Begin your DJ journey the right way with the new Pioneer HDJ-CUE1 DJ headphones. Pioneer DJ’s next-generation CUE1 headphones are available in four different models, inherit professional features from the flagship HDJ-X range and come with an affordable price tag.

HDJ-CUE1 headphones are perfect if you are getting into DJing. They feature a professional look and comfortable feel, whilst reproducing an incredibly rich sound, helping you beat match your songs together. The pro-quality sound will also aid in protecting your ears from harmful frequencies that are sometimes found on lower priced cans. Also, the foldable design and high-quality, robust finish make Pioneer’s most affordable pair of Headphones an excellent choice for anyone who is starting out, or on a budget.

HDJ CUE1 use the same audio driver as the professional HDJ-X5 model and are specially tuned to reproduce stable, precise low-end frequencies where the bass and kick drum sit within a dance track; this is essential for mixing and beat-matching. Excellent sound quality is imperative, so you, as a DJ, can hear all of the details clearly within your songs, allowing you to decide if a track is worthy enough to play at your next party. As a result, you know exactly what your friends are going to hear when you drop the track in your DJ set.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re practising a new scratch routine, performing a mix demo or just relaxing and listening to some tunes; comfort is essential so that you can focus on the music. To find the ideal fit, some DJs position their headphones on their head while others like to hang them around their neck. Either style works perfectly with the HDJ-CUE1 models, which are comfortable to use in both positions thanks to the convenient swivel mechanism and flexible, cushioned headband.

Pioneer has also launched five custom accessory packs (HC-CP08 - sold separately) that come in five different vibrant colours to help you express your unique style. You can choose one of the kits to customise your HDJ-CUE1’s by swapping the ear pads and the cable for the colour that suits your music style and personal taste.

If you’re looking to buy a great sounding pair of extremely durable headphones, that boast professional-grade features, with a dark silver finish for a high-quality look, and are perfect for the next-generation bedroom DJ, then look no further than the Pioneer HDJ-CUE1.

High-quality sound

Whether you’re DJing at a party or just relaxing listening to music at home or on the go, you will always be able to appreciate the clarity of your music - loud and clear. The DJ Headphones are expertly designed to make the most of the low frequencies of your music, and the HDJ-CUE1 model features dynamic drivers that reproduce crystal-clear sound. As well as feeling the precision in the low-end bass, you’ll also hear the clarity of the mid-range and high-end frequency sounds within your tracks, making the HDJ CUE1’s perfect for both general listening and Live DJ sets. This is essential for performing better mixes because you can adjust the EQ’s more effectively, get two tracks working in perfect harmony, and create a smoother blend.

Comfortable, professional design

HDJCUE1 DJ headphones have been specially designed to look and feel at home alongside Pioneer’s professional HDJ-X range. They are lightweight, portable and even fold up efficiently so you can conveniently fit them into your bag. And no matter what way you like to wear your DJ headphones, you will find a secure and comfy fit. CUE1’s feature a swivel mechanism so you can rotate the ear cups a full 90 degrees, this is great for DJs that prefer to listen with one ear while the other cup rests on the side or back their head or while the headphones are draped around your neck. The included short, coiled cable is lightweight and keeps things tidy, and is designed to stretch so you can move freely when playing music without worrying about breaking the wire.

Built to last

DJing frequently puts too much stress on headphones, and the Pioneer HDJ-CUE1 models have been expertly designed to handle heavy use. Every moving component has passed the stringent durability tests that Pioneer put all their headphones through. Robust metal sliders within the comfortable headband bring reliability and guarantee to prolong the life of your DJ headphones. The cable’s bayonet connector ensures that there are no accidental disconnections, while the L-type mini-jack at the other end of the cable means you won’t knock it out of place when plugged into your DJ gear. You can also detach the cable from the DJ headphones whenever you’re not using them, which prevents stress on the contacts.

Customisable look

Regardless of what model you decide on, you’ll be able to personalise your look by changing the cable and ear pads on your DJ headphones. The separately sold HC-CP08 accessory packs are available in 5 different colours, green, orange, yellow, blue, and pink. Each pack contains two replacement ear pads and a removable coiled cable.
