KNS 8402


Headphones for Educated Ears

KRK KNS 8402 headphones provide an accurate listening experience in a highly durable package that is perfect for a variety of uses. The closed-back, circumaural ("around the ear") design provides up to 30 dBA of isolation, which significantly reduces headphone "bleed" into the microphones when recording. The excellent isolation performance also lets you focus on the music, without distraction from external sounds. With a maximum SPL of 124 dB, they're capable of providing all the level you'll ever need while remaining clear and detailed sounding, with very low distortion. KRK headphones are a reference that professional engineers trust. Their accurate frequency response, excellent stereo imaging, and consistent KRK voicing means that you can rely on them for the most critical listening applications. Their impact-resistant plastic construction makes them lightweight, yet durable, and with their field-replaceable parts, including the pads and cable, they are in it for the long haul. The form-fitting, memory foam pads mean you'll be able to wear them for hours without fatigue, too. Since they're so comfortable, and so well suited for a variety of uses, both in and out of the studio–tracking, editing, mixing, general listening–they'll quickly become your favorite headphones!
