Our take on the Pioneer DEH-4400HD

by Ken Nail
Pioneer

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

If you want the best in radio sound quality, tap into the high-fidelity sound of digital HD Radio™ with Pioneer's DEH-4400HD CD receiver. Its built-in tuner lets you experience FM reception that approaches CD quality, along with the alternate programming choices offered by many stations. And this receiver really looks as good as it sounds, with a sharp dot-matrix LCD display and selectable color choices for the display and buttons.

Pioneer DEH-4400HD

Radio's not the only thing that'll sound better
It's no stretch to say that the sound of Pioneer receivers is legendary. This receiver's conservatively rated MOSFET amplifier uses special transistors to ensure strong full-range output that stands with any car stereo on the market — you'll hear solid lows and crisp highs from all your music sources. And you'll like the flexibility that the 3-band equalizer offers for dialing in just the right sound for your car and your taste.

More music choices
If you don't listen to the radio all the time, you'll appreciate the range of options this receiver offers. Plug an iPod® or iPhone® into the front-panel USB input and you'll be able to use your receiver's controls to zip through your songs and playlists. With a 1-amp output, the USB port will keep your device fully charged even through periods of heavy usage.

You'll also find an auxiliary input, so you can plug in Dock & Play satellite radios, game consoles, and other devices. And, if you like CDs, this stereo will handle all your CDs, as well as discs or thumb drives you've loaded with MP3 and WMA files.

Want to keep your steering wheel coan adapter (not included)  ntrols?
In most vehicles you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    HD Radio

    HD Radio: The Pioneer DEH-4400HD's built-in HD Radio tuner lets you listen to the radio with the same fidelity as your digital music. HD Radio features high quality audio, FM multi-casting, and data services. With HD Radio, your FM stations offer near CD-quality sound, AM stations provide FM-like sound, and there is crystal-clear reception with no audio distortion. Best of all, HD Radio is 100% subscription free. The unit's tuner also supports analog AM/FM broadcasts.

    Note: HD Radio is the system for digital AM and FM broadcasting in the U.S. More than 2,000 radio stations are broadcasting their primary signals in digital HD Radio technology, as a free service. Go to HDRadio.com to check for HD Radio stations in your area.

    Multicasting: In addition to conventional broadcasts, with HD Radio broadcasting it is possible to choose from up to 3 multicast programs (HD1 to HD3, and analog). There are also data programs for each program.

    RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible analog or HD AM/FM stations.

    Supertuner IIID: The Supertuner IIID features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

    Reception Blending: If a digital broadcast reception condition gets poor, this unit automatically switches to the analog broadcast of the same frequency level. If this function is set to "On", the tuner switches between digital broadcast and analog broadcast automatically. If this function is 'Off', reception will be conducted within an analog broadcast.

    BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function lets you automatically store the six strongest analog or HD stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.

    Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 levels of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    Disc Playback

    Compatible Discs: The Pioneer DEH-4400HD supports playback of CD-Audio, CD-Text, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.

    MP3/WMA Playback: This unit can play MP3 and WMA files recorded on, CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. MP3 files with a bit rate from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with a constant bit rate from 48-320 kbps, and WMA files with a variable bit rate from 48-384 kbps are supported. The unit is compatible with ID3 Tags and will display artist, folder, file, and album name. Up to 8 directories, 99 folders and 999 files per disc are recognized by this unit.

    WAV File Playback: The DEH-4400HD offers playback of audio WAV files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs. The head unit supports 8-bit and 16-bit LPCM (Linear PCM) WAV files with a sampling frequency between 16 to 48 kHz.

    File/Track Name List: The Name List feature displays a list of MP3/WMA folders and tracks on a loaded CD or connected USB device, so you can easily access your music. The Name List will also display the list of track titles on a CD Text disc.

    Off Insert/Eject: A CD disc can be inserted or ejected with the power off. When a disc is inserted with the power off, the unit will automatically power up and begin playback.

    Auto Off Eject: When you eject a disc, the unit will automatically power off (unless you switch sources before ejecting the disc).

    Installation Angle: Optimum CD playback performance is obtained when the unit is installed at an angle of less than 60-degrees.

    USB/iPod/Aux Connection

    Front-Panel USB Input: The unit's front-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to connect a USB portable audio player or USB flash memory that is USB Mass Storage Class compliant.  Your USB memory device must be formatted in FAT 12/16/32. Up to 8 directories, 500 folders, and 15000 files per USB device are recognized by this unit. The unit is compatible with ID3 Tags and will display artist, folder, file, and album name, plus comments.

    • MP3/WMA Files: MP3 files with a bit rate from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with a constant bit rate from 48-320 kbps, and WMA files with a variable bit rate from 48-384 kbps are supported.
    • WAV Files: 8-bit and 16-bit WAV (LPCM) files with a sampling frequency between 16 to 48 kHz are supported.

    Note: USB portable audio players that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the CD receiver's USB port (1A) and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On. This unit cannot recognize USB devices via a USB hub.

    iPod Direct Connection: The Pioneer DEH-4400UB's front-panel USB port can be used to connect your iPod/iPhone to the head unit, via Pioneer's dock connector-to-USB cable (130CDIU50 / 130CDIU51, sold separately) or the dock connector-to-USB cable which comes with your iPod/iPhone. The DEH-4400HD supports audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of your compatible iPod/iPhone.

    Note: If you have an iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), or iPhone 5; use the Lighting-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect to the head unit.

    • Head Unit: From the head unit, you can browse your iPod/iPhone's music library by Artist, Album, Song, Genre, Playlist, Composer, Podcast, or Audiobook (your iPod/iPhone's clickwheel or touchscreen will be locked). Once you have selected a category, you can search each category alphabetically. In addition, the head unit offers Link Search, which allows you to play songs related to the currently playing song. Link Search lets the head unit create an album list of the currently playing artist, a song list of the currently playing album, or an album list of the currently playing genre. You can also select Random & Repeat functions for a certain song or specific folder.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    Auxiliary Input: The DEH-4400HD is equipped with a front-panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external components, such as a portable MP3 player. AUX must be turned on in the setup menu in order to be selected as a source.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior CD sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The DEH-4400HD is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the DEH-4400HD are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the DEH-4400HD are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)

    3-Way Rotary Commander: The Pioneer DEH-4400HD features a 3-Way Rotary Commander for easy control. You can scroll through your music and audio settings with greater ease using the 3-way rotary commander.

    Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity, the way the artist intended it, from all of your highly compressed MP3 and WMA files stored on your USB device, iPod/iPhone, and portable media players. By restoring data (especially higher frequencies) that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies

    EEQ (Easy EQ): The DEH-4400HD is equipped with a 3-band EQ with 6 preset EQ settings: Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom, and EQ Flat. The Custom band can be adjusted as follows:

    • Bass: +/- 6dB at 100 Hz
    • Mid: +/- 6dB at 1 kHz
    • Treble: +/- 6dB at 10 kHz

    Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.

    Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4dB to +4dB.

    2.0-Volt Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer DEH-4400HD features two pairs of 2.0-volt preamp outputs. The unit's rear preamp output can be configured as a fading rear-channel output or a non-fading subwoofer output with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment, and output level control. When configured as the subwoofer output, you can select the frequency of the 18dB/octave low pass filter (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz), select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).

    Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Speaker Output: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face Security: The Pioneer DEH-4400HD in-dash CD receiver features Detachable Face Security. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    Note: No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.

    Color Customization: Color Customization lets the user match their receiver illumination to their vehicle's interior lighting. Over 210,000 colors are available to match the illumination of almost any car. The button illumination and display illumination colors can be customized separately for an endless number of color combinations. You can select from 27 preset colors (White to Rose), customize an illumination color (by adjusting Red, Blue, and Green brightness levels), or scan through various color settings (All/Warm/Ambient/Calm/Custom).

    Ever Scroll: When the Ever Scroll feature is set to On, recorded text information scrolls continuously on the display. It will auto-scroll up to 64 characters. Set this feature to Off if you prefer the information to scroll only once.

    Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the Source button turns off audio output, but the clock display remains on. When the Clock Display has been turned off, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely. Even if you have turned the radio completely off you can view the clock display by pressing the clock button. The clock will then remain On until you turn it back Off. When the unit is On you can select between the clock display or the audio track/tuner display.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The DEH-4400HD comes with an IR wireless remote control. The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between sources, pause the CD, change the display, and adjust the audio. The mute button allows you to quickly lower the volume by about 90% (function that cannot be performed from the front panel).

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Not happy!!

    Written By NoiD, Powell WY on Saturday, March 15, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is hard to use. If I want to play my mp3's by gender, I better pull over to do it safely. Takes too much concentration to do while driving. Speakers that were matched to play with this clip at 1/2 volume. CD player skips over railroad tracks, old Pioneer didn't.
    Pros:
    Easy to install.
    Cons:
    Purchased with (4) MTX TN502 5.25" Coaxial Speakers (5-35W). They start to clip at 1/2 volume. CD player skips. Hard to use.

    top notch sound quality and sound for your money, and a seperate sub control
    Cons:
    none that i have found

    Pioneer rocks and the audio quality is the best whatever other brand you name it.
    Pros:
    Quality is always the best.
    Cons:
    Price is little high and I know its all about the quality but bringing the products a little lower would make you help more profit

    I really like this radio. The color change feature is why i bought this radio because i wanted to match it to my gauges. Sounds good and it is of fairly decent quality.
    Pros:
    Good quality. Fairly easy to use.
    Cons:
    USB plug in play is a pain to use thru the radio interface.

    Pretty good so far

    Written By Joe, Charlotte, NC on Wednesday, August 14, 2013
     
    I got this radio from an online auction site after researching it on this site. The variable colors are a plus. Turning the volume past 37 is a big change! I got it professionally installed yesterday. It fits, but there is a minor gap in the trim below the air vents. I had wondered if it would support the separate tweeters looking at the wires; I seem to have lost the driver's side in the process. As a bass-appreciator, it is not as "punchy" as the factory's. I am planning on replacing the old speakers at some point. I figured out the controls within 5 minutes, the return button is my friend. I really like the multiple input options: aux for Sirius and USB for thumb/iPhone 5. The HD radio does cut out unexpectedly, but I can't wait to use it when I travel again. The Matrix-like display is very nice and the removable face comes out with my Sirius radio.
    Pros:
    The display is very nice with the customizable colors. Input options keep me from dependence on a FM transmitter.
    Cons:
    Not a perfect fit compared to factory's.

    Nice / easy install (thx to Crutchfield. The features I needed (HD, 3.5mm, USB) and the wicked improvement in audio over the OEM left me happy. I'll be working on the speakers to match, but it's really pretty good, even with the OEMs.

    good features display can match anything (orange for me) my door still closes (this is low-profile)

    It has TONS of features and they aren't that hard to figure out once you get moving around the menus. Slow getting started setting it up because it's not as user friendly as I have had in the past but it has WAY more features! Love the changing display/button colors! Love the USB that charges in the front! Love being able to operate my iphone and ipod from the stereo and being able to search artists, playlists, songs, etc. from the stereo.

    Still Learning to Use it After Two Weeks

    Written By AllanT, Wichita, KS on Friday, May 17, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The sound is really good. I can hear instrumental parts I couldn't hear before. But after two emails to Pioneer and one call to Crutchfield, both companies being quite helpful, I've learned how to change or adjust or use it, but I'm still figuring out how to find where things are in the FM bands, for example, this despite spending hours trying to figure it out. Also, the display is usually too dim to be seen in sunlight. I like the way the unit sounds, but it is hard to learn.
    Pros:
    Good sound quality. Wonderful bass. Versatile ability to switch to using rear speakers as the subwoofer. Good support from Crutchfield and from Pioneer.
    Cons:
    Volume knob doesn't always adjust the volume. Display is hard or impossible to see. Controls are not intuitive.

    Pioneer DEH-4400HD

    Written By rkc, dublin, ca on Thursday, May 16, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The DEH 4400 was better than the Sony CDX-GT700HD at picking up HD signals even though the sony had a lower dbf. Non HD FM was better on the Sony. However, the DEH 4400 did drop the HD frequently so I returned it for a Kenwood KDC-HD455U which picked up HD a little better than the Pioneer but held the signals much better so much less fade outs which becomes irritating. Liked it so much that I bought a 2nd one as backup. Also pioneer did not play ipod tunes copied to a usb drive whereas the KW did. My main concern was FM reception and it met my expectations.
    Pros:
    Many display colors, front USB, plays ipod tunes on usb drive, price
    Cons:
    none

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is an inexpensive Receiver/player and it does exactly what it says it will do. If you want a thumpin' system this isn't it. I had no trouble using my iphone 5 in it, the CD player works great, the radio pulls in stations as well, but not better than the stock receiver. The big problem with this unit is that the user interface is not intuitive at all andI had to spend 45 minutes on the phone w/ Crutchfield Tech support (They were great) just to figure it out. The problem is that sometimes you use the MFC (multi-function control) to change between options, select options, and choose the option. But sometimes you use the left-right arrows to do that and sometimes you press the MFC. It seems that there is no rhyme nor reason to when you which control. I use computers, iphones, ipads, high end audio applications and have rarely had to call tech support. So to me if I can't figure out a radio in just a few minutes, it is not well designed.
    Pros:
    Solid value for the price. It was easy to install and the kits Crutchfield sells to make it look professionally installed were perfect (though the directions that came with them were useless) I had to figure out all the hard questions without the help.
    Cons:
    user interface is inconsistent and confusing. The "flames" that the display shows in attempt to be cool aren't. User manual is not helpful. It is full of information you don't need and missing most of what you do. It should have menu flowcharts!!!!

    This thing is great! Installed in less than an hour. Had one question about the wiring- called a tech at Crutchfield and he led me straight. Really impressed with the HD radio. Like many new tech toys of today, can't figure how I lived without for so long. The programming was not as bad as others have suggested. Read the manual folks. Follow the directions. It's not rocket science.
    Pros:
    Ease of installation. Crutchfield's got your back if you need it. Like the face and the fact that the clock stays on even when not in use.
    Cons:
    Might have to get another one in my other vehicle now that this one has spoiled me!
