The Neumann team is pleased to announce the release of its first ever studio monitoring headphones, the NDH 20!
Critical Listening and Mixing. In the Studio, at Home, On the Road
The Neumann NDH 20 is a closed-back headphone combining excellent isolation
with the carefully balanced sound image and outstanding resolution you’d expect
from a Neumann product. The NDH 20 is thus ideally suited to monitoring and
mixing tasks, even in loud and noisy environments. Circumaural memory foam ear
pads offer high long-term comfort.
While many other closed-back headphones are marred by nasty resonances in the
midband, making it difficult to come to reliable mix decisions, the NDH 20 offers an
astonishingly detailed, well-balanced sound image, similar to Neumann’s acclaimed
studio loudspeakers. Superior sonics along with large memory foam ear pads make
the NDH 20 a pleasure to wear for long periods without fatigue.
The NDH 20 uses newly designed drivers (38 mm/1.5”) with high-gauss neodymium
magnets to ensure high sensitivity and minimized distortion, thus allowing the user
to listen to the pure audio signal without unwanted coloration. The mechanical
construction, too, meets the highest standards. The adjustable headband is made of
flexible steel while the ear cup covers are machined from lightweight aluminum. For
easy transportation the headphone is foldable and can be placed into the supplied
soft cloth bag. Two detachable cables (one straight, one coiled) and a 6.3 mm (1/4”)
adapter are also included.
The NDH 20 is suited to all applications that require high sound isolation such as
monitoring for musicians and engineers in the tracking room as well as FOH work. It
is also an excellent choice for critical listening, free from disturbance from the outside
world and, vice versa, without causing disturbance to people nearby due to leakage.
Thanks to its extended frequency response ranging from 5 Hz to 30 kHz the NDH 20 is
particularly helpful to check the upper and lower extremes of the audio band.
Unlike most other closed-back headphones, the Neumann NDH 20 is suited to mixing
purposes too. An unusually even frequency response and natural stereo image allow
for mixing with confidence and ensure compatibility to all playback systems. The
NDH 20 is thus an indispensible tool for working on the road. Of course, it is also an
excellent headphone for audiophile entertainment.
