Product Information

Sennheiser HD 490 PRO Headphones

Headphones built for today’s music
Music has changed. Technological advancements such as complex parameter automation, computing power, and dramatically enhanced audio resolution now enable producers and mixing engineers to push their creative limits in ways never before seen or heard. 

With this increased creative horsepower comes increased complexity — and the potential for audio blind spots like crowded, muddy mixes with competing frequencies.

All of this makes your choice of headphones more important than ever. You need advanced headphones that can capture all the subtleties that could make or break your mix.

The perfect mix of clarity, comfort, and reliability
Harnessing decades of Sennheiser engineering expertise, HD 490 PRO headphones are equipped to handle all the complexities of today’s music production, mixing, and mastering. Featuring an open-back design that delivers an extremely wide, dimensional sound stage and ultra-precise sound reproduction, HD 490 PRO studio headphones give you the clarity you need for critical listening, so you can make important mixing decisions with confidence.

Full-spectrum audio accuracy
Achieve enhanced clarity and balance in your masters with Sennheiser's innovative Open-frame Architecture, delivering a comprehensive, precise, and intelligibly defined audio experience. This advancement significantly aids in the identification and resolution of issues related to panning placement and conflicting frequencies, ensuring a more refined final master.

At the core of each HD 490 PRO earcup is a state-of-the-art neodymium magnet and an innovative low-frequency cylinder. These components synchronize and work together to deliver full, accurate, and clearly defined bass, helping you pinpoint and resolve troublesome low-end frequencies that can hinder the achievement of meticulously clear mixes and masters.

Includes dearVR MIX-SE Virtual Mixing Plugin
HD 490 PRO mixing headphones also include the innovative dearVR MIX-SE plugin from Dear Reality, placing you in the “sweet spot” and turning your DAW into an ultimate virtual mixing environment. dearVR MIX-SE simulates the carefully designed acoustics of ideal mixing studios, helping you ensure a balanced, consistent translation of your mix on different systems.

All-day comfort and long-term durability
Handcrafted and German-engineered with built-to-last components and a lightweight, flexible design, HD 490 PRO lets you feel the music and forget about the headphones. Carefully engineered ergonomics eliminate pressure points while the open-back design provides natural ventilation, making hours in the music feel like minutes. 

Two sets of switchable ear pads, each with a unique sound signature for long hours of mixing and producing, eliminate ear fatigue and are designed with sustainability and durability in mind — they’re both washable and replaceable.

HD 490 PRO helps you achieve your full creative vision by eliminating audio blind spots, putting you in full control of every detail, and ensuring accurate playback beyond the studio.
