Building on the success of its High-frequency Head and Torso Simulator Type 5128 – and responding to popular demand – Brüel & Kjær’s new tabletop version has been developed to support customers testing headphones on their work desk or in small anechoic chambers.

Tabletop HATS (Type 5128-B) is a torso-less head, which comes with a small desk stand. Its adjustable neck makes it suitable for testing all types of headphones and it can be also be fitted on a tripod or a turntable using a tripod mounting adapter.
