Sound & Recordingreviewed ADAM Audio SP-5 Studio-Headphones


Dr. Andreas Hau, writing for Sound & Recording, reviewed the ADAM Audio SP-5 studio headphones and drew the following conclusion:

  • “The SP-5 is exceptionally good at uncovering sound artefacts such as MP3 compression. Even sharp sibilants are exposed relentlessly.”
  • “The treble is radiant and very open – unusual for a closed headphone.”
  • “It combines good sound insulation with unusually delicate reproduction, making it one of the few closed headphones that are also suitable for mixing.”

“The Adam Studio Pro SP-5 is a sophisticated headphone with similar sound characteristics to the Adam monitor speakers: clear, radiant highs, open mids and clearly contoured basses.”
