Key Features


The Pioneer DJ HDJ-X5 headphones inherit high-quality audio design from the HDJ-X7, HDJ-X10's, giving you clean monitoring even at high volumes.

The HDJ-X5 headphones feature a new 40-mm driver with copper-clad aluminium wire (CCAW) voice coils. The magnetic circuit is optimised and, thanks to fine noise suppression and elaborate tuning, you can enjoy clear, distortion-free sound for easy monitoring.

Whichever way you prefer to wear your headphones, you can comfortably use any HDJ-X model for long periods of time thanks to the flexible swivel mechanism and housing that have been designed with input from professional DJs. They’re built to be highly robust, too, with all models having cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test,4 as well as our stringent in-house durability tests.



Product Description

Outstanding sound

4-core twisted-structure cable
The independent ground wire in the 4-core twisted-structure cable gives superior left and right channel separation, improving sound quality. In addition, the HDJ-X10 model features a highly reliable, detachable mini-XLR connector for outstanding sound quality.

Bass reflex chamber
The bass reflex chamber in the upper housing ensures excellent bass response and sound insulation.

Superior durability

Rigorously tested
Take the HDJ-X model headphones on the road and feel confident they’ll handle severe conditions and heavy use. Each model has cleared the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Shock test, as well as our own demanding stress testing.  

Highly durable materials and construction
Durable metal is used in the moving parts of both the HDJ-X10 and the HDJ-X7 headphones to create a strong construction.

Water repellent nano coating
Keep your headphones looking fresh for longer. The polyurethane leather ear pads and headband cushion on the HDJ-X10 headphones are resistant to deterioration thanks to the use of nano coating, a world first for DJ headphones, so you can easily wipe off sweat and dirt.

Improved functionality

Suited for all monitoring styles
While we’re developing any new product we create numerous prototypes, each time with new improvements based on the feedback of professional DJs who test the equipment. Using this feedback and the results of our analysis of many different styles of monitoring, we’ve made sure the HDJ-X headphones are comfortable to use no matter how you wear them. The housing design reduces pressure on your head and it’s textured on the outside for enhanced grip, so you can quickly grab it and start listening.

Comfortable and flexible headband
To help you find the perfect fit, the HDJ-X headphones feature a flexible, durable headband. Passing our stringent test to open and close 20,000 times, it’s built to withstand intense use.  

Features inherited from HDJ-2000 models
As successors to the HDJ-2000 models, the HDJ-X headphones inherit popular professional features such as flexible swivels to enable comfortable monitoring however you wear them. The housing on the HDJ-X10 model incorporates an auto-return mechanism so the rotated housing automatically resets to its neutral position when you release it.

Other features

Replacement parts available
You can easily renew the detachable cables and ear pads on all HDJ-X headphones using replacement parts (available separately). Each model comes with its own cable and the HDJ-X7 and HDJ-X5 models have a mutually compatible bayonet connector, so you can purchase an alternative cable type if you prefer (available separately). Replacement ear pads for the HDJ-X10 and HDJ-X7 are available and either set can be fitted to any of the HDJ-X models, including the HDJ-X5.

Solid, refined design
All the HDJ-X headphones feature a refined look and durable construction. The HDJ-X10 and HDJ-X7 models are finished in a metallic design incorporating aluminium spin processing and diamond cutting to the housings, which shine under club and stage lighting. Choose from black or silver versions to complete your desired look.

Excellent portability
When you’re travelling to gigs, you can be confident your HDJ-X10 headphones will be well protected in the included flat carry case. Made from strong materials to protect your headphones from bumps and knocks on flights and in transit, the case has inner pockets for storing accessories such as USB devices and SD cards, and its handle makes carrying easy. The HDJ-X7 and HDJ-X5 both come with a compact carry pouch, which snugly fits around the folded headphones to save space in your luggage and reduce the risk of damage on the road.

Various accessories included
The HDJ-X10 and HDJ-X7 headphones come with two detachable cables: a 1.2 m coiled cable (approximately 3.0 m when extended) and a 1.6 m straight cable. The HDJ-X5 model comes with a 1.2 m short coiled cable (approximately 1.8 m when extended) that’s ideal for both DJ performances and everyday listening. An L-type mini-jack prevents the connection from being knocked or accidentally disconnected during performances, even in cramped booths.

2-year warranty
To guarantee long-term, reliable performance, we include a 2-year warranty with all HDJ-X model headphones.

Pioneer HDJ-X5 Headphones - Replacement of faulty product
The product was actually a replacement (HDJ-X5 Headphones) for and old latent defect which I found out about on the pioneer dj website. If you own these make sure you check pioneer DJ website in relation to the defect. djkit.com were great, they arranged for the replacement new product, with no issues, after nearly a year of me having it. The service was great, friendly and fast. Well done djkit.com...! :-)

Test audit
A truly excellent piece of kit from Pioneer. At the midrange in the Pioneer DJ headphones line, but with the option of Bluetooth, these work exceptionally well for both mixing and pleasure. The removable cable is sturdy and long enough for use with your decks, and the sound quality better than expected for the middle band, bringing out the bass and with enough volume to hear what you need in the club. Plus they sit comfortably too. It's always a toss up between Sennheiser and Pioneer for me when it comes to DJ headphones. For the price abs the quality and what I need them to do, with the added Bluetooth option, the Pioneer HDJ-CUEs are exceptional. And the speedy and reliable service from djkit.com is some of the best customer service I've had hands down.

Great quality for the price and excellent retailer!
Highly recommend headphones and retailer!! Love these headphones, feel well made, all the joints and connectors etc are nice and solid. Also comes in good sturdy box with cloth bag to put em in. Sound quality is great although obvs not the best but for half the price of some pioneer headphones they're much better than half as good!! Only gripe is that the metal looking ring around each ear bit is just a chrome coated black plastic so mine has worn off anywhere I've touched in only 2 weeks with very light use! Although a bit shit, it doesn't alter the overall sound and build quality so can't take a star of for that! djkit.com.com we're awesome, quick and very helpful!! Would recommend both headphones and retailer.

Fantastic sound quality. Earcups are a bit smaller than my old Beats Studio so if you have big ears, not for you as it may br uncomfortable if used for long hours. Other than that, 5*

I was long overdue a headphones upgrade and after buying these why did I wait so long! The clarity is unreal from both the top end and low end. Super comfortable to wear and I really like the screw jack adapter that comes with them so you do not leave the 3.5 to 6.5 behind! Super stylish packaging as well

......You see, you get what you pay for.
Yes, they sound pretty good. They also look good. However.... However..... They are a plastic assembly, and need some love. Mine broke in five weeks, used exactly 7 times. Left side cracked, and that meant the right ear was disconnected. So, a great headphone, but I'm back to a fresh pair of Sennheisers.... From djkit.com again, of course!

Thumbs up, generally.
First time I've splashed out on cans. Impressed with how they shut out exterior noise. Coiled lead is good although the fancy packaging is unnecessary I'd rather save a fiver and not have it. They fold up nicely & the bag is useful.
