MESSE07: Headphones For DJs

Allen & Heath has launched the XD-53 professional monitoring headphones, designed to complement their Xone DJ mixers.
The XD-53’s incorporate a circumaural isolation design, providing high level isolation from ambient noise, which, say A&H, make them the ideal product for DJ’s requiring immersive listening in loud environments.
XD-53 headphones have 53mm diameter drivers - the largest drivers currently available – with high power neodymium magnet design, 1500 mW of power handling, and high SPL capacity. They also have rotating earpieces for easy one-ear monitoring, a coiled cable with convenient one-side exit, and a folding design for compact portability.
Head of Xone design, Andy Rigby-Jones, told us, “The Xone range of DJ mixers has a staunchly loyal following and many customers were asking if we could design headphones to complement their audiophile set up. We’ve bought the same design ethos to the XD-53 headphones as we use for our mixers - they sound fantastic with tons of power, and a sturdy construction.�
