Hercules completes its line of headphones announced last Christmas with the stylish and comfortable HDP DJ-Adv G401 model headphones
New York - September 27, 2012- Hercules, the leader in mobile DJ controllers for PC/Mac® and computer audio expert, is proud to announce its latest model headphones, the HDP DJ-Adv G401. The new stylish and comfortable model, designed for amateur DJs, completes the line of headphones unveiled by Hercules last Christmas.
The HDP DJ-Adv G401 headphones feature all of the ingredients required to meet the demands of DJs and music enthusiasts, including perfect audio fidelity, pleasant and powerful sound, flawless sound insulation and comfort.
Stylish and trendy, the HDP DJ-Adv G401 headphones feature a mechanical design very similar to Hercules’ professional models, the HDP DJ-Pro M1001 and the HDP DJ-Adv G501. The HDP DJ-Adv G401 circumaural closed-back headphones’ silhouette traces a continuous curve from one earpiece to the other, avoiding pressure on the user’s head, while at the same time perfectly shielding the DJ from external sounds.
Suited for both large and smaller heads, the headphones cause no strain, even during prolonged use. The earpieces rotate around three axes, enabling DJs to preview their mix with one ear or fold the headphones away for convenient storage and transport.
Also designed for previewing and mixing, the HDP DJ-Adv G401 offers a frequency response ranging from 15 Hz to 22 kHz - an audio spectrum wide enough to gauge tracks precisely and hone last-second settings before airing the music to the audience. The 50 mm diameter drivers produce clear sounds, with precise and deep bass, making them not only ideal for analyzing rhythms, but also for simply enjoying music.
Their low impedance (32 ohms) and high sensitivity (100 dB @ 1 mW) ensure powerful sound levels, enabling DJs to listen to tracks even in the loudest environments - for instance, next to PA system speakers.
The Hercules HDP DJ-Adv G401 will be available late October 2012, at a suggested retail price of $79.99.
