Not too much to this next bit, but not every post is the size of the Fallout: New Vegas strategy guide. Sennheiser has teamed up with Adidas to create the HD 25 Originals, a pair of headphones that “are ideal for everyday listening in comfort and style or when you are working in the club or studio.” → Read More
Sennheiser has a few new gaming headsets that may interest you. Of course, they’re not up on their Web site yet, so give it a minute. You’ve got the PC 360 (“designed for pro gamers,” $299), the PC 163D (“a new dimension in 3D gaming at home,” $209), the PC 333D (“the new dimension in 3D tournament gaming,” $239), and the PC 330 G4ME (“a high-performance headset designed for your… → Read More
There doesn’t seem to be anything particularly wrong with the EZX60 headset. The $79 wireless headset has a digital noise and echo cancellation processor and a battery that will last 12.5 days on standby or 7.5 hours of talk time. All that seems about right these days. The EZX60 is available now if you’re in the market. → Read More
I always wonder what is really meant when people say that BMW, or Ferrari, or whoever, colluded with this or that consumer tech company to create a product. Obviously they didn’t get the lead designer for the 5 series to work on these from the ground up, but at the same time they didn’t hire the guy who created the seat-recline mechanism.
I’m guessing they get a few sketches from the art… → Read More
Hey everybody! Let’s play the “What would you do if you had a million dollars?” game! Unfortunately, due to recent changes in corporation policy and budget cuts, you’ll only have 10,000 USD to play with. And it will have to go towards something music / audio related. Wait, that’s still totally awesome. But don’t tell me what you would do with the cash. Go and tell the guys over at Sennheiser. → Read More
Sennheiser is a reliable brand for mid-range headphones, which is a good thing because there’s really nothing else to go on here. These new headphones, the HD-428, HD-438, and HD-448 all look fine to me, but there’s only so much you can say without actually hearing them. The press release says the 448 offers a “lifelike sound experience,” the 438 a “natural sound signature” and the 428 a “powerful… → Read More
Hey, college kids and other people who want to spend time with “six boys and six girls,” Sennheiser has a job for you. They’re currently running try-outs for two pairs of street teams who will travel the U.S. and Canada this summer to talk about Sennheiser products. If you’re extroverted, poor, and willing to put headphones on strangers. Here’s the description.
N.B. You probably won’t be working… → Read More
[photopress:MX_W1_Set__Large_.jpg,full,center] I pray that Kleer actually takes off but after seeing ideas like this try and fail to gain traction — Zigbee, anyone? — I’m a little dubious. Anyway, Sennheiser just launched the first Kleer compatible headphones which allow you to listen to any Kleer-enabled MP3 player and even share your music with others. The MX W1 headphones are… → Read More
About a month or two ago, Proporta started carrying a limited selection of Sennheiser’s headphones. Most available come in the form of earbuds that are meant for travel, iPods, or on-the-go gadgets. Nothing special, but you don’t go buying a Sony-brand toothbrush without expecting it to be nothing short of an amazing tooth-cleaning experience. → Read More
In the iPod age, headphones have become a fundamental part of lives of practically everyone. While many individuals are complacent living in lo-fi, unaware of the depths their music holds, some intuitive listeners yearn for something better. For those select few, it is often necessary to own two sets of headphones: a pair of earbuds and a pair of muffs, such as the HD650s. Released in 2004 the… → Read More
Given the widespread use of iPods and other portable music players it would seem that headphones are mostly used so as not to disturb others. And while that is one purpose for these direct to your ear mini speakers, headphones can just as easily be used to block the ambient noise around you, and more importantly to provide rich full quality audio when large speakers are unavailable. Of course… → Read More
I have a bit of a love affair with Sennheiser. Back in my gaming days I used a pair of HD-570s. They completely changed my game. As far as I know, Sennheisers are still the dominate headphones used amongst gamers. Sennheiser is showing off a new pair of noise-canceling headphones at CES that could be useful to gamers and commuters alike. In my demo of the product, I was impressed by how… → Read More
I’ve used a pair of Sennheiser headphones since my gaming days (long time ago), so I can attest to their awesomeness. And as someone who exercises a lot, I’m always in the market for a good pair of sports headphones. Well these MX75 might be just the thing. Using a convenient twist to fit technology, the MX75′s provide a snug fit for athletics. It also has various ear piece… → Read More
