Armin van Buuren and Philips unveil the ear-happy A5-PRO professional DJ Headphones
The world loves Armin van Buuren and Armin van Buuren loves Philips! The world-renowned Dutch music producer and DJ who has set many a foot tapping has joined hands with electronics manufacturer Philips to unleash the A5-PRO professional DJ Headphones. As expected, these headphones are high-definition and are aimed at professionals and audiophiles who’re ever-craving for perfect sound. The headphones were specifically designed by Armin to meet his needs and pack 50mm high-definition neodymium drivers. This enables the A5-PRO headphones to deliver high quality low-frequency sounds.
The headphones are built for 3500mW max high power handling and sport an acoustic close back architecture. Dual sided locking cable inputs and the 90 degree swivel ear-shell work to benefit the user. The headband is fashioned from genuine leather and the entire headphone can be folded and tucked away, without taking up too much space. This ability to fold makes the A5-PRO headphones a perfect tool for a globe-trotting DJ. This isn’t the first brainchild of Armin van Buuren and Philips’ collaboration. Previously, the two together revealed the Philips M1X-DJ sound system, a pretty cool system that enables amateurs and professionals alike to mix, play and share music quickly and without a hitch. Pricing and availability details of the A5-PRO hasn’t been announced yet.
