It’s all in the mix, Sennheiser launches HD 400 PRO studio headphones
WEDEMARK, GERMANY - Media OutReach - 3 December 2021 - Audio specialist Sennheiser launches a new pair of
professional headphones for mixing, editing, and mastering. The HD 400 PRO
studio reference headphones are an ideal companion for creators seeking natural
and precise sound reproduction to accurately assess their audio mixes. To ease
long sessions, the HD 400 PRO features a comfortable and lightweight
open-back design fitted with soft velour ear pads. The unit includes both
coiled and straight detachable cables, allowing the headphones to adapt to
different use preferences.
happy to introduce the first open studio headphones in Sennheiser's PRO line,"
commented Gunnar Dirks, Product Manager, Professional Audio. "When editing and
mixing, you need detail and honesty, and this is what the HD 400 PRO will give
you. Thanks to their linear, high-resolution reproduction, these headphones are
a reliable reference to create outstanding audio mixes."
Designed for accuracy
The HD 400 PRO
features a wide frequency response of 6 to 38,000 hertz to give music producers
the full account of their mix. The Sennheiser-developed 120-ohm transducers
include a diaphragm made from a special polymer blend, which together with
powerful driver magnets yields deeper, yet totally clear and well-defined bass.
Distortion is below 0.05% (measured at 1 kHz, 90 dB SPL).
The HD 400 PRO
accurately reproduces audio beyond the audible frequency range, giving you
unbridled access to nuanced harmonics and ambiance in your music, while at the
same time revealing a bold, articulate low-end.

headphones help you to reveal all the tiny details in your music
transducers of the HD 400 PRO sit at a slight angle, carefully recreating the
optimum triangular listening position you would place yourself in when
listening to monitor loudspeakers in a recording studio. In addition, the
open-back design of the HD 400 PRO ensures a natural propagation of sound,
unimpeded by the acoustic structures required in closed-back designs. Both
aspects create a wide and spacious soundstage, neutral and transparent, which
enables audio producers to work confidently knowing that their final mix
transfers accurately to listeners.
Designed for comfort
The HD 400 PRO
headphones feature high comfort that prolongs creativity. A carefully
engineered ultra-light frame positions the earcups in place, gently hugging the
ears with minimal pressure. Soft velour earpads allow users to focus on
projects for hours on end, while the open, circumaural design offers sufficient
ventilation for ears to keep their cool, even during long mixing sessions.
The HD 400 PRO is
available now and retails at HKD 1749 (MSRP). The headphones come with a
3-meter coiled cable and a 1.8-meter straight cable, both fitted with a 3.5 mm
(1/8") jack plug for portable sources. A 6.3 mm (1/4") adapter is included,
ensuring that the HD 400 PRO connects to your mixing desk or audio interface.
