Pioneer HDJ-500

Pioneer announce the new entry level headphones for DJs will be available this November.
The retail price is $125 USD and is designed for "exceptional fidelity, style, comfort and affordability" according to the press release. They come in three colors: Red/Black, Black/metal and White.

These headphones have taken some of the best structural components from HDJ-2000. Like the magnesium alloy for better structural integrity. Which is fancy for saying they can take a hell of a beating.
I use the HDJ-2000 and what I'm most satesfied by is the padding on the ears. They use the same stuff for HDJ-500 as in the HDJ-2000. Some fancy stuff called Urethane. They also include the detatchable cord with the mini XLR connector.

You will be able to rotate the right earpiece 60 degrees both ways.

The black HDJ-500-K and the red HDJ-500-R will be available in November 2010 at a manufacturer suggested retail price of $125. The white HDJ-500-W will be available in January 2011.
