Review: Neumann NDH 20
Non-engaging first attempt
Legendary microphone manufacturer fails to grab us with its first headphone model.
Neumann NDH 20
Appealing appearance, great aluminum finish and decent comfort. Seems to be a comfortable load on amplifiers, does not change sound very much from amplifier to amplifier.
The sound is dark, with too little detail at the top. It also sounds too sharp for our liking.
