“KNS headphones are my personal go-to; they faithfully replicate what I’m listening to and quickly replaced my much more expensive pair,” says Sterling Doak, Director of Marketing for Gibson. “New and improved, we’ve taken our favorite headphones up a notch with a strong build and feather-weight comfort. For anyone from music hobbyists to professional engineers searching for a pair of professional headphones without breaking the bank, KNS is a fantastic option. Plus, with excellent isolation performance, KNS headphones let you focus on the music, without distraction from external sounds.”
The KNS 6402 model features acoustic cellular foam pads and provides up to 26 dBA of isolation with a 122 dB maximum SPL rating and a frequency response of 10 Hz-22 kHz. The KNS 8402 headphones feature memory foam pads with premium leatherette covers, offering superior comfort during long hours of listening and recording sessions. The KNS 8402 headphones provide up to 30 dBA of isolation to block out even more external noise and feature a slightly higher SPL with a 124 dB maximum SPL rating and a frequency response of 5 Hz-23 kHz. They also feature a cable with in-line volume control, further enhancing the user experience and providing a complete spectrum of volume level options.
Perfect for a range of applications, both in and out of the studio, KNS headphones feature a wide frequency response and dynamic range, excellent stereo imaging, and consistent voicing. With clear and detailed sound, KNS headphones have extremely low distortion, and the isolating foam pads significantly reduce any bleed into microphones when recording.
