Pioneer Electronics Unveils the HRM-7 Studio Headphones

January 23 2015, 04:00
The new Pioneer HRM-7 headphones incorporate a new HD driver for high-resolution audio sources, and features a “dual chamber” bass reflex enclosure to help produce lower bass response and provide better control for audio accuracy. The new HRM-7, along with new XDJ-RX headphones, previously announced, will be on display at the 2015 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.

Pioneer Electronics (USA) introduced the HRM-7 studio headphones intended for home and private studio listening. Pioneer’s latest headphones incorporate a newly developed HD driver suited for high-resolution audio sources and capable of reproducing frequencies up to 40 kHz. Its “dual chamber” bass reflex enclosure also helps produce lower bass response and provide better control for increased audio accuracy. The incorporated hybrid memory-foam ear pads provide a snug fit around the ears and maximum comfort when worn for extended listening sessions.

“We wanted to design studio headphones that feel as good as they sound,” said David Arevalo, director, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “The HRM-7 delivers rich and powerful sound ideal for a professional type of listening, whether at home or in a studio. These headphones have a natural response ideal for all types of music listening including high resolution audio.”
The large 400-mm HD driver combined with a copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coil and neodymium magnets built into the HRM-7 produce outstanding audio playback and great sound localization.The new HD driver along with its strong magnet structure can reproduce a wide frequency response from 5 Hz to 40 kHz, which is ideal for all types of music listening including high-resolution audio files.

Pioneer developed a dual-chamber bass reflex enclosure to enable the headphones to generate lower bass frequencies while still maintaining great control of the HD driver for increased audio accuracy. The sound isolating dual chamber (air chamber) prevents outside noise from affecting the enclosure, essentially increasing bass response while the integrated ports enhance the driver’s efficiency. The housing (enclosure) is further reinforced by a three-layer damping structure, suppressing vibrations and unwanted resonance, resulting in improved audio response from the HD driver.

The HRM-7’s housing creates a large listening chamber to produce a wide sound field for better sound localization. Wrapped around the housings are full-sized hybrid memory foam ear pads that feel comfortable, even when worn for long periods of time. The memory foam ear pads are covered with soft velour that contours around the ears to help reduce exterior sounds entering the listening chamber.

The 3-D ergonomic design further optimizes the angled fit of the ear pads around the head while the free adjust head cushion helps produce a snug fit without creating uncomfortable force. The HRM-7 is delivered with replacement velour ear pads, a detachable 1.2-m curled and 3-m straight cables using Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) wire, and a gold-plated 6.3 mm stereo plug adapter.
The Pioneer HRM-7 will be available in March 2015 with a suggested retail price of $239.
