Pioneer HDJ-1500 Professional DJ Headphones

The something to hold while spinning a turntable? Pioneer’s HDJ-1500 ($209) could be that thing, if you’d give it a friggin’ chance for once. Pioneer’s new DJ Headphones are for pros, and to be clear I don’t mean prostitutes. Prostitutes are more than welcome to buy them; Pioneer is not prejudiced. Modern courtesans would especially appreciate the sound balance that the HDJ-1500 provides, and the stylish soundproof ear chamber. For the tech-savvy hookers, frequency ranges from 5 Hertz to 30,000 Hz, 32 ohm impedance, and other jargon. Not that I would know anything about prostitutes, who’s asking?  But seriously, prostitution is a victimless crime.

Pioneer RMX1000 Remix Station

Using the RMX1000 Remix Station, you have the power to ostensibly cry out “THIS IS THE REMIX” with virtually every song ever. The RMX 1000 is comprised of input and output RCA and quarter-inch plugs, a USB port, and a plethora of knobs and flashing buttons. Think of it as a “My First Music Mixer”. Make an entire song of out of drops to confuse and frighten all the dubstep fans using the Remixbox software. The included SD card makes your sickest mixes portable, and the four canned effects settings ensures your beats always come out smelling fresh.

Limited White Edition Pioneer CDJ-2000 & DJM-900Nexus

While the term “Disc Jockey” seems likely to pop up in the “Ancient Things for 100, Alex” category, DJ equipment is sitting on tech’s cutting edge these days. For example, the Limited Edition Pioneer CDJ-2000 media player and DJM-900nexus mixer are “limited” due to the pretty pearl white color, but your music-making options are anything but limited with these on the table. The CDJ-2000 ($2150) features playback from CD, DVD, USB storage devices (flash and hard drives) and SD cards; 6.1-inch full-color LCD display; and Pioneer’s PRO DJ LINK, enabling multiple digital players to be connected for sharing music files stored on a single USB device and SD card. Starting in February, just 1,000 units of the CDJ-2000 and 500 units of the DJM-900nexus will be produced. Each mixer and player will come with a distinctive plaque engraved with the serial number to indicate its authenticity.
