along with unboxing and first impression videos. Now those same headphones are being updated by Pioneer to also add Hands-Free Cell phone operation. Introducing the Pioneer HDJ-500T-K headphones that will come with a coiled cord for DJ purposes and a straight cord with an integrated microphone than allows users to answer incomoing calls when connected to a smartphone with the touch of a button. It seems to me like this may be a great idea. I personally have been using the HDJ-500's as my travel companion and all of my music and games are currently stored on my Blackberry which I use them to listen with. I could definitely use this new functionality for my plane trips and for all around MP3/Cell phone use as I wouldn't have to remove the headphones for different Blackberry activities. I have always been a fan of over-the-ear style headphones for all my listening needs and the HDJ line are very comfortable through extended periods of use. I'll try to get my hands on a set when they come out and let you all know if the upgrades are worth the additional cost. Right now the MSRP is listed at $145, but I expect retailers to come in slightly cheaper when it finally launches this month in May 2011. Details and Press Release below.
