Neumann, known for its studio microphones and audio monitors, has announced the Neumann NDH 20 closed-back studio headphones, its first headphone product.
Neumann said it combined excellent isolation with a carefully balanced sound image and outstanding resolution. The headphones were designed to be suited to monitoring, editing and mixing tasks, even in loud and noisy environments.
“Unlike most other closed-back headphones, the NDH 20 is also suited to mixing purposes,” said Wolfgang Fraissinet, president of Neumann.Berlin. “An unusually flat frequency response and natural stereo image allow for mixing with confidence and ensure compatibility to all playback systems.”
The NDH 20’s newly designed 38-mm drivers with high-gauss neodymium magnets ensure high sensitivity and low distortion. The NDH 20 does not need a dedicated headphone amplifier. It sounds good on both mobile devices and laptop computers.
The headband is made of flexible spring steel while the ear cup covers are machined from lightweight aluminum. Large and soft memory foam ear pads make the NDH 20 comfortable to wear for long periods without fatigue. For transportation, the NDH 20 is foldable.
