Pioneer, the creators of STEEZ, a brand of portable audio products developed specifically for dancers, introduces its new ear-clip SE-D10E and inner-ear SE-D10C STEEZ headphones, providing powerful dance beat playback, excellent sound quality and a secure fit for fast movements.

In recent years, street dancing has gained popularity all over the world, with countless dance events and street dance performances where dancers get together and compete to show off their moves and style. Pioneer’s newest additions to the STEEZ headphones line-up, the SE-D10E and SE-D10C are designed for those trendy street dancers who want to stand out while listening to music and leading their active lifestyles.

The SE-D10E STEEZ headphones – available in two stylish colour combinations – feature a revolutionary “Active Fit” function¹, which introduces a ball joint connecting the hanger parts to the canal-type inner parts. The ball joint changes the angle of the nozzle to suit the ear shape and earhole angle of the user, resulting in an extremely comfortable and secure fit. By incorporating high performance 9mm speaker units using strong rare earth magnets, the headphones guarantee powerful bass sound.

As well as delivering powerful dance beat playback, the SE-D10E comes with a set of features tailored to dancers such as a new type of ear clip with Skull Fit Hanger Function that goes around the ear to ensure that the headphones stay securely in place even during the most intense movements. Dual coiled cords offer more flexibility and can be tied at the back of the neck for added convenience. The headphones have a sweat-proof design with an IPX2-rated² moisture protection grade.

Accessories include earphone tips in four sizes and two colours, a handy carrying pouch, a tangle-free slider and colour coded housing for easy left and right identification.

The 2nd new model in the STEEZ line-up, the white SE-D10C inner-ear headphone, features 9mm diameter high-sensitivity driver units using strong neodymium magnets to deliver clear, deep bass. By directing the speaker unit and nozzle towards the earhole sound reaches the ear directly from the speaker unit, which reduces sound leakage resulting in excellent sound quality.

In addition, the direct ear-mounted design and angled nozzle maximise comfort. To prevent the cord from tangling when storing the headphones, the SE-D10C comes equipped with a tangle-free slider. The package includes earphone tips in four sizes to suit all ears.


Availability

The SE-D10C headphones are available from December 2012.
The SE-D10E headphones will be in the shops as of March 2013.
