When the initial, they developed an instantaneous market for DJ-style earphones and star recommendations alike. While Leader’s HDJ-CUE1 variety does not have a star tie-in and it does not appear like a , it is beautifully priced. However is it a “DJ earphone” as Leader claims?
The HDJ-CUE1 is a variety of on-ear earphones, and Leader states the designs utilize the very same chauffeurs as the HDJ-X5 over-ear design and “emphasize essential low bass and kick drum frequencies for blending.” The variety uses a soft, professional appearance with a collapsible style that lets the user turn both earcups a complete 90 degrees. Much like the DJs do, however you can wager Tiësto isn’t utilizing $70 on-ear earphones on phase.
Costs begin at $69 per set for the wired HDJ-CUE1 in dark silver surface, while the Bluetooth variation HDJ-CUE1BT is offered for $99 per set (in an option of matte black, matte white or matte red). The earphones can be supplemented by a $30 device pack that consists of replacement earpads and a coiled cable television in an option of orange, yellow, green, blue or violet.
Leader states the play time on the Bluetooth design is roughly 30 hours on a two-hour charge. The locking cable television on this more costly variation disables the Bluetooth, the microphone and volume buttons.
The earphones are plastic and not extremely adjustable fit-wise. Yet even with my bigger noggin I didn’t discover them unpleasant.
I listened to a set of the HDJ-CUE1BT in both wired and cordless mode and discovered them to be as bass-forward as I ‘d get out of DJ earphones. They were finest matched to the ’80s dance flooring beats of Tame Impala’s Borderline or the slam of Gorillaz’s Feel Good Inc. The tune I discovered them most excellent with was Beta Band’s Life– at 2.20 the tune ends with a super-deep synth bass, however unlike with some earphones and speakers I have actually heard, each each note was dipped into an equivalent volume and without distortion.
The HDJ-CUE1BT provided enough existence to make vocals pop, even if there wasn’t much that much treble coming through. When plugged in the sound ended up being flatter; the bass prominence was still there, however the midrange shimmer was gone.
Leader understands that “severe” DJs aren’t going to be utilizing these on the dance flooring, however if you desire an appealing set of budget plan earphones that can do deep bass well, then these deserve examining.
