Pioneer creates numerous prototypes, each time with improvements based on the feedback of highly respected international DJs who test the equipment. Using this feedback and the results of their analysis of many different styles of monitoring, they’ve made sure the HDJ-S7 headphones are comfortable to use for any monitoring style, especially when hanging them on your neck with the swivel angle fixed to 45 degrees forwards. What’s more, the outside of the housing is textured for enhanced grip, so you can quickly grab it and start listening.
Comfortable and flexible headband
To help you find the perfect fit, the HDJ-S7 headphones feature a flexible, durable headband. Passing stringent tests, including opening and closing 20,000 times, they’re built to with stand intense use.
Comfortable ear pads
Improvements made to the ear pads (compared to those on the HDJ-C70 headphones) enable you to DJ in comfort for longer. Carefully selected high-quality urethane material is used that’s soft to the touch and provides cushioning.
Replacement parts available
Easily refresh the detachable cables and ear pads on the HDJ-S7 headphones using replacement parts (available separately).
When you’re travelling to gigs, you can be confident your HDJ-S7 headphones will be well protected in the included compact carry case. Made from strong materials to protect your headphones from bumps and knocks on flights and in transit, the case has pockets for storing accessories such as USB devices and SD cards.
Various accessories included
The HDJ-S7 headphones come with two detachable cables: a 1.2 m coiled cable (approximately 3.0 m when extended) and a 1.6 m straight cable. An L-type mini-jack prevents the connection from being knocked or accidentally disconnected during performances, even in cramped booths.
To guarantee long-term, reliable performance, a 2-year warranty is included.

The HDJ-S7 headphones will be available from mid-May 2018 at an SRP of £179 including VAT.
