September 4 2015, 06:00

At IFA 2015, Sennheiser showcased the latest highlights in its product portfolio including the brand’s first closed-back audiophile headphone model, the recently launched HD 630VB which features a rotary bass dial for a customized bass experience. Other highlights include Sennheiser’s acclaimed URBANITE and MOMENTUM lifestyle headphone ranges, including the new MOMENTUM In-Ear Black Chrome.

With the closed-back audiophile HD 630VB headphones, Sennheiser combines the brilliant sound of open high-end models with excellent ambient noise attenuation and an impressively spatial sound image. Specifically developed for the HD 630VB, Sennheiser’s proprietary high-performance transducer is the “heart” of this model. It delivers the power for an intense bass experience that can be customized via a rotary bass dial according to the listening environment, the music being played, and the user’s individual preferences. 

Building on the success of its predecessor, the second generation of Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM series ensures extra wearing comfort and folding headband designs for even greater portability. For their unique combination of performance, design, and the finest luxurious materials, the over-ear model MOMENTUM 2 has just been honored with the “European Headphones 2015-2016” award by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).

For ultimate freedom on the move, the MOMENTUM series has been expanded with the launch of the MOMENTUM Wireless and MOMENTUM On-Ear Wireless earlier this year. Both models include NFC technology to quickly pair Bluetooth devices, while the advanced Active Noise Cancellation technology and 22 hour battery life make them the perfect headphones for a superior listening experience on the move. 

At IFA 2015, Sennheiser also showcased the acclaimed MOMENTUM In-Ear in the new Black Chrome color variant, the newest member of the MOMENTUM family. Beautifully crafted from the highest quality materials, the ear-canal phones feature class-leading proprietary transducer technology.

Another highlight is the URBANITE XL WIRELESS, enhancing the range with cutting-edge wireless technology. Using Bluetooth 4.0, the URBANITE XL WIRELESS offers easy connectivity, with the ability to pair with up to eight devices. The URBANITE XL WIRELESS also features a highly-intuitive touch panel interface on the right ear cup that lets users control volume, music playback and calls using the optional inline mic with a tap or slide of a finger.

The new HD 400 series
Sennheiser launched the next generation of its HD 400 series of over-ear headphones at IFA 2015 with the HD 451, HD 461 and HD 471 models (the HD 451 won’t be sold in the U.S.).

Combining fine audio quality with contemporary style and robust design, the range keeps the listener isolated from ambient noise, while lightweight and durable designs ensure the freedom to enjoy music anywhere. “The HD 400 range is the quintessential choice for anyone wishing to step up to a great audio experience,” says Ivan Kuan, Head of Portfolio Management, Essentials, at Sennheiser. “The new headphones build on the success of our popular HD 400 range with fresh designs. They offer Sennheiser’s characteristically uncompromised blend of audio excellence, reliability, and contemporary looks.” 

Powered by Sennheiser’s proprietary neodymium magnets, all three models deliver excellent stereo sound, while catering to different sound preferences. The HD 451 and HD 461 models feature powerful bass, whereas the HD 471 offers a more balanced, lifelike sound experience.

The new HD 400 series headphones are designed to be the perfect companions to mobile devices and for enjoying music on the go, with closed-back, over-ear designs which keep the listener comfortably isolated from external noise and prevent disturbance of others. Convenience and portability of the range are ensured by strong yet lightweight designs, well-thought ergonomics and tangle-free, single-sided cables, while the soft leatherette ear pads of the HD 461 and HD 471 offer greater comfort even for long periods of use.

The HD 461 and HD 471 feature detachable cables with inline remotes and microphones that make taking calls and controlling music playback on a smart device effortless. These models are available in dedicated versions for Android and Apple iOS devices. The range-topping HD 471 also includes a 3m cable, a gold-plated plug and a 6.3mm stereo adapter to optimize connectivity with home Hi-Fi equipment. This model also comes supplied with a carry pouch for added protection and convenient storage on the go.
