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.

It is for this reason that we have chosen powerful ICEpower® modules to drive the chassis of our Series ONE studio monitors. While our trademark feature, the HEDD Air Motion Transformer (HEDD AMT) reproduces high-frequency material in unbelievably detailed and dynamic accuracy, our brand-new woofer takes over in the mids and bass range.

HEDD Woofer

Our HEDD 5″ and 7″ woofer are based on a superstiff honeycomb-sandwich diaphragm structure.

Air Motion Transformer HEDD

The HEDD Air Motion Transformer, Klaus Heinz´ signature tweeter design, is based on an early invention by the German American physicist Oskar Heil.  

This woofer is of an unheard-of quality. The honeycomb-sandwich-material used for the diaphragm is based on the most advanced resin system and is therefore around three times stiffer than in previous woofer designs (measured in Young’s modulus). This increases the accuracy between the moving of the voice coil and the resulting oscillation of air pressure, and thus, lowers side effects when listening to audio material. The sound becomes more transparent and three-dimensional. Every aspect of this woofer, it’s electromechanical parameters (Thiele/Small), the way it is fixated in the chassis and reacts to equalizers, is laid out to perform optimally: Big voice coils, linearized perfectly aligned magnetic systems make it possible to reproduce bass- and midrange material with great dynamic and precision.

  1. HEDD Bridge
    Inputcard-slot for digital connectivity (available: Dante & AES67, AES3, USB2)
  2. Low Shelf filter
    ± 2dB at 200Hz // ± 4dB at 50Hz
  3. High Shelf filter
    ± 2dB at 5kHz // ± 4dB at 20kHz
  4. Gain
    Variable input gain between – 30dB and + 6dB
    0 dB = 440mV (-4.9dBu, -7.1dBV) input voltage deliver 90dB SPL (1m); Input Gain = 0dB

  8. Power connection
    All HEDD monitors come with regulated Universal Mains, working from 85V-264V. Regulated means that our amps will work at their full capacity under any condition.

This combination of unique and expertly chosen components and analog filters as well as our longstanding experience in attuning these various components to perfectly complement each other results in a nearly linear frequency response and an outstanding signal fidelity of HEDD’s studio monitors. And there is more: Perhaps the greatest highlight that our new models come with is the input-card system that can be found on each monitor’s back panel: our three optionally obtainable HEDD Bridge modules allow our loudspeakers to read either AES3/EBU or – and this is a truly innovative – even the newest Audio-over-IP protocols like Dante Audio or Ravenna Network/AES67. In the course of 2016, we will in addition introduce USB2 and Wireless cards in order to further optimize your audio workspace and make our products future-proof in every aspect.
