The following specifications offer a closer look into the HDJ 2000MK2 Headphones.

1) Sound Quality Perfected for DJ Monitoring

The Headphones have been built specifically for Dance music. It has a 38 micrometre thick diaphragm, 50 mm driver, and precision rolled voice coil to result in superior resolution and high fidelity frequency response of 5 Hz to 30,000 Hz. Even when the volume is really high, there is barely any sign of distortion courtesy of the robust build and 3,500 mW capacity of input.

2) Enhanced Sound Isolation for Better Clarity in Loud Environments

The low air volume chambers that were mentioned before are perfect for maximizing insulation. As a result, the external noise is decreased in the mid to low frequencies (300 Hz to 1,600 Hz) by 7 dB compared to the original HDJ 2000s. When this technology is coupled with the ear pad’s exquisite design that has damper and airtight stitching, the ease-of-monitoring is drastically increased. There’s no need to raise the volume in loud clubs.

3) Lightweight and Comfortable Design for Extensive Usage

The design of the HDJ 2000MK2 revolves around the comfort of the DJs. If there’s anything that you can expect from these headphones it’s that it will never be a disturbance in your ears. It is built with a thinner, lightweight magnesium alloy that can be found on the headband and hanger. The purpose of this alloy is to lower the pressure on the DJ’s head. At the same time, you have comfy ear pads made of soft synthetic leather and low rebound urethane memory foam that makes sure that you enjoy ultimate comfort and sound quality.

4) Hard Carry Case and Utility Accessories

The custom designed hard zip up carry case will be a much coveted asset for the DJs. Not only does it make the headphones appear better, but it also provides extra protection especially when the DJs are on the road. The case has internal pockets that can be used to store two provided cables and the jack.
