Move and Be Moved By the New Sennheiser Headphones

I have the Sennheiser HD299 headphone and love its noise-cancelling feature. I get to listen to my favorite music in peace without being disturbed by outside sounds. Last Friday, Sennheiser launched two new products for music lovers at the Seda Hotel located in Bonifacio Global City.

MOMENTUM lets upscale audiophiles experience sound with all their senses. It is perfect for those who are unwilling to compromise on sound quality and style. It is made with high-quality materials that combine design and luxurious textures along with wearability and comfort. The headband and ear pads use soft and supple leather from traditional English tannery Pittards while the headband slider is made out of premium stainless steel. 

The soaring sounds that come out of these headphones are pure and unadulterated, it can make a listener feel like he's sitting next to the performing artist as he hears all the nuances of the emotions set through in song.

All current media players can be connected to the Momentum using the 3.5mm stereo plug. If you have an Apple product, you can use the additional cable with integrated smart remote and microphone. There are buttons integrated into the metal casing when you want to adjust the volume, select music titles, take calls, and activate voice control. This highly stylish headphone comes in brown and black versions. 

Rajender Mogili, Product Manager at Sennheiser Consumer Electronics, acknowledged that their passion for perfection is apparent not only in the outstanding technology used in the Momentum, but also in its modern distinctive design and selected premium materials. "With striking yet minimalistic design, it makes the Momentum the perfect accessory for those keen to display a passion for quality audio with a discrete and stylist authority."The Momentum retails for P19,300.

On the other hand, the IE 800 headphones are said to be the ones with the most innovations per square millimeter thus, it can compete with much larger high-end headphones. Since it is brimming with groundbreaking ideas, audiophiles and music lovers can get as close as possible to perfect sound even when they're on the move.

In the past, ear-canal phones have been known to have limits when it comes to audio quality. But the IE 800 is setting new standards as Sennheiser rounds off its top segment with a set of genuinely high-end portable headphones. Maurice Quarre, Director of Product Lifecycle Management, affirmed that, "The sound of the IE 800 can easily compete with that of our high-end portfolio."

The dynamic in-ear headphones boast of brilliant trebles, precise bass response, and a detailed, life-like sound image with a frequency response of 5 to 46,500 Hertz. This is made possible by the Extra Wide Band (XWB) driver developed by Sennheiser "to perfectly reproduce the entire audible frequency spectrum and beyond,"explained senior acoustic engineer Axel Grell. He added that, before, reproducing the entire audio spectrum requires several narrow band drivers to be operated in parallel but results in very slight jumps and delays in music production. "[But with the XWB], music is played back with crystal clarity and with absolute time precision." Wow!

Aside from its innovative technology, the IE 800 further features a modern design using high-quality materials like the scratch-resistant ceramic housing and ear pads made with skin friendly silicone that rules out any risk of allergies or skin irritation for excellent wearing comfort. To guarantee a perfect fit, Sennheiser has also developed oval-shaped ear adapters based on extensive international studies in ergonomics. Still, users can choose from the selection of oval and round adapters according to their personal preferences. The ear cushions have a protective mesh to effectively protect the drivers against dirt contamination. This revolutionary headset retails at PhP 45,900.
