Luxury Sennheiser Headphones Carry the Price Tag of a Luxury Car (Seriously!)
Audio equipment manufacturer Sennheiser has unveiled the successor to the company’s renowned Orpheus high-end headphones. The updated model of the Orpheus brand offers an “unprecedented audio experience,” Sennheiser explained. The electrostatic headphone system combines innovative technology and “carefully selected, luxurious materials and the highest quality craftsmanship. The high-end headphones will be handcrafted in Germany and come with a price tag befitting of some of the more popular German luxury cars (without the accompanying emissions scandals): €50,000 (about $54,800).
“With the new Orpheus, we once again push the boundaries and show that we can repeatedly set new benchmarks in excellence and with that shape the future of the audio world,” Sennheiser CEO Daniel Sennheiser said in a statement.
Sennheiser said the new model surpasses “every other headphone system in the world” by offering superior reproduction precision, “exceptional” spatiality, and a frequency response that extends “far beyond the range of human hearing ability. “It is able to deceive our senses in a completely unique way, creating the perfect illusion of being directly immersed in the sound,” explained Sennheiser.
