Bangkok, 20 July 2016 – Audio specialist Sennheiser recently presented the Southeast Asian debut of HE 1, the new reference headphone system, that promises an unprecedented audio experience at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore. This successor of the legendary Orpheus is electrostatic headphone system combines a unique amplifier concept results in a frequency response of 8Hz to 100kHz – well above the limits of the human ear, which means that the audible range is virtually free of distortion. Sennheiser leaves no doubt that the exclusive HE 1 is the best headphone system in the world. In order to fully exploit the sound potential of the reference headphones. The HE 1 was crafted with carefully selected materials; amplifier housing was crafted from granular, inhomogeneous Carrara marble and is freely suspended with the amplifier. At the heart of the amplifier are eight vacuum tubes that process the incoming signal. The tubes themselves also have a high-quality patent-pending enclosure consisting of quartz-glass bulbs that perfectly shield them from their surroundings.
The headphones, fully made in Germany, include about 6,000 pieces that make up the Orpheus HE 1 each unit takes up to 400 man hours to build. The combination of outstanding technology, exquisite design and the highest-quality materials is also continued in the headphones themselves. The genuine leather ear cushions are crafted in Germany and ensure the highest possible comfort even over several hours. At the inner side of the cushions, hypoallergenic, breathable microfiber fabric provides additional acoustic absorption. All these materials form an ingenious combination of design, comfort and function – for a unique audio experience that appeals to all senses.
