Pioneer DM40 Desktop Monitor Speakers Features
Front-Loaded Bass Reflex System
- Compact 2-way Desktop monitor speakers with 4-inch fiberglass woofer

4-inch fiberglass woofers output a strong, punchy bass from the front, while grooves on the ducts reduce air friction. This way you'll feel a tight bass kick even when the monitors are positioned against the wall.
3D Stereo Sound
The DM-40's 3/4-inch soft dome tweeters are fitted with DECO convex diffusers that channel high frequencies in every direction. So you’ll enjoy a wide sweet spot and 3D stereo sound wherever you sit or stand.
Class AB amplifiers deliver a crisp sound with low-distortion. Plus the tweeter and woofer are perfectly aligned to eliminate crossover and ensure a well-balanced response across the frequencies.
Pioneer DJ HDJ-X5 Headphone

By taking on board feedback from DJs and analyzing many different styles of monitoring, we’ve made sure our new DJ headphone range includes all the features needed for performing at every level. High-quality audio design is inherited from Pioneer’s previous professional DJ headphones, so you can enjoy distortion-free monitoring, even at high volumes, wherever you go.
The HDJ-X headphones are designed to be flexible. Their swivel mechanism allows you to wear them comfortably, whichever way you prefer, for long periods of time. No need to worry about bumps and knocks during transport as these DJ headphones can handle severe conditions and heavy use. They even cleared the US Military Standard Shock test.

Even on the road, your headphones will handle severe conditions and heavy use. Durable metal is used in the moving parts, enabling a strong construction that cleared even the US Military Standard Shock test.
These headphones are comfortable to use no matter how you wear them. The housing design reduces pressure on your head, while its outside texture enhances grip. To help you find the perfect fit, they also feature a flexible, durable headband and a flexible swivel.
Solid, refined design
All the HDJ-X headphones feature a refined look and durable construction. Choose from black or silver versions to complete your desired look.
