HEDD

Analog Studio Monitors with Digital Minds by HEDD

HEDD’s innovative studio monitors connect newest analog loudspeaker technology with the requirements of a contemporary, that is, hybrid digital/analog audio workspace.

Regardless of its particular design, we believe that a studio monitor should be suited to function as a tool that, marking the last link of the signal chain, can evaluate raw recordings and mixes-in-progress with the same precision that it would bring to already mastered productions. In order to guarantee a sound that transports a music production’s sonic pattern in its utmost transparency, Klaus Heinz has selected only the most professional and powerful components.

We have chosen particularly stable, matt black and unibody-like casings, which come with front panels of up to 38mm thickness. These super solid casings ensure that the sound remains stable and effortless even at the full capacity of the powerful amplifier modules that the Danish manufacturer ICEpower® provides. These amplifiers offer first-rate measurements, high efficiency, and of course: great sound.

HEDDphone®

A New Chapter in Headphone Technology

HEDD is proud to introduce the first full range Air Motion Transformer headphones to audiophiles and recording artists worldwide. The Air Motion Transformer (AMT) is an electrodynamic transducer that allows to move air significantly faster than 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: A breakthrough for capturing more details in a musical recording.

30 years ago HEDD CEO and Chief Engineer Klaus Heinz designed the first compact and marketable AMT tweeter based on Oskar Heil’s original Air Motion Transformer invention. Since then he has increased its sonic quality in several fundamental revisions. The 2019 version of the AMT can be heard in HEDD´s innovative Series ONE studio monitor line.

Recently Heinz has focused on developing a full range Air Motion Transformer to break new grounds for this superior transducer principle. In order to reproduce the complete audible frequency band (and beyond), the HEDDphone® incorporates VVT® (pat. pending). VVT® introduces a new diaphragm geometry that expands the AMT principle to a linear full range (10Hz–40kHz) headphone transducer. It replaces the fixed geometric structure of conventional AMT drivers as the folds vary both in width and depth.

The HEDDphone® introduces a fourth transducer technology. It brings the enormous dynamic capabilities and the superior sonic resolution of the AMT principle to the world of top-end headphones. HEDDphone® excels where it really matters: in accurate, untamed, and touching music reproduction.

Inside the AMT

The single folds squeeze the air in a 4:1 ratio (velocity transform) instead of pushing it in a 1:1 ratio as it is common in all other transducer technologies.

Series ONE Type 30

Nearfield Studio Monitor

The HEDD Type 30 is an exceptional midfield monitor. Whether as a full range speaker solution in an elegant recording studio, post-production space or in broadcasting contexts, it is an ideal player in the most diverse fields of application. This powerful 3-way-system, that features two horizontally aligned and rock-solid sounding 7”-woofers, a 4”-midrange woofer, and the HEDD Air Motion Transformer tweeter for vivid and uncolored high frequency reproduction, creates an ultra-wide frequency range from 30Hz all the way up to 50kHz. Nothing less than 4×300 watts of the finest ICEpower® amplification are hidden in the Type 30’s strong and beautiful, matt-black cabinet.

The Type 30 offers XLR and RCA connections and full HEDD Bridge compatibility, meaning that you can insert an optional input-card for AES3-, USB2-, and even Dante / AES67-functionality into a free slot on the back panel of the speaker.

Series ONE Type 20

Nearfield Studio Monitor

The HEDD Type 20 is a fully-fledged 3-way-system stuffed into a sleek and small footprint cabinet. It gives you the best of both monitoring worlds: convenient dimensions to easily fit the speakers into compact recording, mastering, or sophisticated home studios and the complete skillset of a full-range midfield monitoring system. The Type 20 is based around a strong, rubber-coated cabinet, that incorporates our self-designed Honeycomb-sandwich woofers (7“ bass / 4“ midrange) and the HEDD Air Motion Transformer tweeter for the most alive and accurate high frequency reproduction. Three 300W D-Class ICEpower modules work in the amp section of these analog speakers. The sound of this ultra-compact monitor is just magic: pristine, powerful and effortless with all the advantages you get from a dedicated 3-way-system.

The Type 20 can be noted for its wonderful clarity in the midrange, offering better dynamics and an increased three-dimensionality across its sound stage. With a frequency spectrum ranging from 50kHz all the way down to 32Hz, the Type 20 can manage the most complex and challenging audio situations. It offers you analog monitoring with digital expansion at the highest level. The Type 20 incorporates the versatile HEDD Bridge system. Besides standard analog connections (XLR/RCA), you can insert optional input cards for AES3-, USB2-, and even Dante / AES67-functionality into the free slot on the back panel of the speaker.

FEATURES

  • Frequency response: 45Hz – 50kHz (Crossover: 2400Hz)

Series ONE Type 07

Nearfield Studio Monitor

The Type 07 is much more than a classical near field-monitor. It creates a degree of sonic stability, spatiality, and transparency that makes it sound much bigger and more mature than its moderate size and sleek design make it appear. It features 2×100W ICEpower® amps, a newly designed, rock-solid woofer and an improved Air Motion Transformer for a natural and accurate high-frequency reproduction. It is precisely for these reasons that there is hardly a field of audio production, which the Type 07 is not ideally suited for: its clever design makes it an especially good player in broadcasting contexts as well as in recording and mix-down studios.

The Type 07 comes, like every HEDD speaker, with XLR and RCA connections. In addition, it also features a free card slot that allows for a wider range of digital functionality. HEDD currently offers optional cards for Dante, Ravenna / AES67 (Audio-over-IP!), AES3/EBU and USB2 integration

FEATURES

  • Frequency response: 38Hz – 50kHz (Crossover: 2300Hz)
