10 years ago this year Russ Hughes started the AIR Users blog, which morphed into Pro Tools Expert in 2012. To celebrate our 10-year anniversary we ran a competition with a Pro Audio gear and software prize pot worth over $28,000. One of the prizes was a bundle from our friends at ADAM Audio.
The competition closed on December 31st 2018 and we can announce that the winner is Conor Kearney.
“I have worked in a recording studio - XYZ Studio in Wescott - for 2 years as an audio engineer and am currently undertaking a Bsc Hons degree in Broadcast audio and music Technology at UWE Bristol. I'm still finding my feet in the audio world, undertaking as many projects in as many fields as I can. This includes TV pre and post production, Music, Dialog editing and field recording; as well as a little audio programming to boot.”
Here’s what ADAM Audio have to say about the SP-5 headphones:
“Its sound characteristics are best described as analytically precise, being developed to satisfy the exacting demands of pro audio monitoring and mixing. This premium headphone integrates Ultrasone´s S-LOGIC technology, employing transducers spatially arranged to exploit the natural form of the human ear and utilizing the natural acoustics of the wearer’s pinna to channel sound into the ear canal. The result is a superbly natural sound experience with startlingly realistic spatial imaging of a quality typical of a stereo monitoring system installed and calibrated by experts. This system makes mixing on the SP-5 easier than on traditional headphone designs that simply point directly at the ear canal.”
Closed back, cirumaural headphone with detachable cable
Gold plated 40 mm transducer
Impedance: 70 Ohm
Frequency Response: 8 Hz - 38 kHz
Sensitivity @ 1 mW per ear: 95 dB
S-LOGIC ® Plus technology
Another advantage of headphones deploying S-LOGIC technology is that they require less SPL to deliver the same subjectively experienced volume. This reduces distortion artefacts and avoids listening fatigue, making the SP-5 an excellent choice for long mixing sessions. Great care has been taken to ensure that this headphone is comfortable to wear for extended periods.
ADAM Audio developed the SP-5 in collaboration with the Bavarian company Ultrasone, a manufacturer famed for its decades of experience in first-class quality headphones ‘Made in Germany’. ADAM Audio’s speaker technology experts put the transducers selected for the SP-5 through an intensive re-voicing process to give the SP-5 its own special character that mirrors the unmistakably precise ADAM Audio sound.
