The HDJ-2000 is Pioneer’s premier professional headphone. Featuring lightweight magnesium construction and high flux magnets, the HDJ-2000 represents the best in sound quality, fit and durability. Whether you’re playing live or working in the studio, the HDJ-2000 will meet all of your headphone needs.

High-Fidelity Sound Design Made for Pro DJs

Long known for being among the best DJ headphone creators, Pioneer has created the HDJ-2000 headphones. The newest in Pioneer’s DJ headphones, the HDJ-200 has the high sound quality needed for professional use. With a driver unit featuring a diaphragm of the best material and optimal thickness, a voice coil for good balance from bass to treble, and a large, high flux magnet 2” in diameter, the HDJ-2000 pro headphones catch dance music beats (bass drums and cymbal rhythms) needed for DJ performances.

As DJ headphones, the HDJ-2000 provide superior sound insulation to make it easy to cue up the next track, even in noisy clubs and discos. The insulating material inside the headphones was also carefully selected and ear pads provide a tight seal, contributing to clear reproduction of mid to high sound ranges with subtle nuances. While known as DJ headphones, these headphones are also suitable for professional use in studios. The HDJ-2000 DJ headphones offers an excellent fit with various ingenious details for comfortable use even in long sessions.

Excellent Durability And Toughness For Demanding Professional DJs

The durability of the DJ headphone plug and connecting parts joining the main body and the cable has been improved, achieving construction robust enough to withstand professional use. The removable Mini XLR connector also makes it easy to replace the cable if it breaks.

New I-Type Hinge Structure For Functionality And Design

With a new i-type hinge, a smooth and integral form has been achieved that naturally fits the hands at any moment during DJ play. The headphone’s ear pads have a spun finish aluminum ring that matches the design of Pioneer CDJ player play/cue buttons, for a simple and stylish design.

Sound Signature

Sound Staging & Imaging
Sound Staging and Imaging refers to the ability of a pair of headphones to create the placement of instruments and vocalists in a recording. A small sound stage is very difficult to determine where the instruments are in relation to the vocalists, everything sounds like it's coming from the same place. An extra large sound stage separates the instruments and vocalists so that you can clearly tell where each is on the sound stage.

Refers to the quality of a music note that distinguishes different types of sound production (voices, musical instruments, etc.).
Bass
Refers to the bass performance of the headphones. Rated from Light bass to extreme bass.
Bass Detail
How accurately a headphone can reproduce bass notes; a culmination of attack, speed, decay and clarity. Attack is how precisely it can begin a bass note without delay. Speed is the ability to continue to attack an array of bass notes without lagging. Decay is the length of time after a bass note ends that the sound is still heard. Clarity is how easily all bass frequencies are heard. It gives perception of loose, tight, or muddy bass.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Enclosed-Ear
Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Specifically For

Great headphones.

May 4, 2014

My husband has been DJ'ing electronic music for fun (mainly techno and tech house) for about 5 years now. His previous headphones were wearing out so I was looking for a new pair as a birthday gift. Discussions with other friends who DJ semi-professionally all recommended these headphones. The sound is crisp and clear and well-rounded - so much so that my husband would rather listen to the headphones when he's DJ'ing for me instead of the sound coming out of the speakers :) Some other reviews I'd read before purchasing these noted that the plastic joints have a tendency to break, but the ones I bought have been fine so far (granted it's only been in use for about a month). They are a little expensive but that is more a product of the Canada-US exchange rate.

Really easy purchase and fast delivery (about 1 week) from Sonic Electronix to Western Canada so I was very happy with that.

Great pair of headphones

January 9, 2013

I've owned these HDJ's for 6 months now, and I absolutely love them. I listen to all different types of music and use these constantly, and the sound quality is great. I bought these after my old Bose headphones broke, and these pioneers exceed in every category. With my previous pairs of around ear headphones after a couple hours I would have to take them off. With the HDJs I frequently wear them for multiple hours while studying and almost forget they're there. Construction is very sturdy, they're heavy duty and have shown no wear with folding them consistently. If you're looking for some headphones with excessive bass, get the beats because these don't have that feature. They have a crisp and clear sound quality, and can handle some power to them (could probably benefit from buying a headphone amplifier). These are on the higher end of the price spectrum for headphones, especially if you're like me and are not using them for DJing or sound processing, but don't let the DJ classification turn you away from personal use. If you're looking for a quality pair of headphones you won't be disappointed. It'll be tough to find these for a better price than Sonic. The only complaint I have as far as features is that I had to buy a hard case for these; for this price I think a hard shell case could be thrown in to protect them while carrying around. But for people who aren't carrying them around a lot it won't be a big deal, definitely not a reason to overlook the overall almost all positives with these headphones.

Well, I got these from sonicelectronix a month ago. Haven't owned any high range headphones before, but after listening to these, it has transformed the way how I listen to music now. These are really a great work of engineering in both build and sound quality.
Talking about dealing with sonicelectronix, it was good. Payment was fast and I got the cheapest deal on the internet (I spent one week finding that!). Another good thing was they delivered here in New Zealand. You won't believe how much they cost here...(that's 420USD!!).

Overall - I have to say well worth the money spent.
Value - They are like iphones, good resale value.
Look/Design - Very beautiful. The Pioneer Logo on the headband gives it a very professional look. Design is ergonomic.
Durability - Look durable but time will tell. Sturdy metal built, and i think Pioneer has tried to solve the problem of broken hinges in their newer production.
Features - Well the've got everything for the purpose they are meant for. Some people have said that it uses mini XLR port instead of the conventional one which is a monopoly tactic. Why? I think mini XLR holds the cable better than conventional one. In my opinion it also gives that audiophile factor to the output signal. But thats just me.
Ease of Use - Good. They got spring mechanism. Best thing is the earpads. Very comfortable as I had expected.

The only issue I have with these is that the cans are shallow. Your ears don't get enough room and sometimes they might touch the inner lining. Its a very minor issue though, you can always stuff little cotton beneath the earpads to create more room (as told on some headphone forum). This issue may be personal coz of my ear structure.
