The Pioneer SE-MJ71-S headphones by Steel Wheels look nice with the silver aluminum finish, however there are issues with certain sounds, not to mention the short flimsy cord. Serious headphone fanatics would probably find these inadequate, but for the rest of us, they are good enough. The Steel Wheels headphones are great because they are ultra-lightweight and have sound isolating ear pads, expected for the requested asking price. The compact folding design makes these headphones small enough to pack them in your bag and take them anywhere. They won’t require too much bag room and on the plus side you won’t get that wire tangle problem like you get with earbuds. Looking inside the Pioneer SE-MJ71-S are a pair of powerful 40 mm drivers which can withstand 1,200 mW of input power. Now even better, they are extremely efficient at using the energy effectively providing an accurate sound due the high 105 dB sensitivity rating. A gold-plated mini plug and a high quality OFC Litz cord which is way too short can provide a firm connection to your Mp3 player. The sound isolating ear cups are meant to prevent sound leakage and do according to 60% of the customer reviews. In the past buyers have found that they are too small and can be very uncomfortable causing pain after a short 30minute usage. A quick overview would be that these headphones give you your moneys worth but if you want something 100% reliable then spend a bit more on something more expensive. If not you will be lucky if these headphones last more than a year. If you are uncertain about what headphones to buy then check out some other reviews written by us.
These Pioneer SE-MJ71-S headphones headphones will pinch your head. The cups are tiny and after half an hour of my ears being crushed I took them off. They sound ok but not worth the pain.
Pioneer SE-MJ71-S headphones is absolutely quality all the way. We’ve been looking for headphones for a long time before settling on the Pioneer. We knew it would be a ‘sure bet’. Never a problem with anything from Pioneer.
I use these for playing games and watching videos on the go. Its pretty good I however and not an audiophile and probably not the best judge.
For almost a year, I enjoyed these except for the short cord. But two days ago, a tiny cheap plastic part holding one of the cups to the headband broke. I’ve concluded that it’s worth the extra bucks to move up to a more solidly built product.
