A new sound-isolation chamber - inherited from the HDJ-1500s - aims to eliminate background noise when used either inside or outside the DJ booth. The ear pads have been made with soft faux leather for enhanced isolation, while a flexible polyamide resin headband delivers both a lightweight design and a secure fit. Both ear cups can be rotated 90-degrees in either direction and have rubber grips on the outside.

The HDJ-C70 headphones come supplied with two detachable, anti-tangle cords: 1.6m straight and 1m curled (3.0m when extended), as well as a carry pouch. The headband, housing, head cushion and ear pads can all be replaced too. The Pioneer HDJ-C70 DJ headphones will be available from October for £150.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
