Klaus Heinz and his son Frederik Knop founded the Berlin-based family business 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. 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.
HEDD’s innovative studio monitors connect newest analog loudspeaker technology with the requirements of a contemporary, that is, hybrid digital/analog audio workspace. 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.
The Type 07 from HEDD is a near field active monitor. This model come with a 7” woofer, a HEDD Air Motion Transformer tweeter and a 2x100w amplifier. The frequency response is extremely well balanced, the sound is precise and transparent. The Type 07 monitor sounds much bigger and more mature than its moderate size and sleek design make it appear. It is precisely for this reason that there is hardly a field of audio production, which the Type 07 is not ideally suited for. Its clever design makes it an especially good player in broadcasting contexts as well as in recording and mix-down studios.
