Thousand Oaks, CA (November 25, 2019)—Sterling Audio has shipped its new S400 and S450 headphones.
Aimed for use by recording engineers, the headphones are intended to be used for monitoring and remain comfortable when worn for extended periods of time. Both models feature Sterling’s high-definition transducers, which reportedly provide “an advanced soundstage for superior sound reproduction with intimate, mid-range clarity and articulate low- and high-frequency response.”
Sterling Audio S400 and S450 headphones employ a closed-back, circumaural design that delivers isolation. Both models provide removable, replaceable, and lockable ear cushions. Transportation and storage are aided by a foldable design with a collapsible earcup mechanism. The detachable 8-foot headphone cable has a twist lock 1/8-inch connector and ¼-inch adapter.
The Sterling S400’s 40 mm drivers use neodymium magnets and oxygen-free copper voice coils and can reportedly provide up to 101 dB SPL over an extended 15 Hz to 24 kHz frequency range. They can handle up to 60 mW of input power.
Meanwhile, the S450 uses 45 mm drivers with neodymium magnets and copper-clad aluminum-wire voice coils, extending the frequency response to 15 Hz to 28 kHz to aid with reference monitoring. The S450 can deliver up to 103 dB SPL and handle up to 100 mW of input power.
Both models offer rotatable ear cups for custom adjustment and single-ear monitoring. The S400 ear cups can rotate up to 90°, while the S450 ear cups can rotate up to 180°.
Sterling Audio S400 and S450 headphones are available for $69.99 and $99.99, respectively, at Guitar Center and at Musician’s Friend. As the house brand for both retailers, Sterling Audio produces various lines of recording studio solutions, including reference monitors, headphone amps, mic accessories and best-in-class tube, ribbon and FET microphones.
