HEDD has announced the first full-range headphone design based on HEDD/ADAM founder and speaker veteran Klaus Heinz’ Air Motion Transformer driver.
HEDD, based in Berlin, Germany, said the Air Motion Transformer (AMT) is an electrodynamic transducer that allows air to move significantly faster than with common voice coil, magnetostatic (planar) or electrostatic systems. Their traditional piston-like movement is overcome by a folded diaphragm that squeezes out air four times faster.
The AMT is said to be a breakthrough for capturing more details in any audio recording. In order to reproduce the complete audible frequency band, the company is also introducing VVT technology, a new variable diaphragm geometry that replaces the fixed geometric structure of conventional AMT tweeters.
Aiming at both the pro and audiophile markets, the HEDDphone brings improved dynamic capabilities and the superior sonic resolution of the AMT principle to high-end headphones.
HEDDphone ONE will be available late in the third quarter, 2019. The price will be well below 2000 Euro.
