New deejays headphones Allen & Heath Xone XD2-53

Designed to complement Allen & Heath‘s brand of Xone DJ mixers, the company have launched this updated version of its flagship Xone headphones, the XD-53s. Allen & Heath have launched the new XD2-53s with several new features.

The new XD2-53s have a circumaural design (completely surrounds the ear), providing excellent isolation from ambient noise, making them ideal for DJ’s working in loud environments. The 53mm drivers deliver an extremely high performance, with an extended low frequency response.

The rotating earpieces with soft earpads allow easy one-ear monitoring and the adjustable, metal reinforced headband ensures excellent wearing comfort. Xone XD2-53s come in a stylish new gunmetal finish, detachable coiled cable and folding design for compact portability.

The XD2-53s are the first choice for many of the world’s top DJs, existing users include British DJ Pete Tong.

The XD2-53s headphones will be available immediately for 177 Euros.
