These Neumann NDH 20 closed-back over-ear headphones are an ideal aid for analytical sound applications such as recording, editing and mixing in studio environments. They do a good job at the deepest depths of the bass range, while also performing brilliantly when it comes to midrange differentiation. Additionally, a more discreet performance in the highs results in a less pronounced stereo image, a lower transient definition and a more extensive depth graduation. Those looking into this particular piece of hardware from Neumann will likely be satisfied with these specs, although they still take a little while to get used to. Quality of materials, manufacturing, detail and design are all exemplary. Here, these Neumann headphones inspire all round. Thanks to interchangeable cables and high sensitivity, these headphones are not only suitable for studio and professional applications, but can also be used as a hi-fi listening aid and for use on the go. With all that in mind, the NDH 20 has a price/performance ration that’s perfectly in order.
