“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.”

The HD 400 PRO features a frequency response of 6 to 38,000 hertz, while the Sennheiser-developed 120-ohm transducers include a diaphragm made from a special polymer blend, which together with driver magnets, deliver well-defined bass. Distortion is below 0.05% (measured at 1 kHz, 90 dB SPL).
