Sennheiser brings signature perfect sound to the inaugural CanJam Singapore 2016
Experience the new flagship HD 800 S and legendary Orpheus through guided listening sessions
Singapore, 15 February 2016 – Audio specialist Sennheiser is treating audiophiles to an exceptional showcase of its audiophile and lifestyle headphones at the first CanJam Singapore 2016 taking place from 20 – 21 February 2016. Taking the spotlight at the premium headphone audio event is the latest top of line, flagship reference headphone, the HD 800 S, recently launched in January, as well as a rare display of the legendary Sennheiser Orpheus HE 90/HEV 90.
The German handcrafted HD 800 S offers even better high precision connectivity options and is now supplied with two connection leads, a 6.3mm connector and a XLR-4 balanced cable to offer even better quality sound from sources with balanced outputs such as the Sennheiser HDVD 800 headphones amplifier. Its predecessor was popular among music lovers and audiophiles for its transducer technology and innovative earcup design, which is incorporated in the latest HD 800 S with improved mid and bass reproduction.
Showcasing alongside the HD 800 S is the Orpheus. Produced in 1991, the Orpheus is still widely regarded today as the best in the world with electrostatic headphones and an impressive 500 volt tube amplifier to fully unleash its sound. With only 300 units produced globally, this is a one-of-the-lifetime opportunity for audiophiles to come up close with the Orpheus.
“Sennheiser celebrated 70 years in our pursuit of perfect sound last year and we aim to bring to the audiophiles at CanJam Singapore a compelling narrative of our continuous innovation and exploration of the next great audio technologies for the ultimate audio experience. ” said Ng Chee Soon, President and Managing Director of Sennheiser Asia, “From the launch of our legendary Orpheus 25 years ago to the debut of our latest flagship HD 800 S today, our products have consistently been industry game-changers. At our booth, we hope to provide visitors with a preview of what the future of sound and Sennheiser have to offer.”
CanJam Singapore 2016 will take place at the Pan Pacific Singapore’s Pacific Ballroom. Listening sessions for various high-end Sennheiser products such as the HD 800 S and Orpheus are available at the Sennheiser booth on a first-come-first-serve basis and attendees may register for them at the Sennheiser booth during event hours. The Orpheus experience is limited to an exclusive 10-minute session per visitor.
Show attendees can enjoy exclusive offers at Sennheiser’s booth during the event days. There will also be opportunities to win Sennheiser products including 10 exclusive pieces of Sennheiser Vinyls, as well as a set of HD 6 MIX, HD 7 DJ and HD 8 DJ each at the show’s Scavenger Hunt and Giveaway (SHaG).
Product highlights at the Sennheiser booth include:
HD 800 S
An upgrade of the HD 800, a firm favourite among music lovers and audiophiles, the handcrafted HD 800 S employs the proven transducer technology and innovative earcup design of its predecessor with improved mid and bass reproduction. Brilliant trebles, precise bass impact and a particularly clear sound image combined with an incredible frequency response bring listeners one step closer to perfect sound.
Sennheiser’s first closed-back audiophile headphones deliver balanced, audiophile sound quality and a distraction-free listening experience, whether at home or on the move. Featuring a rotary bass dial, the HD 630VB allows for the user to customize the bass response according to their personal preferences. With total harmonic distortion of less than 0.08 percent and a coil wire made from pure aluminium, the HD 630VB achieves an unaltered sound image with a precise reproduction of voices and instruments in the mid-ranges and brilliant trebles.
Introduced in 1991, the electrostatic Orpheus still remains the ultimate benchmark for audiophile listening and for all high-end models which Sennheiser continues to develop. The Orpheus offers the ultimate in reproduction precision offering an unprecedented audio experience surpassed only by its successor.
