Product Description

Sennheiser HE-1 Orpheus Flagship Headphones System is equipped with distinctive options and progressive technology these headphones rework music from something you hear into something you reside in.

Sennheiser Legacy

In 1991 Sennheiser created the greatest headphones in the world known as Orpheus. Now, they have done it once more. The unyielding philosophy remaining, Sennheiser HE1 features ethereal sound and unaltered beauty.

Beauty with Purpose

Sennheiser HE 1 has a stunning structure marrying function to form. The amp sits on a housing crafted from glass, and a solid block of Carrara marble. This luxury natural stone the kind famed by Michelangelo’s Renaissance sculptures lends beauty while preventing structure-borne noise. To form a visually striking style, management dials are fastidiously crafted to the very best quality. Each dial is processed from one piece of brass before being plated with chrome.

Lowest Distortion

You haven’t seen such beauty in headphones. Watch Sennheiser HE1 come to life with one touch –a fleeting pause allows the tubes to reach the optimum temperature. Then place the headphones on and travel into pure sound, to places hidden in your vinyl, CDs or high-res files. Sennheiser HE1 takes you there. Audio ranges from 8Hz to over 100kHz, and the lowest distortion ever measured during reproduction: 0.01% @1kHz, 100dB SPL.

Precious Metals

The relentless pursuit of perfection brings with it a individuality. Thus, the Sennheiser HE-1 is that the initial electrostatic headphone with a cool Category A MOS-FET high voltage amp integrated into the ear cups. Eliminating the cable’s capacitive reactance and delivering ultra-high impulse fidelity, it is two hundred percent more economical than any other alternative on the market. 2.4mm platinum-vaporised diaphragms are used as their size was shown by Sennheiser’s analysis to deliver optimum audio reproduction.

Outstanding electric and acoustic performance is ensured through gold-vaporised ceramic transducers, while 99.9% silver-plated OFC cables offer optimum conductvitty. To permit immersion in this, Sennheiser HE 1's ear cups are precision-machined from aluminium, with handcrafted ear pads of fine leather and a soft, allergen-free velour/microfibre build.

Everything but Compromises

HE1 delivers the benefits of tube amplifiers and transistor amplifiers because of a patent-patending circuit style. Its vacuum tubes connected to the elastic device, damped marble housing to forestall structure-borne noise and encircled by prime quality quartz bulbs that defend against air-borne noise this advanced equipment delivers ultra-high impulse fidelity with ultra-low distortion.

For digital to analogue conversion, the amp will receive digital signals via optical and coax SPDIF inputs or USB input, it additionally accepts high-resolution PCM and DSD signals. Music is regenerated to analogue signals via the eight internal DACs of the ESS SABRE ES9018. Four channels in parallel are used for every stereo facet to boost accuracy and reduce distortion and noise.
