Tascam has debuted the TH-07 High Definition Headphone Monitors, a premium headphone intended to duplicate the audio quality of high-end near audio field monitors.
Tascam said the TH-07 has been tuned for full but natural bass, flat mid-range and a clear high end. The company said the new phones are suitable for mixing, monitoring or any audio task demanding outstanding quality.
The new headphones employ custom-made 50 mm drivers and offer a wide 10 Hz to 30 kHz frequency response and sensitivity of 100 dB ±3 dB. The closed-back design allows a full bass response while blocking out most external noise.
With its circumaural design and ear-cups of soft, pliable leather that fit snugly over the ear, TH-07s remain comfortable over long sessions, even when wearing eyeglasses. The ear-cups can be rotated and angled for flexibility and one-ear monitoring. They also provide substantial isolation from sounds in the outside world.
The TH-07 comes with two detachable cables. One cable is coiled and shorter for low-clutter, short-distance work and has a 1/8-inch connector; the other is straight and longer (approximately 8½ feet) and has a multi-connector that accommodates both 1/8-inch and ¼-inch jacks.
Both cables have gold-plated connectors. A leather bag with a pull-tie closure protects the headphones when they are being transported or not in use.
No price or release date was given.
