Pioneer Launch New SE-MHR5 Headphones

Pioneer se-

Pioneer has announced the launch of its SE-MHR5 headphone – a revolutionary addition to its Pure Audio headphone range that also features its range-topping renowned SE-Master 1 model. Featuring a closed back design with a folding mechanism for easy portability, the SE-MHR5 is the perfect headphone for those that demand high-quality audio performance and comfort on the go.

Available in the UK, the SE-MHR5 is finished in black and has a UK SRP of £199.99.

Key Features of the SE-MHR5 Include:

  • Closed back dynamic design for noise isolation
  • Dedicated 40mm drivers producing 7Hz to 50kHz wide frequency range and high power with excellent linearity and clarity
  • Ported driver housing for increased bass quality
  • Foldable design allows for simple storage within the supplied carry case
  • 2 x cables supplied – standard and balanced – both fitted with 3.5mm stereo plug
  • Stylish yet understated craftsmanship

The SE-MHR5 is a the latest member of Pioneer’s Pure Audio range, with dedicated 40mm drivers with CCAW (Copper Clad Aluminium Wire) high-power voice coils deliver a wide response from 7kH up to 50kHz, delivering an accurate performance across the entire frequency range.  Each driver sits within its own-ported driver housing, allowing bass to naturally breath and utilise external air to increase performance whilst the dual chamber construction helps increase isolation – both for the user and the outside world.

Long-term comfort for any pair of headphones is crucial and it’s good to see the SE-MHR5’s are fitted with faux leather covered low-repulsion cushion foam for both its ear pads and head band, which provides both a soft fit and enough pressure for good isolation.

Special attention has been paid to the SE-MHR5’s input terminal, which is isolated from the right driver housing for improved consistency between both drivers.  Two cables are supplied: a balanced cable for improved separation when using a compatible headphone amplifier and a standard cable for conventional use.  Both cables have 3.5mm right-angled plugs with rugged surrounds. A sleek carry case is also included, for added protection and portability.With its dynamic closed-back design and folding mechanism, the SE-MHR5 is ideal for users on the go and the everyday commute. Whilst retaining its precision, the headphones leak minimal sound – making it perfect for use in public.
The SE-MHR5 headphones have been engineered, designed and hand crafted purely for listening. Producing deep bass and clear tones, they are the perfect companion for any audiophile on the go.
