Sound on Sound Review - May 2019
"The more I used them, the more I appreciated that what I heard initially heard as a flat and unexciting sound is actually just the absence of distortion... When I took mixes that sounded good on both studio monitors and my usual headphones and played them on the NDH 20s, I found myself noticing resonances, unevenness and mud that I hadn't previously been aware of; and when I put the same mixes back on my other systems afer EQ'ing them on the NDH 20s, there was a real improvement..."
"What Neumann's engineers have done is to take seriously the goal of creating headphones specifically for studio use. This is absolutely not a hi-fi design repurposed with a new paint job and a different model number, but a tool designed from the ground up to meet the needs of recording engineers... The headphone market is a crowded one, and these are not cheap, but Neumann have located a niche for a genuinely studio-focused design - and the NDH 20s fill that niche very successfully."
