Pioneer’s New HDJ-C70 Headphones: Memory Foam, Interchangeable Parts & Sound Isolation

No matter what music you mix or what you mix on, headphones are a necessity for any DJ. Pioneer has always been one of the go to DJ brands when one is looking for quality in sound and production. Today, Pioneer has announced the HDJ-C70 headphones as part of their line-up of DJ headphones. Read more about the HDJ-C70’s look, feel, and construction inside.

Sound Quality, Isolation, and Durability

These new headphones feature large 40mm drivers that are tuned to deliver the lower bass frequencies in music. The bass response of the HDJ-C70 headphones is complimented by copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, neodymium magnets and a 2,000 mW input capacity. For those of you that aren’t sound engineers, these headphones will provide a cleaner audio output with increased bass response that won’t muddle the sound.

The HDJ-C70s also feature an air chamber which helps isolate the low and mid frequencies which increases output for settings such as a DJ booth where background noises can be very problematic. Furthermore, the headband, earpads, housing, cushion and cables can be removed and replaced if they are ever damaged. This could be something worth consider for DJs who are always buying new headphones every couple of months.

Pioneer unveils new HDJ-C70 headphones for DJs.
“The HDJ-C70 headphones feature memory foam ear cups, interchangeable parts, and an air chamber for sound isolation in a DJ booth environment.”

Memory Foam and Versatility

The headband of the HDJ-C70 is made of a resin that gives maximum flexibility which is meant to accommodate the constant pulling and twisting of headphones that DJs tend to put on to their headphones. The headphones also feature 15 different positions on the vertical slider arm for DJ heads of all sizes. Also, those arms can rotate up to 90 degrees in both directions for different styles of DJing whether both ear phones are on or one is pushed off the ear.

Cool note about the C70s – Pioneer incorporated memory foam into the ear pads,  meant to create a nice seal around the ears. (And it is probably super comfortable for those five hour DJ sets.)

The Pioneer HDJ-C70 headphones will be available in October for $239.

    Pioneer seem to have forgotten that there is something called the fletcher munson curve!! if they ever knew it existed… DROP between 3.5k to 5.5k stupids*******

    its even more important in dj headphones
    cant believe all the reviewers said the sound had no fault.. brainless fools

  • damthatdj

    hdj 2000 look better than these. my grandma rocked these big ass headphones during the disco era lol

    • Armando

  • eugene

    Looks like tma + hd25…hopefully this can be a pioneer headphone that actually lasts in a dj booth.

  • X

  • dwayne

    Okay, so let’s see an HD-25-II / TMA-1 / C70 shootout!

  • dwayne

    Looooooool STRAIGHT copy.

  • Prof_Strangeman

    They just look like ZOMO’s HD-2500’s….

  • Torman

    AIAIAI TMA-1’s + Sennheiser HD25’s putted in one piece. Looks nice but… I don’t like copycats…

    • Gavin Varitech

      Looks like an improvement on both. Took the best of both of them, left the rest, and made them specifically for deejays (the Senn’s and AIAIAI’s are made to suit as many users as possible, not just deejays). I’ll check them out first but am already thinking I’ll be buying some. Especially since they are going to be less than $200 USD.

      • Gavin Varitech

        I lied. Ordered them already without checking them out. Hope I really like them!

  • Victor Goh

    it has HD25 written all over it

  • I’m quite curious about these. I wanted to ditch my current headphones for quite a while and was concidering the HD-25. Maybe Pioneer built something similar without the present flaws of the HD-25 like cable connectivity problems. Hopefully the price will be a little bit lower so that they’ll cost as much as Sennheiser. We’ll see.

    • Kaarel Kiviloo

      If you want cable connectivity then go HD7 or HD8, but always go Sennheiser.

    • Gavin Varitech

      On the US site they have a manufactured suggested price of $199. So, at least over here, they are going to be cheaper than the HD-25’s. Pioneer finally got the price on something right it seems.
