Listening with the Pioneer SE-MONITOR5 headphones transforms ordinary audio into something truly special. Pioneer have crafted this audiophile grade headphone from the lineage of its flagship headphone, and it really shows. With a closed design and unique drivers developed in-house to limit unwanted resonance, the SE-MONITOR5 captivates with faithful reproduction of Hi-Res Audio formats.

In the Pioneer SE-MONITOR5 technology truly meets the organic, with drivers crafted from natural wood pulp that is five times stronger and one-fifth lighter than iron. This breakthrough natural composition absorbs minute resonances for faithful source reproduction, sounding particularly natural with acoustic instruments and vocals.

As a truly versatile headphone the SE-MONITOR5 is able to support balanced and unbalanced audio. Included are three cables with different lengths and terminations to make sure you are able to achieve the best possible listening experience, either at home or on the go.

Reignite your passion for music.




Custom Designed Drivers
Crafted from advanced Cellulose Nano-Fibers, the drivers of the SE-MONITOR5 are able to convey power and balance to audio making for a high-fidelity sound letting you hear the detail and richness of audio like never before.

Distortion Free Design
Base and housing construction have a significant impact on sound quality. Rather than plastic, the SE-MONITOR5 employs a super-rigid magnesium alloy material that allows the transducer to achieve the best performance.

Balanced and Unbalanced Audio
To enable the enjoyment of high resolution sound anywhere Pioneer have added three cables. With two standard audio cables and one balanced audio cable the SE-MONITOR5 are a highly versatile listening machine, either on home Hi-Fi setups or on the go.

Premium Earpads
Pioneer SE-MONITOR5 are equipped with memory-foam cushion earpad design typically found on higher priced audiophile headphones. Wrapped in either soft velour-type cloth, or soft leatherette material, the easily exchanged earpads provide hours of immersive listening in highest comfort.
