From What Hifi:
"Pioneer claims its SE-MS5-T headphones are the most affordable hi-res certified over-ears in the world.
The rules are quite clear: if a pair of headphones is going to carry the official Hi-Res Audio logo, they must respond up to a bandwidth of at least 40kHz. Ignore for a moment the fact that's way above the threshold of human hearing - rules are rules.
The latest pair to earn this badge of honour come courtesy of Pioneer and its new SE-MS5-T over-ears."
------------------------What are hi-res audio headphones? And do they sound better?
"Hi-Res sound at a bargain price
The Pioneer SE-MS5T's are currently the best value Hi-Res headphones on the market. Being compatible with the Hi-Res, High Resolution music standard means outstanding detail and dynamics. With a frequency response of 9-40,000Hz you hear every tiny detail and subtle harmonics within the music.
The perfect match for your Hi-Res player or smartphone
With dedicated Hi-Res music players from the likes of Astell & Kern, Acoustic Research and Pioneer plus an ever-growing range of compatible smartphones, Hi-Res music is the way to go. With such outstanding sound quality available from a pocket-sized device it makes sense to match with headphones that are designed to keep up - such as the Pioneer SE-MS5T.
As well as precisely revealing every last drop of detail, these Pioneer Hi-Res headphones also produce a deep, powerful bass. With rare earth magnets, super-light voice coils and 40mm diameter drivers, the Pioneer's provide a bass that's not just deep but punchy, too.
Perfect for music on the move
Using a single-sided, tangle-free cable, the Pioneer's are unobtrusive on the move. The closed back design also helps block out background noise, letting you hear that extra detail more easily.
Take calls and control your music
Featuring an inline remote with microphone, the SEMS5t is the perfect partner for your smartphone. Switch between music and calls at the touch of a button, without having to take your phone out of your pocket or bag."
