Pioneer, known for their DJ-friendly headphones and reference headsets, just released two new high resolution earbuds for 2017. Meet Pioneer SE-CH9T and Pioneer SE-CH5T-K.
New Release Pioneer SE-CH9T and Pioneer SE-CH5T-K, Hi-Res Earbuds
Both earphones are designed to be portable and affordable while offering sound that is rich and full of detail. These two models are ergonomically-shaped to fit in the conch of your ear and feature MMCX connections for easy transport, storage, and protection against premature wear and tear. In addition, both cables are of a tangle-resistant braided design with gold-plated 3.5 mm headphone jacks. To note, the cables are made to be worn in an over-the-ear hook design.
When it comes to sound, both the Pioneer SE-CH9T and Pioneer SE-CH5T sound like they are both engineered to prove the best in audio. They both posses a patent pending Airflow Control Port which is basically an internal tube that adjusts low frequency sound pressure to provide improved tonal balance, tight bass, and clear mid-range frequencies. It’s wide-nozzle opening allows sound to be directed at the eardrum, subsequently eliminating issues with the short wavelengths of higher frequencies cancelling each other out. Voila! More depth, clarity, and overall better sound experience of music.
The Pioneer SE-CH9T takes aesthetics and audio quality one step further with a sleek-looking chassis that is just as functional as it is pretty. The patent-pending two-layer brass and aluminum housing that is said to eliminate excess vibrations by absorbing them. This should result in cleaner mids and highs, while giving the low end a tight and energetic response. I like the sound of that! And while the Pioneer SE-CH9T isn’t a sports bud, the addition of patent pending Connector Shield technology leads me to believe these babies can hold their own at the gym. This technology is actually a means of stabilizing the MMCX connector on each housing while simultaneously reducing strain on the connection and limiting the the ingress of rain or other liquids that can corrode the connector – basically gym ready!
The Pioneer SE-CH9T and Pioneer SE-CH5T both run on an impedance of 26 ohms. The headphones reach a frequency response of 5 Hz – 50 kHz and 8 Hz–45 kHz, respectively.
