454 Headpod

Professional Monitoring for ALL headphone types

If the headphone output on your existing gear just isn’t loud and clear enough, or you need multiple headphone outputs with independent level controls, the Model 454 HeadPod delivers.

But the HeadPod gives you more than just volume. It’s designed to deliver clean, clear, undistorted sound at any level – ideal for long periods of listening without fatigue.

The HeadPod’s input signal can be fed from separate balanced connections, or a single extension from your existing headphone output. Since it places no load on your existing headphone output, your audio will actually sound better through the HeadPod.

Four fully independent amplifiers ensure maximum efficiency with minimum crosstalk and distortion, even when all four outputs have completely different sets of headphones connected. Housed in a rugged, all-steel chassis, the HeadPod is ready for any environment from the desktop to the rehearsal room, with its optional mic stand bracket.

Whether you’re a musician, audio engineer, broadcaster, or just tired of old, tired headphone outputs, the HeadPod is for you.
