SENNHEISER INTRODUCES AUDIOPHILE HD 800 HEADPHONES AT WINTER NAMM

hd_800_new.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 2009: A completely novel type of transducer and an innovative ear cup design are two of the key design features of Sennheiser’s new top-of-the-range HD 800 headphones being introduced at Winter NAMM 2009. This audiophile model, which is sure to remind high-end enthusiasts of the company’s legendary Orpheus headphones, offers brilliant sound imaging and impressive spatiality through the use of a 56mm sound transducer – currently the largest to be found in any dynamic headphones – and an ear cup design that directs sound waves to the ear at a slight angle.

The vibrating part of the diaphragm is not a circular surface area but a ring, which is able to set the entire air volume over the transducer into motion, generating the full-bodied sound of the HD 800. This annular design, patented by Sennheiser, solves the problems relating to the dynamic transducer principle for the first time. more

THE WHITE SPACE RULING: CHICKEN LITTLE CAN TAKE A DEEP SIGH OF RELIEF

joe_ciaudelli_new.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – NOVEMBER 2008: Following the recent ruling by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding proposed “white space” consumer devices, Sennheiser is taking steps to assure users of wireless audio products that the sky will not fall after February 17th (the deadline for the digital TV conversion).

As a first level, Sennheiser is offering a free initial consultation service via phone to answer questions from users or dealers and to address each individual situation. Anyone wishing to receive a call from an RF specialist regarding the operation of any wireless mic or monitoring equipment after February 17, 2009 may sign-up on the company’s dedicated website www.sennheiserusa.com/spectrumreallocation.
