DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?

Prestige (Singapore) - - SHOWCASE -

At $86,000, the Sennheiser HE 1 is hailed as the world’s most ex­pen­sive head­phones. But top dol­lar gets you pre­mium qual­ity, and that’s what you get with the HE 1. For starters, the ear cups are ma­chined from solid alu­minum, with the ear pads hand­crafted in leather and lined with an al­ler­gen-free velour/mi­crofi­bre. Then there’s the built-in am­pli­fier; sit­ting on a gor­geous block of Car­rara mar­ble – the same stone with which Re­nais­sance artist Michelan­gelo pro­duced his sculp­tures – it has eight vac­uum glass tubes that help cut both struc­ture- and air-borne noise to pre­vent sound dis­tor­tion. Mean­while, chrome-plated brass con­trol di­als ex­tend its stylish sen­si­bil­i­ties, while the Cool Class A MOS-FET high-volt­age am­pli­fier in the ear cups, which gives a cleaner, finer sound, makes your favourite tracks even more de­light­ful.
