When you want the most from radio

Your media choices are greater than ever these days. Pioneer's DEH-X7500HD receiver not only plays CDs, it also features a USB input for a storage device, iPod®, or phone, along with an auxiliary input for other audio devices. But what if radio's still #1 during your drive time?

The DEH-X7500HD features a built-in HD Radio™ tuner, so you won't need a subscription or any extra equipment to enjoy HD Radio broadcasts — you'll tune them in like regular AM and FM shows. But that's where the similarity ends. You'll immediately notice that FM broadcasts on HD Radio sound nearly as good as CDs, while AM shows offer much more high-fidelity, static-free reception. Many participating stations also offer extra channels with alternate programming, so you can enjoy more variety without surfing the dial.

Pioneer DEH-X7500HD

MIXTRAX revs up the visuals

This versatile receiver also offers iPod® controls and Pandora® Internet radio control with your iPhone®, giving you a great mix of style, form, and function. And when you're listening to your music libraries, Pioneer's cool MIXTRAX feature adds a lightshow to your favorite playlists, as the DEH-7500HD's bright multi-colored display pulses in time with your music. And MIXTRAX fades in and out of each song just like a DJ would, adding special effects and keeping the musical energy high.

Killer display and colors

You're not stuck with one color scheme with this Pioneer. Both the knob and display colors are customizable, so you can match the look to your dash and your whims. The display is a show-stopper in itself, offering a variety of animated backgrounds and themes, presented in rich detail by Pioneer's Organic Electroluminescent technology.

The legacy of great Pioneer sound

The DEH-7500HD carries on Pioneer's tradition of superb sound quality with a powerful built-in amp that puts most stock radios to shame. Along with that extra power, you'll enjoy a 5-band equalizer to adjust your tone, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever to perk up the sound quality of compressed music, and a suite of other sophisticated sound controls. If you're looking to build a bigger system, you can connect amps and subs to the three pairs of preamp outputs to add some serious impact.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
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 or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific model compatibility with this receiver.

    Great receiver

    It's a great receiver for the money since I bought at sale price. It takes some patience figuring out the buttons. Plenty of audio options. It's a little bright for me at night. But you can turn off the display. Personally I would not pay the full price for the receiver, but at the sale price, it's a great value.

    Pros: Custom equalizer, display colors, plenty of options, ability to turn off display at night

    Cons: Too bright at night (see pros)

    Great Support

    I replaced the factory radio with this one. Crutchfield had a great price on it and they included all the parts I needed to install it. I was hearing pop sound whenever I change source or channel and I was able to narrow down where the problem was by looking at knowledge base on Crutchfield website and confirmed by calling their customer service. They send me ground adapters that are needed to fix the problem. It was my first time installing/replacing car stereo and it was possible because of Crutchfield made it so easy. Keep up the good work, Crutchfield!

    Pros: Stereo itself is so so. But, Crutchfield support is really good.

    Cons: light is too bright. Makes pop sound when connected to amp without ground adapter.

    I bought this to replace my pioneer super tuner 3 35 watts x 4. It sound better, and looks better. With mixtrax it hooks up to my phone and I can play what ever song I want. It took me 30 minuets to wire the harness, 20 minuets to install the radio. This was the first aftermarket radio I put in and it won't be the last one, thanks to Crutchfield for giving everything to put it in so easily.

    Pros: Looks, Install time, Sound quality, and Price

    Cons: None

    The sound from this is fine. My issues are with the awkward design. The presets are buried under layers of the user interface rather than just having buttons, and with the small text size and terrible glare in daylight, the display is impossible to read in many situations. If these were easier to just pop in and out, I would return and get something else, but this is OK enough that I will just learn to live with it. I plan on putting an anti-glare film for a cell phone on to see if that helps with daytime visibility.

    Pros: Good sound, good reception, cheap price

    Cons: Clunky, awkward interface design. Very bad glare in daylight.

    Amazing deal, almost perfect!

    This deck is awesome! I love HD Radio, the sound quality is insane! Everything works perfectly. This is an incredible deal, look no further than this deck. My only issue with the deck is that the lights are a little too bright at night, even with the dimmer on.

    Pros: -HD Radio - CD like sound from the radio and additional stations! -Awesome sound -Looks really cool -Does everything I need it to do.

    Cons: -A little too bright at night,

    Great radio for the $. No complaints. Preset stations a little funky to use but you get the hang of it In a day or so. (& I'm no technical expert)

    Pros: Great value. Good sound. Easy install.

    Cons: Presets are funky at first, but you can master it in a day or so.

    This CD/MP3 head unit is great for a standalone or amplified system. It's built for an amplified system, since it has 3 pre-amp outputs, which are helpful when connecting to amplifiers by eliminating the need to split output audio signals. The build of the detachable faceplate is of good quality. The built-in and customizable EQ settings, bass booster, and MIXTRAXX all help to provide great sound quality and volume. The audible difference can be heard when adjusting from 0 dB to 2 dB. I can barely hear a difference on other decks when I had +3db or more. Pioneer did not skimp on sound quality!

    Pros: Great sound quality and value for the money! Pioneer did it right by including the DJ-like MIXTRAXX feature, which allows for continuous playback of songs. Fast-loading of CDs and auto-detection and playback of USB thumb drives!

    Cons: Switching radio and HD radio channels require a little more work with navigating the buttons. The rear USB input cable could be moved to the front, as I rarely use the AUX input port.

    Awesome deck

    First off for the price who can really complain. You do get a lot of car stereo for the price. Installation was aided by Crutchfield's tech department since the previous owner had decided to do their own cut and slicing leaving no original adapter to plug into. Thank you. Good overall sound quality and everything works.

    Pros: The price and Pioneer tuner.

    Cons: Like most today too many gadgets - you have to dig deep to get some basic functions set up. Way too much glare on the face to see the station numbers.

    Big Bang for your buck!

    Was looking for a quality CD player, and I've found found it right here with the 7500hd! Yeah buddy!! HD radio is nice. It doesn't have buttons for saved preset radio stations but that doesn't bother me. Easy to scroll through yo. It might bother some. Sweet color configs and overall design.

    Pros: Great CD player Two sub outs Great price for 100!!!

    Cons: May require additional amp to speakers/sub for optimal sound (goes for any head unit bcs of watt regulations) Wish it had more eq channels, perhaps one for 60 hz(only goes to 100)(wouldn't matter if I had a sub though)
