As you might expect - Heed have approached loudspeaker design from a refreshingly alternate premise by embracing the non-directional speaker concept as a 'high art'. Despite the fact that the same attention to carefully selected parts, cross-overs and 'established' technology (such as transmission line technology in the speaker line up) feature as per all Heed Audio products, the concept and finalisation of this art is discerningly different.
Conventional speaker systems, however, cannot faithfully recreate music as we hear it in a live setting. No matter how large or expensive they are, whatever type of cabinet design, drive units, cone materials, toe-in, or crossover techniques are implemented, directional speakers will always YELL in your face, to a certain extent.
Heed Audio, favour loudspeakers with a non-directional radiation pattern. Like a live performance they are best able to simply let the music into the room. Designed and engineered for a uniquely open and holographic presentation makes it even more detailed, transparent and tangible. As such; a breathtakingly realistic reproduction of music in all its facets, spaciousness and immediacy beckons, and a style of reproduction that can cast a spell over the listener as the best live performance would.
The range from Enigma, Grand Enigma and the lofty Envoy have been conceptualised to put the 'fleshy' part of the equation at the centre of the musical stage (and not the speaker itself - literally speaking). Unconventional? Definitely. Pointless technical absurdity? Definitely not. Heed have just made them for our 'human sense of hearing'.
