Iconic Compact 3-Way Monitor with on-board Lineariser® and CoP

"From the music creators standpoint, the Type 20 MK2 is a reliable and comfortable benchmark whether that's engineering, producing, or tracking."

Iconic compact 3-way active monitor with DSP

With 7" woofers, a dedicated 4" driver for the midrange, and HEDD's very own high definition Air Motion Transformer (HEDD AMT), this compact and uber-flexible 3-way system offers plenty of power, dynamics, and openness even at very high levels. It can be used in the near- and midfield and is suitable for literally every thinkable studio challenge, may it be mixing, producing, the fine art of recording or in depth mastering. 

Just like the other MK2 models, the TYPE 20 MK2 is a powerhouse of innovation: A powerful SHARC-DSP enables the onboard Lineariser® to completely flatten the speaker phase and create a fascinating stereo image and depth. In addition, the speaker supports our latest Closed or Ported (CoP) technology. You can choose between two distinct sound options: For experiencing the maximum in accuracy and detail insert the customized foam plugs into the bass port and choose the Closed-mode. For the ability to run the speakers at higher volumes and maintain energy and access to low bass, „Open“ (no plugs) is the way to go.

Other great features include 3 distinct Desktop filters, 2 Shelving filters to further adapt the speakers to your room, and a Bass-Extension mode that lets you access even lower frequency areas (at the cost of some SPL). All the controls of the new line can be accessed via stepped aluminum potentiometers.

The TYPE 20 MK2 is available in black and white!

HEDD Air Motion Transformer

Our AMT was designed to deliver impeccable transient response and ultra-high frequency extension. This unique driver is handmade in Berlin to ensure the highest quality possible.

Our design of the Air Motion Transformer is known for transparent and linear high frequencies that do not distort the natural sound reproduction in any way.

HEDD Lineariser®

Our HEDD Lineariser® is fully integrated into the HEDD Type 20 MK2 monitors. With the phase linearity enabled we can solve time-related delays with a non-perceivable short reaction of 10ms. Effectively, this improves transients and imaging precision. For the first time, the phase correction can be synched with our HEDD BASS subwoofer range to compensate for group delay in a sat-sub system. Of course, the HEDD Lineariser® is optional and can be disengaged.

CoP: Closed or Ported

Like most monitors, the Type 20 MK2 speakers are based on a Ported base system that allows for a voluminous bass response with impressive extension. However, the same speakers can transform into a functionally new design with the flip of a switch and the use of the included plugs. The newly introduced Closed operation mode benefits from the extensive research that went into our reference monitoring system, the HEDD Tower Mains. With sealed bass ports, the Type 20 MK2 exceed expectations of bass precision and offers a new level of texture details and low-end harmonics.

A beautiful set of speakers to mix, work long hours on with little fatigue and maintain excellent translation to other listening environments. Compact in size, yet packing some real punch across the spectrum, they feel like a speaker much bigger than they actually are… a pleasure to listen to.
