Pioneer HDJ-2000 DJ Closed-Back Over-Ears for $219

It’s DJ time on the internets, because we have another DJ headphone, it is the black color scheme of the Pioneer HDJ-2000 (closed-back, 50mm drivers, over-ears) going for a limited time for $219 with free 3-day shipping from authorized dealer Adorama.com.

PS: a “DJ headphone” is (or has become) a bit of a nebulous description. The original thought behind the term was for headphones that are designed for use by DJs while DJing (verb). Over time, marketing took over the term, so now a DJ headphone is not just one that has features that might be useful to a DJ (closed-back, swiveling earcups, one-ear listening, folding, isolation, cable flexibility, etc), but it is also a style – pandora’s box has been opened. This is a general purpose comment, not meant for this particular headphone specifically.
