MUSIKMESSE 2016: Pioneer DJ has bolstered the HRM headphone family with two new models: HRM-6 and HRM-5.

Following on from the HRM-7 studio headphones, the HRM-6 phones feature the same 40mm HD drivers and frequency response (5Hz to 40kHz), whereas the HRM-5s offer up a slightly inferior 40mm driver and narrower frequency response of 5Hz to 30kHz.

While their compact design differs from the very large HRM-7s, they both still promise enough comfort for those long studio sessions. Both sets are foldable, lending them themselves for more all-round use.

The HRM-5 and HRM-6 studio monitor headphones will be available from mid June 2016, for €109 and €169 respectively and will come with a carry case and three different cable types. For more information check out the Pioneer DJ website.
