The perfect blend of clarity, comfort and reliability.

Featuring an open-back design that delivers an extremely wide, dimensional sound stage and ultra-precise sound reproduction, HD 490 PRO gives you the clarity needed for your most critical decisions.

Full spectrum audio accuracy

You will achieve enhanced clarity and balance in your masters with Sennheiser's innovative Open-frame Architecture, which delivers 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.

Eliminate the blind spots in your productions

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.

The most comfortable headphones in Pro Audio

HD 490 PRO lets you feel the music and forget about the headphones. With a lightweight, flexible yet sturdy design, HD 490 PRO’s precision-engineered ergonomics eliminate pressure points while the open-back design provides natural ventilation, making hours in the music feel like minutes.

Game changing innovation with switchable, washable ear pads
