The S-DJ05-Ws deliver accurate, neutral sound reproduction, while their innovative features make them adaptable for all studio roles, whether DJing, producing or just listening to music.

The innovative waveguide shaped tweeter and independently driven woofer deliver a wide, deep sweet spot – so you can rely on perfect sound clarity whether you are standing to DJ or sitting to produce music.

Now available in white, they are the perfect addition for any home studio, whatever your tastes. Due for release mid-November, the suggested retail price is 599 euros / £499 inclusive of VAT.
