Start Your Own Hi-Res Audio Tradition.

  • Make a telepathic connection to music with the SE-MONITOR5. As a fully-enclosed dynamic stereo headphone that provides an excellent listening environment, focus is placed on faithful reproduction of Hi-Res Audio formats. Yet Pioneer has voiced them to convey music’s emotional intent for a listening experience that moves mind and soul. Achieving this meant exploring new driver materials, innovating structures that limit resonance, and introducing proven technologies unveiled with our SE-MASTER1 flagship. Blending time-tested approaches with the latest in materials science, these headphones let music unfurl over a vast soundstage with localization, detail, and control that’s captivating. Shipping with balanced and unbalanced cords, the SE-MONITOR5 presents a unique opportunity to reignite your passion for music in comfort and style.

Cellulose Nano-Fiber Elevates the Hi-Res Audio Experience.

  • Cellulose Nano-Fiber is made from wood-derived fiber (pulp) that has been defibrinated to the nano level of several hundredths of a micron and smaller, resulting in cellulose material that’s five times stronger and one-fifth lighter than iron.Cellulose Nano-Fiber has requisite stiffness to extend high-frequency response in excess of Hi-Res Audio bandwidths for harmonically unblemished sound. Its organic composition absorbs minute resonances for faithful source reproduction, sounding particularly Cellulose Nano-Fiber is made from wood-derived fiber (pulp) that has been defibrinated to the nano level of several hundredths of a micron and smaller, resulting in cellulose material that’s five times stronger and one-fifth lighter than iron.Cellulose Nano-Fiber has requisite stiffness to extend high-frequency response in excess of Hi-Res Audio bandwidths for harmonically unblemished sound.

Magnesium Alloy Base and Housing.

  • To capitalize on the high performance offered by the newly developed driver, Pioneer selected magnesium alloy not only for the base, but also for the housing. The highly rigid material suppresses vibration that generates interference and distortion, particularly from deep bass notes at high volume.

Double Chamber Construction with Ports and Unique Diffuser.

  • Headphone housings are made wide to expand main chamber volume and allow for a thicker housing mold, taming resonance. Main chambers have unique sculpted diffusers that disperse sound pressure into ported sub-chambers relieved by vents. The patented design reduces sound pressure level behind the driver to assure taut, clean, well-defined bass. Further, the system attenuates sound leakage.

Full Basket System &F loating Structure.

  • Harnessing the same construction techniques used for the SE-MASTER1, the SE-MONITOR5 features a Full Basket System to facilitate energetic sound reproduction and suppress unwanted resonance. A magnesium alloy part firmly secures the driver assembly to magnesium alloy base with screws, not glue, as is common with other headphones.The SE-MONITOR5 benefits from the same floating base structure developed for the SE-MASTER1 flagship. The entire base assembly floats on rubber insulators to prevent L/R channel interference.

Support for Balanced and Unbalanced Audio Supplied with Two Pairs of Premium Earpads.

  • Three cords are included: two unbalanced bi-wire cords featuring standard 3.5 mm (1/8˝ ) stereo connectors, and one balanced audio cord with a 2.5 mm (3/32˝ ) 4-pole stereo plug to suit compatible DAPs. Experience enhanced stereo separation and S/N performance afforded by balanced audio on headphones that take this sensation to new heights.Comfort comes with 3D memory-foam pads wrapped in velour-type cloth or soft leather-type material, and adjustable hangers to assure a secure fit.
