"The Orpheus", Sennheiser headphones - Luxury Retail
$55,000 Sennheiser Headphones Offer A Rare Audio Experience
The renowned Sennheiser company has revealed a set of new high-end headphones, designed to provide you with unheard of audio experience. Jokes aside, these bespoke headphones have been dubbed Orpheus and feature an innovative electrostatic system working alongside luxurious materials and the highest quality craftsmanship to impress possible customers.
The German audio company had a team of experts working for more than a decade to develop something that is really teasing the limits of what is technically possible in terms of headphones and, judging by the looks of it, we think these headphones are pretty close to perfection.
The Orpheus headphones use an innovative amplifier concept, which basically mixes advantages of a tube amplifier with those of a transistor amplifier. And after careful selection of all materials involved, these headphones ended up providing the much-needed acoustic excellence.
The audio specialists used gold-vaporized ceramic electrons and platinum vaporized diaphragms, for instance, as well as marble from Carrara, Italy, for the amplifier housing. The Sennheiser headphones are more like a trophy, but you’d have to be one incredible audiophile to be worthy of one.
