Engineered by decades of Sennheiser expertise, these advanced headphones are equipped to handle all the complexities of modern music production, mixing and mastering.

With an Open-back Design That Allows Precise Localization

Feel immersed in your mix with the open-back architecture of the HD 490 PRO. This design delivers a comprehensive, precise and intelligibly defined audio experience, significantly aiding in the identification and resolution of issues related to panning placement and conflicting frequencies. The open-back allows for extremely accurate localization, ensuring your mixes translate flawlessly. The Sennheiser Open-frame design also reduces total harmonic distortion for honest and dynamic sound reproduction.

With Innovative Transducer Technology That Captures Each Subtlety

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 work together to deliver full, accurate and clearly defined bass, helping you pinpoint and resolve troublesome low-end frequencies. Achieve enhanced clarity across the full spectrum with Sennheiser's advanced transducer technology, engineered to capture every detail and subtlety that makes up your unique sonic vision.

With a Lightweight, Flexible Design for all-day Comfort

Meticulously crafted in Germany with durable yet lightweight components, the HD 490 PRO lets music flow for hours without fatigue. Careful ergonomic engineering eliminates pressure points while the open-back design allows natural ventilation. Earpads designed for mixing or production provide unique sound signatures to match your needs. Both are washable and replaceable for sustainability. Feel the music and forget you have headphones on with the supreme comfort of the HD 490 PRO.

With Immersive Monitoring Powered by Advanced Spatial Audio

The included dearVR MIX-SE plugin from Dear Reality places you in the ideal "sweet spot", turning your DAW into an immersive virtual mixing room.
