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 to satisfy listeners who value accurate reproduction of quality sources. Its organic composition absorbs minute resonances for faithful source reproduction, sounding particularly natural with acoustic instruments and vocals.

Full-Range Dynamic Design
Sound blooms true to the artist’s intent through these 50 mm (1.96˝) full-range dynamic drivers. Large surface area and no crossover assure perfect phase alignment for cohesion and localization. The unique transducer profile was developed in-house to shed unwanted resonance, revealing details otherwise lost from distortion.

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
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.

Floating Structure
The SE-MONITOR5 sound quality benefits from a floating base structure. The entire base assembly floats on rubber insulators to prevent L/R channel interference.

Super Duralumin Hangers
The hanger arms are constructed from super duralumin alloy. A wide yet finely graduated range of adjustment provides a comfortable fit for all listeners, with generously padded headband relieving pressure at contact points. Together with premium earpads, the SE-MONITOR5 can be worn for hours without fatigue.

Supplied with Two Pairs of Premium Earpads
The SE-MONITOR5 features memory-foam cushion earpad design typically found on higher priced audiophile headphones. Wrapped in soft velour-type cloth, the pads easily detach should you wish to change to supplied soft leather-type earpads. Whichever you choose, expect hours of immersive listening in total comfort.

Original Unbalanced Cord Design
Custom fabricated by Pioneer, the included unbalanced audio cords feature gold-plated 3.5 mm (1/8˝) 3-pole stereo connectors. Dual wires are braided to reduce electromagnetic interference and to resist tangling. The 1.6 m (5 ft.) and 3 m (9 ft.) cord lengths allow for easy enjoyment of premium sound on the go or while relaxing at home.

Balanced Audio Cord Included
Also made by Pioneer, the included 1.6 m (5 ft.) balanced audio cords feature gold-plated 2.5 mm (3/32˝) 4-pole stereo connectors. Dual wires are braided to reduce electromagnetic interference and to resist tangling. The perfect partner for next-generation DAPs, this balanced cord lets you experience an increase in headroom, channel separation, and overall clarity. With signals for left and right channels treated independently, crosstalk is eliminated for appreciably improved stereo performance.
