The Pioneer SE-450 was originally designed to be a consumer-use headphone. It has no special features, but one : it doesn't break down. The DJ's began to find out about this feature around 1994 and a new industry standard standard was set.

For years the SE-450 was THE headphone to use; for any DJ in any style. Almost every major DJ used this model because it's reliability. The SE-450 can resist a fall from stairs or the DJ stage. Almost every credible DJ has his own story that is related to this type of phones.

Pioneer SE-450 exploded view
In the year 2000 the industrial mall in Pioneer's factory broke down. Reproduction cost of a new mall (to create the shell in which the speakers are housed) are to high. So the decision was made to discontinue the production of this model. A model that was running in the product line without a known change in designs for almost 6 years !

And today some of the parts of this model are still available through the Dealer network and at Pioneer Customer Services. You can contact your national Pioneer office to inform about the way to achieve these parts. If you are a resident from the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg) you can contact Pioneer HERE.

In the following table are the part numbers as they are known in Europe (Benelux). Most are still available although all stocks will run out when time passes. If you look at this exploded view you can figure out the part number to look for.

Top headphone. Alles wat niet mag ermee uitgevreten en inderdaad.. niet kapot te krijgen..  Alleen de kussentjes beginnen wat te verslijten en het schuim binnenin is allang verdwenen, maar nog steeds prima voor hardstyle / hardcore.
Draai de wat langzamere stijlen zoals club / dance liever met een sennheiser hd25.

Wow, die heb ik lang gebruikt, jaar of 8? perfecte radio headphone (in den beginne). Perfect geluid, goede pasvorm en geen rondzingen met de mic open. Hier heb ik mijn eerste feesten zelfs mee gedraaid in 1990/91. Nostalgie. Helaas was hij na een keer of 4 snoer vervangen echt op Unhappy
