Summary: Great headphones, sound quality is top notch. However, the left ear sound, nearest to the jack, was slightly dull upon purchase. It has now got to the point where the sound is almost inaudable and the headphones are useless for anything but one ear monitoring. My advice would be to go for Sennheiser HD205II's or HD25 CII's.
Wonderful sound...and fit. Shame the plastic head band snapped off after a few months!

Summary: I really loved the sound on these. Nice, well balanced sound. The fit was also nice and it does look pretty cool too! Little details like the replaceable headphone cables (with coiled or straight cords) and so on made this a good choice. However, after a few months of use, the plastic headband snapped into row, and thus rendered the unit useless. There is no way to fix this, as Pioneer say that this "wear and tear" and that's the end of that.
Excerpt: I for one month, just in a hurry because I broke another, but it will clear quickly! I tried and owned many headphones, either low-end or high-end, and issue sound quality, Sennheiser some 20 or 30 €, even without being clear, are more pleasant to listen ...

Summary: My mum bought me a set of HDJ500's for my birthday that didnt leave my bedroom, one day while mixing the earcup that swivels fell off. I contacted pioneer as I thought the one year warranty was with them. They advised to contact the reseller, the reseller advised they would need to contact pioneer. Pioneer sent them an email advising to return the item to them and they would replace the set which the seller replaces for me.
Summary: Tengo unos comprados hace tres meses, no han salido de mi casa, y solo los utilizo en el despacho. La diadema está completamente llena de grietas, dentro de poco acabaran por romperse. El servicio tecnico dice que no se hace cargo. No quiero saber nada de pioneer en lo sucesivo.
