Pioneer’s history in quality audio equipment began 80 years ago, with the vision of ‘delivering the joy of music to people far and wide’. In 1937, Pioneer produced the A-8, the first dynamic speaker to be produced in Japan, and have been committed to high fidelity sound reproduction ever since. Whether it's home speakers, car speakers or headphones, focus is always on the pure, faithful reproduction of sound. Pioneer have been developing and producing ground breaking headphones for more than half a century, starting with the SE-1 headphones in 1960. Now they are writing the next chapter in their long history of technical supremacy and purity in sound design.
The flagship SE-MASTER1 continues the Pioneer legacy. Welcome to the future of sound reproduction.
Made in Japan - hand-crafted by a master
Meticulous attention to even the finest detail was given to the production of the SE-MASTER1. Each unit is assembled by a master craftsman at the Tohoku Pioneer Plant in Japan; the birthplace of many iconic speaker models. Pioneer's advanced technological know-how goes into every step of the journey-from design to production and quality control - so your headphones deliver excellence without compromise.
AIR Studios approved Monitor Reference Headphones
AIR Studios in London is world-famous for its matchless music production facilities and is the recording studio of choice for many iconic artists. The SE-MASTER1s are the first headphones ever to be named AIR Studios Monitor Reference Headphones, a rare honor worn with pride.
High Res Audio
Designed for playback of hi-res audio files such as DSD, MQA or FLAC. The extremely wide range of frequencies reproduces even the finest sound details.
Balanced XLR Cable
A balanced XLR cable is sold separately for MASTER1, which is perfectly suited for use with a headphone amplifier and delivers superior sound quality. The cable has XLR connectors made by Neutrik. Both connectors are gold-plated to prevent loss of contact.
Industries First Membrane with Ceramic Coating
The lightweight 25μ-thick aluminium membrane is treated with a ceramic coating to give the headphones strength, to increase its natural performance and to ensure excellent sound quality. The result is high-definition sound across the entire frequency range.
