The HEDD TYPE 05 MK2 is the most compact active monitoring solution in our range of professional loudspeakers. With its small honeycomb 5’’ woofer and an ultra-high-precision AMT, it is a perfect fit for space-sensitive home studios, broadcast- and video editing suites.

Like its bigger siblings the TYPE 05 MK2 is powered by a powerful SHARC-DSP loaded with HEDD's latest innovation: The Lineariser prefects the stereo image and depth by perfecting the speaker phase. What is more, the two distinct CoP modes (Closed and Ported) let you choose between a clean and painstakingly accurate sound ("Closed") and the ability to run the speakers at significantly higher volumes while maintaining access to lower bass regions ("Open").

The entire MK2 range also boasts Desktop- and Shelving-filters to adapt the speakers to your studio space and a jaw-dropping Bass-Extension mode that lets you access even lower frequency areas. All controls have stepped aluminum pots, making speaker adjustments easy and repeatable.

The TYPE 05 MK2 offers analog XLR and a digital AES connection. It is available in black and white.

HEDD Air Motion Transformer

Our AMT was designed to deliver impeccable transient response and ultra-high frequency extension. This unique driver is handmade in Berlin to ensure the highest quality possible.

Our design of the Air Motion Transformer is known for transparent and linear high frequencies that do not distort the natural sound reproduction in any way.

HEDD Lineariser®

Our HEDD Lineariser® is fully integrated into the HEDD Type 05 MK2 monitors. With the phase linearity enabled we can solve time-related delays with a non-perceivable short reaction of 10ms. Effectively, this improves transients and imaging precision. For the first time, the phase correction can be synched with our HEDD BASS subwoofer range to compensate for group delay in a sat-sub system. Of course, the HEDD Lineariser® is optional and can be disengaged.

CoP: Closed or Ported

Like most monitors, the Type 05 MK2 speakers are based on a Ported base system that allows for a voluminous bass response with impressive extension. However, the same speakers can transform into a functionally new design with the flip of a switch and the use of the included plugs. The newly introduced Closed operation mode benefits from the extensive research that went into our reference monitoring system, the HEDD Tower Mains. With sealed bass ports, the Type 05 MK2 exceed expectations of bass precision and offers a new level of texture details and low-end harmonics.
