Neumann is well known for their microphones, but have never built headphones in the past. That has changed as they just revealed their first ever headphones – the NDH 20.
The headphones are foldable. Neumann uses new technology for maximum sensitivity and low distortion. The design is completed with a headband that is adjustable and made out of steel. The total price for the headphones is currently $500 which includes a cloth bag and two cords.
- The new headphone by Neumann has a closed-back and foldable design and it is essential for users who are studio-based who track and mix on headphones.
- The headphones are different from the KH studio monitors because the manufacturers wanted to achieve high acoustic isolation and a neutral tone suited to reference monitoring.
- The headphone has maximum sensitivity because it uses new 38 mm moving coil drivers with neodymium magnets along with an impressive flat frequency in the range 5Hz to 30KHz.
“Given that headphones are effectively ‘microphones in reverse’, it seems odd that mic legends Neumann had never manufactured any… until they announced the NDH20.”
