World famous DJ Armin van Buuren has teamed up with top electronics manufacturer Philips to create some new professional DJ headphones. The new A5-PRO DJ headphones have large 50mm drivers, genuine leather headband/cushions, detachable cables, and a closed-back folding and swivel design for easy storage and transport. The A5-PRO also comes with two different sized ear cushions for either an over-the-ear or on-the-ear style fit. These new headphones look like they will be great for professional DJ's, but without actually feeling the materials and the construction qualities, it may be a bit difficult to judge. We'll try to get a set in the lab for a full out video and written review... Until then, check out the official Armin van Buuren video on the new A5-PRO headphones.
2014 DJ Expo: Philips A5-Pro Headphones First Impressions [Video]
Philips had their brand new A5-Pro DJ headphones on hand at the 2014 Atlantic City DJ Expo and every DJ who used them was definitely impressed with the build quality, sound quality, and the isolation that these cans exhibit. The Philips A5-Pro were created in collaboration with World Famous DJ Armin Van Buuren and they look even better in person than they do in the pictures. Check out my first impressions video straight from the Expo floor to see my thoughts on the A5-Pro.
