Pioneer S E-MX9-T
03 for ageing ravers
US$225, amazon.com Listen to these wired cans alongside the Creative Aurvanas and you’ll notice the pay-off between wireless wizardry and sound quality. Pioneer’s 50mm, fully-closed drivers are sensational, serving up a huge soundscape with a taught, deep bass that helps justify the price.
Tuned for a “superior club sound” and based on the popular Pioneer HDJ-2000 DJ cans, the build and attention to detail is flawless. The solid aluminium ear plates and textured trim look seriously luxe without becoming trashy. Granted, we’ve worn comfier ’phones but we’re happy to suffer for sound like this.
