    Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

    The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

    The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

    Mobile

    The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.

    Over-Ear Design

    The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.

    DJ Applications

    The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.

    Broadcast and Podcast

    The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.

    Swiveling and Rotating Earcups

    If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.

    10' Cable

    A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.

    Does it work with AT2020USB+?
    Asked by: Eduardo
    I believe it's more about the mounting screw/nut than it is about the mic. As long as you have the correct mount on the mic and it fits the arm, there will be no problem. If you run into a problem, you can very inexpensively change the mounting screw. But most are standard so there shouldn't be a problem. Since "Staff" answered the question more succinctly, I'd just go with that answer.

    Will this work with the Polsen RC 77 U?
    Asked by: Catherine Cook
    No, this mic cannot handle the weight of such a heavy, professional microphone. You'll need a custom solution using gaff tape and bailing wire. The metal of the boom arm will also cause interference with the USB electronics. I mostly can't believe you even asked such a stupid question.
