The HD 400 Pro headphone is available now for $271.99.
Sennheiser has launched HD 400 Pro headphones designed primarily for people who are into audio production and audio mixing.
The headphones feature an open-back design, the company claims that the HD 400 Pro are extremely lightweight and has velour earpads. The unit includes both coiled and straight detachable cables, allowing the headphones to adapt to different user preferences.
Speaking about the launch, Gunnar Dirks, Product Manager, Professional Audio, said: “We are happy to introduce the first open studio headphones in Sennheiser’s Pro line. When editing and mixing, you need detail and honesty, and this is what the HD 400 Pro will give you. Thanks to their linear, high-resolution reproduction, these headphones are a reliable reference to create outstanding audio mixes.”
The HD 400 Pro has a frequency response range of 6 to 38,000 hertz, giving music producers complete control over their mix. Sennheiser’s 120-ohm transducers feature a diaphragm made of a special polymer blend, which, when combined with driver magnets, produces a clear and well-defined bass. The distortion is less than 0.05 per cent (measured at 1 kHz, 90 dB SPL).
In addition, the open-back design of the HD 400 PRO ensures a natural propagation of sound, unimpeded by the acoustic structures required in closed-back designs. The ear cups feature velour earpads and adjustable headbands that match the shape of your head.
The HD 400 Pro can be used with Dear Reality’s headphone monitoring plugins, which create a virtual mix room with carefully designed acoustics due to advanced spatial audio technology. The headphones have already been integrated into the Spatial Headphone Compensation feature in dearVR MIX; dearVR MONITOR integration will be released by the end of this year.
The HD 400 Pro is available now and retails at AED 999 ($271.99) inclusive of VAT. The headphones come with a three-meter coiled cable and a 1.8-meter straight cable, both fitted with a 3.5 mm (1/8”) jack plug for portable sources. A 6.3 mm (1/4”) adapter is included, ensuring that the HD 400 Pro connects to your mixing desk or audio interface.
