Metal fans deserve their own pair of HEAVYS headphones, designed specifically for the frequency range and dynamics found on metal recordings. The company’s goal: to allow you to experience pure evil without risking damage to your ears. The response to the Kickstarter Campaign was overwhelming, already surpassing twenty times the funding target. These heavy metal cans are made in Germany and come equipped with Bluetooth, microphones, and their very own patented loudness technology built-in.
The legend of HEAVYS headphones
The development of HEAVYS was headed up by Axel Grell, an engineer who was on the team behind the acclaimed Sennheiser HD series headphones. With over 27 years of experience in headphone development, Grell has sought to create an unprecedented listening tool for metal fans worldwide. The project began in 2020 with an uncompromising attitude of holding nothing back. The system consists of 8 total drivers – four per ear – which is double the spec of most headphones in this class. A crossover system allocates a single driver for low frequencies and another for midrange, while the remaining 2 are dedicated to treble. Unlike most headphone designs, the drivers are positioned directly in front of the auricle, rather than on the side, which produces an incredibly realistic stereo image.
As most musicians – especially metal musicians – know, exposure to high volume levels can damage your hearing over time. With HEAVYS headphones, the hearing protection technology carries a registered patent. The amount of research and development Grell and his team has put into this area will ensure you blow your mind rather than your ears in the listening process. Use these headphones for up to 50 hours wirelessly with Bluetooth 5.1 BLE, or plugged in with a standard mini-jack, or USB-C cable – which also charges them. A dual-microphone system is also installed, allowing you to pair as a headset with your devices.
On the HEAVYS Kickstarter page, the advertised price per pair is $149 plus $15 shipping, with a 2 pair package going for $269. We should be able to place our orders from around August or September this year, and after that they will retail for $219 in stores. For those who truly wish to pledge themselves to the cause, you’ll be able to get your own HEAVYS sledgehammer as soon as it’s back in stock.
