Manufacturer's Description from HEDD

HEDD introduces the first full-range Air Motion Transformer headphones. Designed by loudspeaker-veteran Klaus Heinz (Founder of ADAM & HEDD) and build from scratch in Berlin Germany, the HEDD Air Motion Transformer is a unique transducer that HEDD believes delivers a more musical and true-to-the-source audio performance. Bysqueezing the air out of a multiple Kapton® folds, it allows to move air significantly faster than any traditional dynamic, electrostatic or planar magnetic driver, resulting in a more accurate transient response and stereo imaging. This makes the HEDDphone® suitable for both, music creation and high-end listening.

 

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, 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 founder and CTO Klaus Heinz designed the first compact and marketable AMT tweeter based on American-German Physicist Oskar Heil’s original Air Motion Transformer invention. Since then, Heinz has increased its sonic quality in several fundamental revisions for his loudspeaker tweeter designs at ADAM Audio and HEDD.

In 2019 Heinz has started 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® technology (Variable Velocity Transform). It introduces a new, variable diaphragm geometry that expands the AMT principle to a linear full range (10Hz–40kHz) headphone transducer.

The HEDDphone® 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.

About Manufacturer

Physicist Klaus Heinz and his son, Mastering Engineer / Musicologist Dr. Frederik Knop founded HEDD | Heinz Electrodynamic Designs in October 2015. As acoustic professional and music enthusiast, Heinz’ life oscillates between the worlds of physics and sound. He is the founder of several renowned companies, among them loudspeaker manufacturer ADAM Audio, as whose Managing Director and Head of Research & Development he served for many years. For the past forty years, Klaus Heinz has dedicated himself to developing high-end loudspeakers that have become established constants in diverse fields: from music production processes in professional recording and mastering studios to radio broadcasting, installation and finally home HiFi, his loudspeakers can be found in a great variety of contexts. Despite their application in diverse tonal and professional contexts, Heinz’ loudspeaker designs have always stayed true to the same ideal of sonic excellence: they have, above all, always aimed to produce complete accuracy and outstanding signal fidelity while being less concerned with tinging recording audio material with pleasing tonal colors. It comes, therefore, as no surprise that the product development department at HEDD | Heinz Electrodynamic Designs is fully committed to the idea of creating versatile and surgically precise studio monitors that producers and sound engineers from a wide array of musical branches can use as tools for their audio monitoring processes. HEDD’s loudspeakers can thus be understood as the newest and most advanced products that Klaus Heinz and his team have developed over the years.

 

Not only are HEDD’s loudspeakers produced in Berlin, they also feature an unprecedented level of digital signal optimization (HEDD Lineariser®) and connectivity (HEDD Bridge), improved diaphragm materials as well as ultra-efficient amplifiers. Last but not least, these brand-new studio monitors take another technological step in the development of the Air Motion Transformer. Years ago, Heinz revolutionized the professional world of audio production by introducing his first Air Motion Transformer. Today, AMT systems are used wherever an extremely precise and vivid reproduction of high frequency material is called for.

The HEDD team consists of musicians and loudspeaker nerds, electrical engineers, graphic designers, and admin pros, all of whom are fully committed to the creation of this new brand.
