The Pioneer DJ HDJ-X5BT headphones can be used in both the DJ booth for monitoring and for normal everyday use with the Bluetooth wireless capability. While they come in at an excellent price point, they lack the durability of true professional headphones that some DJ's need.
The Pioneer HDJ-X5BT headphones are available in three different color variations—white, black, and red—and come bundled with a USB charging cable and a coiled cable for DJ use. The Bluetooth battery lasts for a full 20 hours on a three-hour charge. Once the battery is depleted, users can use the coiled cable to keep the music playing in passive mode.
The Pioneer HDJ-X5BT have an over-the-ear design, which is great for isolation and low leakage.
