Pioneer launches two new on-ear headband headphones, the SE-MJ591 audiophile headphone for critical listening and the SE-NC21M noise-cancelling headphone. Both models are lightweight and foldable and come with a carrying case for on-the-go convenience.
Designed for highly accurate sound reproduction across the entire spectrum, the Pioneer SE-MJ591 is equipped with new 40mm drivers, high-quality construction with metal components, and ultra-soft ear pads and headband for the listening comfort. According to Pioneer, the SE-MJ591 is intended to match the sound quality of high-end audio systems. It is priced at $299 and will be released in April.
The SE-NC21M, on the other hand, is an on-ear noise-cancelling headphones that can reduce up to 90% (measured at 300 hz) of ambient noise, ideal for noisy environments such as airplanes and public places. A single AAA battery can provide up to 120 hours of noise cancellation, and it will continue to function as traditional headphones if the battery dies mid-use. The Pioneer SE-NC21M will be available in May for $119.
