Dubai – MENA Herald: Sennheiser is releasing the latest generation of its popular and award-winning HD 500 series, enhancing the wired home entertainment headphone range with the audio specialist’s beautifully contemporary design language and even better ergonomics. Powered by Sennheiser’s proprietary transducer technology for truly excellent sound performance, the series offers options ranging from high performing headphones for those unlocking the full potential of their home audio equipment, to premium models that provide a bridge into the world of audiophile sound.
The range of around ear (circumaural) headphones includes three open backed designs, the HD 559, HD 579 and HD 599 as well as the closed back HD 569. All four models let the listener enjoy their choice of home entertainment, with exceptional wearing comfort assured by the large ear cups and soft replaceable ear pads. Sennheiser’s “Ergonomic acoustic refinement” (E.A.R.) design channels the audio signal directly into the ears.
Topping the range is the HD 599, a premium headphone for those seeking sophisticated sound, design and build quality. The HD 599 represents a step into the world of audiophile sound, delivering impressively natural spatial performance from the Sennheiser SYS 38 (50 ohm) transducer. Its superior performance is communicated at a glance via subtly premium design cues – from the brown stitches on the headband to the matte metallic detailing on the ear cups and headband. Combined with its timeless ivory color scheme, these subtle touches contribute to the HD 599’s immediate impression of substance and quality.
The HD 579 provides a similarly high end performance, delivering near audiophile levels of sound that provides a real step up for a smart, great value investment. With design touches such as matte metallic detailing and its Cool Grey color, its quality looks display the new heights of sound performance it brings to the home of listeners.
The HD 559 and HD 569 are the ideal choice for listeners seeking an optimal blend of all-round performance and quality. The HD 559 serves up a satisfying deep bass sound, while the closed back HD 569 provides a more rich and clear bass, but adds further flexibility by making it possible to enjoy a full personal experience of great audio whatever the occasion and without disturbing others. The HD 569 also includes an optional 1.2m cable with an inline push to talk remote optimized for mobile devices.
