Hand built by a single engineer in the Tokyo factory these audiophile headphones from Pioneer are their ultimate expression of high-end personal audio.

The SE-MASTER1’s aluminium housing and full basket system with low-resonance floating structure, make sure that unwanted vibrations cannot interfere with the music. At the same time, it enhances the separation between left and right to deliver an enhanced soundstage. London’s renowned AIR Studios have rigorously tested and tuned these headphones to achieve pure and precise sound reproduction. Carrying their seal of approval, the SE-MASTER1 now is the world-first AIR Studios Monitor Reference Headphones.

The 25µm aluminium diaphragm is finished with a Parker Ceramic Coating (PCC), which improves accuracy in the high frequencies, pushing the audio performance to a higher level. In addition, the PEEK (Poly-ether-ether-ketone) compounding material helps to reduce distortion, achieving an even smoother sound quality.

All materials for the SE-MASTER1 are carefully selected for their qualitative characteristics and beauty. With great attention to detail, each unit is handmade by a single certified craftsman in Tohoku Pioneer’s Tendo factory in Japan, and will be engraved with its own serial number.

The SE-MASTER1s feature the industry's first detachable lateral pressure rods, enabling you to choose your preferred headband tension. Simply change the tension rod to achieve strong or weak lateral pressure. When combined with twin layer memory foam earpads you will enjoy superb sound isolation and comfortable wear over long periods.
