HEDD Audio announces the launch of successor to the original HEDDphone ONE: HEDDphone TWO

HEDD Audio, the Berlin based manufacturer of high end studio monitors and headphones has announced the launch of its long anticipated successor to the original HEDDphone ONE: HEDDphone TWO

Powered by new advances in Air Motion Transformer technology and informed by detailed user feedback, the new HEDDphone has undergone a turbo-charged evolution. With a folded Kapton diaphragm over three times larger than in traditional dynamic, planar, or electrostatic driver designs, the sound of HEDDphone TWO has reached new heights, precisely tailoring subtle transients and creating a transparent, natural musicality. It produces a speaker-like, evenly balanced soundstage with stunning definition, permitting long listening periods with very little fatigue.

Building on the success of its predecessor among Award-winning producers and engineers such as Tchad Blake, Hildur Guðnadóttir, or DJ Jazzy Jeff, this headphone is crafted with a discerning eye on the needs of mastering engineers, mix engineers, and producers whilst also aiming at the broader spectrum of consumer headphone enthusiasts.

Several breakthroughs have been achieved in the three and a half year process of developing and designing HEDDphone TWO . By reconstructing the driver from scratch and using lightweight materials like carbon fibre and magnesium, the HEDD R&D team was able to achieve a staggering 25% weight reduction. An all new mechanical design was developed in order to make the product more compact and

The extensive material and reliability testing results in HEDD offering a rare and extended 5 years’ warranty for these headphones.
A patent is pending for the all new unique headband (= HEDDband) that provides users with a true custom-comfort-fit experience. HEDD have gone all out to invent a smart strap system, allowing parameters like height, width, curvature and even the clamping pressure to be tweaked to the individual head shape and taste.

To ensure highest flexibility straight out of the box, the company includes a carrying case as well as additional balanced / unbalanced cables, making it easy to take HEDDphone TWO to projects – and even on vacation. Heavy users will also appreciate the spare set of ear pads for prolonged usage.
