Adam Audio has just launched its SP-5 headphones, the company’s first headphones meant for studio mixing and music production. Made in collaboration with popular audiophile brand Ultrasone, the SP-5 is a closed-back headphone that has special speaker drivers that disperse sound in a manner that takes advantage of the ear’s shape. Adam Audio says that this makes mixing with the SP-5 easier compared to traditional headphones, as well as more comfortable for extended sessions.
We’re massive fans of Adam Audio: we reviewed its T5V monitor speakers and gave them top marks, and I’ve always loved the signature sound of Adam Audio’s X-Art Tweeters found on higher end models. If these SP-5 cans continue the tradition of Adam Audio’s superb monitors, then these may possibly be the year’s best new studio headphones for DJ/producers. Watch out for our review of them soon.

• The Adam Audio SP-5 is available now for US$499. Check the Adam Audio site for more details.
