Hercules Unveils HDP DJ-Adv G401, Headphones Designed For DJ And Music Enthusiasts

Hercules completes its line of headphones announced last Christmas with the stylish and comfortable HDP DJ-Adv G401 model headphones

New York - September 27, 2012- Hercules, the leader in mobile DJ controllers for PC/Mac® and computer audio expert, is proud to announce its latest model headphones, the HDP DJ-Adv G401. The new stylish and comfortable model, designed for amateur DJs, completes the line of headphones unveiled by Hercules last Christmas.

The HDP DJ-Adv G401 headphones feature all of the ingredients required to meet the demands of DJs and music enthusiasts, including perfect audio fidelity, pleasant and powerful sound, flawless sound insulation and comfort.

Stylish and trendy, the HDP DJ-Adv G401 headphones feature a mechanical design very similar to Hercules’ professional models, the HDP DJ-Pro M1001 and the HDP DJ-Adv G501. The HDP DJ-Adv G401 circumaural closed-back headphones’ silhouette traces a continuous curve from one earpiece to the other, avoiding pressure on the user’s head, while at the same time perfectly shielding the DJ from external sounds.

Suited for both large and smaller heads, the headphones cause no strain, even during prolonged use. The earpieces rotate around three axes, enabling DJs to preview their mix with one ear or fold the headphones away for convenient storage and transport.

Also designed for previewing and mixing, the HDP DJ-Adv G401 offers a frequency response ranging from 15 Hz to 22 kHz - an audio spectrum wide enough to gauge tracks precisely and hone last-second settings before airing the music to the audience. The 50 mm diameter drivers produce clear sounds, with precise and deep bass, making them not only ideal for analyzing rhythms, but also for simply enjoying music.

Their low impedance (32 ohms) and high sensitivity (100 dB @ 1 mW) ensure powerful sound levels, enabling DJs to listen to tracks even in the loudest environments - for instance, next to PA system speakers. 

The Hercules HDP DJ-Adv G401 will be available late October 2012, at a suggested retail price of $79.99.

Hercules unveils its new creations: a line of headphones for DJs

Style, professional sound quality and extended listening comfort.

New York, November 9, 2011 - Hercules, leader in mobile DJing controllers for computers, recently announced that it would be extending its DJ range to include monitoring speakers. Today, Hercules is proud to unveil its latest creations: a line of headphones designed for DJs.
 
Drawing on its 20 years of audio expertise, the Hercules team is bringing a fresh new personality to the world of DJ headphones by combining professional sound quality and ergonomic design with the comfort demanded by exacting users, whether DJing at home, in the studio or performing live sets.

HDP DJ-Pro M1001: Professional sound and long-wearing comfort

With their stylized design, the HDP DJ-Pro M1001 headphones are perfect for semiprofessional and professional DJs. They usher in Hercules’ signature design featuring a continuous arc from one earpiece to the other, to avoid pressure on the user’s head, while at the same time perfectly shielding the DJ from external sounds. Additionally, their large ear-cups feature the same distinctive relief found on the jog wheels of Hercules’ range of DJ controllers.

With their black color emphasized by blue stripes, the headphones’ provide a stylish, sleek look that has been designed with all head sizes in mind.

Designed for previewing tracks, the HDP DJ-Pro M1001 headphones allow DJs to precisely analyze sounds, thanks to their 5 Hz to 30 kHz frequency range - a very wide audio spectrum, allowing the wearer to hear a precise rendering of their audio tracks, and thereby optimize the different settings before playing the mix for the audience.

The headphone drivers are 50 mm in diameter, guaranteeing the clear sound and deep bass response that DJs expect. Their low impedance (32 ohms) and sensitivity of 107 dB at 1mW provide a powerful audio level which does away with the risk of being overpowered by PA system speakers.

The ear components pivot along 3 axes of rotation: each ear-cup swivels vertically about its hinge by 180°, while the hinge swivels 90° horizontally and toward the inside of the headphones by 120°, providing great flexibility for DJs carrying out one-ear monitoring.
This mechanism also allows for the headphones to be folded and easily transported in their carry bag. Their cable, which measures 3 m in length when extended, can be connected to the left ear-cup for right-handed DJs, or to the right ear-cup for left-handed users.
The large, soft ear pads perfectly cover the shape of the user’s ears, completely shielding the DJ from ambient noise.
Particular attention was paid to comfort when developing the headphones’ structure, this being essential for extended audio previewing sessions.

The Hercules HDP DJ Pro M1001 headphones will be available from late November 2011, at a suggested retail price of $169.99 .

HDP DJ-Adv G501: Style and listening comfort for all DJs
 

Because style and comfort are not just for professional DJs, Hercules has created the HDP DJ-Adv G501 headphones. Designed for both advanced and amateur DJs, they provide high-quality sound reproduction and excellent listening comfort. Sporting a shape similar to the professional HDP DJ-Pro M1001 version, the HDP DJ-Adv G501 model is distinguished by its black lacquer finish and green highlighting elements.
Its pivoting ear components (with 3 axes of rotation) let the wearer preview tracks with just one ear, and allow for easy folding and transportation.
 
Designed for precise audio reproduction, allowing DJs to effectively prepare their mixes, this new model of headphones has an impedance of 32 ohms and sensitivity of 102 dB at 1mW providing a strong audio level, 50 mm diameter drivers with accurate bass response, and a 10 Hz to 25 kHz frequency range.

The HDP DJ Adv-G501 headphones will be available from late November 2011, at a suggested retail price of $129.99.

HDP DJ M40.1: The solution designed for all users

Last but not least, Hercules has created a third model for all mixing fans: HDP DJ M40.1. The headphones’ DJ look and two axes of rotation for ear components (ear-cup 180° vertical rotation and 120° hinge rotation toward the inside) will appeal to a large number of users.
 
Their sensitivity of 95 dB at 1mW and 50 mm diameter drivers provide clear, pure sound: perfect for mixing sessions at home, and also for listening to an MP3 player or other audio device without bothering those around you.

They will be available from late November 2011, at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
