Neumann NDH 30 Open Back Studio Headphones

The Portable Sound Reference

The perfect headphones for editing, mixing and mastering, the NDH 30 is a circumaural, open-back headphone with outstanding detail resolution and high-precision stereo imaging with razor-sharp localization. Its linear soundstage and superior transient response recommend it for the most demanding applications.


Perfect Monitoring in Neumann Quality, Everywhere

The NDH 30 was developed with the aim of making the reference sound of a Neumann studio monitor setup, perfectly calibrated via the Neumann MA and available everywhere in the form of an easily transportable headphone. The NDH 30 also forms its own sound reference simultaneously in terms of headphone reproduction, which has become a key to success with consumers. With superior sound characteristics, the NDH 30 is the first choice for mixing and mastering. In addition to this, due to its high long-term comfort, it is perfectly suited to high-precision editing.

Its high-quality construction of spring steel and aluminium, as well as its excellent handling properties, are largely the same as those of the NDH 20. The NDH 30, however, is an open-back headphone, which means that its dynamic 38 mm transducers work as acoustic dipoles. This allows their highly refined sound characteristics to unfold optimally. This provides an extremely fast transient response, dry bass, uncoloured mids and transparent highs. This means the NDH 30 has no sound colouration but reproduces the signal 1:1.


Uncompromising Precision

The NDH 30 owes its superior linearity, among other things, to frequency-selective absorbers that eliminate the overemphasis in the high frequencies that leads to incorrect mixing decisions in many other headphones. For example, the NDH 30 will accurately reveal whether a voice sounds muffled or needs a de-esser.

Featuring an impressive spatial resolution, the NDH 30 allows razor-sharp localization in the stereo panorama and makes the depth of the mix evident. To minimize channel crosstalk, the NDH 30 is supplied with a high-quality cable that is internally balanced.


Part of a Successful Family

With the NDH 30's high linearity and detail resolution, it is perfectly compatible with a loudspeaker system that has been optimally calibrated using Neumann Automatic Monitor Alignment. Whether your mixes began at home, or on the road, using the NDH 30 can be seamlessly continued in the studio using KH-Line loudspeakers, and vice versa. As well as this, the NDH 30 is recommended as a headphone sound reference, headphones, after all, have long become the dominant playback system among consumers.

The NDH 30 is ideal for checking headphone compatibility and creating binaural mixes of immersive content (this includes VR and gaming). As consistency and reliability are essential in mixing and mastering, the NDH 30 is manufactured to extremely tight tolerances, so each headphone sounds the same.
