With demand for comprehensive immersive monitoring setups soaring, we have teamed up with German studio monitor manufacturer HEDD to provide a one-stop shop solution for mounting the renowned speakers.
Next-level immersive audio: IsoAcoustics and HEDD
Immersive audio introduces new challenges to speaker setups, in particular when it comes to mounting the ceiling speakers. As the information provided by these speakers is often crucial to the sense of space, and contains very minute details and acoustic cues, immaculate playback quality is paramount. We have collaborated with Berlin-based speaker manufacturer HEDD to present a tailor-fitted solution for ceiling- or wall-mounting the TYPE series monitor speakers.
The results are special brackets in combination with the V120 mount from IsoAcoustics – a fusion that competently achieves next-level immersive audio playback.
Just my TYPE: HEDD studio monitor speakers
Since 2015, Heinz Electrodynamic Design or HEDD has supplied the audio production industry with highly accurate monitor speakers that aim to recreate sound as lifelike as possible. The real history behind HEDD is a lot longer, though: founder and namesake Klaus Heinz has been an integral part of the industry for decades, with his most famous contribution being the air motion transformer or AMT introduced by his previous company ADAM back in 1999. If there is an AMT in a speaker, chances are its design relates back to Klaus Heinz’s work.
Today, HEDD offers a comprehensive portfolio of studio monitor speakers across all size categories and integrating more innovative, proprietary technology like CoP, which allows users to decide and switch between ported and closed speakers, and the HEDD Lineariser, which optimizes phase coherence in systems with subwoofers. HEDD speakers are used in studios around the world, the company has equipped Dolby Atmos rooms in Germany, France, the UK, Korea and the USA. Its commitment to sound and material quality has earned the manufacturer a reputation of great esteem among professionals.
Upgrade for every speaker: IsoAcoustics isolation technology
While IsoAcoustics speaker isolation and its astonishing effect on playback clarity has been well established, the recent development of the V120 Mount has made this ground-breaking technology available for wall- and ceiling-mounted speakers as well. Whether mounted directly to the ceiling or to truss-structures, the V120 Mount makes sure that no resonances smear the sound image in the room. Perfect clarity and transparency – and just the ideal upgrade for already outstanding speakers like the HEDD studio monitors.
Special mounting adapters for HEDD speakers
While the IsoAcoustics V120 is generally available independent of speaker manufacturer, the cooperation between IsoAcoustics and HEDD has led to specially designed adapters and mounting brackets for the HEDD models TYPE 05 MK2, TYPE 07 MK2, TYPE 20 MK2 and TYPE 30 MK2. The innovative U brackets are shaped in a way that allows for installing the brackets first and then lifting the monitor into place. The bolt threads slide into place in the slotted holes of the U brackets and can then be fixed into position to ensure perfect sound direction. To compensate for the speaker’s weight, the TYPE 30 MK2 solution uses two V120 isolators. Brilliant speakers perfectly mounted and positioned – the cooperation between IsoAcoustics and HEDD is a serious upgrade for anyone considering an immersive audio setup.
