The Type 07 studio monitor could be described as a classic nearfield monitor speaker, although that would not nearly do justice to its versatility and powerful sound. On first glance, this model’s standard size and classic setup with a 7” woofer and a HEDD Air Motion Transformer do not leave much room for additional technological advances.
Yet the careful adjustment of its various components, particularly the way in which casing, amplifier, and diaphragm interconnect, creates a degree of sonic stability, strength, spatiality, and transparency that amazed us from the very first stages of this model’s development on. With its 2×100 Watt amps and its extremely well balanced frequency response, the Type 07 monitor sounds much bigger and more mature than its moderate size and sleek design make it appear. It is precisely for this reason that there is hardly a field of audio production, which the Type 07 is not ideally suited for: its clever design makes it an especially good player in broadcasting contexts as well as in recording and mix-down studios.
The Hedd Air Motion Transformer (AMT) is a design by Klaus Heinz and based on an early invention by the German-American physicist Oskar Heil. It reproduces high-frequency material with incredible detail and dynamic accuracy. This combination of unique and expertly chosen components and analog filters and our years of experience in matching these different components together perfectly complement results in an almost linear frequency response and excellent signal fidelity from Hedd's studio monitors.
The Hedd Type 07, like the other Series ONE studio monitors, is equipped with a slot for an optional card. This gives the possibility to provide the monitor with a digital connection in addition to the standard analog XLR and RCA connections. These Hedd Bridge modules are available for AES3 / EBU, Dante or Ravenna (AES67). Thus, the monitor will optimally match every setup.
