'Rarely in nearly twenty years has one pice of kit had such a positive impact on my daily working life. All I can say is thank you Adaptear.'

John H - Hand-held RF Broadcast Cameraman

'As an independant music producer and mix engineer I found the HDM Pro enhanced headphones an excellent experience. I was skeptical at first, as any producer and mix engineer might be when told ' here is a set of headphones with a hearing dose management monitoring and protection device' fitted. To my surprise I found the listening experience both pleasent and inspiring, with no compromise to sound quality compared to my speaker monitoring system. Like many industry professionals in my position these days, we often find ourselves mixing at home due to budget restrictions. Sometimes, due to schedules, I may find myself having to mix late into the night but needing to restrict my speaker monitoring levels due to the close proximity of neighbours. The HD52's fitted with the HDM Pro system allowed me to carry on working at a good level without compromise to my surrounding or the final mix result.'

Phil Harding - Chair of JAMES, Songwriter, Music Producer, Lecturer

'A great device with no compromise to the quality of the sound.'
