Headfonics sum up that HEDDphone "is not a planar sound, neither dynamic nor electrostatic, but it successfully mixes some of the best traits of each to paint a massive presentation, huge depth, and wonderful clarity". Actually, Ear Fidelity highly recommended it after an in-depth comparison with run-of-the-mill planar brands.
SoundStage! were "pleasantly surprised that HEDD Audio could produce such versatile and good-sounding headphones in their first try". The Headphone List concluded HEDDphone is a "highly ambitious product whose meticulous realisation equally rewards in real-world performance as in theoretical design".
Indeed, HEDDphone earned an Editors' Choice Award on
Part-Time Audiophile for "its sound is rich and delightful". The measurements corroborate this for Headphone Guru to call them "an outstanding tour de force" with " such a transparent and true-to-life listening experience".
Stereophile's Herb Reichert found its pairing with Feliks Audio's Euforia amplifier particularly enriching. Clearly, Heinz Electrodynamic Designs (HEDD) utilised their expertise in speaker tweeter design to perfectly execute this transducer technology in headphones for the first time ever.
