The studio monitoring headphones optimized for voice work. Now even better! Our Signature Series VOHP 'Cans' - The Voice Over headphones 2.0.
While musicians and many consumers choose headphones because of their eardrum rattling bass, open back and on the-ear-design they are a poor choice for voice work. We need to hear the clear, transparent & honest sound of our voices without artifice and affectation. Because we often take direction while speaking we need a closed back, completely over-the-ear design so no leakage or feedback ruins our performance. And we need an extra degree of wearing comfort, since voice talents spend many hours with headphones on; performing, narrating and often, editing.
Our Voice Optimized headphones 2.0 provide both that accurate, transparent sound with enhanced mid-rage audio, a less bass AND the creature-comforts voice workers deserve.
The over-the-ear closed back ear shells are crafted of aluminum - not the more common plastic - to prevent sound "leakage." These phones are amazingly comfortable even in long sessions thanks not only to their weight (barely more than half a pound) but also because of the soft supple leather - not vinyl - ear-pads filled with eyeglass-friendly Memory Foam. The thicker padded leather-lined headband, stainless steel telescopic arms and auto adjusting non-magnetic manganese steel frame hugs - not hurts - your head.
A non-tangling left side connected combination straight to coiled cord stretches from 5 to 10 feet terminating in two gold plated 3.5mm mini plugs. And an included 1/4 inch screw-on adapter let's you connect to studio standard audio gear. Because there is always a chance a headphone cord could be accidentally puled loose our 2.0 design includes a mini-jack on the headphones themselves making cord replacement in seconds. Because many pros - including me - prefer to monitor their performance with only one ear, both earpieces rotate up 180 degrees. An included leatherette felt-lined storage tote completes the package.
Finally, headphones designed with voice performers in mind - detailed, accurate voice reproduction without a booming bass or shrill high end - coupled with engineering that makes them an absolute joy to wear.
I just received my Harlan Hogan Voice Optimized Head phones. I took them out of the box to find a gray velvet covering the phones and a black bag to put them in. Total Class with the "wrapping" in the box. Then..... I put them on and oh man they are comfortable and wrap around my ears and could hear nothing. Then.... I plugged them in and listened to one of my Chapters that I am doing, "Sea Raptor". Unbelievable sound and I even had to turn the volume down from where the setting was for my other head phones!
"I do a TON of voice over editing and mixing, and wearing headphones for extended periods of time can be quite uncomfortable. Harlan has done it again! By using memory foam and real leather, these are the most comfortable phones I've worn - EVER! Not to mention the combo coiled cord and straight cord - best of both worlds!"

"I have already tried them out and love them!" ... I received your wonderful new signature voice over headphones and love them. I'm using these for my editing and to monitor my class live performances. They really make a difference in how you hear the nuances of a voice. I'm telling my students to get a set today and be ready to edit your voice with the precision of a professional.

Harlan Hogan's VO headphones are are really really cool! They sound great that's the bottom line and memory foam ear cups make them awesome, amazing & so comfortable!
Stacey Aswad & Chuck Duran, the hosts of VO Buzz Weekly
These are amazing! Its like I've never really heard my voice before! No really.. The new Harlan Hogan Signature Series Voice Optimized Headphones are in a word: A delightful departure from traditional studio headphones. I'm well known for recommending NOT using headphones for voice work for a number of reasons. But, Harlan has done his homework, looking at the flaws presented by standard cans for VO work and correcting them in spades! Recording engineers should always have traditional headphones to work with, but these are the ones to have if you do voice work.They're comfortable like no other phones I've worn. That's because Harlan used actual leather for the pads. They're also very light for their size as H2 had them and they your head like the phones are not even there.Sound: Clearly different from traditional studio headphones. The upper mid and highs are clear as a bell. No muffling or cross bleeding between frequencies; like a pair of studio monitors. The low is there, but at the same level as the rest of the spectrum. Very nice, and that cures the endorphin producing deep bass of your own voice. Yet, yet, the extreme low end - 200 Hz and below - is amazingly clear. I could hear my son running up the stairs from the basement 2 floors below so clearly, transparent and "dimensional" that it was startling! They clearly define the noise floor. You can hear the detail of anything that is not your voice. My mustache could be heard as I smiled ear to ear. Harlan, like your Porta-Booth series, and the VO: 1A studio condenser mic, you've hit a home run. The Home Studio Master gives the Harlan Hogan Signature Series Voice Optimized Headphones two thumbs WAYYYY up. The perfect headphones for a home voice-over studio!

I purchased the new Harlan Hogan earphones last week and love the sound and the quality. I love working and wearing them!

Hi Harlan, I received the Headphones today....Great Customer Service. Over the years I've done On Air, Studio Tracking, VO, and about every situation where you would use Cans. I've tried them all - trying to get that perfect fit. These are exceptional for VO & studio Tracking. The one thing I really like is that I can tell when I'm slightly off mic. I'm more aware of room noise. Good Job Harlan, you've come up with some great products. Keep it up!

Harlan, your headphones are great! The voicing is excellent, very smooth. Bravo.Celebrity-branded headphones are all the rage right now, so when Harlan showed up with his entry into the field, I was naturally a bit skeptical. However, these truly are studio grade headphones that I would use on a daily basis without reservation. I have to say they do sound as good as my other German made cans that cost nearly twice as much! These sound great on EVERYTHING, not just voice, with a very pleasing EQ curve that extends very deep, without getting boomy, and high without sounding harsh (like some Japanese cans that are pervasive in the studio world). The ear pads are large, soft, and seal out noise effectively, without clamping like a vise. Attention to detail is everywhere, with apparently very few costs spared, or wasted on "bling". Harlan, you've got another winner on your hands, the VOHP "Beats" the competition.
