PIONEER INTRODUCES AFFORDABLE HI-RES IN-EAR HEADPHONES
Pioneer have always been at the forefront of technology, developing and innovating new products. Their new CH Series introduces two in-ear headphones with a ultra-wide frequency response they say are perfect for today's hi-res audio formats.
With a frequency range of 8 Hz-45 kHz (SE-CH5T) and 5 Hz-50 kHz (SE-CH9T), Pioneer have developed this series specifically for use with smartphones and Hi-Res Audio players, such as the XDP-30R and XDP-300R (reviews in progress).
Pioneer says that its newly designed 9.7mm driver provides optimal sound reproduction of high-resolution music material and is supported by the exclusive Airflow Control Port, which additionally increases the sound definition in the medium and low frequency range.
For use on-the-go, Pioneer have spec'd a braided over-ear cable design ensuring reliability while also allowing optimal comfort. Noise interferences caused by movements of the cable have also been minimised.
Both the SE-CH5T ($99 RRP) and the SE-CH9T ($199 RRP) feature the 9.7mm Driver and Airflow Control Port, an inline remote control and microphone (call answer/end function). The SE-CH5T has a frequency response of 8Hz - 45kHz, while the SE-CH9T boasts a 5Hz-50kHz frequency response.
The SE-CH9T also features a double-layered metal structure featuring a brass nozzle and aluminium sleeve to eliminate resonances and vibrations, and detachable cables with MMCX connectors.
