Cleer Spotlights DJ-Series Premium Headphone BOOTH 73267 New headphone and electronics brand Cleer is showing its DJ-series headphones that are designed, voiced and built to deliver a studio recording and mastering-grade performance. The Cleer DJ headphone features 50mm neodymium drivers and innovative sound- reproduction technology to deliver true powerful bass and high performance audio, even at low volume levels. Likewise, its full-size ear cups feature superior passive noise isolation that minimizes sound leakage for studio monitoring and live DJ performances. The DJ headphones use magnesium alloy on the ear cup, which is extremely rigid but yet lightweight. The build- quality and comfort attributes are of luxury scale with its foldable design and patent- pending locking adjustable hinge that reduces typical clamping force to better f t your head with maximum comfort even after long hours of wearing. The soft leather ear pads and adjustable headband are made of artif cial protein with the same look, feel and softness as premium-grade leather. In applications where more than one user needs to hear the mix, the DJ headphone is up to the task with its dual audio jacks input that enables sharing by simply connecting an audio cable from one audio jack to a second headphone set. A Stereo/Mono switch is built-in. While DJ uses a single ear to monitor audio mixing and another side to listen to the live playback, mono sound provides distinct critical listening benef ts as the audio is folded into a single channel, permitting every musical note and vocal elements to be heard and not missed.
