It is so light and comfortable that you can immerse yourself completely in the Mix and almost forget that you are wearing headphones. Its ergonomic design protects sensitive areas of the head and the open concept ensures adequate ventilation of the ears. So you can work for hours at Studio without getting tired.

Best features

The HD 490 PRO Plus comes with two different pairs of ear pads that have different sound signatures: one for mixing, the other for producing. Both are optimized for long periods of use and prevent fatigue. The ear pads are also washable and replaceable, which increases sustainability. In contrast to the Pro version, the Pro Plus also comes with an additional 3m headphone cable, a hard case and a headphone pad for replacement. As a bonus, you also get the innovative dearVR MIX-SE plugin from Dear Reality. This allows you to transform your DAW into the ultimate virtual mixing environment. dearVR MIX-SE simulates the perfectly tuned acoustics of an ideal stereo mixing studio. This means that Mix sounds consistently good on different playback systems.
