The company's latest headphones have been detailed.
Pioneer has announced the release of its newest audio product. The SE-MHR5 Hi-Res Stereo Headphones will be available for purchase next month for a suggested retail price of $300.
The SE-MHR5 headphones feature a large 40mm driver with a wide range 7Hz-50,000Hz frequency response and memory foam urethane cushions for added comfort. In addition, the headphones use a lightweight Copper Clad Aluminum Wire voice coil which allows for crystal clear, hi-res audio throughout the frequency range and a dual baffle back chamber to control the balance between the mid and low frequencies while also offering noise isolation. A dual folding design is integrated as well for added portability. Likewise, the headphones include a standard 3.5mm unbalanced cable and a 2.5mm/4-pole balance cable for greater separation between the left and right channels. Impedance is listed at 45 Ω; Maximum Input Power is listed at 1,000 mW; and Sensitivity is listed at 102 dB/mW.
Pioneer's SE-MHR5 Hi-Res Stereo Headphones will be on display at the SoCal CanJam, a consumer event for AV fans and audiophiles being held on March 19-20. The company also recently announced two new Elite Receivers and previously detailed the XDP-100R Digital Audio Player ($700), the SX-N30 Network Stereo Receiver ($600), and the SE-MASTER1 Headphones ($2,500) back at CES in January. The SE-MASTER1 Headphones are handcrafted, reference-grade headphones with 50 mm driver units with a 25 µm aluminum diaphragm finished with a Parker Ceramic Coating. In addition, the headphones support high-resolution audio of up to 85.000 Hz. Likewise, the floating structure design offers low distortion and concise sound separation while the 3.5mm-thick aluminum alloy housing minimizes resonance from the driver units to provide accurate sound.
