Neumann NDH 20 Studio Headphone Debuts

Neumann just released their first headphone, model NDH 20 for $499. The closed-back, over-ear studio headphones feature newly designed 38mm drivers with high-gauss neodymium magnets that ensure high sensitivity and low distortion. No dedicated headphone amplifier is needed, so it’s convenient to use with mobile devices such as laptop computers.

The Neumann NDH 20 combines excellent isolation with a carefully balanced sound image and outstanding resolution. It 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 NDH 20 is also suited to mixing purposes. An unusually flat frequency response and natural stereo image allow for mixing with confidence and ensure compatibility to all playback systems. The NDH 20 is a dream come true: reliable studio-grade monitoring – even on the road,” said Wolfgang Fraissinet, President Neumann.Berlin.

Large and soft memory foam ear pads make the NDH 20 comfortable to wear for long periods without fatigue. 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.
